Shawn Michael Ring

Marion, Va.

Shawn Michael Ring, age 44, passed away Monday, August 27, 2018 in Charlotte, N.C.

Shawn Ring was the kind of guy everybody loved. He was always smiling and seeing the best in everyone he came into contact with…and the list was long – Shawn never met a stranger. His genuine and compassionate way made him a friend to so many people on many different levels. When he wasn’t helping as a nurse or a friend, he enjoyed live music, especially the Black Crowes; and his newfound passion with his twin brother Matthew – volleyball. In fact, he loved volleyball so much, his friends in the Charlotte volleyball community have scheduled the Ring Memorial Volleyball Tournament, Saturday, September 8, 2018 at the Sandbox in Charlotte, N.C. His gentle way and fun-loving personality will be missed by so many people everywhere.

He was preceded in death by his grandmother, Carolyn Seabolt; and uncle, John Seabolt.

Shawn is survived by his twin brother, Matthew Ring and wife, Melanie of Charlotte, N.C.; sisters, Christine Ring of Hampton, Va. and Heather Evans of Rockford, Ill.; nephew, Christopher Ring; nieces, Rebekah Ring and Ambriana Evans; girlfriend, Kelly Confoy of Charlotte, N.C.; special family friends the Harris family and the Bodemer family.

The family will receive friends Friday, August 31, 2018 from 5 until 8 p.m. at Seaver-Brown Chapel.

Honorary Pallbearers will be Brian Walker, Chris Barr, Ed Sause, Bryan Vernon, Timothy Caldwell, John Kirk, Andy Kirk, Matt Anderson and Eric Albano.

In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to the Presbyterian Children's Home of the Highlands, P.O. Box 545, Wytheville, VA 24382.

Words cannot describe how sad I am to hear that Shawn was taken from us way too soon. Please accept my sincerest condolences and know that all of you will be in my thoughts and prayers as you go through this difficult time. The world definitely just got a little less bright without him in it.

My heart is with all you boys and Matt especially as you go through this hard time. A group of guys like no other. Shawn lit up a room when he came around and made an impression you'll never forget. Dont remember me with sadness, Dont remember me with tears, Remember all the laughter. Weve shared throughout the years. Now I am contented That my life it was worthwhile, Knowing that I passed along the way I made somebody smile. When you are walking down the street And youve got me on your mind, Im walking in your footsteps Only half a step behind So when tomorrow starts without me Dont think were far apart. For every time you think of me Im right Here in your heart

I met Shawn on numerous occasions thru his brother Matt. The first time I met Shawn it felt like I had known him forever. Taken way too soon, with so much left to give and share. We mourn his death yet we celebrate his life My thought, prayers and admiration for Shawn are shared with the family. May you find comfort in knowing he lived a life full of good will and happiness.

Shawn had an awe inspiring calmness and goodness about him . I am so sad he is no longer with us. I have such good memories of him at get togethers and Farmhouse days. He was such a remarkable good guy. Sincere condolences to Matthew, family and friends.
