Jay Richard Larsen (1939-2021)
Jay Richard Larsen passed away on Monday, February 22, 2021 of major organ failure. He was born on October 6, 1939 in Albuquerque, Bernalillo, New Mexico to Leonard Alfred Larsen and Nellie Orrilla Arter Larsen.
He is mourned by his spouse M. Nancy (Lewis) Larsen; by his children: Heidi (John) Lamb, Michelle (Paul) Eagar, Amy Larsen, Jay (Kirsten) Larsen, and David (Courtney) Larsen; and his grandchildren Jake, Brigitte, Claire, Aiden, Bradley, Chloe, Mallory, Erik, and Marcus.
He spent his 81 years in service to God and family. He loved his Savior and fully lived the gospel of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. He served a mission in Germany as a young man, he was a Bishop and served in several Stake Presidencies. He was a Scoutmaster, a Temple worker for more than 20 years in the Los Angeles and Logan Temples, a Couple Missionary (2002-2004) to the Europe Central Area in Family History Support in Frankfurt, Germany, he worked with Special Needs Mutual in the northern Logan area, and he was actively searching for family history in Norway.
He was Vice-President of Finance and Comptroller for ITT Gilfillan, an aerospace/defense company. He graduated from BYU in Business, with an MBA from USC; and was a Certified Management Accountant.
His family was his life. He nurtured each of his children individually and devoted his time to them. He provided for his family in an exact and provident fashion to fulfill their wants and needs. He loved and cared for his wife, Nancy, and allowed her to soar. Together it was a rich and full life.
As we try to continue on without him, we have the utmost assurance of a family reunion sometime in the future that will last forever because of the gifts of our Savior.
Interment will be in North Logan Cemetery by Webb Funeral Home of Preston, Idaho.
