Rich Olsen - R.I.P.
Rich Olsen - aka Richie Poor
We've just received word that virtuoso band organ arranger Rich Olsen (who often went by the pseudonym Richie Poor) has passed away. Although the cause of death is not yet known, Rich had been having health issues for quite some time now.
Rich created 43 band organ rolls during his career:
That's how I got to knew Rich and what a nice guy he was. We started to make other band organ rolls. People wanted his music, and I was happy to sell his music for him. I was happy to help band organ fans out, so that they can keep playing new music on their organs. I hope we still can keep doing this today. I know Rich would like us to keep this going for him. I know no one could ever match the Rich Olsen style, but everyone has his own arranging ideas. I also thought of Rich as my father because he was there when I needed him, and he helped me out with things that I needed, like writing letters. I knew that he was having some health problems, but did not realize they were that bad. But now he is with my father in heaven, looking down at me and still helping me out with this work. I never got the chance to travel to California to meet him or John Malone. I was planning a trip there this year, but now it is too late.
Rich, I will miss you always. I will never forget you. You are in my heart and always will be.
Thank you for seven years of service to me and my company. I will try my best to keep this going for you, and I will see you soon on the carousel.
