Chris "Boots" Larsen

November 24, 1948 — May 1, 2024

Chris Larsen, well known as Boots passed away peacefully at his home on May 1, 2024, he was surrounded by his loving family. 

Born on November 24, 1948, to Russell and Ruby Jensen Larsen in Mt. Pleasant, UT. Chris married Linda Bohne Larsen in 1975, they have 3 children Kimberly, Carl, Nicole and four grandchildren, Kaitlin Swensen, Matthew Swensen, Paisley Nielsen and Whitley Nielsen.

Chris was a lifetime resident of Mt. Pleasant and graduated from North Sanpete High School. He started working for Mt. Pleasant City in the early 1970’s. His first job was working for the Power Department dismantling the old substation. Chris also worked part time for the Police Department; in 1973 he was part of a group that started the North Sanpete Ambulance Association. Chris was also a volunteer for the Fire Department and had the opportunity to be the Fire Chief for several years.

Chris entered the Police Academy in 1981 and became a certified Police Officer, he returned to the city as a full-time officer. Working with the youth was one of the highlights of his job. He spent many hours speaking in local schools about drug abuse, child abuse and child safety, such as McGruff, School Bus safety, 911, and the Safety Kids where he used puppets to keep the kid’s attention. Chris served the citizens of Mt. Pleasant City until 1996, he then had the privilege to serve the citizens of Fairview for seven years. He also enjoyed his time on the Sanpete County Search and Rescue.

Even though Chris was not working for Mt. Pleasant City he still wanted to serve the citizens, so he ran for City Council and was elected. He planned to serve for one term but stayed for three terms, twelve years in all. During those years he was able to work on a lot of different projects that helped improve the city. With the help of many volunteers and many donations they built the Rodeo Grounds which has made our July 4th celebration bigger and better by bringing in a first-class rodeo. The last big project that Chris worked on was a bridge replacement with Alden Johansen, who was the contractor. 

Chris had the privilege of being the Grand Marshall for Mt. Pleasant City’s 4th of July Celebration of 2023. He was very honored to be chosen to represent the city.

Chris is survived by his wife Linda (Bohne) Larsen, their three children, Kimberly Swensen (Magna, UT,) Carl Larsen (Mt. Pleasant, UT), Nicole (Cory) Nielsen (Riverton, UT) and their four grandchildren.
