Curtis "J" Larson

November 28, 1951 — February 6, 2024

Curtis “J” Larson, a proud (and stubborn) Swede and Navy Veteran, passed Tuesday, February 6,


In his last few days, Curtis reminisced about his seven years in the Navy as a Radar Technician

on Naval ships. Enlisting in the Navy was a good fit for that young enlistee who grew up

tinkering with electronics alongside his father, Lowell Larson, until Curtis became an electronic

guru himself. Curtis always had a curious, inventor mindset and loved experimenting. There are

ample stories that begin with, “Remember when Curtis blew up __?”


Curtis was the oldest of four children, survived by his siblings (Carol Lee, Kris, and Robin). They

grew up in Farmington, Utah. Curtis had a soft spot in his heart for his gentle mother, Sherel



While in the Navy, Curtis met his first wife and they had four children. His oldest son (Joseph)

passed soon after birth, and between Curtis’ remaining children (Marsha, Jonathan, and

Teresa), Curtis had six grandchildren and one great-grandchild.


After the Navy, Curtis worked as a civil servant for Hill Air Force Base until he retired in 2021.

While at Hill AFB, Curtis met his second wife and they had five children (Nathan, Ryan, Catrina,

Erika, and Emma), Curtis became a grandfather to seven more grandchildren.


Curtis’ retirement years permitted him time to research genealogy, tinker more in his “shop”

(commonly known as an airplane hangar), spend time with his grandchildren, tweak his

inventions, and conjure up a plan to distribute over 900 copies of the U.S. Constitution to the

residents of Plain City, Utah.


Born on November 28, 1951, in Salt Lake City, Utah, Curtis left us after 72 full years. He took

with him a brilliant mind and cherished memories from a unique life. He was loved and will be

deeply missed.


Curtis’ viewing is Friday, February 16, 2024, 9:00 AM to 10:30 AM, with the service at 11:00 AM,

at: Aaron’s Mortuary 496 24th Street, Ogden, Utah, 84401.
