Former Cowboy Pat Larson loses battle with leukemia

Posted: Updated:

Pat Larson, standout defensive tackle for the Wyoming Cowboys football team between 1993-96, passed away on Monday following a battle with leukemia.    

Larson was part of one of Wyoming's most successful football periods ever in the mid-90s.  As a senior, Larson helped lead Wyoming to the Western Athletic Conference Pacific Division Championship and a spot in the inaugural WAC Championship Game in 1996.  That season closed with a 10-2 record and a national ranking of No. 22 in the final polls. 

Larson earned Second Team All-WAC honors as a senior.  He was also a redshirt freshman on the 1993 Wyoming team that won a share of the WAC regular-season championship and went on to play in the Copper Bowl in Tucson, Ariz.

The Stillwater, Minn., native was born June 24, 1974.

Larson's family has confirmed that a celebration of his life will be held on Thursday, June 2, at 2 p.m. at the Plum Creek Church located at 960 South Interstate 25 in Castle Rock, Colo.  Casual attire is preferred for the ceremony.  Memorials will go towards a scholarship fund in Larson’s name.  Additional information on the ceremony may be obtained through Olinger Andrews Chapel at (303) 688-3191. 

A memorial celebration in his hometown will be conducted at a later date.
