Lowell Lee Larsen


Lowell Larsen died on Wednesday, March 1, 2023, at St. Luke’s Living Center in Marion. He was born on the Larsen farm, north of Burns, Kansas on December 18, 1932, to William and Adelia M. (Ireland) Larsen. His paternal grandparents Jacob and H. Annie (Jorgensen) Larsen were Danish immigrants who homesteaded the farm and land in the late 1870s. He lived on the Larsen farm until recently.

Lowell was a member of the Burns community his entire life. He was a 1950 graduate of Burns High School. Lowell was a livestock farmer with many interests. He was a ham radio operator and a private pilot who had a private airstrip at his farm. In the 1970’s he delivered private planes across the country. He was the Burns mail carrier for many years. Lowell did electrical work for area neighbors, helped at the hardware store, and helped his brother Clyde at his service station in Burns.

In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by his siblings, Milton, Clyde, Ruth Aubuchon, and Florence Biehl, niece Leah Fay Larsen and nephew Timothy Larsen. He is survived by his cousins Jeraldine (Larsen) Sprouse of Santa Barbara, CA, Esther (Larsen) Yeakly, Lawrence, KS  A. Cordell Larsen of Andover, and Rose (Larsen) Decker of El Dorado, and his nieces and nephews Phyllis (Larsen) Ericson of Lincoln, NE, Bruce Larsen of Parsons, Milton Larsen of Gig Harbor, WA, Eric Larsen of Chicago, David Larsen of Wichita, Bill Biehl of Lenexa, and Bonnie ( Biehl) Bohn of Basehor, KS and his very special neighbors, the Jodi and Jim Bob Watkins family.
