Larry graduated from Lake Worth (Fla.) High School, where he was on the football, basketball, and track teams and was president of the student body. At Princeton he majored in religion, belonged to Cannon Club, and served as a Chapel deacon.
Following graduation, he served in the Army Reserve, rising to staff sergeant and qualifying as a sharpshooter. After earning an MBA in finance from Stanford, he joined the finance division of Stanford’s Graduate School of Business as a financial analyst, beginning a 35-year career with the university. When he retired as managing director of real-estate investments for the university, friends and associates donated nearly $1 million to fund the Joan and Larry Owen Fellowship at the Stanford School of Engineering.
After retiring from Stanford, Larry continued his career in real-estate investment, most recently as manager of Owen Capital Group in Portola Valley, Calif.
Larry’s wife, Joan, died in 2013. His survivors include sisters Jean Whitney and Pam Sanders; brother Bruce Owen; and several nieces and nephews, to all of whom the class extends its condolences.
