Gene Paul Larsen, 66, formerly of Lake View, Iowa, passed away peacefully in his sleep Sunday, Nov. 21, 2021, at his home in Branson, Missouri.

Gene was born on March 15, 1955, in Atlantic, Iowa, to Raymond and Doris Larsen. He was a graduate of Lake View-Auburn Community High School in 1974.

At an early age, Gene worked at a variety of jobs, but ultimately chose to pursue a lifelong career of carpentry and construction. He owned and operated Larsen Construction for several years until 2011 when he moved to Missouri and continued in that line of work.

In 1974, Gene married Sharon (McCuen) Eischeid. They were blessed with three sons and eight grandchildren.

Gene was married in 2004 to Beth (Blair) Larsen. At that time, Gene gained three more sons, one daughter, and one grandson.

Gene enjoyed hunting and NASCAR. He also loved to travel to Iowa, to see his family.

Gene is survived by his wife: Beth; sons: Ryan (Nicole), Adam (Jenny) and Kurt (Jana); stepchildren: Ryan, Blair (Paul), Kyle and Cody; grandchildren: Koltin, Kristin, Katelin, Kaden, Evan, Sawyer, Hannah, Courtney and Brennon; his mother: Doris; and sisters: Linda (Rick) Howell, Judy (Jay) Chandler, Beck (Mike) Jingst and Mert (Jim) McNally.
