  1. Paul Larson says:

    Dear Mark, Jenny and Jon, This is Borg Larson’s youngest….from Indian Beach Road on the east side of Green lake. So sorry for your loss. Dave was such a nice guy….though it’s been years…. Take care.. Paul Larson, Spicer

  2. We met Dave and Kathy Larson through our mutual profession of Neuroradiology. They became dear friends to us over a span of more than 40 years. Being with them brought joy to our lives. Dave was a remarkable man, a fine friend, and in many ways an inspiration. For us, Dave’s passing is both a sadness and for him a liberation.
