Michael Alexander Olsen, was born on April 11, 1992, and lost his battle with depression on May 28, 2014 at the age of 22. "Our beautiful son Michael decided his time on earth was complete."
Michael graduated from Fridley High School in 2010 and was a kind and gentle soul, through and through. He had a passion for playing the piano, glass blowing, and skateboarding, and loved bon fires, disc golf, gaming, and spending time with his many friends. He was a caring person, who always provided a listening ear.
Michael is survived by his parents: Joe and Beth Olsen of Coon Rapids; siblings: Aaron (Sam) Olsen, Chad Olsen and Halle Olsen, all of Coon Rapids; grandparents: Richard (Nancy) Olsen of Marinette, Wis., Lois Lundberg of Hayward, Wis.; great-great grandfather, Alton Olsen of Marinette, Wis.; numerous aunts and uncles; many cousins; other loving relatives and friends; and beloved dog, Hunter. He is preceded in death by grandfather, Rod Lundberg; grandparents: Alex and Pearl Koldos; grandmother, Ruth Olsen; and uncle, Don Olsen.
If you or someone you know is struggling with depression, encourage them to speak their feelings and seek help. You are not alone and there are people who want to listen, and do care very much. We love you Michael. You will be deeply loved and missed by all who knew you.
