Michael Olof Olson

October 25, 1961 ~ January 24, 2015

Michael Olof Olson, age 53, of New Castle, DE passed away on Saturday, January 24, 2015.

Born on October 25, 1961 in Welch, WV, he was the son of Olof Olson and the late Helen Lucas Olson.

Michael was a master plumber by trade and a member of VFW Post #2863 in Wilmington.

He enjoyed reading and watching war movies in his spare time and loved listening to country music.  Over the years, Michael developed a fondness for history and found great pleasure in studying all there was to know about the past.  With his warm and outgoing personality, he easily made friends.  He loved spending time with his family and friends and enjoyed entertaining others with his singing.

In addition to his father, Olof, he is survived by his siblings, Terry Olson of Stanton, DE; Sharon Kernan (Pat) of Salem, NJ; Nancy Olson of Wilmington, DE and Rebecca Olson of New Castle, DE; his best friend, Kristi Garver; several nieces and nephews and his loving and devoted canine companion, Biddle.

Friends may visit with Michael’s family from 2:00-4:00 pm on Friday afternoon, February 6, 2015 at Spicer-Mullikin Funeral Home, 1000 N. DuPont Parkway, New Castle.  Interment will be private.  Michael’s family cordially invites everyone to join them immediately following his visitation at the VFW Diamond State Post #2863, 8 South DuPont Road, Wilmington DE, just off of Maryland Avenue, where they will continue to celebrate his life.

In lieu of flowers, contributions to offset funeral expenses can be sent to Spicer-Mullikin Funeral Home, 1000 N. DuPont Parkway, New Castle, DE  19720.

    RIP cousin Mike. I remember the going to Delaware with my family and grandma Rose to visit uncle Olof and his family. We had a great time, seeing everyone and swimming in the backyard pool those summers. I know you will be missed!

    Sincere Condolences, Mike was such a fun loving guy, usually with a grin or smile on his face. He will be missed by many. He was way to young, and will serve as a reminder that life is so precious and can be gone in an instant. Hopefully, you can hold on to all of your childhood and adult memories of him to help ease the pain of his loss. There are really no words to express how sorry we feel for your loss. Please accept our Deepest Sympathy and prayers of strength and comfort. Love and may God Bless you all.
    R.I.P Michael we will miss you.

    Michael, I will miss you more then you can imagine. You had a heart of Gold and one of the best personalities that I had ever encounter. You were the best brother anyone could ask for. I will miss your singing, laughter but not the loud music you would play lol Heaven has just received an Angel so behave yourself so you can get you wings. Hug and kiss Mom for me and until we meet again I love very much. Take care love Sharon

    To The Olson Family,
    I am so sorry to hear about Michael’s passing. Although I had not seen him in a very loong, while I do have childhood memories of him and the family. My heart aches for all of the family. How strange life is, I just saw Sharon only a couple of weeks ago which I have not seen in years. Prayers are being said for all of you and may you look to God to find peace and comfort.

    Thanks, Mike, for being such a great uncle to Shane, Danielle, and Kadie. They have fond memories of the times spent with you at Xmas. I know they will truly miss you.

    Hope that you and my son, Paul, meet up together – have a few beers together and lots of laughs!

      Pam I am sure Mike is having a beer with Paul!
      Mikes favorite time of the year was having all the little kids over (especially Shanie) for Christmas to decorate his tree. I hope they all remember and cherish that time with him
      Thanks Sharon and Family

    To the Olson Family,

    Skip and I have many happy memories shared over the years with your family and that is why it is so hard to think that Mike who was so full of living life to the max is gone. We remember his smile and his jokes and his love for his family and friends….his furry friend Biddle especially. The loss of a son and brother is hard to bear and you have our deepest sympathy. Love, Sandy and Skip

      Sandy and Skip, you two have been around Mike since he was little. Sandy I know he was only around 1 when you met him. He was loved for so much but probably his Charm and how he could work a crowd. Thanks for your thoughtfulness. Love Sharon and family

    Dear Olson Family and Michael,

    Everyone knows and so does Michael, he is my best friend and an unconditional companion.
    To most, we seemed complicated, to us it was simple. We had our little family, it was good.
    Life does get in the way though.
    I am now in South Carolina.
    I want nothing more than to be in Delaware tomorrow, February 6th.
    To see the Olson family and our friends.
    To thank everyone for all the kindness, acceptance and love everyone gave me. You all always made me feel apart of the Olson family. Thank you.

    My thoughts and prayers will be with all of you as you celebrate Michael’s life.
    The last words Michael and I shared were “I love you”.
    Michael, I miss you as much as you knew I would and then some.
    Rest in peace my friend.

    Kristi

      Kristi, your words break my heart for I know how hard it is to be without him, to never see him again or hear his voice. Honestly life will never be the same without him. He was so loved by so many people. There were men crying over the lose of their friend, just shows you how he affected everyone. He brought out the love from all that knew him. We had a great celebration one that Mike would have liked. People wrote nice words about the good times they had with him. Kristi you were Mikes best friend and he loved you very much. I was so glad that he had you to talk to. I only wish he would had followed your path so we could still have him here with us. You take care of yourself and you will always be a part of the family. Love Sharon

    I hope the whole family will reconnect again soon when God brings about his promise that’s found in Revelation 21:3,4. That’s a time that my family and I are looking forward to too. I am very sorry for your loss. Please be assured your family will be in my prayers.
