RING, Charles Simeon (abridged)

CHARLES SIMEON RING PASSES AT AGE OF 71 ~ A Pioneer Shoemaker Who Had One of The Most Delightful Backgrounds
Funeral services for Charles Simeon Ring, 71, former shoemaker, who died yesterday morning at his home, 307 Baltimore avenue, after an illness of four years, will be conducted Wednesday at 10 a. m. at the residence with Rev. Paul H. Gleichman officiating. Interment will be in Rose Hill Cemetery.  Surviving are his widow, the former Hannah B. Rice; three daughters, Mrs. Walter G. Smith, Cuyahoga, O,; Mrs, Lloyd W. Taylor, Akron, and Mrs. Llndley R. Taylor, this city; two brothers, Ellsworth Ring, Homestead, Pa: and John Ring, this city; two sisters, Mrs. Mary Coveney, Cleveland, and Mrs. Clara Ward, this city, and four grandchildren.  Mr. Ring conducted a shoemaker's shop for 40 years on Baltimore avenue.  His home is among the few unchanged places in that section.  He was struck by a car six years ago and never fully recovered from his injuries.  He owned a high-wheel bicycle, still in the possession of the family, which brought him gold and silver medals in the days of pioneer bicycle racing. The medals were lost when his shop burned several years ago. The wheel, still a family possession, was ridden in the recent Sesquicentennial parade.  It would seem that Mr. Ring could not have been other than individualistic when the story is told that his mother, a Gleichman, was born at sea in a sailing vessel, coming from Germany in a long torturous journey.  His father, Peter Ring, was born in Germany.  Mr. Ring at one time had a grocery store on Baltimore avenue, bulr he never quit being a shoemaker.  He loved his trade which to him was an art. He also dealt in antiques, avid as a coin collector he had few peers. A harpsichord is still a family possession.  "Sim" Ring, when twelve, took over his father's art in leather and he imbibed the finesse to create a fine boot or a side saddle. He labored for 50 years in his trade.
