William Ringrose Obituary


Bill Ringrose was born in Detroit on November 15, 1965 to Frederick and Carol Ringrose.

Bill’s life was centered on his family. He leaves behind his wife, Gayle; his children Heather, William (Tiffany), and Nichollette Ringrose. His cherished grandchildren Nathaniel Ringrose, Nicholas Zaitonia, Olivia Zaitonia, Emmalynn Ringrose, William Ringrose, and he was excited over the arrival of Canaan Ringrose in January. Bill is survived by his siblings, Frederick Ringrose and Steven (Mary) Ringrose. Each and every member of his family feels this loss greatly. His life will be remembered by all of us, each one with our own memories.

If you had the pleasure of meeting him, you knew him by his humor and his generosity. Bill had no acquaintances; only friends. He welcomed every person into his life, and gave what he could, even if he had to go without.

Bill’s generosity and warmth extended well past his family. He reached into his community and beyond, leaving his mark. Notably, his donations to the Ms. Amazing pageant and causes that hit close to home for him and his family and strangers alike.  

He was an avid fan of, well, everything U of M, Lions, Pistons, Red Wings, his hometown teams were his teams. Should you have gone to a game with him, you would have found that he would turn nearly rabid but more than likely, you would have been swept up in his energy and found yourself cheering harder than you had ever before. Keep that energy, as we now have to cheer for him.

On December 3rd, Bill said his farewell to this world after watching the Lion’s win. That last weekend was spent with his son, every moment spending his time doing exactly what he wanted to be doing. While we all wish for a last moment, a last goodbye, let us feel comforted by his joy in those moments.
