Frederick Olshefskie

August 19, 1941 — April 25, 2021

Frederick Charles Olshefskie, passed away on April 25, 2021 at age 79.

He was born in Shamokin, PA on August 19, 1941. He was a graduate of St. James High School in Chester, PA. Fred was a computer programmer working for various insurance companies including INA/CIGNA, Penn Mutual, and AlG. While he was a resident of West Chester, PA, he lived most of his life in Norwood, PA. Fred was the loving son of the late Frank Olshefskie and Catherine Olshefskie (nee Paulukinas).

Fred is survived by his beloved wife Dorothy Olshefskie (nee Wagner); his brother, Albert Olshefski, sister-in-law, Veronica Olshefski, sister-in-law, Barbara Brenner, and brother-in-law, Richard Wagner. He is further survived by two nieces and five nephews and their families.

Fred was an individual who lived life on his terms. Although he may not have done what was expected he lived his life with little regrets.

More than anything else in his life his relationship with God was primary. Fred loved nothing more than getting in the car and driving, listening to Biblical messages on the radio. These drives centered and calmed him in ways nothing else could do. The fact that he is now with the Lord gives great comfort.

Fred was also a “Dad” to his beloved pet "children". Fred would rather spend time with them than anyone else in the world. He will be sorely missed by his surviving cat son, Hankie.

Fred enjoyed watching sports and cheering for his favorite teams. Additionally Fred enjoyed investment matters, especially given that numbers were the thing that most interested and mentally challenged him.
