Al was such a great friend. He was our best man when we married 41 years ago. We will miss him, but are thankful for the memories of all the fun we had together....road trips, playing cards on Saturday nights, pizza from Klees, family gatherings, dinners out, Super Bowl parties.

God Bless Mr. Larsen. He worked the little store in the Larsen Shell on 37 for years. At the time, it was the only place to buy gas in that area. I'm from Seaside and I passed it and stopped in daily. I was so mad when it sold! What a nice man. Rest in Peace.

Sending love to the entire Larsen family. We've lost our patriarch, a man whose twinkling eyes and smiling face I will always remember. Because of dad, Roger Warren, whisking us away to far places, my memories of Uncle Al are widely spaced in time...usually 3-4 years. Whenever we returned 'home' to Seaside (Nana's house), we always made our first stop the gas station by the bridge, which in my memory will always be Gulf. I remember spending the night with Claire at the Pelican Island house, with the pool!! so jealous lol. Nana & Pop raised a good crew of kids: John, Al, Eric, Bruce, Eleanor, Nancy (mom), and June. All with those smiling eyes and kind souls, but serious stoic Nordic personalities. Alfred Olaf Larsen was named for two of his father Johan/John's brothers, back in West Farsund, Norway. I will miss him.
