James Brett Larsen (9.27.76 – 3.3.18) JUST GONNA SEND IT!
James, Jamie, Jimmy, J-Lar, Mamie Larsen made his last wildly inappropriate, probably sarcastic, but most definitely hilarious comment on March 3, 2018. James lived far from an average life, he learned what he wanted to learn, traveled where he wanted to travel, fixed what he wanted to fix and loved who he wanted to love. James will be remembered by all who knew him for his kindness, generosity and sense of humor – he would do anything for a laugh and loved making others smile. He never took himself too seriously, laughing at what others would find embarrassing or inappropriate at every chance he got.
James is survived by his parents Tom and Diane Larsen of Bonney Lake, WA as well as his siblings Kimber Lee Miller (Jake), Tommy Sulkosky (Lynn), Jennifer Larsen and Lori Murphy (Slade), his nephews Tyler and Orrin Brateng, Landon and Gavin Murphy and niece Riley King-Talik. And his adopted family, the Gardens, Wayne, Becky, John (Amber) and Tom, and nephews Jacek and Jagar.
James was a one-man rendition of the Village People (cop, construction worker, pilot, cowboy, playboy). All close to him, knew James was creative, highly capable and had an endless amount of energy – he never slept. He ran his company, Aggregate Construction by day, patrolled the streets of Bonney Lake by night and somehow fit in spending time with his family and friends. Jamie viewed careers as being for people who are unimaginative and recently received his pilot’s license, he had dreams of being a commercial pilot one day. He truly lived a full life.
We all know ladies love a man in a uniform and James got to know many during his life, many of them still remained friends. He was known among many baristas as he loved coffee. James wasn’t married, he tried it once and it just didn’t work out, but he remained very close with his ex-wife Cheryl and her family. It turns out that Mother Nature was the only lady who could tame him.
James loved the movie Super Troopers and would play practical jokes inspired by the movie on his fellow policemen as well as the unsuspecting public – thanks James. He absolutely loved Garth Brooks but wasn’t just country, he loved all types of music and would bust out in song all the time and we’d join in. James also loved watching YouTube clips over and over and introduced Larry the Enticer and unfortunately, What Does a Fox Say to his family and friends.
One last special shout to all of his close buddies (and there are a lot of them!) who he loved spending time with - around a campfire, in a shop working on jeeps, snowboarding, sledding, working on concrete jobs and having a few pints. And all his brothers at the BLPD, You all have been so good to us during this time and we want you to know you really were family to James and you’re family to us. May his memories live on in your heart and always bring you smiles and laughter!
