October 5, 1946 - December 30, 2019
Thomas L. Olson A longtime resident of Bethel Park, PA, died peacefully on December 30, 2019 at the age of 73 after a long battle with Dementia and Esophageal Cancer. Tom worked over three decades of his life at his beloved Robert Morris College (later became University). Tom became Director of each department with which he was associated with, Director of Admissions, Director of Residence Life, and lastly, retired as Director of Compliance for Athletics. Tom dearly loved Artemis (his "Kitty"), coin collecting, college football, target shooting and fishing, but most of all he loved telling stories… he loved to tell you a story and make you laugh. Tom's second marriage blessed him with becoming a stepfather to, and who he will be dearly missed by: Dr. David G. Sheldon (Valerie), Andi E. Long (Jeffrey), and Heather A. Rangel; and step-grandchildren to whom he was "PAP": Brandon Sheldon (Angela), Abby Hilpert, Megan Long, Emma Sheldon, Jordan Sheldon, Jack Sheldon, Katie Sheldon, Jesse Rangel and Ellie "Bellie" Rangel. Tom is survived by a sister, Jayne Emma Frauenholz, and nieces and nephews: Josanne Hardesty (Larry), Jan Vankirk (William) and Dane Frauenholz (Christi) and many great nieces and nephews. Tom was predeceased by his parents, Clarence Elmer Olson and Della Grace (Heller) Olson, his siblings, Loring Lou (Olson) Reese, Barbara Alice Olson, June Louise (Olson) Ulsh. Tom will also be missed by his dear friends: Jim and Pam Christner, Keith and Michele Merlino, Vic Nardo, and Mary Reichold. Being respectful of Tom's wishes, there will be no service. To all who helped care for Tom (nurses, caregivers, hospice, Doctors), we (Tom's family) are eternally grateful for your gentle and loving care that was shown to Tom throughout this journey.
