Trevor James Olsen

August 21, 1987 — May 10, 2024

Trevor James Olsen was born in Logan, Utah on August 21, 1987, and passed away May 10, 2024, at 36 years of age.  

Trevor was precocious from the start, coming into the world 10 days late and by cesarean section. He was the 5th of 6 children born to Blake and Jill (Gerstner) Olsen. Trevor was adored by his parents, older brothers Mike and Matt, and sister Stacey. He was a celebrated addition to the family after the loss of his infant sister, Stephanie. Trevor was a happy child and was known for having a contagious laugh. He loved being silly and enjoyed being at the center of it all. He loved crossing the yard to spend time with Grandma and Grandpa Dickey. He also enjoyed spending time with his aunts Kristie and Kelley and uncles Josh and John and his cousins on the Gerstner side of the family. We all remember the handsome, happy, toe-head boy that brought so much joy and laughter everywhere he went. When Tyler came along 2 1/2 years later, he gained not only a little brother, but a best friend and shadow. 

Trevor’s childhood was spent trying to catch up to his big brothers, being doted on by his only sister, and doing all the things little boys dream of. He attended Lincoln Elementary, played soccer and little league baseball, and loved spending time outside. His dad taught them all to love the outdoors, and took them on many hunting and fishing trips. Some of our fondest memories of Trevor include watching he and Tyler fish the pond (puddle) in front of Grandpa Dickey’s shop where they caught, released, and re-caught the same poor fish. The smile on his face and his zest for life will never be forgotten. 
 
Trevor attended South Cache Middle School, Mountain Crest, and Cache High. His mischievous smile and love for monkey business followed him into his teenage years. Trevor broke his collarbone in a skiing accident at Beaver Mountain and was so proud of the trophy scar and bump that he maintained, even after the bone healed.  Trevor was handy and enjoyed building things. He worked in construction and concrete. He was a hard worker and took pride in a job well done. Trevor married Shannon Maughan in December of 2018. Trevor and Shannon had no children together, and were fortunate to enjoy living in Cache Valley. Trevor was thoughtful and known to drop in on family and inquire about the welfare of those he had not seen in some time. 

Trevor had a long-term battle with addiction in his adult years, but he never failed to see how blessed he was to have had a happy childhood and a big, loving family. He extended care, warmth and kindness to others who were deep in their own struggle. He loved a good turkey steak, tater tots, a cold Mountain Dew and Macy’s sugar cookie. He was loyal to his mom and spent the last 2 years by her side, selflessly helping her through numerous health issues. 

Trevor is preceded in death by his brother and best friend Tyler, Grandparents Tom Dickey, Linda and Jerry Gerstner, and infant sister Stephanie. He is survived by his wife Shannon Olsen, father Blake (Heidi) Olsen, mother Jill Gerstner, brothers Mike (Lacey) Olsen, Matt (Cindy) Olsen, sister Stacey Avery, step siblings Zach Stott and Nicholle Liebelt, grandparents Kaylene Dickey and DeWayne Olsen as well as his four nieces and one nephew and numerous aunts, uncles, cousins, and friends.
