Of late years Mr.Larson was subject to heart trouble and especially since the death of his wife, three years ago, his health declined rapidly.
The end came quietly and peacefully with little suffering. He often expressed the wish that he could go without a long illness- thus not causing those who loved him any extra work and trouble. He loved to have his children and grand children visit him altho he could not visit with them as much as he liked, as his hearing was impaired. He was active to the hour of his death in the work he loved and worked at his entire life.
Funeral services was conducted by Rev Langehough Wednesday July 28 at 1:30 P M at the Lyle Lutheran church and interment was made in Pleasant Hill cemetery.
