Glen D. Olsen, age 82, son of Clara Malinda and John A. Olsen, was born June 3, 1915, in Hayden, Utah.
He spent his early years in the Neola area and at one time ran a farm North of Neola.
He was a very hard worker and a lover of animals.
Glen worked at the C.C. Camp during those years and at odd jobs around the area. He served his country i the U.S. Army during World War II from 1942 - 1945 in the German theater with the Medical Corps, having the responsibility of bringing the wounded from the front lines to where they could receive treatment.
He worked for Roosevelt City for many years and after retirement there, left Utah and worked in California, where he spent the rest of his life, except for some summers when he would come back to his home in Neola, always going back to California for the winters. Later, poor health prevented him from returning to Neola. During those years of poor health and sickness, Clarita Manaois and her family nursed him and did all they could for him for which he was very grateful and special thanks is extended to her for this service.
He is survived by brothers and sisters: Zola Spencer, Geneva Whiting, Richard Olsen, Toni Gardner, Evan Olsen, all of Neola; Clifford Olsen, Luella sullivan, both of Roosevelt; Lerwill Olsen, SLC; Clara Timothy, Orem; and Myrtle Sorensen, Scipio.
Funeral services were held at 11 a.m., Saturday, December 13, at the Neola LDS Chapel.
Burial was in the Neola Cemetery under the direction of Hullinger-Olpin Mortuary and with military honors by the American Legion Basin Post #64.
