Obituary

The family of Larry Michael Gray is saddened to share the news of his passing at the age of 78 on Monday, March 21st, 2022 at 7:27pm.

Larry was born in Granada, Mississippi on September 13th, 1943 to Howard Michael Gray and Mildred Gene Gray.

He is survived by his beloved wife Mary Gray; his sons James Gray, David Gray, and their spouses Carey Gray, and Alyssa Gray; his grandchildren Michael Gray, James Gray, Tyler Wilson-Hardy, Taylor Gray, and baby Gray on the way; his sisters Cheryl Frericks, Patty McCubbins, and their spouses Don Frericks, and Sammy McCubbins; his brother-in-law Chris Grider.

Larry graduated from Kansas State University. He loved fishing, Illini basketball, antiquing, and playing craps in Vegas. If you ever wore a tuxedo in or around Champaign, chances are it came from Ducky’s Formal Wear, and Larry’s hand had been on your back. He was an adoring husband, a loving father, and a devoted grandfather. He had a witty sense of humor and a laugh that could light up the room.

Visitation to be held on Friday, March 25th, 2022 from 5-7pm, services directly following at Owens Funeral Home in Champaign, IL, officiated by Dale Wilt.
