Mr. Larsen is survived by a wife and five children to mourn his death.

The funeral was held Sunday afternoon, a short prayer at the home, and from there the body was taken to the Danish church, where a large number of friends and neighbors gathered to pay their last tribute to their departed friend.

Services were conducted by Rev. Cook of Owen and Rev. Jensen of Withee, interment in the Danish Cemetery.
