August 9, 1937 — February 20, 2020

Raynard Larson of Prior Lake passed away peacefully at his home on February 20, 2020 at the age of 82.

Raynard Kenneth Larson was born August 9, 1937 to Adolph and Ethel (Norberg) Larson in Fish Lake Township in Chisago County Minnesota.

Ray was raised on the family farm. He joined the United States Navy in 1955 at the age of 18, where he served 4 years in the communications field. It was during this time that he met Gala Hahn and they married upon his
discharge in 1959.

They moved back to Minnesota and Ray worked a variety of jobs until being hired by Northern Natural Gas where he loved working and eventually became a district manager and retired after over 40 years.

After retirement, Ray and Gala traveled the country in their 5th wheel camper spending winters in Arizona and summers in Minnesota. They moved back to Minnesota full time after the births of their grandchildren.
