Robert E. Olmsted, Jr.

It is with a broken heart to tell you that our Hero has passed away at home on Wednesday, March 17, 2021, surrounded by his wife Annie, son Matthew, daughter Melissa and his faithful canine companion Dawson. He was born on March 3, 1950 in Germany the son of Robert E. & Caecilie (Kurz) Olmsted, Sr.

He is survived by his wife Annie; son Matthew (Gail) Olmsted and a daughter Melissa (Tom) Sutter; precious grandchildren Colin and Riley Olmsted, Maddie and Erin McCann. His sisters: Donna (Jeff) Richardson, and Cindy (Dave) Linder; brother-in-law Michael (Kathleen) Rezendes, and Mario Rezendes; sister-in-law Judy (Wes) Pierce and all of their children and grand kids. Everyday he said you and our children and grand kids have made me a lucky man. We had a great life together of 50+ short years.

Robert’s family all have given him happiness, love and joy. The times spent together with his children, their spouses and grand kids have made him a very happy man. Thanks to all of his great friends that have visited, called and enjoyed his F.B. posts. He had many great people in his life. Please don’t be offended if you were left out, otherwise we would be writing a book.

Robert will be with his parents and in-laws and a brother Vic.

Special thanks to JourneyCare for their help and especially his nurse Shenna. A celebration of life will be held at a later date. Thank you REO. Memorials may be given in his name to an animal shelter of choice. Laird Funeral Home, Elgin is assisting the family. 847-741-8800 or www.lairdfamilyfuneralservices.com.
