Carl Olson, 92, of Sitka, AK, formerly of Churchs Ferry, ND died Saturday, April 4, 2009 at the home of his step-daughter and her husband, Alice and Robert Schell, his residence since March 24, 2008.
Memorial services for Carl William Olson will be Saturday, April 11 at 2 p.m. at the Sitka Elks Lodge.
Carl William Olson was born July 27, 1916, in Churchs Ferry, ND, the son of Pedro and Margaret (Upsal) Oleson, emigrants from Norway and Sweden.
From age 11 until age 89, Carl worked on farms in the Churchs Ferry area, and also did stints as a mechanic and pipeline worker in the Midwestern states.
He was in the U.S. Army from 1942 through 1945, serving in North Africa, Italy, France and the United Kingdom. In later years, he would cry when talking about what he saw during World War II.
As with many who lived through the Depression, Carl was very conscious of material things. Whatever he owned needed to be well-worn and useless before it was replaced — and that was done only with much to say about the price of the replacement, his family said.
A hoarder, when he moved into an assisted living facility in Devils Lake, ND, he had many "treasures'' to dispose of, not necessarily for cash. When he acquired something old, his favorite expression was "That's a good one.'' They were all antiques and worth a lot until being appraised by a professional; after that his treasures then went for the usual garage sale prices.
Carl married Emma (Lauckner) Riedriger June 8, 1983, in Shakopee, MN.
When Carl lived in his own home, he was the official grass cutter and snow clearer for the old folks in his neighborhood, a service he kept up until he moved at age 87.
As long as he could drive — which was until "someone backed into him" (he rear-ended) and he lost his license — he was the driver for those with no car.
After moving to Sitka, he lived part of the year in Arizona, where he pursued his recreation at the casinos. In Sitka, he was a frequent walker on Halibut Point Road, often going down to Cascade Convenience Store where pull-tabs were available. He believed that if you didn't get out and walk and get some exercise, you'd end up in bed and not be able to get out of it. He took his last walk on the day before he passed away.
Along with going to casinos and doing pull tabs, he loved reading the newspaper and watching WWE and the news on TV. The economy was of special concern.
He was a member of the Veterans of Foreign Wars and Sitka Emblem Club 142.
He remained sharp until the end, and had a very good, sometimes dry, sense of humor, his family said.
"He outlived the majority of his old friends, but enjoyed the new friends he made in Sitka and Arizona,'' his family said. "He was one of the great old folks who go through this world.''
Survivors include a niece, Gail Bozeman of Essex, MD; stepdaughters, Alice Schell of Sitka and Donna Stone of Shakopee, MN, Dorothy Jaeger of Fargo, ND, Vivian Schroeder of Fargo and Byrdia Spidahl of Devils Lake; stepsons, Bruce Lauckner of Shakopee, Roger Lauckner of Carrington, ND, and Donald Lauckner of Crary, ND; as well as many nieces and nephews.
He was preceded in death by his twin sister, Gladys Christine Wilson, and his wife, Emma Pearl Olson, who died Dec. 20, 1994.
The family suggests that in lieu of flowers, donations be made to the Sitka Emblem Club 142, Box 275, Sitka, for its carpet fund.
