“Remembering you on your birthday. Love you Lars. ”
1 of 1 | Posted by: Kristina Breitmeyer - Tupper Lake, NY

Lars Gunnar Vikstrom, 60 years old, passed away unexpectedly October 2, 2019. Lars was born October 23, 1958 in Wyandotte, Michigan to Arvilla and Fritz Vikstrom. He was the youngest of four children, Kerstin Inger, Kristina Margareta, and Erik Anders.

He is preceded in death by his parents, Arvilla and Fritz, his older brother Erik Anders, and his nephew Nils Vikstrom.
He is survived by sisters Kerstin Vikstrom and Kristina (Bruce) Breitmeyer, and his nieces and nephews, Andrea (Tim) Johnson, Melissa Smallwood, Paul Smallwood, Kiel Smallwood, Erik John Vikstrom and grand nieces and nephews, Brooklyn, Jordan, Gabriel, Riley, Dylan, Zack, and Audrey.

Lars had a love of life and never afraid to try something new, whether it was fishing, raising animals, or his latest endeavor, raising bees. He definitely had an entrepreneurial spirit. Lars was a very able mechanic starting at a young age in high school to the present day, running a truck repair business with his longtime friend and business partner, Bill Wagner. Lars was a very considerate person, always willing to help anyone, be it his many friends from over the years, to a stranger on the street that needed some extra food at times.

Lars will be remembered forever and missed by all.

There will be no calling hours. The family will be holding a private memorial service.
