Resident of San Jose
Jim Larsen, 84, passed peacefully Thursday morning surrounded by his family and caregiver at his beautiful home here in the Villages.
Jim was born on a farm near the small town of Gridley, California. While growing up, his family lived and worked in several California farm communities in Firebaugh, Island Mountain and the Santa Cruz Mountains. After serving in the Air Force, he became an airline mechanic for Pan Am and then United for over 30 years allowing him to travel the world. He married Ingeborg Larsen in 1958 and raised three children here in Silicon Valley. After Inge passed in 2009, Jim spent his days traveling, writing, golfing and cracking jokes. Many of you know Jim though his Ironman golf column in The Villager. He thanks you all for indulging his passion for golf and writing!
In lieu of flowers, the family encourages donations to the Make-A-Wish Foundation, wish.org. Services will be held at St. Francis of Assisi on December 7th at 2:00pm, followed by a reception at the San Jose Fairmont at 3:30pm.
