Stewart Larsen

September 12, 1938 — March 24, 2024

Logan, Utah

Stewart Beck Larsen, a beloved husband, father, grandfather, and great grandfather passed away peacefully on March 24, 2024 at the age of 85. He was born on September 12, 1938 in Salt Lake City, Utah. The story goes that he was born pre-mature and started out his life sleeping in a shoe box. However, that didn’t last long. Stewart's life was a testament to kindness, integrity, and unwavering dedication to his family and his testimony of the Savior.


Stewart is a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and served faithfully throughout his life. He had amazing love for the Savior that penetrated his every thought and action. His two favorite callings were stake mission leader and home teacher. All of his sons remember visiting the Cahoon family every month without fail. He loved teaching the restored gospel to his friends.


After serving in the US Army, he served a two-year mission to the East Central states. Though he suffered from memory loss one could always ask about his mission and he would always tell you a story about someone he taught or miracle that happened. He graduated with a mechanical engineering degree from the University of Utah and earned an MBA from the University of Washington. He married Miss Utah, Annette Bates, on June 17, 1965 in the Salt Lake City LDS Temple. He grew up in Salt Lake City, where his love for the outdoors flourished.


His love for the outdoors, including hunting, scouting and the Audubon Society, was evident throughout his life. His participation in All-Church softball was legendary, earning him admiration and respect from his peers… and children.

Dad’s #1 was always his family. He was a devoted husband to his beloved wife of nearly 59 years, Annette, and a “totally awesome” father to his seven children, Keith (Angi), Camille, Crystal (Tony), Mark (Melissa), Scott (Tangi), Craig (Vicki), and Carolyn (Jason). Stewart's grandchildren held a special place in his heart, and he cherished every moment spent with them, never missing a sporting event to cheer them on. He especially loved helping his sons and grandsons achieve the rank of Eagle Scout and presenting them with their special leather neckerchiefs.


After graduating from the University of Utah, Stewart and Annette embarked on a journey together, moving to Bellevue, Washington, where Stewart pursued his Master's degree while welcoming their first two children, Keith and Camille. Their adventures continued as they moved to Washington, D.C., where Stewart worked for Boeing and welcomed Crystal and Mark into their family. In 1975, they relocated to Redmond, Washington, where Scott and Craig joined their siblings. Finally in 1980, they established deep roots in Logan, Utah and have been wearing Aggie blue ever since. It was there that Carolyn, the youngest of their children, was born, completing their beautiful family.


Stewart's professional career was marked by dedication and excellence. He worked for both Boeing and Thiokol for many years, traveling the world and earning the respect of military generals and dignitaries. Stewart's integrity and professionalism were unmatched, leaving a lasting impact on all who had the privilege of working with him.


Beyond his professional achievements, Stewart will be remembered for his calm temperament. As children, they never understood the threat "I’m going to call your father" because they would much rather have their father called than their mother.

Stewart's passing leaves a profound void in the lives of his family and friends, but his legacy of love, kindness, perseverance, and dedication to the Savior and His gospel will continue to inspire all who were fortunate enough to have known him. He will be deeply missed and fondly remembered.


Fun fact: Stewart’s brother married his wife’s sister. Their children are not just cousins but double cousins! This resulted in great vacations and lasting memories over the years. Stewart is survived by his wife Annette, his brother Lynn, his 7 children, 32 grandchildren and 3 great grandchildren.


A special thank you to the angels at Legacy House.
