Darius Duane Olsen

June 23, 1997 - June 25, 2016

On June 25, 2016 this world lost an amazing young man with a kind heart and the ability to bring a smile to the faces of others through his unique sense of humor. Darius Duane Olsen left us too early. He was born to Cyndi Rai and Delmar Olsen on June 23, 1997 at their home in the Spokane Valley, WA. He is remembered for his kind heart, loving spirit, amazing sense of humor, skills at chess and willingness to help others at any time. He was home schooled until 5th grade, then attended Freeman school district and graduated from Ferris High School this spring. He was registered to attend Eastern Washington University this fall. His sense of humor lent to his success in drama and brought a smile to the faces of friends and strangers alike, lifting the spirits of anyone he came in contact with. He will be missed by all and thought of daily. He leaves behind his loving mom, Cyndi Rai; father, Delmar Olsen; four sisters: Victoria, Elena, Moira, Francesca; niece Kalina; Grandma Debbie; Grandma Jerry Jo and Grandpa Virgil Olsen; Great Grandma Helen; Uncle Orin; Aunt Yvette; Aunt Bridgett; Great Uncles and Aunts: Steve, Jeff and Michelle, and Phil and Betty; and many friends for whom he made the world one of smiles and laughter.
