Richard Wilhelm Larson

Born Nov. 29, 1936 in Duluth, MN, passed on Wed., Oct. 5, 2022 at his home in Coon Rapids, MN.

After fighting a battle with cancer, he went peacefully into glory with his Lord and Savior Jesus Christ while surrounded by his loving family.

He was preceded in death by his loving parents, Wilhelm and Edna Larson; wife, Marge Larson; sons, David and Daniel Larson; granddaughter, Katelyn Horton; brother-in-law, Dan McClernan; sister-in-law, Patricia Chapple; brother-in-law. John Chapple; and many other relatives and friends.

Dick had a larger than life personality and all will miss his many stories and fun loving ways! He worked for and retired from U.S. Steel Corp. (Duluth and Iron Range plants) and afterward work for and retired from Virginia, MN Public Utilities.

He was an avid fisherman and deer hunter and especially loved and enjoyed spending time with his fishing and hunting buddies!

He will be deeply missed by all who know and loved him, however, because of his faith in salvation through Jesus Christ, we look forward to seeing him again in Eternity.
