Larry C. Larson


Larry C. Larson, born to Lillie and Joseph Larson in Dalton, Nebraska, in 1937, passed away Jan. 20, 2016 in Gold Canyon, Arizona. Larry lived a full life raising three boys, piloting airplanes, riding motorcycles, fishing and establishing himself as a master of the business deal. Larry loved his wife and family and in turn was known and loved far and wide.

Larry married Sandi in 1967 and this began their wonderful adventure together, even trusting Sandi to fly one of their many planes while he took a nap (with one eye open...). He was a true entrepreneur with a sense of adventure, owning several car dealerships and rental car agencies as well as boars, bars, ranches, vintage Fords, a cabin won in a card game, and many others.

Larry was a man of courage and conviction. He was kind and generous to everyone. He was a lot of fun. Larry enjoyed many friendships and was very proud of his boys. He will be missed by many.

Larry is survived by his wife, Sandi; brother, Rollie Larson (Liz); sister Laura Bredchoeft; sons Greg Larson (Sue), Cary Larson (Jenny) and Jamie Larson (Camie); grandchildren, Derek, Lindsay (Jake), Seth, Chaucer and Caleb; great-grandchild, Calvin; as well as many nieces and nephews.

The family would like to thank everyone for their kind words and great stories about Larry. If a measure of a man’s life is how well he is thought of by so many, then Larry’s life was a life well lived.

A celebration of Larry’s life will be held in Arizona, where he and Sandi wintered for many years. Another celebration will be held in Missoula this summer. Please celebrate Larry’s life with shared stories and continued friendships. Larry was a generous supporter of many causes and donations in his name can be made to the cause of your choosing, or one of Larry’s, the Wounded Warrior Project.
