Farewell Lars

We are sad to announce that former North Country Bears President Lars Steltzner passed away on Thursday evening August 21st after a long battle with cancer. Lars was a great guy, and a good friend, and his presence will be missed by all who knew him. He is survived by wife Judy and daughters Heidi and Gretchen (Erik) Funk.

On behalf of the North Country Bears, the board had sent Lars flowers a week or so earlier and we just heard back that they did indeed brighten his day. A donation will be made to his Lakeview Hospice in his honor.

A memorial service will be held on Sunday, Sept. 14, 2008, at 2 p.m. at the First Presbyterian Church in Stillwater, Minnesota. A full obituary can be read in the Stillwater Gazette.

Memorials/donations in honor of Lars may be directed to the music program at your place of worship, your favorite library, or the Lakeview Hospice Program.

Farewell Lars! Your hardy laugh will be missed...
