Peter A. Olson

July 29, 1963 — May 26, 2019

Peter A. Olson, 55, resident of Jaffrey, NH left us on May 26, 2019 at Dartmouth Hitchcock Medical Center, Lebanon, NH surrounded by family. He was born on July 29, 1963 in Sudbury, MA the youngest of four children of Marion (Butler) and the late Hilbert (Bud) Olson. Peter was raised in Sudbury, MA and graduated from Lincoln/Sudbury High School.

Peter moved to Rindge, NH in the early 1990’s where he began working for Belletetes Inc. in Jaffrey NH as a truck driver. He quickly became an integral part of the company and nicknamed by Jack Belletete as “Pistol Pete”. He was employed for nearly 27 years at Belletetes and grew to become the head mechanic. He felt highly respected and was treated like family.

Peter’s love for his family was unbounded and much of his spare time was spent helping others. He enjoyed muscle car restoration, ATVing, snowmobiling, hunting, fishing and especially his time spent “at camp”.

Survivors include his loving wife, Sherry Olson of Jaffrey, his mother Marion, his children & their families; Leigha; Robert, his wife Bethany & their children Kaylin, Kloe, Malea, Marlee; Ryan & his son Austin; Tori and her fiancé Josh; and Jeffrey (PAL); his three siblings and many nieces, nephews, cousins and close friends.
