Larson “Lars” Duke Gunselman, of Kansas City, Missouri gained his angel wings on June 4, 2021.
Larson was born on October 18, 2017 in North Kansas City to Mikey and Nicole Gunselman. Right from the start, he was a lively, free spirit whose energy could not be matched, except by his big brother, Lincoln. Larson was often found dancing, singing, and even occasionally howling at the moon. He enjoyed spending time outdoors and loved riding the tractor, the "ATTVs", digging holes, running around in just his undies and peeing outside. He knew every construction machine with great detail and would frequently talk about excavators, skid steers, and bull dozers. Lars loved playing in any source of water, no one enjoyed swim lessons more than him! He also enjoyed being with his loving family and was a wonderful snuggler. He was definitely a daddy's boy and always wanted Mikey to cuddle and put him to bed. Lars was the Baby Bird to his Mama Bird and often wanted to be in her snuggle nest. Though his time on Earth was brief, Larson touched so many lives with his bright smile, infectious laugh, and big bear hugs.
He will forever be fondly remembered and greatly missed by his parents, Mikey and Nicole; brother Lincoln; grandparents; Julie Cline & Dave Jewell, Shelley & Ed Macgee, Michael Gunselman; aunts, uncles and counsins; Zac & Lyndsy Morton (Evie & Ellis), Curtis & Ashley Bramble (Sydney, Savannah, & Colin), Jonathan & Michaela Cline, Noah & Nikki Jaksetic
A celebration of life will be held at Park Hill High School on Thursday June 10, 2021. The visitation will be from 4 to 6pm with the service immediately following.
