Larry Franklin Wharton

August 10, 1946 ~ November 4, 2021 (age 75)


Larry Franklin Wharton, 75 years old, from Salmon Idaho, passed away on November 4th at 5:15 am at Eastern Idaho Regional Medical Center in Idaho Falls. A cowboy at heart, this “good-ol-boy” if not on his horse, spent most of his time hunting, fly fishing and riding his motorcycle. He also loved to dance to country music and was a master marksman. For 36 years he resided on 20 acres in Carey, Idaho where he was the Electrical Inspector for Blaine County, and he loved being part of the big hitch in the Wagon Days parade each year, in Sun Valley. Upon retirement, he followed his heart and moved to Salmon, Idaho to live out his final days. Larry was survived by his two daughters Kelly Barr and Heather Szucs, his brothers Ron & Dennis Wharton as well as two grandsons Kyle Kemp and Fabian Wharton and two granddaughters. A celebration of life will take place at a later date. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Elks Lodge, Salmon ID or the charity of your choice.
