Michael S. Larson went home to the Lord on May 23, 2021, at age 64, surrounded by his loving family.
Born in Terre Haute, Indiana and raised in Lindstrom, Minnesota, he truly enjoyed all that a small town in Minnesota had to offer. Whether it was skiing, enjoying lake time with his friends, earning his Eagle Scout, or working at the A&W and Sheriff’s Department, Michael loved it.
Michael went on to earn his Bachelor’s degree from the University of Minnesota and entered the world of Managed Healthcare. For over 37 years, Michael shared his strong knowledge and skills at multiple national healthcare companies including: United Healthcare, Encompass, Conifer Health Solutions and Health Balance Strategies with GEHA. Michael enjoyed the relationships he established with his peers and friends of the Industry for many years. Golfing with his friends, traveling to each of the coasts and enjoying lake time with his family were treasured moments for him. When Michael was in the room, one had to smile for his wonderful laugh, twinkling blue eyes and beholding smile engaged everyone.
Michael is survived by his loving family; wife Cynthia, daughter Danielle Perez Valadez, son-in-law Mario, granddaughter Madison and grandson Johan Michael. Michael is also survived by his loving sister Margot Weyandt (Paul), brothers Jeffrey (Rocio) and Eric (Lori); in-laws Lawrence and Kathleen Belair, Joe Belair (Wendi), Beatrice Stelten (John), Andrea Zimmermann (Todd), Elaine and Doug Belair along with many very special nieces, nephews and treasured friends.
Michael was preceded in death by his cherished mother Mary Lois Larson and father Harry T. Larson.
