Celebrating the life of Robert "Bob" Ring
Thank you for signing Robert "Bob" Ring's Guestbook
Although I knew Bob from the times I was in Bluffton, I truly consider it an honor to have known him. I loved playing golf with him and listening to his Baston accent. Boo, my heart goes out to you as well as prayers for God's hand of comfort to be upon you!

I had the good fortune to play hockey and also work with Ringo. Great goalie and fun guy who honored me by being in Betsey's and my wedding. Fond memory - we were warming Bobby up before a game - he was just plain fast and quick. So we all decided to just flip our shots into the air and let them bounce in front of him. Drove him crazy and he left the net! Goalies, they are all flakes!
Boo and Bobby made it possible for me to fulfill one of my buckets list items - they somehow got tickets to the Masters and invited Betsey and I to join them.
Take Care Ringo
Love from Dever and Betsey to you and Boo

Every time I saw Bob, he always had the most beautiful smile on his sweet face. Never has anyone had more love of life and family ( especially Boo) than this wonderful man. He will be sorely missed by everyone who had the pleasure of knowing him!! My heart is saddened by Boo's loss!!

I had the great pleasure of knowing Bob for almost 2 years while being employed at Berkeley Hall. What a delight he was to be around. Always full of energy and humor. He will be missed but we take great joy in knowing where he is. Praying for the family. God bless.
