Ramona, I met your dad only once but in that short time could see such a wonderful Godly man that loved you so much. I remember thinking how knowledgeable about the Bible he was and how I could have sat and talked with him forever. May you have peace knowing he is home and free of pain. I love you Ro and will be praying during this difficult time.

Bob was a great man. I have many memories of the family when I was younger. And listening to him in the radio, he was our local legend! Many hugs, thoughts, and prayers to you all. May God give you all the love and strength you need. God Bless,

Bob was a great boss and a great mentor to many. He played a big part in my future career. I had the pleasure to work with Bob at WJPD in Ishpeming, MI. He was a person that you wanted to remain in your life forever. A wonderful man who inspired many with his caring and concern. His family can be proud to read these great remembrances from so many.

I too grew up with wmpl and Mr. Olson was a local celebrity. Ramona... thinking of you and sending my sympathy. We were both lucky and blessed to have such great fathers. Here's to celebrating a life well lived. Chrissy

Bob was a local radio legend on WJMS here in Ironwood as I was growing up. Our loss was WMPL's and the Copper Country's gain. He was a solid reliable reporter and our neighbor on the radio. He was missed when he left Ironwood, and I pray that he now rests in peace. My sincere condolences to all his family and friends.

Love you in Jesus and Mary, Sheila S Ward

Mr. Olson was a very special man who touched the lives of many. I never had the chance to meet him, but was touched by the incredible stories I heard of the life he lived from his daughter Perian. To the Olson family, my thoughts and prayers are with you during this difficult time. God bless his beautiful soul.
