Todd A. Larson, of Wausau, passed away too young at the age of 48, on January 5, 2021, at Marshfield Medical Center.
Todd was born on October 11, 1972, to James Kapell and Tina Williquette in Green Bay, Wisconsin. Shortly after his birth, he was adopted by parents Ronald and Elaine (Dvorak) Larson. Throughout his life, Todd worked as a Forklift Driver at Wausau Supply, Wausau Daily Herald, and Linetec. He was a member at First United Methodist Church and had many hobbies but especially enjoyed hunting, fishing and camping; but above all, he loved spending time with his kids and dogs- even nursing one back to life due to Parvo. Though Todd was adopted early in life, he found comfort and pleasure in getting to know his biological mother in his adult years. His family will miss his smile, his kindness, and his compassion- he would do anything for a friend.
Todd is survived by his wife of 19 years, Elizabeth “Betsy” Larson; children Steven (Kasey) Larson, Chloe Larson, Lincoln Larson, London Larson, and Dane Larson; parents Ronald and Elaine Larson; sisters Linda (Garrett) Jensen and Paula (Jim) Bartz; biological mother Tina Williquette; biological sisters Heather Williquette and Geri Kapell; four nieces; two nephews; dogs Wrigley, Cubby and Bentley; and countless friends. He is preceded in death by his biological father, James Kapell; and Grandma Vera Dvorak, and Grandma Marie Larson.
A celebration of Todd’s life will be held later this Spring. In lieu of flowers, memorials in Todd’s name can be sent to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, 501 St. Jude Place, Memphis, TN 38105.
Todd’s family wishes to express their deep gratitude to the staff at Marshfield Medical Center for the care and compassion shown to him during his stay.
Helke Funeral Home is assisting the family.
