David J. Larson

February 29, 2020

David “Dave” Larson, 56, of Chippewa Falls, died peacefully of heart failure early in the morning Saturday, February 29, 2020 at his special friends’, Julie & Ben Proulx, house.

Dave was born on October 8, 1963 at Sacred Heart Hospital in Eau Claire. He was the third child of four born to Frances “Toots” (LeMay) & David Larson Sr.

Dave attended Chippewa area schools. He worked as a roofer and did various construction work. He was never married and did not have any children.

He grew up with his family around the Lake Wissota area, where they spent a lot of time on the water. He really enjoyed fishing, water skiing, boating and going on cherished family vacations. He also loved hunting, camping, going to rock concerts and riding his dirt bike.

Dave was really artistic. He loved drawing and wood burning. Later in life he spent a lot of time using his metal detector to find and collect old coins all over the country. He really enjoyed listening to his favorite 80’s classic rock music.

He LOVED animals. He took in and rehabilitated wounded birds, racoons and skunks. He rescued many animals and took them to the Owen Wildlife Rehab Center. Many stories of his rescues include freeing a racoon from a trap and sending him back into the wild.

Dave will be remembered for his quick whit and his hilarious one liners that would make you laugh for days.

Dave is survived by his father, David Larson Sr., of Fort Lauderdale, FL; brother, Mark (Shirley) Resch, of Eau Claire; sister, Mary (Tom) Joy, of Chippewa Falls; sister, Cheryl (Chip) Owen, of Excelsior Springs, MO; and several nieces, nephews and cousins.

He was preceded in death by his mother.
