Glen Larson 1949-201 3 “Glen always amazed me with how caring he was. His heart was always in the right place to help others. He worked hard to get where he was, and he didn’t mind sharing what he had with others. Glen helped so many people that we will never know about because he was never one to talk about it.” -Linda Helsten, Glen’s Sister G len Sheldon Larson, 63, formerly of Ephraim, passed away at his home in Mexico on July 9, 2013. Glen was born September 3, 1949, in Ephraim, Utah, to Sheldon R. and Gladys P. Larson. Glen served an LDS mission to Finland. He returned to Ephraim and attended Snow College where he received his associate’s degree. While at Snow, he served as student body president and was named Man of the Year in 1969. He went on to attend BYU and the University of Utah, where he graduated with a degree in physical therapy. Glen also proudly served his country as a member of the Army National Guard for six years. Glen was very successful during his lifetime. He opened a physical therapy clinic in San Diego for a short time. He then became an owner/administrator of Country Hills Residential Care and Country Hills Intermediate Care Center in Lemon Grove, California. The latter-named facility was later relocated to El Cajon as Country Hills Health Care Center. Glen loved people. He was very social and enjoyed entertaining and having fun with family and friends. Glen was also a generous and caring person. Throughout his life, he was an animal lover, opening his home to many stray animals, including a sea lion named Monico that was found stranded on a nearby beach. He was president of the Glen Sheldon Larson Legacy Foundation (Give Some Life). Glen was also a generous supporter of Snow College. For many years, he hosted the student body officers for retreats at his home in Mexico. He also established an endowment fund to assist student body officers with scholarships. Glen was named a Snow College Distinguished Alumnus in recognition of his success and kindness to the college. He is preceded in death by his parents, five of his six siblings, four nephews, and one niece. Glen will be greatly missed by all who knew and associated with him. Snow College pays special tribute to our long-time friend and alum, Glen Larson. Glen’s generosity will now continue beyond his lifetime through a generous provision in his estate plan. His thoughtful remembrance will place Glen among the most substantial donors in the history of the College. Snow College is fortunate indeed to have a caring friend such as Glen. 20 1 3 | S N O W CO L L EG E M AG A ZI N E
