CHARLES OLSON Obituary

Charles Robert Olson, 74, of West Greenwich, passed away peacefully on Monday, March 4, 2024 at Kent Hospital in Warwick.  Born in Cranston, RI on July 31, 1949, he was the loving son of the late Harry W. and Irene May (Wilkie) Olson.  

 

Charles was a graduate of North Kingstown High School, Class of 1968.  Charles took on many jobs over the years, including carpentry and fishing.  His favorite job may have been the over twenty years he spent working at Camp E-Hun-Tee, an outdoor wilderness program for troubled youth in Exeter, RI.  There were camps from Maine to Florida with different names founded in 1969 by Jack and Ruth Eckerd.  

 

Charles was a person who would easily entertain a household of friends and make people laugh. 

 

Charles loved boating, fishing, listening to music, watching football, working on and riding his motorcycles, food and the 35 years he spent living on Johnson’s Pond.  He would proudly tell you that he attended the 1969 Woodstock Festival, one of his greatest memories.  

 

Charles is survived by his beloved daughter:  Arlene May (LaPlume) Busby and her husband, Matthew of Griswold, CT; his treasured granddaughter:  Evelyn Rose Busby at home in Griswold; and a sister:  Karen Olson of Coventry; and his many nieces and nephews.

 

He was the loving brother of the late David Olson.
