In loving memory of Robert Codington Larson who passed away of natural causes at his home in Fullerton, CA on December 29th, 2015.
Bob was born in Los Angeles, CA on June 20, 1925 to Ruth and Arnold Larson. He graduated from Dorsey High School in 1943, and later attended UCLA.
Bob met his first wife Lola at UCLA, and together they raised three sons, Gary, Grant and Rob. Later in life Bob married Osmary Noonan Larson.
Bob was an inspirational, courageous, and enterprising gentleman. His hardworking, entrepreneurial nature led him to start and successfully manage his own framing, construction and real estate businesses located in Woodland Hills, California.
He was a wonderful father, husband and friend whose greatest joy was connecting with loved ones and sharing life experiences - whether it be storytelling around the dinner table or competing together on the golf course. Bob also gave generously to his community with his time and resources, and supported numerous organizations helping others in need.
Bob was an incredible man from the inside out. Bob is survived by his second wife, Osmary Noonan Larson; his brother, Dave Larson; his 2 sons, Rob (Sarah) and Grant (Judy); his 5 step-children, Elmer (Mayumi), Lisa (Dave), Sheila (Tom), Laura (Kurt) and Mark (Jennifer); 14 grandchildren and 5 great grandchildren.
He was preceded in death by his son, Gary (18) and his first wife, Lola. A celebration of life will be held on Sunday, January 31st at 11am at the Summit House Restaurant, Fullerton, CA.
In lieu of flowers, we ask that donations be sent in Bob's name to the following organizations he believed help make the world a better place: Salvation Army, Wounded Warrior Project, Children's Fund International, Ability First, St. Jude Children's Hospital, Tara's Chance Therapeutic Riding.
