Edward E. Larson, known as Ed, Eddie or Big Ed to those he loved, passed away suddenly in his home in Crawfordsville, on Jan. 3, 2022, at the age of 64.

Born Oct. 13, 1957, at East Chicago, Indiana, he was one of five children to parents Guy and Margaret Larson.

Ed graduated from Lake Central High School in St. John, Indiana in 1975. He worked at Larson Realty in Lake County, Indiana with his parents, and then at the steel mill before moving to Las Vegas. When he returned to Indiana in the 1990s, he moved to Crawfordsville and became the course superintendent at the Crawfordsville Country Club, a position he’s held proudly for 25 years. Ed loved the club and became friends with many of the members. He had a positive influence on the young people who worked for him and in the lives of the many people he befriended. He loved horse-racing, sports, bingo, music and watching his children and grandchildren grow into compassionate, kind and hard-working people. He cared about many people and wanted what was best for everyone he knew. He will be missed by many.
