Patriot Act in Great Kills:

Minutes after the Jets shocking victory over the Patriots, he ran out in a fit of joy and took a leap with a snow coaster that seconds later had him skidding into heavy traffic on Cleveland Avenue, and there he died.

The Times recall the man:

Mr. Larsen was best known for things big — indeed, he did everything big. Big decorations at Halloween and Christmas. Big Sunday afternoons with big groups of friends watching the big games.

He would mount a 12-foot inflated snowman, wearing a top hat and a Jets jersey, on his truck when tailgating at Jets games.

“He was just always having fun.”
