Sadly, John Selmer Olson passed away on March 27, 2024 in his 96th year.

John was born January 4, 1928 to John and Martha Olson in Dinant, Camrose County, Alberta. He was the 5th of 10 children.

John loved playing, coaching and watching sports. He worked many years in construction as an operator or supervisor while building roads around Alberta.

John met and married his wife, Julie, in 1995 settling in the Pigeon Lake and Mulhurst areas for several years before moving to Wetaskiwin, and finally to Camrose. John enjoyed renovating and remodeling each residence to his standards.

Our family feels very fortunate to have been able to listen to his stories, jokes and wishes, right up to his passing.

Forever loved and remembered by his wife, Julie; his sons, Larry (Louise), John (Tracey), and Dale (Dee); seven grandchildren; nine great-grandchildren, and siblings Marvin, and Ervin (Diane).
