Obituary for Allan Olson

Allan  Olson
Allan passed away peacefully on July 22, 2015 at the Yorkton Regional Health Centre, surrounded by family.
Allan was born on October 25, 1943 in Preeceville, SK and was the son of Martin and Katherine Olson. He was baptized and confirmed in the Lutheran faith.
As a boy he began his education at North Prairie School, and attended grade 9 at Preeceville School. He completed his high school years at the Lutheran Collegiate Bible Institute at Outlook, SK., after which he attended the University of Saskatchewan. He later decided to finish his education at the Central Pentecostal College in Saskatoon, SK. Dad had many amusing stories of his years at school that he loved to share with his family.
He loved working on the family farm and after completing his education, spent several years there before heading to Yorkton where he met his wife Carlotta. Allan and Carlotta married March 10, 1979 and raised three children together.
Dad was a salesman at heart and held various positions in the field throughout his life. He was also actively involved in many organizations such as the Voice of the Handicapped, Toast Masters and the church. He had a very strong faith right from childhood; he loved to read God’s Word and knew it through and through.
But one of Dad’s favorite things was to spend time with his family, which was amplified by each addition of another grandchild. He loved to make small talk with his grandchildren and tell them stories. He always wanted to hear about what they were learning in school which would lead to stories about his own childhood. He looked forward to family birthdays and holidays and loved to see his whole family together.
Dad leaves to celebrate his life and cherish his memory, his wife of 36 years, Carlotta: his 3 children, Steven, (Petrunia) Olson, Amanda (Fred) Skorobohach, Alanna Olson (Brook Pilipow); seven grandchildren; Celina, Lilianna, Emma, Isabella, Thomas, Napoleon and Nicholas; sister Darlene (Warren) Mann; as well as many nieces, nephews, relatives and friends.
Dad will join his grandson Frederick John; parents, Martin and Katherine; and many other friends and family members in Heaven.
Papa we will miss you and love you forever.
