He was born Dec. 13, 1940, in Logan, Utah, to Lynn Alma and Dorothy Bench Larson. Lynn grew up in Preston, Idaho, and graduated from Preston High School.

He met his love and best friend, Betsey Jane Fredrickson, and they were married for time and all eternity Nov. 19, 1965, in the Logan LDS Temple. In 1971, they moved to Arimo, where they raised their three daughters and watched their children and grandchildren grow.
Lynn enjoyed fishing, camping, John Wayne movies, and more than anything he loved to spend time with his family and grandchildren.
