John (Jack) Olson died peacefully in his home on December 6, 2017 in Solvang, CA. He was 96.

Mr. Olson was born on July 6, 1921 in Superior, WI, to Oscar and Tillie Elizabeth Olson. From 1942-1946, Jack proudly served as a US Merchant Marine. He was also a distinguished Mason. He graduated from USC in 1952 with a BS in Pharmacy. He was self-employed at Olson Drug Stores in Los Angeles, Lompoc and Buellton, CA. Many of you knew him as The Biggest Druggist in Town!

Jack had an infectious sense of humor and a tremendous passion for life. He obtained his pilot's license in 1969. When he wasn't compounding a prescription, you could often find him at the Santa Ynez Airport, telling tall tales. Jack was loved and respected by all and he will be missed!

Jack is survived by his wife, Kelly Olson of Solvang, CA.; son and daughter-in-law, Paul and Jeannine Olson of Chico, CA. and grandson, Oscar Olson of Ben Tré, Vietnam.

A Celebration of Life will be hosted at the Santa Ynez Airport in 2018!
