Tyson Wayne Olson
“Hotan Ho Wasté”
August 29, 1988 ~ September 25, 2022
Tyson made his journey to the Spirit World Sunday, September 25, 2022 at CHI, St. Alexius Health, Devils Lake Hospital. He was welcomed home with open arms by his Dad and big brother Troy and the rest of the family members. He was 34 years old.
Tyson was born on August 29, 1988 in Grand Forks, ND to parents Marilyn Thompson and Kenneth Lynn Olson Sr.
Tyson attended school at Four Winds, Poplar Middle School, Poplar High School and graduated with the class of 2008 in Great Falls, MT.
On November 28, 2006 he became the proud daddy to his only child Keli Marie Olson. He loved her unconditionally and treasured every moment he got to spend with her. When he wasn’t spending time with Keli, he was hanging out with friends or shooting hoops.
Tyson had a crazy sense of humor. Always joking around with everyone he knew. He knew how to brighten your day and put a smile on your face or as he would say: “I will turn that frown upside down!” He was a big kind-hearted guy. Tyson loved sports especially basketball in his younger years. Tyson’s favorite team was the Texas Longhorns. He would play basketball everyday with friends. Tyson liked watching different sporting events on TV, but most of all he liked to attend sporting events when any of his nieces or nephews played.
Tyson will be missed by many family and friends.
