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.

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.
