Death: Aug. 5, 2008
Milwaukee

Kris was the youngest of three boys born to Brian Olson and Karen "Kari" (Pierce) Olson. His brothers are Eric Allen Olson, and Anders Paul Olson (adopted) .

He was an easy baby and as a child , he was always laughing, sweet and such a cutie. He loved to tease his older brothers but it was all in fun.
He did well in school, and was well liked by his teachers. He loved games of all sorts, and was uncannily lucky. He was a Cub Scout, and a Webelo and enjoyed earning badges for his vest. He collected comic books and cataloged them all on his Commodore 64 computer when he was 12 years old.

He was a generous, loyal friend and mourned by them. He never judged others and always accepted them for who they are. He had many, many friends, from all walks of life.

He went to Wauwatosa East High School and was on the wrestling team. He was a high school Graduate. He was confirmed at St Matthew's Lutheran Church of Wauwatosa, Wisconsin.

He started working at an early age, setting up a little table in front of our house, selling lemonade and used toys. He was just 6 years old! We were sure he was going to be quite the business man! By 11, he was helping his brothers on their paper routes, and became a paperboy with his own route at age 12. At 14, he bussed tables at Lydia's Restaurant, and later worked as a cook at the Chancery in both Wauwatosa and Waukesha Wisconsin. He won the Chancery "LEGENDARY SERVICE AWARD" for giving the Mystery Shopper good service.
He was an excellent cook, and worked as such later at O'Briens Sports Bar in Milwaukee. He was a cable installer for several cable television companies. and did roofing with his brother Eric.

He had a wonderful experience working for the Disney On ice Show. Initially he was selling soda and popcorn in the stands, but soon got his own booth and worked his way up to Manager for Snow Cone sales. He earned a number of awards from Disney for his good work in 1997-1998, such as the 'TOP OPERATOR" and " TOP SNOW OPERATOR" . He received a plaque thanking him for being a member ot the Beauty and the Beast team in 1997 and 1998. His travels with the show took him all over the United States , Canada, Mexico, and Australia.

He was in the process of establishing his own roofing company when he died unexpectedly.

He had one beautiful daughter, born in 2003 who has been adopted into a wonderful family . She is growing up nicely and knows that he was her father. She is his greatest legacy, and he lives on through her. She, now, has her own special angel to watch over her.
