During his lifetime my father, Dan Reed Olsen, wrote extensively about his life and his family. He grew up in the Depression, lost his mother when he was 16, sailed to China in the Navy, served a mission for the LDS Church in Denmark, and found purpose in life when he married my mother. After a long career in banking started over as a turkey farmer. When Mom died he married Cindy. Through all of this he was dedicated to the gospel of Jesus Christ.
This is his story in his own words.
