Word has been received by relatives here of the death of August Larson at his home in San Mateo, Calif. Monday, June 1.
Mr. Larson, who was a resident of Lusk for many years, died suddenly of a heart attack. Mr. and Mrs. Bryan Burge visited Mr. and Mrs. Larson a couple of months ago and he appeared in the best of health at that time.

He was married here to Miss Amy Barnes and they have a son, Charles "Buster" Larson who resides in Idaho.
About 10 years ago he was married while living in Cheyenne where he was employed at the airport and later transferred to California where the couple has since made their home.
