Matthew E. Larson, age 18 of Hudson, WI, died tragically on July 27, 2015 in an airplane accident in Polk County, WI. Matt was born on January 17, 1997 to Eric and Stacey (Wolff) Larson in La Crosse WI. Matt attended schools in Amery, Baldwin and Hudson and was a recent graduate from Hudson High School in 2015. Like his father and brother before him, Matt worked at Mike’s Standard Service in Hudson and recently started attending Dakota County Technical College in pursuit of his Lineman certificate. Matt was also a dedicated member of the Hudson Fire Department Explorer program with aspirations to be volunteer fireman like his late uncle Craig.
Matt was a hard worker always quick to lend a helping hand, a loyal friend, had a larger than life personality with an amazing sense of humor and a heart of gold. Matt had a passion for many things in life – fishing, hunting, snowmobiling and his Chevy diesel truck that he could not get enough lights on. He loved a good country song and recently had a blast at his first Country Fest. More than anything Matt loved spending time with his family and large group of close friends.
He is survived by his mother, Stacey Larson of Hudson, WI; grandparents, Gerald and Sharen Larson of Hudson, WI and Peg Wolff of Hudson, WI; aunts and uncles: Jody (Charles “Chuck) Enloe of Hudson, WI, Jeffrey (Pamela) Larson of Hudson, WI, Molly (Robert) Callahan of Minneapolis, MN, and Lisa (Mike) Sicard of Somerset, WI; and cousins: Kyle (Autumn) Enloe of Stillwater, MN, Scott Enloe of Hudson, WI, Courtney (fiance, Brandon) Larson of Hudson, WI, Kirsten Larson of Hudson, WI, Samantha Wolff of Somerset, WI, Trevor Wolff of Somerset, WI, and Joey Callahan of Minneapolis, MN. He is preceded in death by his grandfather, Kent Wolff; and uncle, Craig Wolff.
A Time to Remember Matt’s Life will be from 4-8 p.m. on Friday, July 31, 2015 at St. Patrick’s Catholic Church, 1500 Vine St., Hudson with a prayer service concluding the evening at 8 p.m. Interment at Willow River Cemetery in Hudson.
Because the Larson men thought dressing up was highly overrated the family would suggest that the dress code for the service be casual, jeans and a t-shirt. In lieu of flowers, memorials are preferred. Services entrusted to the O’Connell Family Funeral Home of Hudson
