Scott "Otter" Olson

October 12, 1969 ~ July 12, 2020 (age 50)


Passed away on July 12, 2020, at age 50.  Beloved son of Richard (Rich) Olson.  Dear brother of Rick (Laurie) Olson and Craig (Christine) Olson.  Loving uncle of Alyssa, Erynn, Ryan and Abby Olson.  Special friend of Brooks Fleming, Tom & Paul Lipsky, and Kim Erickson.  He was preceded in death by his mother, Carole Olson.  Further survived by many other relatives and friends.

Scott graduated from Brookfield Central in 1987 and still remained friends with many of his classmates.  He obtained a bachelor’s degree from UW-Stout in hotel & restaurant management.  He worked in the travel and hospitality industry in Chicago, Green Bay, Minneapolis, Nashville & Milwaukee for many years.

Scott made friends everywhere he went.  In his final days, the outpour of support from his friends was truly a reflection of the type of person he was.  He was a great friend to many.

Scott loved spending time with his nieces and nephew at sporting events, watching them when they were young, visiting with them or just hanging in the back yard for some family fun.

Scott was an avid sports fan and enjoyed attending numerous sporting events.  He was a diehard Cubs and Bears fan.  You could find him at Wrigley Field, Miller Park, Fiserv Forum, Camp Randall, and always at Lambeau Field for the Bears/Packer game cheering on the Bears.

Traveling in Wisconsin was a big part of Scott’s weekends.  Lake Arrowhead with his buddies, Eagle River, Door County and family reunions at Lake Lawn were amongst some of his favorite places.  He also loved to travel to Florida with family and friends.
