Denise, Jon, & Erika.......My deepest sympathy is extended to all of you! So many good memories from the "good old days" of Finley Jr. High to RHS. Thought about Jon many times since my retirement in 2012. Still sub at the H.S. and Jon's name comes up quite often, in good ways, of course......stories about him always made for a good laugh & he will never be forgotten by those who were around him! He was definitely a legend and those of us that knew him will always remember him as being a good buddy. Will truly be missed by all who had the pleasure of knowing him. Bob Grant

We were so sorry to hear about the loss of Jon. I grew up on the same street with the Larson’s and the families were all friends. I can remember when we came home to visit my parents, our daughter Melissa would play with Erica.
Prayers are being sent you you and your children.

Grew up and spent many a morning at his house before High School started, and always had a good laugh watching The 3 Stooges on TV, and then running up the street to just make 1st bell for HomeRoom attendance at West Mifflin South...Jon was a “gentle giant”, his parents were always nice to us...and he was “one hell of an athlete”, and enjoyed Football practices daily with him.
He was a good friend and I was very glad to have “growing up” time with him.
R.I.P. my friend. My condolences to the families.😔🙏
