Jul 24, 2021 at 09:47 am by WGNS

Larry Ralston has passed away. Many people will remember him as the man that greeted them at Premiere 6 Theater for so many years. Others as a photographer, but everyone who recognized him called him a friend.

Ralston passed away around 3:45AM Saturday morning (6/24/2021) after a short battle with cancer.


Visitation for Larry Ralston will be held this coming Saturday (7/31/2021) from 1:00-3:00PM at Jennings & Ayers Funeral Home at 820 South Church St. The memorial service will be there at 3:00PM with the burial to follow at Roselawn Cemetery.  

Theater Manager Shelby Brantley said, "Larry Ralston was one of the best men that I ever met. He was kind, loyal, and caring. I had the privilege of working with him for the past eleven years, and while I spent most of that time technically being Larry’s boss, I have learned a lot from him. We will miss his jokes and the red nose he wore in most pictures that brought joy and laughter, his friendly demeanor and smile that greeted everyone that came through the front doors, and his stories and advice that have helped us all grow in to the people we are today. Larry Ralston was loved so very much by all of the employees and patrons of Premiere 6! Please keep his family and friends in your thoughts and prayers."

He leaves behind a daughter, Sara Randall and son, Spencer Ralston.
