Stanley G. Olson
Stanley G. Olson, 74, of Onalaska, passed away peacefully on April 1, 2019 with his grandson and daughter at his side at Gundersen Lutheran Medical Center in La Crosse. He was born on July 29, 1944 to Sam Olson and Blanche Walston.
He married Dawn Domnie and they have been together for 41 years. Stanley was in the Navy for 26 years and in the Navy reserves for another 5 years. After his time in the Navy, he worked as a welder for Trane Co. for 12 years. Stanley was passionate about fishing and keeping his yard tidy, matter of fact, keeping almost everything tidy. It has been said that he is probably tidying up heaven right now. He loved coffee, his red truck, and most importantly his 6 grandchildren. The last word of advice Stanley had for you was to get a red truck as you never have to worry about deer in a red truck. What we have to say back to Stanley is, on your way to heaven, watch for deer.
Stanley is survived by his wife, Dawn; his children, Rebecca (Darrell) Junk and David Olson; his grandchildren, Andrew, Kristina, Tanner, Nathan, Miranda, and Joshua; his brother, Jerry (Ellen) Olson, his sister, Linda Wristen; and many other family and friends. He was preceded in death by his parents and 3 sisters.
The family would like to thank Gundersen Hospice for their wonderful care and the staff on the 6thfloor. Dawn would also like to thank her daughter for provided support in this difficult time. In lieu of flowers, memorials preferred to the family and can be mailed to 808 Carmichael Rd. #341, Hudson, WI 54016.
