Steven R. Larson

1947 ~ 2010

Our dearly loved Steven R. Larson passed away September 30, 2010. He was born May 19, 1947, in Provo, Utah, to goodly parents, E. Dixon and Shirley Simmons Larson. He grew up in Orem, a graduate of Orem High School and Brigham Young University. He served in the National Guard. Steve simply made the world a better place with his friendly and gentle ways. How can we adequately pay tribute to this great man in a few lines?

He is survived by his wife and best friend, Cheryl Jones Larson, and his two sons, Jace Steven and Jess E. Larson (no father could be prouder!). He was a devoted son to his dear mother, Shirley Larson. He was the best big brother to his sister, Michelle Larson Crawford, who happened to marry Steve's best friend, R. Kim Crawford. Many other family members mourn his passing.

Steve has successfully operated his own land surveying business since 1974. His business associates would describe him as a man of intelligence and integrity. Steve took great pride in doing his work accurately and completely.

Steve loved cars (although he never had time to put that Corvette back together!), hiking, photography, drawing, fishing, puttering and constructing, discussing politics, and especially the game of basketball. In fact, the last thing he did, was play a game of basketball with his son, Jace. He was so proud that his son Jess played on the Mountain View High School basketball team. But mostly, Steve was a caretaker, always giving selfless service to his family and others. He was a true and honest friend. He was a man of simple tastes (his favorite food was watermelon) and was most comfortable wearing a t-shirt and jeans.

Steve was a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. For many years Steve served in the Cherry Hill Third Ward as a scout leader, where he influenced many boys, including his sons. He made the best bird houses ever!

We will love you forever and a day!
