Timothy Allen Olsen went home to his Lord and Savior on July 28, 2021. He was born on September 15, 1951. He was dearly loved by his parents Robert and Joyce Olsen. In 1957 his younger brother Joe joined the family. Tim was the fifth generation to live on the family ranch where he spent his life working alongside his family passing on many lessons of life in the Lord to those he loved. God blessed him with his lifelong love Janet. They shared 51 years of wonderful memories serving the Lord and watching their family grow praying always 3 John 1:4 “I have no greater joy than to hear that my children are walking in the truth.
Although Tim was born in 1951 his true birth came in 1978 when he gave his heart and life to his Savior, Jesus Christ. In 1983 he was licensed into the ministry. He loved the Lord and let Christ’s love influence him and those around him. He joyfully served the Lord and spread the gospel during his years of teaching and preaching from Montana to California and Las Vegas. Tim loved his church family and the time of his passing, he was serving on the pastoral staff along side his son, Shane, and good friend, Howard Neckels at First Baptist Church in Deer Lodge.
Tim is greatly loved and survived by his wife Janet, his son Shane, daughter-in-law Lisa, his grandchildren Robert, Ryan and wife Abby, and great-grandson Carter, as well as his daughter Tanya and granddaughter Isabel.
Tim was preceded in death by his parents Robert and Joyce Olsen, brother Joseph Olsen and his nephew Carrie J. Olsen.
