Dan LaRose was a former NFL football player who spent time with the Lions, 49ers, Steelers, & Broncos.  He was an All American at the University of Missouri and played on an undefeated 1960 team, who won the 1961 Orange Bowl. Dan finished 8th in the Heisman Trophy voting in 1960. Big Danny LaRose is still considered one of the top five players to ever play for the Missouri Tigers and was coached by the great Dan Levine.


Dan LaRose was a family man, a vivacious reader and collector, who enjoyed the outdoors.  He was heavily involved in the NFL Alumni and many local charities. He also competed in the Senior Olympics.


Auctioneers Note:This is a clean and fun auction. You could tell that Dan and his wife Janet took extra time to collect just the right thing. If you are local, we look forward to meeting you, and if you are making the trip up north with us, it will be well worth your time. The LaRose home is in an idyllic “up north” setting, nestled back in the pines. Tons of good road parking and room for at least a dozen handicap spots up close. Not an all-day auction, but loaded with items of interest and value. See you at the auction - Braun and Helmer


P.S. David was an old friend of Dan’s from conducting the NFL Alumni auctions, from almost 20 years ago!
