Only the good die young. That is why Scott never made it to his 94th birthday.

What a joy it was to get to know Mr. Olsen. He told stories of a wonderful life. We all need to aspire those types of memories. I will never hear tea for two without thinking of Mr. And Mrs. Olsen. We are deeply sorry to the family for your loss. Please take care of Mrs. Ruth.

I am Scott's cousin, who now lives in the suburbs of Chicago. I first knew him when he came up to my home in Amery, Wisconsin where I grew up. He would come up with Aunt Winnie and Uncle Harold and would spend most of his time fishing on North Twin lake which we lived on. He taught me to fish. I idolized my big handsome cousin.

Loved Scott's stories and his ever-present smile. He was a cousin I always enjoyed talking with and sharing Wisconsin memories. Go Packers!!

I always enjoyed talking to Scott about our shared connection of Carthage College. He was always full of energy and ready to share a story. My condolences to Ruth and the family

I always loved sharing Scott's favorite memory with others. We miss you Scott. In your memory one more time. The first NFL championship game played in Green Bay (the Packers’ 1939 championship bout was played in Milwaukee) carried with it a great deal of angst due to the predicted artic conditions. Just two days before the game, thermometers plummeted to -15 degrees. A crew of 50 men covered the field with 20 tons of hay to keep the field from freezing. A local businessman named Scott Olsen even developed what is believed to be the first sideline heating system in NFL history to keep the players warm.
