Thomas Ray Larsen, age 68, died suddenly at home in Woodland on February 21, 2011.

Mr. Larsen was born in Kanab, Utah, on February 26, 1942, the son of the late Senator Lewis H. Larsen and Mrs. Dorothy Larsen.

He was preceded in death by his beloved son Steven Larsen.

He is survived by his loving wife, Sandra; sons Thomas (Lindsay) of Draper, Utah, and Michael (Joanna) of Bend, Ore.; elder sister Bette Stanton of Moab, Utah; twin sister W. Lee Papale of Cripple Creek, Colo.; younger sister Sharon Parker of Twin Bridges, Mont.; eleven grandchildren; numerous nieces and nephews; and his dog Daisy.

Tom was a retired police officer of the UC Davis Police Department and a longtime Davis resident.

Tom was very proud of his sons and their accomplishments. He had a passion for art and basketball. He was grateful to have had the opportunity to travel and explore so much of the world, view the art, photograph his surroundings, and experience the many diverse cultures.

Tom especially enjoyed producing the Larsen & Larsen photographic cards of Davis and Winters, sold in many local businesses over the years, and was thankful for the warm and positive responses received about the cards.

Tom knew he was much loved and held a firm belief that we will never have to say goodbye in heaven.

As per his wishes no services will be held.

    I met Tom in the late 1970's when we both worked at the UC Police Department, he an office, I a secretary. I remember Tom fondly and so sorry for your and our loss. He was always so kind and gentle. For the many years I lived in Davis, I very much enjoyed the beautiful black and white photos that appeared on cards in local Davis stores. My daughters, Kari and Dawn Wilson attended school with Steven. It is with sadness I learned of Tom's passing. He made this world a better place and I am so glad we met. My sincere sympathy to the Larsen Family. Lynda Wilson

    I just saw this and I am very sorry to learn Tom passed away. I knew Tom for many years. My daughter, Kelly went to school with his son, Steven. I also knew him from UC Davis. My work brought me in contact with his wife, Sandy. I loved the Larsen & Larsen cards and bought several of them just to keep. He was a wonderful photographer. I want to extend my sympathies to his wife Sandy and the Larsen family. Carol Schnitter
