Joe was known to his many friends as a free spirit who traveled widely and was always known to lend a helping hand. A lifelong outdoorsman, he and his brother Fred would often fish and camp in the mountains, sometimes skiing deep into the Big Horns and pitching camp in the middle of winter. For several years Joe traveled the country and wind-surfed from California to the New York Island and myriad places in between.
He was preceded in death by his parents, his brother Fred (Suzanne) Larsen of Sheridan and his brother Carl (Nora) Larsen of Thermopolis.
He is survived by his widow and a sister, Virginia Boyer of Torrington.
Cremation has taken place. A memorial get-together somewhere in the mountains of Wyoming will take place at a later time.
