Floyd Ring

December 27, 1937 — November 23, 2023

Floyd James Ring, Jr., better known as Jim, Jimmy, or Papa, passed away November 23, 2023, in Edmond, Oklahoma, following a courageous battle with cancer. He was 85 years old.

Jimmy was born December 27, 1937, in Red Rock, OK to Floyd James Ring, Sr. and Dorris Mae (Bontz) Ring. Raised on the family farm in Red Rock with his brother Joe, Jimmy graduated from Red Rock High School in 1956 and earned an accounting degree from Oklahoma State University. 

On December 24, 1960, he married Joyce Kaye Veach at Red Rock First Christian Church. The couple first lived in Tulsa before relocating to Oklahoma City. Jimmy worked as an IRS auditor his entire career, retiring from the IRS after 31 years of service. 

Jimmy’s love for his family was evident through his actions and the time he invested in attending his grandsons’ activities. Whether it was a baseball game, a choral performance, or a birthday dinner, he was there. Jimmy served as a Mason for over 65 years, attending Masonic functions as a Past Master of Britton Lodge #434. He was a distinguished 33rd Degree Mason, as well as Scottish Rite. Jimmy attended Crossings Community Church and especially enjoyed his time with his “Keenagers” group every week.

He is preceded in death by his parents, Floyd and Dorris, by his wife of 38 years, Joyce, by his younger brother, Michael Joe, and by his second wife, Marty Park.

Jimmy is survived by his daughter, Melissa Boese, of Piedmont, and by his son Robert Ring, of Edmond, and his wife Genifer; by his grandchildren Brett Alan Boese, Matthew James Ring, Jarod James Boese and his wife Katrina, Blake William Ring, and Samuel Veach Ring; by his nieces and nephews Michel Ring, Erick Ring, Kathy Biggerstaff, Patrick Snider, and Leah Snider. Jimmy is also survived by Norma Bertrem, who gifted him with 13 years of love and friendship. 

Services will be held at Brown-Duggar Funeral Home in Perry, Oklahoma, on Saturday, December 2 at 2 pm, with a graveside service to follow in Red Rock, Oklahoma.
