Jim finished his earthly journey on Feb 23 , 2021. He is no longer in pain and has been reunited with his dad, Roger.

James Lewis Larsen was born Jan. 9, 1975 in Clarkston, Washington, to Rosiland  Ann Hodges and Roger Darrel Larsen. He was one of six boys.  Jim lived in Molin, Oregon and graduated from Lost River High School. He was very active in sports.  Jim was a state competitor in football and wrestling  and was recently inducted into the Lost River Hall of Fame.

After graduating high school Jim served a two-year mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in North Carolina. Jim completed his mission and returned home to pursue his education as an electrician. That began his lifelong career.

In 2000, Jim married Jaime Marie Arevalo and they were sealed for time and all eternity in the Columbia River Washington LDS temple on April 12, 2002.  Jim was diagnosed with a liver disease at a young age and underwent two liver transplants during his life.  Against all odds they were blessed with a daughter in October 2005, Ashtyn Faith.  Jim deeply loved his daughter and enjoyed spending time in the outdoors with her four wheeling and camping.  

Jim was a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, where he served faithfully in many different capacities. He spent numerous years as a ward clerk and serving the inmate population at the Eastern Oregon Correctional Facility.

Jim spent his life working as an electrician. He enjoyed being outside, traveling to different job sites and sharing his expertise in the field.  He was known for his strong work ethic.  He was currently employed with Dry Canyon Communication LLC who thought of him as family. Jim loved the outdoors; his favorite time of the year was hunting season.  He had an avid interest in guns, enjoying his time at Shot Show in Las Vegas every year. Jim will be remembered for his stories, his sense of humor,  his willingness to help others, and his perseverance.

Jim is survived by his wife, Jaime Larsen, and daughter, Ashtyn Larsen of Pendleton; mother, Rosiland Larsen of Malin Oregon; brothers, Bret (Amber), Steven (Debbie), Ryan (Sonja), Mark (Rebecca) and Kevin (Julia).

He is preceded in death by his father, Roger Larsen, Grandfathers Ted Hodges and Glen Larsen, and Grandmother Viola Hodges.

A private family service will be held Friday, February  26, 2021, at 10:00 a.m. at the Pendleton Pioneer Chapel, 131SE Byers Ave. Burial to follow at Skyview Memorial Park in Pendleton, Oregon.

Jamie and Ashtyn - Our thoughts and prayers are with you two in these trying times. I have the utmost respect for Jim and will miss seeing and talking with him when our paths crossed. I'm reminded of the passage from Revelations 21:4,27. It speaks of heaven...

He will wipe away every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away. Nothing impure will ever enter it....

Keep the faith - we will see Jim again on the other side.

I'm so sorry to hear about Jim's passing! You may not who I am, but I worked with him until his last days. He talked about his wife and daughter and how his daughter wanted his truck.

We were planning a hunting trip in Wyoming this October and he was so excited.

Jim was a great guy and Calbee will greatly miss him!
