Gerald V. Larson 1934—2018
Rev. Gerald Vendale Larson Sep. 17, 1934 – Dec. 30, 2018
Gerald Larson passed away December 30, 2018 after a 20-year battle with Parkinson 's disease. He approached life with courage, gentleness, fortitude, and faith. For 39 years he ministered through Lutheran churches in Seattle, WA, Berlin, NH, Racine, WI and Rockford, IL (Our Savior's Lutheran Church). Though his calling was in ministry, he also found joy through singing, woodworking, graphic design, and traveling extensively with his beloved wife of 53 years, Judy. While we will miss him we believe that he is with Jesus today in Paradise (Lk 23:43). His legacy continues through his family, Stephanie (Robert) Hughes, Kristen (David) Hair, Laurie (Jay) Lundquist, eight grandchildren and three great-grandchildren.
A memorial service will be held at 11:00a.m, January 17, 2018 at Mt. Olive Lutheran Church, Rockford, IL. Friends are welcome at 10:00am. Burial will be at E. Norway Lake Lutheran, New London, MN beside his wife. Memorials may be given to The Micah Project in Honduras and Mt. Olive. Arrangements by Olson Funeral & Cremation Services, Ltd.
