Jerry Larson Obituary

 Jerry Marvin Larson, 63, of Bovey, MN, passed away on Friday, August 18,

2023, surrounded by his loving family. He was born in Hibbing on March 18,

1960, to Walfred and Marlys (Karppi) Larson.  Jerry grew up in Marble, MN,

and went to Greenway High School, graduating with the class of 1978. He

started working with the Department of Natural Resources right after school and

was with them for close to thirty-five years, retiring at age fifty-five.  During that

time, Jerry was also the fire chief at the Calumet Fire Hall for many years. In

2011, Jerry decided to start moving into the home of who would later become his

wife, Peggy.  They were married on July 6th, 2019. Jerry was extremely handy

and fixed and updated their house and yard throughout the years.  He was an avid

nascar lover. He had a green thumb as he loved to garden whatever he could

outside while also having all of his houseplants inside.  He loved to fish and

spent many hours antiquing.  One of his favorite things was riding his Harley and

getting suited up in his leather gear.  Above all else, he adored his family and

especially his grandkids and being at home cruising around in his souped-up golf

cart.  Jerry was lucky to have his best buddies; Pickles, Roger, Sparky, Crubba,

Balls, and Fred who visited with him weekly. Jerry battled cancer for nearly five

years and even beat the disease twice.  He was strong-willed and fought until the

     very end. Jerry will be greatly missed. 

Jerry is survived by his loving wife, Peggy Larson, father, Walfred Larson, mother-in-

law, Evelyn Gregg, bonus girls; Mindy (Joe) Mikulich-Frings, Amber (Samuel) Kehoe,

Jenny (Andrew) Whiffen, Grandkids; Joven, Danyelle, Paisley, Dawson, Tucker,

TillieMay and Ruby, siblings; Julie (Todd) Rollins, Kathie (Jeff Clark) Moran, nieces;

Lindsey and Shannon and many other nieces, nephews, aunts, uncles, cousins and not to

forget, beloved dog, Ellie and cat, Jellyfish.

He is preceded in death by his mother, Marlys Larson.
