James Richard Olver

April 27, 1988 – March 20, 2021
It is with great sadness that we announce the sudden passing of our son James Richard “Mini” Olver of Terrace, BC, at age 32, on March 20, 2021.
James went to school in Terrace, BC graduating from Caledonia High School. He then took a welding program at North West Community College and following Boilermaker Training at BCIT.
He joined the Boilermakers Lodge 359 which took him to work locations throughout the province, later achieving his Red Seal in both Welding and Boilermaking.
James leaves behind his parents Colleen and Glen Olver, his sister Angela (Aden), his grandfather Jim Olver, aunts, uncles and cousins. He also leaves behind the love of his life Darcie Petuh.
Not only a very kind and caring person, James would give you the shirt off his back even if he didn’t have one. In his short life, James touched the lives of many people. He will be sorely missed by his family, friends and Union brothers.
Rest in Peace Son.
