Halvor Miller Olsen

November 30, 1932 — September 21, 2023

Bountiful, UT

Halvor Miller Olsen passed away on September 21, 2023, age 90, of natural causes. He was born November 30, 1932, in LDS Hospital, Salt Lake City, Utah, the son of Joseph William Olsen and Ruby Annetta Miller. His wife Amy Floisand preceded him in death in 2019. He is survived by sister Marjorie Moody of West Bountiful and sister Karen (Dwaine) Hatch of St. George. 

He served as a missionary for 2 1/2 years in the Norwegian Mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints where he became acquainted with the Olsen Family Norwegian ancestors and started his love of Genealogy work.

Halvor graduated from Davis High School in 1951. He earned his BA Degree in education from Brigham Young University and an MA Degree in Education from the University of Utah.

He taught in several Elementary Schools in the Salt Lake City and Bountiful areas for 30 years. He was a favored Teacher and loved to be with children.

He enjoyed compiling the Olsen Family genealogy, all the written records, stories, and photos for over 40 years.

He also loved working on the farm in West Bountiful where he spent all his life. He loved animals, raised cows and horses and chickens and ducks, they all had names. Also growing hay and various crops and fruit trees were his delight. He lovingly taught his many nieces and nephews to ride horses and do other fun farm-centered jobs.

The love of his life was Amy Floisand. They met at the Sons of Norway organization monthly meetings and events where they danced and enjoyed activities. They fell in love and married in the Salt Lake Temple in 1977. They had a lovely home by the farm in West Bountiful and lived there 42 years.

Hal, as he was called, enjoyed developing the property of the old farm into a mass of beautiful homes called the “Olsen Farm Estates.”  Where families enjoy living in this fine community to this day.

We say goodbye to our loving Brother, Uncle, and Friend with sadness but love and gratitude for the huge impact he had on our lives. His memory will live on in our hearts and be a constant reminder of the importance of family, love, hard work, sharing, teaching and most of all … being resilient. We love you Halvor.
