Theodore Ronald Larsen was born on April 15, 1940 at his home in Rosemount
where he went on to attend high school. Beginning as a young boy in his
grandfather's shop and through much of his life, Ted worked on cars. From
1971, he managed service stations for twelve years in southern California
before going on to own and operate a station for another eight years in
Oceanside, CA. He returned home to Minnesota and was employed last by
Jerome Foods, Faribault, where he was a truckload driver and forklift
operator. More than anything else, he enjoyed fishing and was active in that
way all his life. Ted was a sociable character and would make friends with
near anyone he met.
Including those lives of which he was an integral part, he is survived by
eleven children, Lynn Marie, Ricky (Bianca) Lindstrom, Sherry (Vance)
Peters, Shirley (Steve) Puschinsky, of Bemidji, their children and
grandchildren, daughter Susan Lynn (Brice) Crawford of Reno, Nevada, and
their children, Lynnea and Jessikah, daughter Tammy Hilda (Joel) Bogard of
Sparks, Nevada, and their children, Cecilia, Karylton and Rebekah, son
Tanner Theodore (Meghan) Larsen of Saint Paul, son Trevor Olaf (Bobbi
McDonald) Larsen and their children Preston, Gillian and Henry, daughter
Sheryl Breeanne Larsen, sons Taylor Albert Larsen, and Troy Christopher
Larsen of Faribault; many nieces and nephews; and four brothers, Martin
Larsen Jr. of Fort Worth, Texas, Robert Larsen of Farmington, Russell Larsen
and James (Lisa) Larsen of Northfield.
He was preceded in death by his parents, Martin, Sr. and Hilda (Bartelt)
Larsen, and two brothers, Fred and Arthur Larsen.
