Gregory Jon Ring died unexpectedly Sunday, Dec. 30.
Greg was born March 20, 1958, to Janice Faye (Breault) and George Ring, and remained a lifelong resident of Somerset, Wis. Greg was an encyclopedia of sports knowledge, with an emphasis on his home-state teams from elementary school through professional levels. His other great passion was finding joy in stirring the pot at work and watching the ensuing chaos with a wide grin. However, Greg was happiest whenever surrounded by family and friends, whether it be around the kitchen table or the pool. Greg worked hard and dedicated his life to his girls – MaryAnn, Stephanie, Sadie (deceased), Kellie, and the family pugs, Trixie and Lola. Greg often displayed this love by teasing and harassing his ladies relentlessly, with his merriment increasing the more riled up they became. Without knowing Greg, you may think it is cruel, but knowing him, you just couldn’t help but join in.
Greg was preceded in death by his daughter Sadie Lynn Ring.
Greg is survived by his wife, MaryAnn; daughters Stephanie and Kellie; parents, George and Janice Faye Ring; siblings, Rod, Shelley (Waco), Mike, Monique (Mike), Pat (Sue), Sheila; mother-in-law, Marilyn McCarty and the late J. Thomas McCarty; brothers-in-law, Tom (Darla), Jim (Shelly), and Michael (Becky) McCarty; nieces and nephews, Sarah (Vinnie) Baar, Colin (Angela) Early, Sean Early, Ben, Brady, Georgia Hammer, Roxanne Ring, Brenda McCarty, Marshall, Mitchell, Matthew McCarty, Brittany and Sean McCarty, Connor, Michaela, and Quinn Baar.
