Obituary


Dean Elwin Larsen


Dean E. Larsen went home to be with God on June 2, 2011 in Snohomish, WA. He was born in Rice Lake, Wisconsin on October 19, 1946 to Sanford and Ella (Karlgaard) Larsen.
He is survived by his beloved wife of 44 years, Edith; sons, Jim, Jason and Jeremy; and the light of his life, his grandson, Tristin Larsen. He also leaves his sister, Shirley Johnson; brother, Terry (Pat) Larsen; beloved sister-in-law, Shirley Larsen; and numerous nieces and nephews.
He was preceded in death by his granddaughter, Elizabeth; his parents, Sanford and Ella; and his brothers, Harley Donald and Dale Sanford Larsen.
Dean graduated from Cascade High School in 1965 and attended Bible College. He attended the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints - Machias Ward and was blessed with a wonderfully supportive church family.
Dean proudly spent his career at The Everett Herald (and Western Sun) starting in the mailroom in August of 1965. He held a number of positions in the circulation department at the newspaper including night clerk, district manager, zone manager, assistant circulation manager and home delivery manager before retiring in February, 1992. He considered his co-workers his second family and appreciated their love and support over the years.
Beyond his deep love of family, Dean also loved Harley Davidson motorcycles and spending time in his yard in rural Snohomish. He collected single-action Colt pistols and Case knives.
Graveside services will be held on June 13 at 2 p.m. at Evergreen Cemetery, 4504 Broadway in Everett. Instead of flowers, the family is hoping that people will bring red and gold balloons to release at the conclusion of the service.
