Arlen Larsen passed at home on Thursday morning, December 17, just 12 days past his 93rd birthday. He was ill for quite some time from dementia, and other internal maladies.
Arlen is survived by Mary, his wife of 65 years; two sons, Brett and Jed Larsen; daughter, Nancyann; and six grandchildren. His oldest son, Scot, past several years ago.
Arlen was born and raised in Iowa and came to Oregon as a young man. He was living in Eastern Oregon when he met Mary and soon after they moved to the Portland area.
He worked for ESCO Corp. until he retired. He has lived in Scappoose for the last 46 years.
He was one of 11 children, all but two preceded him in death.
Arlen was a hard-working man all his life. He had many friends and was friend to many. We will all miss him.
There will be no services.
