Larry Jason, 73, of Lacon Illinois, died on June 19, 2023 at Lacon Rehab and Nursing. Born in Peoria on June 30, 1949 to the late Edward and Hester (White) Jason, he married Karen Schupp Erkman on July 18, 1974. Karen passed away on April 9, 2023.

Larry was a veteran of the Army and worked at Caterpillar until he retired. He always enjoyed the outdoors and their many fishing trips. On any given day, you would see him out for a two-hour daily walk and no one was a stranger, he would visit with anyone.
