David Larsen worked at Silk FM and more recently, K96.3.

K96.3 announced Larsen’s death on Twitter on Sunday (June 12).

“Our dear friend David Larsen lost his battle to cancer. David was an integral part of K96.3 and the Kelowna community. He was also an outstanding husband, father, and friend. We will miss him greatly.”
