It was with great sadness that I read of Mr. Larson's passing. He was definitely one of my favorite teachers at Benson, and even after I graduated in 1961, I always made it a point to visit with him at each Tech Show.
When I returned from Vietnam in 1967 and reentered college as an Electrical Engineering major, it was Mr. Larson that I talked with at Benson and decided to switch my major to Education so I could become a Math teacher too. He had a profound effect on my life – probably more than any of my other teachers. I don't think I ever thanked him for that. It was just accepted between us. I returned to Benson in 1999 as a math teacher myself and was there until I retired in 2005.
I want to express my deepest sympathies to Mrs. Larson and your family. Teachers always wonder if all their efforts in trying to help students grow and become adults have any effect. In Mr. Larson's case there is no question. I was just one of the many students whose lives he touched and had a positive effect on. He will always be remembered.
Lee and I worked together at Benson in the counseling department. He was so appreciated and loved by the faculty. He was a very special person to me in my workplace. He was a blessing.
Offering our deepest condolences during this difficult time.
One of the Finest Men I have ever Met. Kind and deeply Interested in all People He Met. My wife and I felt a closeness to Lee and his wonderful wife. God has never made a better Man, Rest in Peace Lee,We will miss you!Love Jerry & Carol Lundberg
