Bryant Wayne Larsen, age 45, entered into eternal rest on November 25, 2019 in Eagan, Minnesota. Bryant was born on August 18th, 1974 in Rice Lake, Wisconsin, to Barry G. and Carolyn Marie (Wait) Larsen. He attended school in Rice Lake, Wisconsin and received an Associate Degree in Computer Information Systems from Wisconsin Indianhead Technical College in Rice Lake.

He enjoyed working in the technology industry and helping others achieve their goals. Bryant cherished intimate gatherings with close friends/family, and supporting his wife and daughters in every aspect of their lives. He was actively involved in the karate community, and was extremely proud of his girls’ accomplishments. Bryant loved being outdoors, hunting with his family at their cabin, and riding his motorcycle on the backcountry roads of Wisconsin.

Bryant will remain in the hearts of his wife, Neda Larsen; three daughters, Rayna (14) Lila (8) and Ella (7); mother, Carolyn Larsen; siblings, Dawn (Richard) Phillipsen, Garrett Larsen, and Dessi Larsen; nieces, Kaylee Hayes and Brynn Hayes; nephews, Thomas Phillipsen, Ryan Phillipsen and Brennan Larsen; best friend, Don (Shelly) Demers; many aunts, uncles, and the entire karate community.
