Morris Henry Olson, son of Morris Olson and June (Verworn) Perrine, was born August 12, 1954 in Missoula, Montana. He attended schools in the Missoula area and graduated from Sentinel High School in 1972. After graduating he began working at various mills in the Missoula area and spent 40+ years as a Mill Wright and Mill Wright Trainer. He was known for his hard work and punctuality.
Moe was an avid outdoorsman and one of the best fisherman in Western Montana. He had a presence about him and always made an impact on the people he met. Moe was a jokester pulling pranks his whole life, all the way to the last week in the hospital. Above all else, he was a devoted father, grandfather, brother, uncle and tremendous friend. He will be greatly missed by all who had the pleasure of meeting him.
Moe is survived by his two children, Jim (Ronnie Spicknall) Olson; Julie Robinson; four grandsons, Tanner Olson; Bridger Olson; Cody Robinson; Logan Robinson; siblings, Miles Olson; Claire Perrine; Kathy (Mark) Adams; Larry Perrine; uncles, aunts, nieces, nephews and a host of friends.
