In Memory


Steve Olsen

Steven Lee Olsen (2/3/1946 ~ 9/12/2010)

Steven Lee Olsen, beloved husband, son, brother, uncle, and friend, died on Sunday after a courageous battle with pancreatic cancer.

His first word was "light," and he was well on his way towards a career in electrical engineering when, as a toddler, his first phrase was "plug it in." Steve worked at the U. of U. Chemistry Department, Hospal, and Datachem Laboratories. He was proud of the fact that his own company, Red Rock Analog Design, Inc., specialized in the remote control of demining vehicles for the military.

Steve never saw a mountain that he didn't want to climb, nor met a person that he wasn't willing to help. Steve will long be remembered for his compassion, his intelligence, his unfailing courtesy, and his courage.

Funeral services will be held on Friday, September 17, 2010 at 11:00 a.m. at the Sugarhouse Stake Center, 1621 South 1100 East, Salt Lake City, Utah. A viewing will be held Thursday, the night before, from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m., and before the service on Friday from 9:30 to 10:30 a.m., at the same location. In lieu of flowers, please make donations in Steve's name to The American Cancer Society.
