With great sadness the family of Simon Olsen of Leduc announces his sudden and unexpected passing on November 15, 2018 as a result of a tragic workplace accident. Simon, age 34 years, was born in Swan River, MB and moved to Leduc at a young age.
Left to mourn his loss are his mother Diane Olsen; aunts Karen (John Nazarenko) Olsen of Leduc, and Cheryl (Brian) Uhlman of Nova Scotia; cousins Joshua (Tasha, children Jonah and Sophie) Uhlman of Drayton Valley, Jennie (Keegan Balcomb) Uhlman of Ottawa and Graham and Edward Bland of England. Simon was predeceased by his grandparents Orvil and Leonie Olsen of Leduc.
He died a hero’s death, giving up his life to answer the cry for help from a co-worker. It makes us proud, but breaks our hearts. He was far too young to be taken from us. Simon was dearly loved by those who knew him well and we shall sadly miss him.
Romans 8:38-39: “For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.”
