Lawrence Levien

  Lawrence “Larry” Levien died peacefully in his Puyallup home on May 17, 2020, at the age of 76.

  Larry was born on Feb. 10, 1944, in Bellingham to Carl and Gwen Levien. He graduated from Washington State University in 1966 with a degree in wildlife management and shortly thereafter started his longtime career in the Alaskan seafood industry. Larry retired from Golden Alaska Seafoods in 2010.

  Larry is survived by his five children, David, Ben, Kent, Katie and SaraJane; his six grandchildren, Dilan, Aidan, Demetri, Chase, Jessie and LeeLee; his four brothers, Hank, Rich, John and Carl; his two sisters, Nita and Diana; and extended family of 100-plus cousins, nieces and nephews.

  He was preceded in death by his wife Betty, brother Michael, and his parents.

  Larry will be buried at Woodbine Cemetery in Puyallup at 11 a.m. on May 29. Due to COVID-19 there will not be a reception at that time. Per Larry’s wishes, the family will share when we can all gather to celebrate Larry’s life at a later date.

  The family gratefully declines flowers and donations, but prayers, condolences and memories are gladly accepted at Obituary for Lawrence Levien | Powers Funeral Home.
