LaRon Falslev finished his mortal sojourn on Wednesday 20 April 2022. A lifelong Benson resident, he was born to Oga Lorenzo Jensen and Sylvia Nelson Falslev and raised in Benson, UT. He only left Benson to tour Germany via Ft. Benning, Georgia with the United States Army during the post WWII occupation.
While he enjoyed Germany, his bride, Doris Hansen Falslev of College Ward, served a mission in eastern Virginia. They were married 10 November 1950. Upon reuniting, they settled in Benson at the old “Ballard Place” in southwest Benson, between Howard Johnson and Gordon Ricks. Always the animal lover and family man, he dreamt of owning a large cattle ranch in Montana, and even made a few trips to view properties, before finally settling on the small dairy, previously owned by Thain’s and Izatt’s. This allowed him to stay close to his brothers who operated farms in Benson and most of his sisters who also remained in Cache Valley. “Ron” loved his dairy animals and had names for most of them. He was always bringing stray cats, dogs, and even the occasional horse home.
To support his 9 children, he worked for Utah State University in the physical plant. He made many friends while keeping the campus presentable. and eventually spent the last couple decades as the primary driver of the garbage truck around campus. Bud Pitcher, a locksmith from Smithfield, Deon Kingsford from Franklin, Albert “Ferdinand”, and “Smitty” (Smith) were some of his favorite co-workers.
His favorite color was green, and he loved to see crops in a consistent spread across a field. He was truly outstanding in his fields of endeavor. Many summer nights he would sleep in his pickup between water changes, milking, and his day job at the university. He was
Only one life, which too soon is passed, only what's done in love will last. also an excellent gardener and loved to share the bounty with friends near and far. He loved Cache Valley and believes it is the prettiest country in the world; the temptation to fish in southern Idaho with brother-in-law Otto Degn or to relax in Logan Canyon always beckoned him from his chores.
Siblings are Wilma (Otto) Degn, Rulon (LaRae) Falslev, George Maurice Falslev, Leo Falslev, Harold N. (Twila) Falslev, Evelyn (Larry) Larsen, Shirley (Hershel) Pedersen, Joan (Heber) Lundberg, Larry J. (RoAnn/Mary) Falslev, Norma (James) Hancey, and Arlene (Gary) Hobbs.
His other love is the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Always a faithful Latter-Day Saint, he attended the temple almost every week as long as his health allowed. LaRon and Doris’ children are Judy (Bob) Davis, Marla Gene (Duane) Brown, Marilyn (Joseph) Creech, Scott (Diane) Falslev, Lynn Falslev, William (Leslie) Falslev, Ronda (Sheldon) Olson, Laurie (Nephi) Wirthlin, and Shane (Angie) Falslev.
