Victor “Vic” Glenn Larson, 79, West Lafayette, passed away unexpectedly at his home after spending Christmas with his family on Saturday, Dec. 25, 2021 at 8:19 p.m.
Mr. Larson was born in Lafayette, Ind. on Feb. 17, 1942, the son of the late Victor Albert “Swede” and Winifred Frances (Williams) Larson.
He was raised around Independence in Warren County and graduated from Pine Village High School in 1960 where he played baseball and basketball and met his future wife. He then graduated from Purdue University with a BS degree in Management in 1964. He went on to work as an Operations Manager for CTS Microelectronics in West Lafayette for 40 years, retiring in 2004.
Mr. Larson had attended West Lafayette Christian Church and Bethel Community Church. He enjoyed the time he spent with his family and watching his children and grandchildren play sports. He loved tending his immense vegetable garden with a footprint larger than his house. Avid Boilermakers, he and his wife held season tickets to the Purdue football and women’s basketball teams. He loved to travel including numerous hikes through the Grand Canyon, family trips to Purdue bowl games, and cruises that took him and his extended family to many far-off destinations. He was a tinkerer, working with Allis-Chalmers and John Deere tractors at his home. However, his greatest joy was time with his loved ones. On June 23, 1962, he married Janice E. Lemming in Pine Village Christian Church.

Larson, Indianapolis; Sara Crane and significant other Jeff Stumph, West Lafayette, Amanda (Jeffrey) Rehm, Commerce Township, Mich. and Julie (Jason) Tindall, Indianapolis; brother, Jack L.
