Not sure what to say?

Mr. Larson, Thank you. It was an honor knowing you. Our acquaintances informed me a year ago of your passing. Even then it was big news to me while in absentia. Your a good man.

Wow! what sad news. That the world has lost such a inspireing individual. The art,I got only a B; the football,lessons, and the guidence on the the wrestling matt. He trulely was an all important part of our lives. I've missed him from the day I graduated; now he's gone . Now he's part of god's kingdom in heaven. Thank you Arlis for ever shareing him with us all. Peace be with you!

Larson family, I just heard of Coach's passing. He was my favorite teacher at Johnson and he got me interested in art when I was in the 9th grade. I even had him for two peroiods of art when I was a senior. He was a great wrestling coach and he let me work the clock at tournaments. He was a wonderful person and will be missed by many.

What a great loss to the Larson family... as well as the many lives that he has touched!

I have had the privelage of wrestling for coach for 3 years as well as having him as my homeroom teacher '75-77'.

Coach/Teacher Larson instilled great values in the students & athletes that had the great fortune to listen to his words of wisdom... God Bless!

God Bless you Mr larson, our prayers are with you and your family

Coach Larson was a wonderful teacher, coach, and mentor. You will be missed. Thank you for the time you gave your students at Johnson High School. I am sure the Class of 1977 will all agree. Thoughts & prayers to his family & friends during this time and in the future.

Thank you for the friendship and all the memories Coach Larson. We are all better for having known you.

What a great man, teacher, and coach. Mr. Larson had the capability to teach the individual as well as the group, always knowing each member of his group/team/class and how best to foster their individual talents. He will always be known to me as a quiet leader that garnered respect and attention from those around him and I am blessed to have known him, learned from him, and will always remember him. Thanks Coach!

RIP coach Larson. You were one of my favorite teachers and a great coach.
