John was born on March 5, 1944, in Clinton, Mass., to Howard D. Olson and Ruth (Melvin) Baie.

John enjoyed coyote hunting, fishing up north, photography, playing harmonica, and spending time with family and friends.

He really enjoyed meeting up with his high school classmates once a month for lunch. He never was too shy to share his opinion, and he had one on most subjects.

He was preceded in death by his parents; and nephews, David and Daniel Deutsch.

A visitation will take place on Friday, July 5, from 5 until 7 p.m. A private service will take place at a later date.

In lieu of flowers, a donation can be made in John’s name to the Fort Atkinson Wisconservation Club.

The family would like to give special thanks to Nitardy Funeral Home which is handling the arrangements.
