Quoted from Helena IR, 06/11/2011: Daniel H. Larson died unexpectedly at his home in Seaver Park, East Helena, on June 6, 2011. He was born on July 5, 1942, in Reno, NV to Leonard and Dorothy Larson. Dan grew up in the Clancy area and graduated from Jefferson High School, Boulder, in 1960.

Shortly after graduation he enlisted in the United States Air Force. Upon completion of his military service he returned to Montana and was employed by ASARCO, East Helena, as a machinist. In 1986 he started his own company, Dan's Drive Line, which he operated until his death. The business started from a chicken coop in his backyard and grew to become one of the finest machine shops in Montana. His talent as a machinist made him one of the best in the business.

A hard worker and perfectionist in his work, Dan also knew how to relax. Summers found him riding his Harley Davidson with friends and exploring the wonders of Montana and the Western states. Winters were for skiing, snowmobiling and enjoying winter outdoor activities. Dan's sense of humor and his amazing ability to remember the details of the stories he told will be greatly missed by all.

Dan was preceded in death by his parents and a brother, Robert. Dan is survived by his sister, his daughter and son, and seven grandchildren.

A memorial service was held at Anderson Stevenson Wilke Funeral Home. Interment with military honors followed at Montana State Veterans Cemetery at Fort Harrison. All Dan's biker friends rode their bikes in the funeral precession to the cemetery. A reception was held at East Helena Fire Hall. Condolences may be sent to the family by visiting:
