Bob was born June 29, 1931, to Mable Irene Flowers and James Fredrick Olsen in Salt Lake City, Utah.Bob's greatest passion was being with family, friends, and enjoying the great outdoors. Our fondest memories will be of our fishing, hunting, and water skiing trips. A man of great love, compassion, and understanding, always ready to lend a listening ear and a hug. Having a talent to turn sorrow into laughter by his teasing personality. We will truly miss him.
