Andrew Olsen, CRNA passed away two weeks ago. Andrew was a respected member of his community and his death is a significant loss for the CRNA community. He was a former AZANA Secretary and a highly skilled CRNA - but most importantly, a loving father to his two children.
AZANA worked with Andy's employer to establish a fund dedicated to his children's education:
Andy's memorial is this Friday at 5:30pm at Thompson's Funeral Chapel in Goodyear. His children have requested that guests not wear black clothing.
A message from former AZANA President, Mike MacKinnon:
My name is Mike MacKinnon and I worked with Andy at Arizona Heart Anesthesia for a number of years here in Arizona.
Andy was a hard working family man who intensely loved his kids. He was a friend and coworker to many and his loss will be felt by the anesthesia community.
Andys primary concern was providing for his children after he was gone. To that end we are collecting money here to then be placed in a 529 in his children's names as an endowment for their future education.
Please donate and honor Andys life.
