George was born January 16, 1934, the second born son of Titus and Velva (Lemons) Larson, in Niles, Illinois. At the age of seven George's family moved out west to Tillamook, Oregon. George grew up in Oregon and worked with his family, first on a dairy farm and then on a timber farm, where they sold lumber, raised walnuts, and had a gravel pit.

George pursued a career in the freight transportation industry as a truck driver, where he was a true professional. George moved his family from Oregon to California, Arizona, Missouri, Mississippi, Nevada, and Idaho, due to his vocation.

He was preceded in death by his son, Winford Lee Larson. He is survived by his loving and forever devoted wife, Olive Irene Larson, of Eagle, ID, two sons, Michael (Sandy) of Lenexa, KS, David Eugene of Mesa, AZ, and one daughter, Tammy (Butch) McDaniel, of New Plymouth, ID, 8 grandchildren, 18 great-grandchildren, many cousins, nieces and nephews, and a host of loyal friends.

He will be missed by all and forever in our hearts.
