Oley retired after serving his country for 23 years as a Chief Radioman for the United States Navy. His passions were dancing and working with his wood.

He is survived by his wife, Vickie Shuler Olsen of Gaston, South Carolina; his brother, Richard (Karen) Olsen of Niles, Michigan; brother, Thomas (Cindy) Olsen of Lerner, Texas; sister, Sandra Lyons of Cadillac, Michigan; his son, Oley John Olsen of Virginia Beach, Virginia; step daughter, Teresa (Barry) Roof; grandsons, Andy and Clay Roof of Lexington, South Carolina and many nieces and nephews.

Chief William Olsen will rest in his favorite and first love with a burial at sea. His family would like to thank all of his care givers from Palmetto Health, and his two favorite doctors; Dr. Richard Morrow and Dr. Payton Faust. Oley will be loved and missed beyond measure. Sail on Chief, fair winds and following seas! Rest now, job well done.
