Boyd Wilkinson Larsen, 92, passed away on June 22, 2019 surrounded by his family. Boyd was born on March 6, 1927 to Ambrious Titensor and Jessie Wilkinson Larsen. He grew up in Cove, Utah and lived there his entire life. After graduating from North Cache High School, he served briefly in the U.S. Navy but was honorably discharged when he was called home to help run the family farm.
Boyd was a farmer and rancher by trade and worked part-time as a school bus driver for the Cache County School District until his retirement at the age of 80. Boyd married Carol Carlson Miller on September 27, 1974 and they were later sealed in the Logan Temple. She passed away on February 20, 2017.
In his early years, he enjoyed fishing trips to the Greys River in the Afton, Wyoming area. And, deer hunting in High Creek beneath the cliffs of Cherry Peak. He always said, “that was where the big bucks were”. Boyd and Carol enjoyed taking last minute trips on their motorcycle, and he continued riding his motorcycle well in to his 80s.
Boyd is preceded in death by his wife, parents, sister, Barbara Hendricks, and brother, Sherwin Larsen.
He is survived by his sister, Shirley Robinson, step-children; James Miller, John Miller, David Miller, Tom Miller, and many nieces and nephews.
