Tom Larson was born on March 31, 1957, to Robert and Bonnie Larson in Des Moines, Iowa. He was the youngest of four children. When Tom was a small child, the Larson family settled in Loveland, OH, where they opened Bonnie Lynn Bakery in 1963. Tom began working diligently at the family-owned business at a young age. Tom was a 1975 graduate of Little Miami High School. He had a passion for the outdoors and achieved the rank of Eagle Scout through the Boy Scouts of America. He then attended trade school at the Dunwoody Baking Institute in Minneapolis, MN . He would soon embark on a life of baking. He met his wife Cindy of 45 years in Cincinnati where they raised 4 children and were blessed with 5 grandchildren.
Tom lived life to the fullest through simple pleasures; he enjoyed baking anything from cheesecake to muffins, was a talented wood craftsman, a skilled pen turner, loved cooking for large crowds, especially his famous homemade pizzas that proved to be legendary at every function, and appreciated a good game of duckpin bowling. Being a grandpa came naturally to Tom even to those that weren’t his own grandchildren. He had an uncanny ability to reach people in a deep and positive way. Tom will be missed by all who knew him.
