August 6, 1952 - February 27, 2016
On February 27, 2016 our Valiant Warrior was called home to the loving arms of our Heavenly Father. Mike was born August 6, 1952 to Gene and Jean Larsen in Salt Lake City, Utah. He graduated from Kearns High School in 1970 and earned his Associates Degree from Utah Technical College. He honorably served in the Georgia-South Carolina mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. He married his eternal sweetheart, Robyn Pearson, in the Salt Lake Temple on July 8, 1977 and together they raised 7 children. He retired from United Parcel Service after 37 years of dedicated service. For the last year he found great joy in working with many friends at CreditRepair.com. Our gentle giant loved fishing, playing with his dog Scruffy and spending time with his beloved grandchildren. He loved to serve others and enjoyed his many callings in the LDS Church. He had a huge heart and could make anyone laugh with his jokes and silly stories. He considered his greatest joys and accomplishments in life to be his family. He is survived by his best friend and wife, Robyn, sons and daughters (Tina, Amy and Randall Rockwood, Jennie Beth and Eric Peterson, Andy, Timothy, Brad, Natalie and Devon Sacks), his beautiful grandkids (Bella, Dash, Scout, Kennadi, Jayde, Ryker, Kaiwon, Skyrie, Taibor, Cayler), siblings (Charlene and Ron Bigelow, Jim and Roger Larsen, Richard Larsen) and many nieces, nephews, family and friends. He is now reunited with his parents, father-in-law Paul Pearson, and brother Steven Larsen. The family expresses their many heartfelt thanks to the amazing medical teams at IMC, who showed great care and compassion during his final journey on Earth. We will always remember your smile, tickle fests, pillow fights and bear hugs. We love and miss you, our sweet Dad and Papa! Funeral services will be on Friday, March 4, 2016 at 11:00 a.m. at the Welby 4th Ward Chapel 9376 S. 4000 W. with a viewing prior from 9:45 to 10:45 a.m. Friends may visit with the family on Thursday evening from 6-8 p.m. at the church.
