Obituary

Darrel Dean Olson, age 81 years, of West Bend, formerly of Hubertus was called home to be with the Lord on May 23, 2022 surrounded by his loving family.

Darrel was born on November 5, 1940 in Angelica to Martin and Alice Olson  (Pingel).  He was united in marriage to Mary Elizabeth Forst on May 7, 1966 at St. Agnes Catholic Church in Green Bay.

Darrel graduated from Bonduel High School in 1958.  Attended college and served in the United States Air Force.  He went on to work at IBM as a Field Engineer in Southeastern Wisconsin. After realizing early retirement was not for him, he continued his craft at Miller Brewery and freelance consulting.

He enjoyed golf, bowling, playing softball and the outdoors. He took many vacations and road trips with his family who brought him his greatest joy. He always set the best example and gave us everything in life. We are forever grateful.

Darrel and Mary were snowbirds for many years, splitting their time between Wisconsin and Florida. The couple are members at St. John’s Lutheran Church in West Bend. 

Those Darrel leaves behind to cherish his memory include his wife of 56 years, Mary; three children, Laurie (Frank) Lassandro, Lance (Heidi) Olson, and Annie (Butch) Klumb; five grandchildren, Evan Klumb, Skylar (Bryce) Pochinski, Hunter Olson, Derek Klumb, and Landon Olson; sister, Glory Curry; and sister-in-law, Dolores Olson.  He is further survived by nieces, nephews, cousins, other relatives and friends. 

In addition to his parents, Darrel was preceded in death by two sisters, Billie Olson and Dorothy Moesch (Olson); and three brothers, Martin, Paul, and Neil Olson.

Memorial Service will be held on Saturday, June 4, 2022 at 11:00 am at St. John’s Lutheran Church (809 S 6th Ave. – West Bend, WI  53095) with full military honors to follow the service.

The family will greet relatives and friends on Saturday at Church from 9:30 am until the time of service.  Inurnment will be at Maple Valley Cemetery in Suring, Oconto, Wisconsin later this summer.

The family would like to thank the doctors, nurses, and staff at The VA Medical Center and Horizon Hospice for their care and compassion.
