United States Army

Lars was a 1969 graduate of Oskaloosa High School and then attended William Penn College. He was drafted by the U.S. Army and was inducted on February 24, 1971. He served for almost two years, with ten months of that service overseas as a heavy vehicle driver in Germany. He was discharged on December 22, 1972.

After returning to Iowa, Lars worked at Hy-Vee Supermarket, Ideal Manufacturing, Clow Valve Company, Lynn’s Poultry, Mich Coal Company, Bloom Builders, and the V.A. Hospital before he found his niche with the City of Oskaloosa in 1988. In the 22 years, he worked for the street maintenance department, his favorite job with the city was running the street sweeper. He was a skilled snow-plow operator, too, and was the Snow Plow Rodeo Champion for three years when he represented Oskaloosa in Des Moines in the state-wide competition. Lars also served as a volunteer firefighter.
