LARRY EUGENE PRAY, age 66, passed away Sunday, December 25, 2016 at home in Riverside, California after a long battle with cancer. He was born in Riverside Community Hospital on March 16, 1950 to Lola B. and Ted Pray, both predeceased. Larry graduated from Riverside Poly High in 1968. After working in the restaurant business for several years, he, along with several other Poly High graduates built, owned and operated the very successful Aesop's restaurant in Riverside.

After many successful years running the restaurant, Larry changed careers, eventually retiring from his job as an Analyst for the County of San Bernardino. Larry was a kind, loving, generous husband and friend who will be missed by many. He leaves behind his beloved wife Sandra; two cousins, Shelley Smith Krueger (Marc), John Scott Smith (Lona) and their adult children, Garry Smith (April) and Tracy Smith Nichols (Nick.) A crypt side service will be held at Olivewood Cemetery for family and friends on Saturday, January 7, 2017 at 11:00 a.m. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Mary S.
