Obituary for Russell Seymour Larson

Russell Seymour Larson, 84, of Howell, Michigan passed away on Monday, January 31, 2022.

Russell was born in Detroit, Michigan on April 23, 1937 to the late Rex and Dorothy Larson.  As a young man and in his later years, Russell played hockey, handball, loved golf, skiing, played in his school marching bands and loved to walk.  He was a proud graduate of Michigan State University with a bachelor’s degree in engineering.  Russell worked for the same company for almost 40 years before retiring in 2004. 

He married the love of his life, Shirley Mackey, on July 14, 1962.  The couple lived in Livonia, then moved to Northville, and eventually, Howell, Michigan after he retired.  He was proud to have built all three of their family homes.  His time with family was something Russell always cherished. Russell was easy-going, kind and funny with a most positive outlook. He took his family to almost every National Park in the continental United States and Canada. Later, with Shirley he traveled the world. He taught his grandchildren how to ice skate and play golf. He loved watching his grandchildren play sports and almost never missed a game. He and Shirley surprised their grandchildren with a Christmas Disney trip for them all together and the times he spent taking them various plays. He was so proud of all of his grandchildren.

Beloved husband of Shirley for 59 years.  Devoted father of Deborah King (Darren) and Sandra Berghofer (James). Proud grandfather of Brady King, Kendall Berghofer, Kiley Berghofer, and Reese King.  Dear brother of Linnea King. He is already missed and forever loved.
