Dr. Adrian “George” Ringer, age 86, of Newport, Rhode Island, formerly of Paget, Bermuda, passed away on June 13, 2021. He was the beloved husband of Paula (Oatway) Ringer.
George was born in Slough, England to the late George Kenneth and Kathleen Gertrude (Ripley) Ringer. He was educated at the University of Birmingham and later in Liverpool.
