Einar "Einey" Albin Larson Jr., beloved husband, father and friend to many, passed away unexpectedly the afternoon of Jan. 28, 2016, at home in the arms of his wife and son. A celebration of life will be held from 2 p.m. - 3 p.m. on Saturday, Feb. 6, 2016, at The Anchorage Funeral Home, 1800 Dare Ave. Anchorage, AK 99515. A viewing will be held 1 hour prior to services from 1 p.m. - 2 p.m. A reception will follow at the Anchorage Funeral Home. Born on May 16, 1951, at Travis Air Force Base, California to Einar Sr. and Lois Larson, Einar was the second of three children. He was raised in International Falls, Minn., and moved to Eagle River, Alaska, in 1967. He graduated from Chugiak High School in 1969, and at the age of 17 enlisted in the U.S. Navy, where he served as an aircraft mechanic. Einar was honorably discharged as an E-4 after four years and returned home to Eagle River. In 1975, Einar met Becky. After a whirlwind two month relationship, they married. Einar and Becky later had three children together, and celebrated 40 wonderful years of marriage in September 2015. Einar was an avid Alaskan outdoorsman, enjoying activities such as camping, hunting, fishing and exploring. In his youth, he also played hockey. Einar loved to work with his hands and built countless homes from the ground up. Einar was diagnosed with Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma in 1997, a result of his tour in Vietnam. A true warrior, he far surpassed the typical survival rate, and was prepared to continue fighting for years to come. Despite his many challenges, Einar never lost his smile and sense of humor. His passing will weigh on the hearts of everybody that knew him for years to come. Einar is survived by his wife, Becky; daughter, Mandy of Anchorage, Alaska; Scott of Tempe, Ariz.; and Shane of Sterling, Alaska; mother, Lois; brother, Michael (Sandy); sister, Sandra (Kim); best friend, Steve Dwyer; and many other treasured family members and friends. He was proceeded in death by his father, Einar Sr. Arrangements made by Peninsula Memorial Chapel & Crematory. Please sign his online guestbook at AlaskanFuneral.com.
