David James Larsen, age 30, of Lacey Washington, formerly of Milaca Minnesota, passed away unexpectedly Wednesday, May 4, 2022, in Lacey Washington while en route to the hospital.

David "DJ" was born September 1, 1991 in Mora, Minnesota and graduated Milaca High School with the class of 2010. Throughout his life David pursued various jobs which helped him thrive in the maintenance field. David had a wandering soul and once he left his hometown of Milaca for the city life of St. Cloud, MN, he moved to Savannah Georgia. After a year in Savannah, and taking in all that Georgia offered him, he was called to Lacey, Washington. While in Lacey, David spent the remainder of his life pursing his main passions which centered around motorcycles, do-it-yourself (DIY) projects, and learning all about the many things that interested him. When not riding his motorcycle along the coast of the Pacific Ocean, or the mountain sides, he was often found building, working on, and tinkering with his motorcycles rain or shine. We can all be thankful David enjoyed sharing his thoughts, hobbies, accomplishments, and goals through the many memes and pictures he sent to those he called family and friends.

David is survived by his parents and step-parents, brother and sisters, and the many other family and friends who loved him for who he was and what he represented. He is proceeded in death by his niece Alanna Christine Manke and his grandparents Irvin Donald Ackerson and Martha Elizabeth Ackerson.
