Craig L. Larsen
1964 ~ 2012

The world lost a great man March 4, 2012 when Craig Lee Larsen, age 47, passed away at home in the arms of his wife and children. He fought Adrenal Cancer with courage, dignity and his trademark sense of humor. Craig was born into a loving family on June 16, 1964 in Ogden Utah, the third of four children born to Norman Lee and June Squire Larsen. His childhood was filled with trips to G’Ma’s house, playing with cousins, camping, hunting, motorcycles, and basketball. He graduated from Woods Cross High School, served in the Ohio Cleveland Mission, and taught at the MTC, where he met his love, Dianne L. Prince. They were married for time and all eternity in the Los Angeles Temple on December 17, 1988, and are the parents of Shelby, Thomas, and Connor. With a degree in Statistics from BYU, he worked as VP of Corporate Quality for Merit Medical Systems, Inc. and loved the people with whom he worked. He was successful because he cared about people and always saw the big picture. He was a humble leader at work, church, home, in the community, and as a coach. He loved those whom he served. He loved children and enjoyed hearing their voices while playing outside.

Craig won Dianne’s heart with his quick wit, his work ethic, his sparkling smile, his testimony of and love for his Savior Jesus Christ, his passion for outdoor activities and sports, and his love for family. He was passionate about providing for his family and saw that they always had what they needed. He followed the Prophet. He served the Lord faithfully in every capacity he was called, from leadership to teaching primary. He loved people, Utah, motorcycles and four-wheelers, camping, hunting, Trek, Kauai, basketball, Christmas, BYU, & nice things.

Craig is survived by his parents, wife, three children, and siblings (Linda Holgreen Larsen, Karen & Todd Nilsen, Reid & Amy Larsen), in-laws Dale & Marie Prince, Michael Prince, aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces & nephews.
