February 3, 1928 – March 28, 2015

On a beautiful and chilly spring afternoon, surrounded by family and friends and in his beloved Craig County, Keith Otis Ring transitioned from his journey on earth to his heavenly home.

He will be greatly missed by his wife Missy Ring, daughter Bettina Ring and her partner Paula Johnson of Charlottesville, caring mother-in-law Una "Lake" Drummond, brother-in-law Jeff Drummond, sister-in-law Stephanie and her husband Jeff Byer, all of New Castle. He is also survived by a special sister-in-law, Porty "Toots" Ring, numerous nieces and nephews, special friends Karen Randle and Cheryl Setzer and Ken and Reese Wood, along with the Dudding family and his extended family at Crossroads Christian Church.

Born on February 3, 1928 in Craig County, Keith was preceded in death by his parents and three brothers and four sisters. Keith proudly served in the United States Navy during World War II, followed by a life-long career as an electrician. Keith had a deep love of the land, people, nature, animals and music. He will be remembered most for his zest for life, his humility and his great sense of humor.

The family will receive friends Tuesday, March 31 from 6 to 8 p.m. at Paitsel Funeral Home in New Castle. A celebration of Keith's life will take place on Wednesday, April 1, at 11 a.m. at Crossroads Christian Church with Pastors Cody Rader and Gary Burch officiating. Burial with full military honors will follow at West View Cemetery.

The family would also like to provide a special thanks to the staff of Lewis Gale Hospital and Good Samaritan Hospice, for the care and comfort they provided Keith in his final days.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Crossroads Christian Church 21892 Craigs Creek Road and Fishes and Loaves of New Castle Christian Church, 713 Salem Ave., New Castle, VA 24127. Arrangements will be handled by Paitsel Funeral Home.
