In Memorial


Wayne Olsen passed away suddenly in Kamloops BC on March 11, 2018 at 75 years of age.  Born in Lumby, BC on August 2, 1943, Wayne is survived by his son Leonard Olsen; daughter Penny Lesage; daughter Crystal Olsen; grandkids Kailen, Jack, Jocelyn, Devon, Travis and Stephanie; nieces & nephews Tammy, Diana, Brenda, Michelle and Allen.  Wayne was predeceased by his mother, Gladys Campbell and his father, Oscar Olsen.

Wayne was a jail guard at KRCC from 1972 to 1978.  Later in life he was an alcohol counsellor, always looking for a “new one” to chat with.  He enjoyed playing darts at the Kamloops Legion, Franklin and Moose in the 1970’s.  He was also a fisherman, hunter and avid outdoorsman.  Wayne was a fun-loving prankster who was always in for a good meaningful time.  A story teller with the wildest stories of his youth, Wayne continued his legacy at Ridgeview Lodge in Kamloops; he made the news in 2011 with a slow speed chase on his scooter!

There will be a Celebration of Life for Wayne Olsen at 10:00 a.m. on Saturday, March 31, 2018 at the Lutheran Church, 2481 Sunset Drive, Kamloops.  Donations to Alcoholics Anonymous would be appreciated and if you read this please go hug your loved ones.  Condolences to the family at DrakeCremation.com.
