Lynn F. Ring

   Lynn F. Ring, 76, of Langdon, ND, passed away Friday, December 25, 2020, at Sanford Medical Center in Fargo, ND.

   Llewellyn Fred Ring was born July 27, 1944, in Langdon, ND, to Fred and Alice (Krueger) Ring. He grew up in the Dresden area and graduated from Langdon High School. Lynn attended North Dakota State University where he received his Bachelor’s Degree in Ag Economics. He was then drafted into the U.S. Army and served in Germany during the Vietnam War. After his discharge from the service, he returned to Fargo.

   On March 22, 1969, he married Sharon Welsh in Langdon, ND. After their marriage, they lived in Fargo where Lynn worked for Fargo National Bank. They later returned home to Langdon and the family farm.  In 2007, they were awarded the Outstanding Agriculturist Award for Cavalier County.  They retired in 2014 after 40 years of farming.

   For many years, Lynn served as treasurer of Redeemer Lutheran Church and as a Waterloo Township officer.  Lynn was a lifelong fan of NDSU football, enjoyed curling, and was an avid reader. He was “Grandpa from the Farm” and loved spending time with his grandchildren.

   He is survived by his wife, Sharon; children: Tami (Joel) Lies of Fargo, ND, and Tyler (Rebecca) Ring of Delano, MN; grandchildren: Sam and Ellie Lies, Ethan, Katelyn, and Madison Ring; and his sisters: Patricia (Larry) Link of Ontario, OR, Marcia (Cale) Shipman of Charleston, SC, and Marlene Ring of Boerne, TX.  Preceding him in death were his parents.

   A public visitation will be held on Sunday, January 3, 2021, from 3:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. at the Brooks Funeral Home in Langdon, ND. A private service will be held Monday, January 4,, 2021, at Redeemer Lutheran Church in Langdon with a celebration of life gathering to be planned for a later date. Masks and social distancing are required.

   In lieu of flowers, memorials are preferred to the Cavalier County Cancer Crusaders (C/O Mickie Cain, 210 8th Ave., Langdon, ND 58249), Redeemer Lutheran Church of Langdon, or a charity of the donor’s choice.

I so fondly remember my high school days in Langdon--and I remember Lennie as one of very best friends. We always were seated in the assembly room together because of the R at the beginning of our last names. And we shared so many experiences and fun times. I am SO glad we had that time at Dick Crockett's cabin 3 summers ago to be together and remember those good years.
I send my sympathy to Sharon and family. He was a great guy and I am sure you know that. Cherish your memories.

My memories include classes, AGR, Army, Germany, lending, Agriclure and a few brews along the way.

So happy that I stopped by the farm in the summer of 2019. Enjoyed my visit with Sharon and Lynn.
I have wonderful memories of Christmas Day in our young years at Grandpa Henrys house. All nine cousins would head upstairs and play games. We invited our Aunt (nickname Dizz) to play games but it ended up a game of teasing Dizz. She loved the attention. Lynn always won the teasing contest.

I knew Lynn through my work at FSA. He truly was one of the nicest guys you could meet who loved his family, friends, and farming. I am so sorry for your loss.
