Stephen Larson Obituary
July 29, 1947 - June 16, 2017 Stephen Larson died peacefully in his home on Friday, June 16, 2017, with his wife Dorothy by his side. Steve was diagnosed with a malignant glioblastoma brain tumor, just before his 69th birthday in July 2016. Born on July 29, 1947 Steve played many roles throughout his life - executive, business owner, chef, adventurer, Vietnam veteran, student and educator. Steve loved being an Accounting Professor at Concordia University. His ability to pass on his knowledge of accounting and finance to others brought great joy and meaning to his life, and much appreciated clarity to his students. In recognition of his research into employee stock option programs (ESOPs), Steve was awarded the prestigious Kelso Fellowship from Rutgers University. Two of his favorite activities were travelling the world with his wife Dorothy, and enjoying the theatre. Steve is survived by his mother Shirley, wife Dorothy, sister Saundra, his two sons Jarrod and Adrian and nephew and grand-nephew Joel and Orrin. A Celebration of the Life of Steve Larson will be held on Saturday, July 8th, at 2pm, at the Newport Beach Civic Center Community Room. Memorial contributions can be made to "UCI Foundation." By notating "In memory of Stephen Larson" and sending "Attn: Caroline Pereira" they will go to Neuro-Oncology Research.
