Jerry Allen Larson, 82 of Allegan, Michigan, passed away Friday, March 17, 2023 at his home with his family by his side. He was born April 22, 1940, in DeKalb, Illinois, the son of the late Melvin and Ada (Drury) Larson.

He was blessed to have a wonderful wife and loving family to share life with, and he did his best to make every day count.
