Sven Larsen
It is with deep sadness that the family of Sven (Great Dane) Larsen, announce his passing on February 1st, 2019. He was a wonderful Husband, Father, Grandfather and Great- Grandfather. Sven was a friend to all and will be greatly missed.
Sven is survived by his wife of 48 years, Esther, his children; Brenner (Amy) and Candace (Rod), grandchildren; Isabella (Justin) and Hunter, his beautiful great- granddaughter Vaida, and sister Greta. He is also survived by many extended family members in Denmark.
Sven was pre-deceased by both of his parents, Carl and Dorothy.
The family would like to thank the Sylvan Home Care team and the Red Deer Hospice for their wonderful, compassionate care that Sven received.
At his request there will be no Funeral Service, but rather a Celebration of his life will be held in the spring. For those who are wishing to make a memorial contribution in Sven’s name in lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Red Deer Hospice Society, 99 Arnot Avenue, Red Deer, Alberta.

Jim and Karen Gough / Margaret Cooper:
Sven's passing brings us much sadness. We will miss his dry humour, jokes and twinkle-in-the eye smiling face, as he sauntered into a room. Without any hesitation, Sven was always willing to help his family and many friends any way he could. Whenever they needed his help, they just had to ask. He was a hard worker for his family and his stories of his travels and life in Sylvan Lake always captured our full attention. We consider Sven and Esther to be friends and family as we all gather to celebrate family birthdays and holidays. Our prayers and condolences go out to Esther, Brenner, Candace, Amy, Isabella and Hunter, who suffered so much along with Sven at the end of his illness. Like everyone who knew him, we will definitely miss the Great Dane.
Ray & Janice Johnston:
Condolences to your family. Hugs & prayers. Sven was always great to visit with will miss his smile.
Ethel Wilde and family :
