Shane Ohlson passed away on September 9, 2021 at the age of 52 in Murray, UT. His battle with serious medical issues in recent years showed his courage in facing life challenges. Despite the pain and many procedures, Shane stayed strong until the end.
Shane was raised in Ogden and Syracuse by his mother, Peggy Ohlson and father, Gordon Lee. Shane was a hardworking, dedicated employee at Associated Foods for 20 years before retiring. He was an avid beer lover and a huge fan of Henry Rollins, Stephen King, Star Wars and Marvel. He shared his passion for these things with all of the people he loved.
Shane met his soulmate, Angel in 2007. She was there by his side through everything, and they built an amazing life together. Together they enjoyed going to concerts, holding game nights with friends and were regulars at the Salt Lake City Comic Con.
