Jeffrey Ring of Rochester, NY passed away peacefully on Tuesday April 30 at his home in Brighton. Jeff was 75 years old. In 1965, Jeff married Judy Jacobson of Buffalo, NY. Together they had two children and lived a very full life. A unique and wonderful soul, Jeff was very kind, loving, helpful, and had an amazing sense of humor.

He will be greatly missed.
