It is with great sadness we acknowledge the passing of George Olsen, a longtime resident Lake Peekskill, who died peacefully on October 8th at the age of 84.

George was born in Hanover, Germany and served in the US Army as a paratrooper. In addition to working for Valad Electric for 50 years, George was a long-time councilman and a dedicated community volunteer. He served for years as Treasurer and Member of the Board of Trustees of the Putnam Valley Library. We’ll miss him tremendously, and we extend our condolences to his wife Betty, his children Erik and Georgette, and his three grandchildren: Heather, Melanie, and Steven.

Visiting hours are on Thursday, Oct. 10 from 2-4 and 7-9 p.m. at the Heritage Funeral Home at 35 Morrissey Drive in Putnam Valley. A funeral service will be held at 10 a.m. on Friday at the funeral home.
