A former Durham resident says the town should create a permanent memorial to longtime resident Charlie Larsen, who passed away earlier this month.
DJ Asselin refered to his former classmate as "Mr. Durham" during his 90-minute radio show on the Brain Injury Radio Network Monday night.
"A permanent memorial. I really believe it would get quite an outpouring," said Asselin.
During the program, Durham First Selectman Laura Francis told Asselin the community would likely support a memorial and suggested several ideas.

Asselin was also joined on the program by Middlefield resident Bill Glueck, who also was a classmate of Larsen's, as well as his father, a former volunteer firefighter with the Durham Volunteer Fire Company.
A memorial service for Larsen was held last weekend at Coginchaug High School.
