Hello Patty, Lauren and the Olson family,
I have known you and Peter for a very long time. I always enjoyed coming to the store. Not just about advertising in the Journal Inquirer, but to chat, laugh and trade stories (especially about my unpredictable brother Matthew)! Peter, to me, was larger than life. He was always doing something regarding the store and all the other things he was involved with. But he would say the same thing to me. "I want to go riding."
I miss you all. I wish you peace and love.

So sorry to hear about Peter. He was a true gentleman and one of my favorite clients. Not only will he be missed by many, but contributed so much to the community. Patty, my thoughts are with you. You were very lucky to have shared your life with him.

Our Condolences to the Entire Olson Family .
I worked for Peter when I was in High School . A great boss and a great guy . He always went above and beyond for his customers and his friends and family . He did a lot for Rockville & Vernon his business was a mainstay in the community. What this guy accomplished in his lifetime few people achieve. You should all be very proud of him I’m sure he was very proud of all of you . There are not a lot of people with the work ethic of Pete Olson . May He Rest In Peace .

Patty,Lauren, Peter II, My deepest sympathy on the loss of Peter, My mother worked at Ladd and Hall for quite a few years. And Peter was very good to her,and when she retired, he gave a small party . I always thought when you closed the buisness Peter would relax and enjoy the rest of his years. I was shocked to see this obituary in the journal. Again my deepest sympathy on your loss of Rockvilles hardest working buisness man. Wayne Wohllebe
