Doug Larsen Wiki – Doug Larsen Biography
North Dakota state senator Doug Larsen, his wife and two children died in a plane crash in Utah. Doug Larsen’s death was confirmed Monday in an email that Republican Senate Majority Leader David Hogue sent to his fellow senators and that was obtained by the Associated Press. The plane crashed Sunday night shortly after taking off from Canyonlands Airfield, about 15 miles north of Moab, according to a statement from the Grand County Sheriff’s Department posted on Facebook. The sheriff’s office said all four people aboard the plane died. “Senator Doug Larsen, his wife Amy, and his two young children died last night in a plane crash in Utah,” Hogue wrote in his email. “They were visiting family in Scottsdale and returning home. They stopped to refuel in Utah.”

Cause of Death
I’m not sure where grieving for such a tragedy begins, but I believe it begins with prayers for the grandparents, Senator Larsen’s surviving stepson, and Doug and Amy’s extended family,” Hogue wrote. “Keep your family close today.” The crash of the single-engine Piper plane was under investigation, the National Transportation Safety Board said in a post on X, the social media website formerly called Twitter. A phone message left with sheriff’s officials seeking additional information was not immediately returned Monday. Larsen was a Republican first elected to the North Dakota Senate in 2020. His district includes Mandan, Bismarck’s neighboring city to the west, across the Missouri River. Larsen chaired a Senate panel dealing with business and industrial legislation. He was also a lieutenant colonel in the North Dakota National Guard. He and his wife, Amy, were business owners. Moab is a tourism-focused community of approximately 5,300 people near Arches and Canyonlands national parks.
