Warren Ralph Larson

Warren R. Larson passed away at his residence in Dominion Village in Poquoson, Va. on June 14, 2010 at the age of 92.

Graveside services and interment will be in the Lusk Cemetery on June 23, 2010 at 10 a.m.

Warren was the first child born to Ralph and Ina Jewett Larson in Lusk, Wyo. on June 6, 1918. His father was a second generation rancher and his mother, a young pioneer schoolteacher, homesteaded in Niobrara County before their marriage.

After graduating from Lusk High School in 1938, Warren worked on the family ranch and was enlisted into the U.S. Army in October of 1942. After basic training, Warren joined the 902nd Engineer A. F. Hq. Co. and spent two years in the European theater, returning to the U. S. on December 5, 1945. After WW II, Warren returned to the Larson family ranch and upon the death of his father in the late 1950’s, joined his two brothers, Malter and Noal on the ranch.

In 1959, Warren married the love of his life, Virginia Lambert Larson and in 1963, they moved to Pine, Colo., purchased and remodeled an old hay and feed store building into their home and a gift store which became well known as the Pine Emporium. Warren’s handiwork was very visible as he was a creative problem solver and talented craftsman. Ginny operated the store and Warren commuted to Denver to work as a boilermaker.

After retirement, continuing to operate the Pine Emporium, Ginny and Warren enjoyed many trips in their RV, spending the winter months in the Southwest, visiting friends and relatives.

Warren was very active in the Pine Community, tirelessly giving his time to the North Fork Volunteer Fire Dept., the Pine Community Library and the Pine-Elk Creek Improvement Association. Warren was always there to give a hand when needed, no matter what the project. Warren and Ginny made many good friends in the Pine/Buffalo Creek communities and were quick to join a game of bridge, a picnic or a drive through the mountains.

In 2006, Warren and Ginny moved to Virginia to be near their son and daughter-in-law, Jim and Kay Hughes.

Warren is survived by his wife Virginia, their children, Jim and his wife Kay of Newport News, VA, Judy B. Freed of North Ft. Myers, FL and grandchildren, Brandy Brennan and wife Debi, Shawn Brennan and great grandchildren, Leilani, Lori, and Shawn Martin Brennan and Ayla Brennan. Warren was preceded in death by his brother Noal Larson. Also left to mourn his passing are his sister, Catherine Noah of Casper, WY, brother Malter Larson of Hot Springs, S. D. and sister-in-law Evelyn Larson of Lusk, Wyoming as well as many nieces and a nephew and their families.

Memorial donations can be made to the North Fork Volunteer Fire Dept., PO Box 183, Buffalo Creek, CO 80425 or the Pine Elk Creek Improvement Association, 16624 Pine Valley Road, Pine, CO 80470.
