HUNTSVILLE -- James (Snukey) L. Ringo, 80, left this earth to be with the Lord on February 13, 2010. He was born February 23, 1929 in Trinity County to Edward and Nancy Ringo. He is survived by Ollie B. Willson Ringo, loving wife of 57 years and one day, two sons and spouses, James and Janice Ringo and Billy and Kim Ringo of Huntsville, brother Robert Ringo and wife Vicki of Huntsville and brotherin- law and wife Gene and Gaynell Willson of Corrigan.

Ryan Ringo and wife Katy, Steven Ringo and wife Laura, Tamra DeLaTorre and husband Miguel, Elizabeth Hukill and husband Clint, Lindsey Ringo, Traci Ringo, Jared Hawthorne and Julea Thrailkill and husband Matt. He also witnessed the birth of six great-grandchildren. At a young age, Mr. Ringo left home and worked on the trains around Camp Ruby. He joined the Army in 1950. He was extremely proud of his troop, the 82nd Airborne. During that time he met Ms. Ollie, married and moved to San Jacinto City, where he began driving a truck. With the birth of his sons, he decided to stay home with his family and then shortly after, moved to Huntsville, Tx. He opened Ringo Tire in 1975 with his brother Robert and ran the business for 35+ years. He made for sure there was always a fresh cup of coffee for everyone who stopped by. Since that time he has worked the business, raised two sons and watched his family grow and prosper. He believed that going to work every day kept him a strong man and continued to work even when his health was beginning to decline. There were numerous extended family and friends along the way. He loved to hunt, tell stories of his years driving a truck and his time spent in the 82nd Airborne, work the barbecue trailer and spending time with his family. He was a member of Northside Baptist Church and was spiritually blessed by the Lord. PeePaw, Snukey or Mr. Ringo (whatever name you used) touched many lives and will be greatly missed by all. Services were held Wednesday, February 17, 2010 10:00 am at the Sam Houston Memorial Funeral Home Chapel. Intermittent followed at Mayes addition of Oakwood Cemetery.
