Larry Aldus Stundahl, 73, of Fergus Falls, MN passed away Wednesday, June 23, 2021, at his home after a courageous battle with cancer.
Larry was born April 29, 1948 in Ada, MN to Elster “Roy” and Joyce (Underdahl) Stundahl. He grew up on their family farm outside of Twin Valley, MN and was baptized and confirmed at Wild Rice Country Lutheran Church. In 1966 he graduated from Twin Valley High School. After high school he worked numerous jobs. In 1971 he worked for GTA Grain Elevator in Twin Valley and in 1972 Felton Farmers Elevator (Borup Elevator).
On November 12, 1971, Larry married the love of his life Harriet Faye Sip at Grace Lutheran Church in Ada, MN. Together they were blessed with four children. In 1985 the family started their own business, Bahama Gold Studio, which is still open today. In 1986 they moved to Fergus Falls, MN and Larry worked at Sidco Sunflower Plant in Breckenridge, MN. In 1990 he started working for Metz Bakery (Bimbo Bakery) in Fergus Falls where, after 29 years he retired in September of 2020.
Larry enjoyed spending his free time on the lake with his family. Fond memories of him driving his speedboat whipping them around on the innertube. He took great pride in his lawn care and loved going to his grandkid’s events. He was an avid Minnesota Twins fan and enjoyed going to games at any opportunity. He cheered on the Minnesota Vikings through the years, even when they weren’t winning. With his tremendous sweet tooth, he couldn’t resist Harriet’s homemade cookies with a heaping bowl of ice cream. He was a hard-working family man.
