A special thank you to the amazing team at Lexington Heritage Assisted Living Facility in Greenfield, WI for their loving care and support during his final months.
A formal funeral attended by family and friends would be difficult during these coronavirus pandemic times. Instead, his family will celebrate his life at a future date once COVID-19 releases its grip on this nation making it safer to gather together. To this end, the family is assembling memories of humor, charity, assistance, generosity and any of the countless ways he touched the lives of others, so that a story can emerge where all can gain more poignant insight into the special person that was Dave Larsen. Please send your memories and stories to his son Mike at email@example.com. Mike will also be happy to contact any interested parties for details of this future celebration.
