Leif Aleutian Larsen departed this Earth on Oct. 13, 2019, due to a premature birth at 26 weeks in Seattle, Washington. Leif left behind his loving parents, Brian and Jen Larsen, along with his 19-month-old sister, Melody Joy.

He is also survived by paternal grandparents, Keith and Jeanie Larsen, of Sea Isle City, New Jersey, and maternal grandmother Nancy Huserek of Hammonton, N.J., and the late John Huserek.

Leif is also survived by Cristine and John Chickadel and their three sons of Ventnor, N.J.; Melissa Larsen, of Lake Worth, Florida; Andrew and Danielle Larsen and their three children Amelia, Wolfe and Willow, of Ocean View, N.J.; Maureen Larsen, of Sea Isle City, N.J.; Darren and Greta Bates and their five children Jed, Jeshua, Edom, Josiah and Beth, of San Antonio, Texas; and John and Jen Bates, of Vineland, N.J. Leif is also survived by many aunts, uncles, cousins and friends spanning from the East to West coasts.

Our precious baby boy Leif’s short time with us delivered an unconditional love to his family that will never be forgotten. His brief visit on Earth was filled with energy and fight to live, giving his all in such a short amount of time. His beautiful soul will never be forgotten and will always be a part of his family.

A visitation and memorial service for Leif was held Monday, Nov. 11, at the United Methodist Church in Sea Isle City, N.J. In lieu of flowers, the family requests contributions be made to the Leif Aleutian Larsen Family Fund at the First Bank of Sea Isle City, 4301 Landis Ave., Sea Isle City, N.J. 08243.
