We were very sorry today to hear of the passing of Carl Larson of Oklee, Minnesota, six days after his 96th birthday. (He's pictured on the left above)
MPR's Dan Gunderson profiled the brothers in this 2008 piece. But it was a winter of tragedy in Oklee. Carl's 98-year-old brother, Bill (right above), died of exposure in November after looking for Carl, who had wandered off.
Carl died yesterday at a nursing home.
A funeral service will be held at 11 Tuesday morning at Salem Lutheran Church in Oklee.
Sweet Norwiegian bachelor farmers, I'll bet. I can see them in their small country church in 3 piece suits. Or riding tractors in to their small town bars. Or both. RIP, Bill and Carl
I am so sorry to hear this... Thanks for this story follow up. I hope their farm will stay in their family, just as it is. Once it is gone, it is gone. God Bless.
