Larry A. Hogetvedt Jr.

LARRY ALLEN HOGETVEDT, JR, age 51 of Mankato, died at home on Monday, August 17, 2015, surrounded by his family.

Born in Minneapolis on July 15, 1964, Larry was the son of Larry Sr. and Marlys (Burnside) Hogetvedt.  He attended school in Ham Lake, graduating in 1983.  Following graduation Larry served in Korea with the United States Army.  He drove truck for Country Hearth Bread Company for most of his career.  On June 23, 2012 he married Sheila Griffin in Waseca.  Together they moved to Mankato so that Larry could be nearer to his medical care.  Larry enjoyed collecting die-cast Nascars, playing games, movies, music, spreading the word of the Bible, caring for his beloved dog Trixie, and tearing around in his Dodge Charger.  He was a member of the Nascar Association, the NRA, and enjoyed donating to various cancer research charities.  He was a kind man known for sending flowers and leaving love notes, and more than anything he loved spending time with the children and grandchildren in his family.

Larry is survived by his wife, Sheila Hogetvedt of Mankato; his mother, Marlys Hogetvedt of Brainerd; one brother, Jesse Hogetvedt of Brainerd; three children, Lucas Mcrunnel, Tiffany Mcrunnel, and Heather Mcrunnel of the Twin Cities; four step-children, Nicole Griffin of Waseca, Dustyn (Krista) Fogal of Waseca, Coltyn Fogal and his fiancé Sara Dahle of Montgomery, and Chantyl Fogal of Mankato; and two step-grandchildren, Hayven Rux and Coltyn Fogal, Jr.  He was preceded in death by his father.

Private interment will be held at Fort Snelling National Cemetery in Minneapolis.  Dennis Funeral & Cremation Services is handling the arrangements for burial.

Larry’s family will host their own public service at 11:00AM on Saturday, August 22, 2015 at Trinity Lutheran Church in Janesville.
