Jerod Michael Larsen was born March 1, 1997, at 1 pound 12 ounces, to Dianna Peterson and Lance Larsen who live in St. Croix Falls. Jerod battled daily with the struggles of cerebral palsy and various medical issues, but his smile shined with love and his hugs could be felt to the core of your being. He was a very smart 23 year-old who loved everyone. He was a whiz on his computer, which gave him the freedom to communicate and accomplish things that he could not do on his own, and he loved loud music and gummy bears! His mom and dad were the light of his life, and he was the light of their lives. Jerod died at St. Paul Regions Hospital on May 2, 2020.
He was preceded in death by his dearly loved Gramma Marilyn Larsen.
Jerod is survived by his beloved pets Putz and Monkey; his mom, Dianna Peterson; dad, Lance Larsen; Gramma Bev and Grampa PeeWee Green; auntie and uncles Dan (Marlette) Peterson, Jo (Ed) Everson, Pockets (Vicky) Peterson, Barb (Jack) Copp, Dave (Cyndi) Larsen, many cousins and extended family and friends.
A celebration of life service will be held at a later date. Jerod passed away from medical complications, not from the co-vid 19 virus.
God danced the day Jerod was born, and today Jerod dances with God.
