Stan Olson Obituary
Former Estes Park resident Stan Olson, 88, died July 28, 2017, at his home in Corvallis, Oregon. He and his wife, Joanne, moved to Estes Park in 1983, where they built their dream home on Devils Gulch Road at the base of the granite slabs below Gem Lake. Both Stan and Joanne were actively involved in the community--Stan, as counselor at Harmony Foundation and Joanne, as the Estes Valley Library children's librarian. Together they enjoyed many wonderful years in the Estes valley welcoming friends and, especially, their grandchildren, who loved visiting "Meema and Poppy". Stan loved the time he spent golfing at Estes Municipal and other courses up and down the Front Range. He was actively involved in Men's Club and his hobby of making and altering golf clubs nearly became a full-time business. Those who played with him said "he was an excellent golfer, a tough competitor, a great partner and a true gentleman on the course." Joanne's health issues necessitated a move in 2003 to a lower elevation in Redmond, Oregon. Stan is survived by his children, Chris Boatwright (Corvallis, OR), Adrienne Olson-Tracy (Michael) (Albany, OR), Tim Olson (Sarah Cooper) (Kirkland, WA), and Carla Olson (Mark Baldwin) (Corvallis, OR); nine grandchildren, and six--with two more due any day--great-grand children; and brother, Ike (Salt Lake City, UT). He was preceded in death by his loving wife, Joanne; brothers, Jay and Ted; sisters, Marjorie, Ethella, and Maxine; and grandson, Daniel Boatwright. A Celebration of Life will be held Saturday, September 9th, 2017, at Trysting Tree Golf Course, Corvallis from 2:00-5:00 p.m. Contributions in his memory may be made to: Oregon State University Women's Golf Foundation, Oregon State University Women's Basketball Foundation, or Benton Hospice Service, Corvallis OR.
