Eugene "Gene" Duane Olson, 75, Arlington, died Mar 30, 2011, in a hospital at Sioux Falls.
He was born Feb 21, 1936, to Gerhard and Harriet "Annie" (Pickering) Olson on a farm west of Volga. He graduated from Volga High School in 1955. After graduation, he worked at the Volga Creamery.
Apr 5, 1957, he married Gloria Larsen. In 1958, they moved to a farm northeast of Arlington where they raised their four children. He continued to be a dairy farmer until his retirement in 2000 when his sons continued the operation.
He enjoyed his family and animals and was an avid softball player and Minnesota Twins fan. He and his wife traveled to Alaska, Europe, Florida, Washington, DC, the Rose Bowl Parade, Branson, MO, Nashville, TN, Rapid City, Hawaii and went on numerous fishing trips. In his retirement, he enjoyed sitting at the kitchen table watching out the window at his bird feeders, watching the traffic go by or just to see when the "boys" arrived.
Survivors include his wife, Gloria; his sons, Bradley (Carol) of Arlington and Bryce (Tammy) of Bruce; his daughters, Renae (Brian) Jager of Lake Norden and Robyn (Tom) Randall of Salem; 12 grandchildren; two great-grandchildren; two sisters, Carol Oppold of Harrisburg and Donna (Clinton) Nelson of Estelline; one sister-in-law, Francis Olson of Volga; one brother, Wayne (Michi) Olson of Rapid City; and one brother-in-law, Leelan (Karen) Larson of Sioux Falls.
