Malad City, ID

Lawrence "Larry" Eugene Mattson, 72, passed away peacefully on April 25, 2023, in Logan, Utah.

Larry was born in Chico, California on November 2, 1950, to Chester and Evelyn Mattson.  He was the second of four siblings in his family.  From a young age, Larry worked with his family in the rice fields in Richvale, California.  He loved farming with his dad and learned the value of hard work.  He graduated from Biggs High School in Biggs, California, in 1969.  After high school, he enlisted in the U.S. Army. While stationed in Okinawa, Japan, Larry served as a heavy machine mechanic.  After his service to his country, Larry returned home to the rice fields and successfully ran Baja Farms with his father.  In 2017, after his father passed, Larry retired as a rice farmer and moved to Idaho.

Larry was an avid hunter and fisherman.  The highlight of his hunting career was in 2015 when he went to New Zealand with his friend, Rick Peterson, and had the hunt of his life. He looked forward to many trips to Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, where he enjoyed deep-sea fishing in the Pacific Ocean.  Larry loved golfing and was always wanted in golf tournaments.  

Larry was preceded in death by his parents, and a close cousin, Butch Mattson.

He is survived by his wife, Elizabeth, three siblings, Roger, Pam, and Bruce, and a number of nieces and nephews.  Even though he did not have any children, he loved all of his nieces and nephews as if they were his own.

In lieu of flowers, the family asks to donate to the California Deer Association or the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation under his name.  Larry was a proud, lifetime member of both of these organizations.

Larry was cremated and the family will have a Memorial Service at a future date.  Details to come.
