Obituary of William (Bill) Ernest Ring
With heavy hearts the family of William Ernest Ring announce his passing at the Carleton-Kirk Lodge on August 20th, 2022. Born in Saint John, NB he was the son of George Henry and Elizabeth “Betty” Helenor (nee Kean) Ring.
Bill was a transport driver having worked at Blacks Transfer LTD before moving on to the Department of Transportation and Infrastructure where he retired after 26 years of service.
Being a social man Bill’s outgoing personality gave him the ability to make friends wherever he went. He always enjoyed boating, coffee at Whitehead Country Store – to catch up on the news, and visits and a ‘toddy’ with his friends on the peninsula.
Bill is survived by his daughter Angela Ring; sons James (Theresa) and William “Bill” Jr Ring; step-sons Justin, Jaron, and Shane Sibson; grand-children Austin, Kyle, Chantelle, Samantha, Jordyn, Ireland, London, Preston, Dreden, Harlen, Dolton, Aria, Gray, and Linkin; sister Frances Scallan; brother George Ring; nieces and nephews Donna, Gerry, Mary Ellen, and Helen; special friend Bernice; as well as many cousins and friends. He is predeceased by his parents George and Elizabeth Ring; and brother-in-law John Arthur “Art” Scallan.
