 Milt Larsen
April 9, 1931 – May 28, 2023


We’ve lost our beloved co-founder, and our hearts are hurting.


Milt passed away peacefully in his sleep just a few days after receiving special recognition of the Castle’s 60th anniversary at our 2023 awards show. The moment was deeply felt by all in attendance, and Milt received two thunderous and prolonged standing ovations. We are grateful to have had the opportunity to say thank you one last time to our cherished co-founder for bringing so much magic into all our lives.



Milt never wanted to grow up, and his childlike wonder sparked an imagination that had no boundaries. Milt was an inspiration to all of us, with a life that was full to the very last moment.



Your Board of Directors, Board of Trustees, Arlene Larsen, Erika Larsen, Jessica Hopkins, Randy and Kristy Pitchford, the staff, and everyone else who loves Milt are committed to continuing his vision and ensuring our club and its remarkable clubhouse will be with us for a long, long time.


Thank you, Milty. We love you. And we miss you.
