In Loving Memory of Rolf S. Olsen

Rolf S. Olsen July 28,1944 – December 6,2016


At this time of sorrow, our esteemed Website Administrator, Rolf Olsen ‘59 passed away on December 6 at the age of 72.

He was a giant among us all. He was an amazing person with a sense of humor and cared deeply about our “47” Alumni Association of the Deaf and about the school. He was a website administrator, and emeritus board member in that order for 17 years. On June 5, 2013, Rolf received a special Dedication to “47” Award for his dedication to “47” Alumni.

Furthermore, as a Website administrator since 2012, he brought out the best of “47” history on the website. He did an amazing job as he learned so much in such a short time and in such creative ways to make our website attractive, user-friendly and meaningful. Even when he moved to Florida, he continued to be our website administrator and kept in touch with us to see how we are doing.

Please browse through our website: Hinda Kasher, a board member, will be our Website Administrator and will continue to oversee the wonderful work Rolf has done for the website.

Thank you for visiting “47” Website. Long live “47”.
