Ronald Olson Obituary

Ronald Dorman Olson, 53 of Deary, Idaho, passed away unexpectedly Saturday, February 11, 2023.

He was born to Verla and Dorman Olson February 22, 1969. He attended Deary High School and has remained in the area since.

His first Job was firefighting at Bohles Cabin for CPTPA.  His employment following  were at Edwards Mill, at the U of I steam plant, and for Mark Reynolds Construction.

Total Lawn Care was his first landscaping job, which he loved and eventually encouraged him to start his own grounds and lawn service, and working for the City of Deary and the Cemetery District.  Ron was very particular and meticulous when it came to doing a great mow job which led to several individual patrons who relied on his loyal and dependable lawn care.

At the time of his death, he was employed for the Whitepine School District as a substitute janitor and grounds keeper.  Him being a kid at heart, was at ease with the students and staff at the Bovill School.

He was a funny and kind Janitor, and the kids and staff loved him.  He will truly be missed there.

He was always interested in Electronics and anything Technical.  He was our go to guy when we needed his tech expertise .

He loved tinkering on 4 wheelers, cars and pickups.  It seems like he was always working on his or that of someone else.  He loved camping and going on 4 wheeler rides with friends.  He enjoyed target shooting and showing off his many homemade targets.

Ron is survived by his father Dorman Olson,  a brother (Kermit)Douglas & Lynda Olson, sisters Brenda & Rick Lohman, and Bonnie & Doug Browning all of Deary, in addition to Aunts, and many cousins, nieces and nephews.   He was preceded in death by his mother, Verla Olson.   

He will be remembered for his loving spirit and generous heart.  We will cherish our memories and keep him close in our hearts forever.
