Obituary for Stephen Leo Larsen

Stephen Leo Larsen passed away at his home in Nibley, Utah with his loving wife by his side on January 27, 2021 from idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis.
Steve was born in Logan, Utah on September 4, 1944 to Leo Comish and Afton Smith Larsen. His family lived in Idaho and then moved to Cutler Dam, Utah while he was a freshman in high school. He learned the value of hard work and self-reliance while moving sprinkler pipes, hauling hay and working as a grounds keeper at Cutler Dam Power Plant. He earned his Eagle Scout Award.
Because of the positive influence of a local farmer, his bishop and his football/swimming coach, Steve decided to serve a mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. After his mission in Texas, Steve faithfully served in many church callings and his love was teaching. He was a stake missionary while in the army stationed at Dugway Proving Grounds. He directed the Vietnam casualty notifications and honorary military funeral arrangements for gold star families.
Steve was an avid fly fisherman. He spent many wonderful days at undivulged fly fishing spots. He loved to hunt and was a pilot and professional photographer. He spent his 40 year career as a master cheese maker, traveling widely, designing cheese plants and consulting startups.
Steve met the love of his life, Christine Coulam in 2005. They were sealed in the Logan Temple. They enjoyed family get-togethers, serving in the temple, and traveling around the world. Above all, was Steve's love for his family, Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ.
Steve is survived by his wife, Christine, his children: John (Amy), Michael, Paula, Derik, (Ashley), Danny (Eva); Christine's children: Bill Coulam (Jenny), Heidi (Micha) Kempener, Kathryn (Curtis) Fielding; Clark (Karen) Coulam; Jeanette Kincheloe; Allison (John) Anderson; his sisters Julie (Jeff) Wood and Kathryn (Lyle) Holmgren and 31 grandchildren. Steve is preceded in death by his parents and sister Marli (Dale) Nebeker.
The family would like to give special thanks to David Gurule, Mike Boyer and Dr. Vera Carlson of Rocky Mountain Hospice for their tender and professional care over the past year.
Funeral services will be held at 11AM on Wednesday, February 3rd at the Nibley 10th Ward, 2825 South 1000 West, Nibley, Utah a viewing will be prior from 10:00-10:45AM with burial in the Beaver Dam Cemetery. Funeral services will be streamed and watched at https://youtu.be/iG_V_SBZMkg .

A generous thanks to all who attended the 55th Year Reunion at the Lodge at Maddox.  Those attending renewed friendships, laughed a lot, and shared memories.  There were 82 present.  Fourty-eight (48) were classmates.  There was a surprising number who attended our class reunion for the first time.  There were also some who have not attended regularly, who enjoyed the evening.   We all had an excellent meal, the very best company, and great entertainment.  Blaine gave everyone a beautifuly finished cell phone holder that he made by hand - more than 100 of them.  Blaine also made a handsome wooden donation box that will stay with reunion committees.  Jerry used his great MC skills and kept us laughing,  Carol Ann told stories about us.  Some true and most not true at all (they were the best).  Janet sang to us. Her talent still amazes. Dan provided guitar accompaniment for the School Song. We also enjoyed a presentation prepared by Jerry and Aralee highlighting those 21 classmates who have died over the years.  We talked until they turned out the lights on us.  Some of us are suffering from phyical and emontional difficulties and losses, but it did not show.  It is so nice to be part of such a happy group of friends.  

We had not planned to have a class photo, but someone suggested that everyone gather on the steps for a classmate photograph.  Unfortunately, since the picture was spontaneous, some had already left for home. Hope you enjoy.  

A 2023 (60th yr) reunion committee was chosen.  Dennis Fuhriman is the chairman assisted by Virgil Pugsley. Janet Thompson Cook, and Aralee Schothern.  This will be good!

We also solicited donations to kick-start the next reunion and to keep the website supporting and connecting us.  Classmates and their guests raised more than $800. We will now be able to pay for our website subscription and give the next committee the ability to prepare for the next reunion.

Hope to cross paths with you soon, but if not, see you in five years.  Good Health to You!

Your faithful friends:

Blaine Pierson, Jerry and Jan Larsen, and Jay and Judy Nielson

 

Thank you to the reunion committee for the planning--and thank you to each one for coming. I wish I had been able to talk to everyone. We had a delightful evening. Yes, where have the years gone? God bless you all! ~Dixie Conger
