Not sure what to say?

When we were a young married couple we looked to Ron and Carol and their families as our "examples." We watched them in church, always "perfect." Growing up he served as a great priesthood advisor and remember Ron as our mother, Barbara's home teacher when her husband died. He was a true "minister," so kind, so happy and so compassionate. We have all lost a great man, and it appears that he was a great husband, father and grandfather. We love the Olson's and...

i didnt know Ron, but we stay at Doyles beach house every year and love the Nielsons! He sounds like an incredible father and grandfather. I loved learning that he was always the last one on the beach! What lucky grandkids. Im so sorry for your sudden loss.

To the Olson Clan:

Your husband, dad and grandfather was such a wonderful man. He and Carol were so generous in sharing their home, food (and trampoline!) with all of us growing up. His kindness and gentleness definitely made an impact on me. Thirty years later, he also befriended my father-in-law "Furg" at the VA. I will never forget his kindness to me and my family. I am so sorry for your loss:(. May his memory be Eternal!

The entire Ficklin Family sends our love to Carol and all of the Olson family. Growing up in the neighborhood and then later spending time next door with Carma and Woody was always a highlight in my young life. We loved every interaction we had with the Olsens and have appreciated their friendship for over 50 years. My the peace and knowledge that families are eternal be with you at this time.

It was my pleasure and honor to serve with Ron in the Salt Lake Temple. "We closed the place down together", he said to me. Ron's bright charisma and welcoming smile had a special way of making everyone feel like they were his best friend. My name is Ron also, and whenever he saw me, he always started out with "2 Rons don't make a right", and we had a good laugh. I was always so impressed by his unquivering devotion to and care of his dear wife Mimi. Rest assured that...

I'm honored to be part of HCA student scholarship award in Ron H. Olson's name. I'm 87 years young and have been receiving scholarships for the last 5 years taking art classes. May his memory be eternal and God bless his soul.

I have many fond memories of Ron growing up. From his overly competitive spirit in ward basketball, to him taking us out of young mens to watch the Utah Game in the church closet. They dont come any better than Ron.

I have the best memories of Ron growing up in his same neighborhood. He taught me so many important life lessons. I am thankful for his amazing example!

Ron is one of those truly incredible people - making us all feel like family. Generous to a fault, humble through and through, a true friend and great example of love and service. The hole in our hearts is big, but we look forward to seeing you again. Our deepest sympathies to the Olson Clan. With love, Glade, Kellee & James Knight
