Class Memorial Pages\K-1 Shane Olshansky.pdf
Shane was a character. No one was more proud of West Point
and specifically the Class of 1961. He will live in our memories
Shane and I were
Classmates in the Jewish Chapel Squad. He often pointed out to me the picture
of us that is now in the Jewish Chapel. Over the years we relished the brief
moments that allowed us to be together. I will miss seeing him at the Class 55th.
I especially remember
with fondness our shopping while on the Caribbean cruise we took with many other
Classmates. It makes me feel much better to know he was happy in his final
times with us. I do not think any of us can ever recall a time when Shane was
not happy with a unique laugh that filled any room he was in.
Living in Portland
Oregon my wife Bobbi and I will not be able to sit Shiva with you in person, but
please think of us being there in sprit.

As a fellow former
cadet in the Class of '61, I always felt that Shane and I were kindred spirits
in our love for West Point. The separation from USMA those many years ago did
not nullify our commitment to Duty, Honor, Country. I know that Shane, as well
as I, will always be proud of our attachment and acceptance by the Class.
Regardless of where we eventually received our degree, West Point will always be
our Alma Mater. I hope to be present when Shane's ashes are spread at West
