Olsen Paul Web

March 8, 1944 – March 3, 2018

It is with heart breaking sadness that we announce the sudden passing of Paul Henning Olsen on Saturday, March 3, 2018. Beloved husband of Linda, much loved father of Peter (Jennifer), Jeffrey (Carol) and Diane (Roddy) and Papa to Mitchell, Dean, Evelyn, Cedric, Ava, Mia, Andrea and Nathan. He will now be reunited with his father Ejnar, mother Sofie and sisters Elsie and Inger in Eternal life.

Paul’s favourite memories of his childhood were the times he spent on his sister’s farm in Egypt, Ontario where he fell in love with agriculture. Summers spent feeding the livestock and tending to the crops while during the school year part time jobs at his local pharmacy delivering on his bike and working in the kitchen at the fish and chip restaurant would provide a strong work ethic that he carried for his life.

In Grade 8 he met the love of his life, Linda, and they dated throughout high school until marrying at the tender age of 20. True partners in everything, they built a wonderful, adventurous life together, travelling the world, growing their family and building their business. Their love was one of deep passion and mutual respect for one another.

Paul founded Brookdale Treeland Nurseries in 1977, humbly starting his dream with a pick up truck, a shovel and a heart full of determination. Through many years of hard work and smart moves he built the company to be one of the largest growers in Canada with locations throughout the country. He inspired many young entrepreneurs within the industry to take risks and bet on themselves and became a founding member and President of both Landscape Ontario and Canadian Nursery Trades Association.

Community service was a critical part of his DNA and he served as a member of the Nobleton Lions Club for 50 years and as President for several terms. Many lifelong friendships were built through this organization and everyone knew Paul could be counted on to run events and volunteer until his final day. He and Linda were also members of the Nobleton United Church for many years and spent much of their free time helping out around the church and mentoring young people and serving those who needed help. A man of principle, with unshakable values, Paul was also a very proud Canadian and would tell everyone who would listen that we live in the greatest county in the world.

Friends will be received at the Egan Funeral Home, 203 Queen Street S. (Hwy 50), Bolton (905-857-2213) Wednesday afternoon 2 – 4 and evening 7 – 9 o’clock. Funeral service will be held in Holy Family Church, 60 Allan Drive, Bolton on Thursday, March 8 at 12 o’clock noon officiated by Reverend Carol-Ann Chapman from Nobleton United Church. Followed by cremation. If desired, memorial donations may be made to the Nobleton Lions Club or Nobleton United Church. Condolences for the family may be offered at www.EganFuneralHome.com

Condolence from Janice Gervais on March 5th, 2018 7:27 am

Linda and Family

I imagine compared to the majority sending you messages, I have known Paul for a relatively short period of time as a fellow Tuesday afternoon curler. Our shorter acquaintance though still showed me what a lovely man he was. Just last Tuesday I asked him if he could help with a need in the community and without a moment’s hesitation he replied “leave it with me” and I felt totally assured that the job was in good hands.

I am so very sorry for your loss. He will be missed by all of us.

Condolence from Marc and Crystal Bonnici on March 5th, 2018 8:51 am

Condolence from Debbie Buchanan on March 5th, 2018 5:39 pm

From your in-law Debbie

Among the remarks made in the obituary, are some of Paul’s accomplishments. I have just been talking with Peter and he told me about the many, many more that could have been included. With all Paul had achieved in his life, he certainly had every reason to be big-headed. But nothing could be further from the truth. He was so down to earth, a gracious man. And funny. His family has so many reasons to be proud of him.

I always enjoyed my conversations with Paul. I will really miss that.

Condolence from Barb Newman on March 5th, 2018 5:43 pm

Dearest Linda and family,

I was devastated to hear of Paul’s sudden passing, he was such a fantastic man so well loved by every person who’s life he touched.

Your pain will eventually lessen and your heart will soon brighten with the wonderful memories of a truly great man.

Love and hugs to you all

Condolence from Mark Wilson on March 6th, 2018 6:26 pm

My heart is in deep sadness at the loss of this great man. Standing here in Montana, thinking of him, I can honestly say I can hear his hearty laugh and see his huge smile. Mr. Olsen was one of the most optimistic people I have had the pleasure of knowing. He was a dear friend of my dad’s and the Wilson family. I am grateful for backyard BBQ’s at the Olsen home. I am grateful for BTN hiring Ron Wilson to build your offices. I worked on that job as a young man. I am grateful for Paul’s incredible eulogy of my father 20 years ago. My heart is sad that his family will no longer get pick up the phone and hear his voice. His wisdom and insights have helped countless people over the years . The Olsen family must feel blessed knowing that Paul was a man of faith. Heaven just got a little brighter. My love to the Olsen’s. God Bless.

We are thinking of you today and holding you in our hearts and prayers.

Condolence from Sue & Gino DiFebo on March 7th, 2018 11:04 am

Linda and Family,
Our thoughts and prayers are with you during this time of sorrow.
Such a great man. Such a great loss.
Paul was always thinking of others and how he could help out…he wouldn’t even acknowledge his own efforts, for as he stated to the crowd at the Pasta supper, upon thanking everyone else for their hard work and effort, he didn’t mention himself, but someone shouted out “what about thanking Paul”…Paul’s response ” Paul doesn’t need thanks, because Paul just does these things, that’s who he is”. Always giving and never taking. We have all lost a wonderful person and we must consider ourselves fortunate that Paul was and will continue to live on, as an influence in our community.
Sue & Gino

We were shocked and deeply saddened to get the news of Mr. Olsen’s (Paul’s) passing.
