Graveside Rites Slated For Lt. William Ring

Private graveside services for Lt. William R. Ring, 30, of 891 Tolita Ave., Coronado, member of a prominent Navy family and son of Coronado Councilman Elanor Ring, will be in Mount Hope Cemetery. Ring died of leukemia Wednesday at a hospital here after an illness of four months. His last active duty was on the staff of Commander Destroyer Flotilla 5 at Pearl Harbor. Born in Cornado, Ring was the son of Vice Adm. Stanhope C. Ring, USN, ret., a World War II hero and pioneer in naval aviation who died in 1963. Ring was the grandson of Navy Commodore James A. Ring of Washington, D.C., and the late Navy Capt. Ziba Wells Reynolds of Tunkhannock, Ps. He was the great-grandson of W. W. Stewar, an early San Diego settler. After attending Coronado schools, Ring entered the Naval Academy, graduating in 1958. He served on the destroyers Baussell and Buck and the attack cargo ship Tulare before his flotilla staff assignment. Surviving, in additions to his mother, are a brother, Lt. Cmdr. Stewart A. Ring, and a sister, Mrs. Robert Taylor Scott Keith Jr., both of Coronado. The family suggested contributions to the Leukemia (Cancer) Fund or Navy Relief. Johnson-Saum & Knobel Mortuary is in charge.
