Gregory Gene Olson

Gregory Gene Olson was born on March 13, 1988, in Lander, Wyoming to Carl Russell and Deborah Mae (Starrett) Olson. Greg passed away at his home in Lander on Thursday, July 22, 2021.

He attended Lander schools, played football, baseball, soccer, swimming, and bowling.  He continued to love anything that had to do with the outdoors; hunting, fishing, camping, golf, and four-wheeling.  Greg always had a way of making people smile, no matter what the situation.  He enjoyed spending as much time as possible teaching his sons how to be true outdoorsmen.

Greg worked as a carpenter with his father as partners in their company.  He will be greatly missed.
