  1. Uncle Bo, best uncle ever. I feel so blessed to have all those fond memories with Uncle Bo, Aunt Nancy and all of the Olson family. My thoughts and prayers are with you. Love you, Julie

  2. Bo was simply the best, brother in law, uncle, and all around good guy. Every summer he and Nancy welcomed the family into their home. All the kids came together. The Davern kids, the Spartz kids, the Bradford kid and were welcomed into the Olson home to play, fight, and eat them out of house and home. Those memories are the best and never to be forgotten by the cousins. For myself the memories of the early days are so special. When Bo got his pitiful army pay, he and Nan would invite me to go for Egg Foo Young. Still love that stuff, but never found it as tasty as we enjoyed back then. They are two of my favorite people in the world, and I will miss my wonderful brother in law. Rest with God Bo. Love you.

  3. Uncle Bo was always so good to my siblings and I. So many wonderful memories. You are definitely one of the good ones. You will be missed more than you can imagine!

  4. CandleImageUncle Bo will be greatly missed. He was a good man and always so much fun to be around. Trips to Colorado will never be the same. Sending love and hugs to all the Olson’s.
    Love, Janet and Paul

  5. Dear Nancy and Sandy
    I have nothing but fond memories of Carl from the very first moment I met him over 8 years ago. He was always so encouraging to me as I was going through a difficult time in my life…he reminded me of my own father and the love and support my dad would have given me. He was always so happy to see me when Sandy when we would come over for beer thirty. He would make his famous Beef and Noodles and always insist on me taking home some leftovers…so delicious. He was a great cook of comfort foods 🥰
    Definitely a void in this strong family but he left an amazing legacy to carry on…Carl was a family man and loved his Nancy more than anything. He will be missed and celebrated forever.

  8. Condolences, hugs, and prayers to Nancy, Sandy and your family. Carl was a sweet and funny man and we have good memories of our 4th of July’s together. As he rests in peace, prayers the good memories will see you thru these sad times.
