John Eric Olson
Aug 24th, 2022
John Eric Olson, 81, of East Dennis, MA passed away on August 24, 2022. Born in Boston, MA, he was the son of Eric A. Olson and Sonia V. Olson. John grew up in Easton, MA and graduated from Upsala College in New Jersey. After many years in construction as a skilled drywaller, John became a correctional officer where he retired.
John is survived by his beloved wife of 26 years Filomena and her four children, Maria McDonald (Arado), Robert Arado, Lisa Arado, and Christopher Arado; John’s son Stephen and his wife Stacy of Marshfield; three grandchildren, Brandon Olson, Holly Olson, and Tiffany Olson; and one great grandson Myles Rose. John was preceded in death by his son Michael and his daughter Cheryl.
John’s passion was religion, understanding the bible, and the life of Jesus Christ. John was always ready to lend a hand, share a prayer, or offer support to anyone in need. John was also an avid reader who enjoyed reading about multiple topics, including his two favorites: religion and nutrition. John’s heart was always in the right place and made time for a conversation on the telephone or in person for anyone that needed advice or just wanted to talk.
A graveside funeral service will be held on Friday, September 16th at 11:00 a.m. at the Oak Ridge Cemetery in South Dennis, MA.
In lieu of flowers, donations in John’s memory may be made to St. Jude Children's Research Hospital at https://www.stjude.org.
