Lars Jay Larson, age 44 of Nebraska City passed away on November 3, 2022, at CHI Nebraska Heart Hospital in Lincoln, with his family by his side. Lars was born November 29, 1977, in Omaha, the son of Harry and Lynda (Kuhn) Larson.
Lars grew up and attended elementary school in Louisville, until the 4th grade. In 1987, Lars and his family moved to Nebraska City. It was there that Lars attended Nebraska City Public Schools and graduated from Nebraska City High School in 1996. After high school, Lars attended the University of Nebraska-Lincoln until he headed back home to join the family business at Larson Motors.
Lars found the love of his life in 2001, Krissy Tatum, and was united in marriage on June 9, 2006, in Nebraska City. Their union would be blessed with two beautiful daughters Jordyn Mariah and Mira Louann. He was incredibly proud of his daughters and was quick to say so.
On Saturday afternoons Lars could be found on his Jeep drives with Krissy. He deeply enjoyed going to the farm, hunting, fishing, running his beloved dog Colt, mushroom hunting, shooting guns, and driving his Razor. On Wednesdays, Lars enjoyed having lunch with his close friends or hanging out at the farm, and it was well known not to change his Wednesday schedule. He was always making sure to spend time with his family and friends, and he wanted everyone around him to feel special and known. Lars also greatly enjoyed watching his girls play sports, Chiefs football, LEGO building with his girls, video gaming, collecting sports cards, and smoking meat on the Traeger.
