Olaf Howard Egge was born on October 30, 1927, at Wadena Hospital. Olaf was the seventh of eight children. He grew up on the family farm, located 5 miles south of Nut Mountain, and attended Glengariff School from grade 1 to 8. After school, he worked on the family farm until the age of 25, after which he worked for SaskPower for 7 years. The money he earned at SaskPower funded the construction of the barn on the family farm, which still stands and is in use today. Following his tenure at SaskPower, he returned to work on the family farm with his brother Joe. Olaf and his mother raised Ruth after her birth in 1954.

He enjoyed the bachelor life for many years. In 1979, he married Eva Maas, and they continued farming until 1991 when they moved to Kelvington and built a new home. After relocating, they developed a passion for travel, visiting places such as New York, Alaska, Minnesota, BC, Toronto, and making many trips to Par Hill, Greenwater, and various locations in Saskatchewan. They enjoyed camping, fishing, and visiting with relatives and friends wherever they went. Olaf also spent 10 years driving the transit bus.

Olaf had a fondness for baking and serving coffee, especially when Eva had the ladies over for quilting. He liked going for drives to view the crops and visit family. In his last years, he particularly enjoyed having guests over for coffee. The wonderful neighbors he had allowed Olaf to stay in his home for as long as he did, and he was grateful for the snow removal, window washing, meal makers, bread makers, and the assistance from home care personnel.

His faith sustained him in both good and difficult times. Olaf is predeceased by his wife Eva, his parents Ole and Karen, and siblings Alvin, Harold, Joe, Beulah, Torsten, Mabel, and Helen. Left to mourn Olaf’s life are niece Ruth and David Johnson, Margaret and Terry, Karrie and Ryan (Brayden, Mikayla, Andrew, Autumn, Miya, Ryder), and Kevin. Stepchildren include Shirley Wisemiller, Tom Maas (Devin, Ryan), Betty and Donald Fletcher, Steven and Brooke (Elsa), Melissa, and many nieces and nephews.
