Larry Bowie, a guard who played for the Vikings for eight seasons in the 1960s, has died.

Bowie's career with the Vikings ended in 1968 when he had a blood clot removed from his brain during the season.

Bowie, 73, was taken by the Vikings in the sixth round of the 1962 draft out of Purdue. He was a starter in five of his eight seasons.

A memorial service for Bowie is scheduled for Saturday at 2 p.m. at Sandberg Funeral Home in North St. Paul.
