He leaves to cherish his memory three daughters, Gail Russell, Tanya Pridgen, and Pamela Pridgen; two sons, Alonzo Pridgen, and Raymond Pridgen Jr., son-in-law Cory Dill; seven grandchildren, Rayonna, Alissa, Alonzo Jr., Nazjier, Kyle, Kya, and Kenyon; three great grandchildren; a sister Phyllis Bost; special niece, Chico Johnson and host of nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends.

Rest well dad until we see you again.  We promise to stay close and make you proud.
