Todd J. Olson, passed away on January 12, 2021 at Providence Hospital in Everett, WA, as a result of complications from brain surgery. He is now in God’s loving arms. He is survived by his wife, Dorothy, 7 stepchildren, and 18 grandchildren of Lynnwood, WA; his parents Jerry and Diana Olson of Incline Village, Nevada; his sister Tracy Santos of Las Vegas, Nevada, and his niece Sabrina Santos of Las Vegas, Nevada.

Todd was born in Evanston, Illinois.  When he was a young child his family moved to California.  Todd spent his grade school and high school years in Danville, California.  He graduated from The University of Idaho  with a major in Accounting and Corporate Financial Management.  After graduation in 1989 Todd moved to Seattle and completed his CMA (Certificate in Management Accounting).

His Accounting and Finance background led him to several companies in the Seattle area including Washington Natural Gas, Microsoft, and Teague.  He held positions as a Controller, Senior Project Analyst, and Senior Financial Analyst.

Todd had a great love for music and enjoyed a large collection of recordings from many artists. Skiing, golf, hunting, and fishing were among his favorite sports.  His most memorable experiences were the hunting and fishing trips with his dad taking him to Alaska, Argentina, and Canada.  He was an avid fan of the Oakland Athletics baseball team and the Seattle Seahawks.

Todd was loved for his great sense of humor, thoughtfulness and kindness to his many friends and co-workers. He was a wonderful son, brother, uncle, husband, stepfather and Papa Todd. He will be fondly remembered for his smile, kindness, quick wit and generosity.

In light of COVID-19, a memorial service will be held at a later date, when it is safe for everyone who knew and loved Todd to attend.  ­­­­

    I had the great pleasure and privilege of working with Todd at Teague for over 9 years. He was the social butterfly and resident comedian at every office he visited. I don’t think I ever saw him without a smile on his face. I’m blessed to have met him. Todd you will be truly missed!

    To all of Todd’s family and friends – we join you to mourn Todd’s passing. Todd holds a very special place in my heart as I had a chance to work closely with him at TEAGUE. His knowledge of both Boeing and TEAGUE were invaluable to me when I first started at TEAGUE.

    Todd was special in so many ways. He loved to laugh, loved to tell good stories and loved life. He was kind, generous, and he will be missed.

    Rest in peace my friend…

    A wonderful nephew and a great man! Todd was a memorable “Ring Bearer” at our wedding. We had many successful hunting trips together and connected me to many great recording artists. He will be missed by all. Our love goes out to Diana, Jerry, Tracy, Sabrina and Dody.

    Todd’s warm smile, easy laugh and kind-hearted manner came across within about .8 seconds of meeting him, and never wavered. Got his sense of humor from his dad, who I still remember pulling my leg about shipping all his freight via Yellow, while I was working for CF. (He had no freight) And now I work for Yellow, 30+ years later! Trips to Seattle for all those Vandal-Huskies games were mere excuses to go see Todd. Love Todd, love North Lake Tavern Pizza thanks to him. Who says “Todd” isn’t a Biblical name? It’s in mine: Philippians 1:3.
