Stig Ove Larsson died at his home on January 16, 2023.
Stig was born on the 8th of September in 1956 to Inga Greta Larsson, in Dala-Floda, Sweden. In 1964, his mother came to America. Stig remained in Sweden for many years with his grandmother and grandfather. At an early age, he learned to ski, skate, and play sports. In 1969 his grandmother suddenly died. He then moved to Fernwood, Idaho, where he lived with his beloved mother Inga, her husband Roger St. George, and their daughter, Mia.
Stig adapted to America quickly. After attending school in Emida, he graduated from St. Maries High School with the Class of 1975. Stig was a fun, humorous, smart, kind, and charming classmate. He was VERY popular and made many friends, wherever he went.
After graduation, Stig moved to Wyoming and Spokane for a time, before settling in the Seattle area. He began his 35-year career at Boeing in 1979, as an installation electrician. Stig worked his way up to Team Lead on the 737, 747, and 777 production lines, and made numerous international trips to repair jets. He was revered as a skilled and conscientious employee.
Stig enjoyed driving nice cars. He was also a legacy Seattle Seahawks season ticket holder. He rarely missed a game, even up to the time of his death. Having the heart and soul of a musician, Stig attended hundreds of concerts, both large and small. He especially loved The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, Pink Floyd, Led Zeppelin, and numerous other bands. He was also a boating enthusiast. His annual vacations to North Idaho were spent with family and friends, skiing and spending days on the St. Joe River and Lake Coeur d’Alene. Golfing was a favorite pastime, as well.
An active and sharp-witted man with a warm, generous heart and a keen sense of humor, Stig lived life on his own terms. He worked hard, and he played hard. Nobody could ever say he was under-motivated. He greatly loved life and cherished his many, many friends, and his family.
He made numerous return trips to Sweden to visit friends and family and celebrate his heritage. Stig proudly wore and displayed the blue and yellow colors that represent his native country. He also loved America for giving him the many opportunities he had in life.
Mr. Larsson is survived by his sister, Mia, brother-in-law Tim, stepfather, niece and nephew, and numerous cousins, aunts, and uncles both in America and Sweden. He is preceded in death by his mother, Inga. A celebration of his life will be held at Cherry Bend Boat Park north of St. Maries on Saturday, September 9.
