Journalism. We believe it should help you live a better life.

That’s why we spend a lot less time on publishing mug shots and a lot more time helping you understand the employment market, figure out how to spend more time with friends and family with our events calendar, and what you can do to help businesses that have opened up. Make no mistake…we aren’t shy. We tackle the big stuff, like COVID and issues around race.

And if you believe in the value of journalism — that it should help, not exploit — please consider becoming a paid member of the Racine County Eye today. We can’t do this work without you.

Robert F. Larson, age 63, passed away Saturday at United Hospital Systems, Kenosha.  Robert was born in Racine, April 2, 1953, son of the late Floyd “Flip” and Anne (Nee:  Hein) Larson.

He will be dearly missed by his brother-in-law, best friend, and caretaker, David Miller of Racine; Aunt Ardys Larson of Tomahawk, cousins, other relatives and many dear friends.  In addition to his parents he was preceded in death by his sister, Sharon “Sharry” Miller.

Robert’s family wishes to extend their sincere gratitude to Alpha Homes and their entire staff, especially Valerie and Betty for their excellent care.  The many trips to various events, including Brewer games, bowling, the zoo, parks and around the city always gave Bob something to look forward to, and improved his quality of life greatly.
