          Robert "Rob" "Oly" J. Ohlson, 46, Hermansville, passed away unexpectedly due to a medical issue on Monday October 19, 2020 at Bellin Hospital in Green Bay, WI. Rob was born on August 22, 1974 in Escanaba, MI, the son of Robert "Bob" and Cynthia (Bray) Ohlson.

          Rob is survived by his parents, a sister: Nicole (Tim) Oja, a nephew: Matthew Oja and his pet dog and two cats.
          He was preceded in death by his grandparents.

His humor, wit and snarky-ness made my day! My husband and I sent memes back and forth with Rob, shared pet photos, current projects and jibes. He will be soooo missed. My heart goes out to all Rob's family and friends. "
