I didn’t know Larry “Zero” Stevenson, but there’s more than enough in his obituary to warrant my curiosity.
According to his obit, Zero, who died six days after his 61st birthday, was a U football star; he played one year in the NFL until a leg injury ended his career, according to this entertaining 2007 profile by the Downtown Journal’s Christopher Koehler.
MinnPost’s operations director Karl Pearson-Cater knew him from their days at City Pages and tweets that Stevenson, who delivered papers each Wednesday, was “a real cool guy.”
There’s a guest book on the obit site, but I’m curious enough to seek crowdsourcing here. If you have a Zero story, please tell it below. Seems only fair since he delivered so many of our stories.
