Kenneth Arvid Olson

Kenneth Arvid Olson was born June 5, 1956, in Fitchburg, Massachusetts to Arvid and Ethel Olson.

After graduating high school, he studied engineering at Kenai Peninsula College in hopes of working on the Alaska pipeline.

After the pipeline shut down, he left Alaska seeking employment and eventually settled in Tucson, Arizona where he worked at Southwest Gas for 27 years before retiring in 2015.

Kenneth loved going on outdoor adventures, riding his Harley, shooting targets and hunting.

Everyone he ever met loved him because he had a good heart.

In a situation of need, he would give a total stranger the shirt off his back.

He was famous for his heartwarming hugs and the proverb which he lived by “Always do the right thing.”

Kenneth was also a devout believer in the Lord and attended church regularly.

He is survived by his wife, Debi, 4 children, 5 step children,  24 grandchildren and 5 great-grandchildren who take great solace in knowing he is in heaven watching over all of them.
