Marvin Brian Olson, age 59, of Westbank BC, passed away on April 11th, 2020. He was predeceased by his parents Bill and Ella Olson. Marvin will be sadly missed by the love of his life Patti Butts, his loving children, Bryan, Amy, and Emily; along with his siblings, Cheryl (Bradley), David (Barbara), Dale (Melyssa), as well as extended family.
Marvin was born in Atikokan ON, and later moved with his family to BC in 1973 where they settled in the beautiful Okanagan valley. Marvin eventually decided that this was where he was going to stay and raise his family. He was an amazing father, a great friend, and incredibly kind to all. Marvin had an admirable work ethic and was lucky enough to have a job that he loved, along with coworkers who cared for and respected him. Over the years Marvin gained many great friends who loved him and will miss him dearly.
Marvin, was an avid outdoorsman, who loved hunting, fishing, camping and any other reason to be in the beautiful BC countryside. A perfect day for Marvin would be spent with friends or family; leaving the house before daylight with a coffee in hand to escape the city and head for an adventure in the backwoods.
Unfortunately, due to the current state of this world we will be having a celebration of life for Marvin at a later date. Please check Castanet, Facebook or with family for an announcement. We will be sure to give as much notice as possible, so that all who loved Marvin may attend.
