Scott Robert Olsen

Scott Robert Olsen left this world on March 7, 2009. He was involved in a hiking accident in Kaiser Springs Canyon, Ariz. Scott died doing what he loved and will always be remembered as a great outdoorsman.

There are no words to adequately describe Scott as he was one of a kind. Scott was born on Sept. 8, 1988 and even though he was only with us for a short, he managed to touch people in a way that no one else did.

Scott is survived by his father and mother, Ken and Cynthia Olsen and his three sisters, Jessica Lingley, Kristin and Kelsey Olsen, as well as his grandmother Mary Johnson.

A memorial service will be held on Saturday, March 14 at 2 p.m. at Shepherd of the Valley Lutheran Church, 1500 W. Maryland Ave., Phoenix, AZ 85015. Reception to follow on site.

His family requests that in lieu of flowers or gifts, a scholarship fund has been set up. Please send any donations to the Scott Olsen Memorial Scholarship Fund, 5225 N. Central Ave., Suite 220, Attn: Kristin Olsen, Phoenix, AZ 85012
