Marion Monroe "Marvin" Ringo, 82 was born July 4th, 1939 in Lillie, LA to William Monroe and Mabel Delane Busby Ringo. He traded his earthly life for his heavenly home on February 8, 2022, surrounded by his loving family. \r\n \r\nMarion is preceded in death by his father and mother, and brother Johnny Ringo. \r\n \r\nMarion is survived by his wife Linda Quimby Ringo of 61 1/2 years; daughter Debra Banks and husband Jerome; son Robert Ringo and wife Yanalynn; son Christopher Ringo and wife Ruby; son Aaron Ringo; grandchildren Susan Tyler and husband Nathan; Michael Griffith and wife Jessica; Alyssa Banks; Sean Ringo; Jason Ringo; Taylor Ringo; Bella Ringo; Teddy Ringo; Eric Ringo; and two great-grandchildren, Sadie Griffith and Carli Earbin; sister Sarah Frances Hodges; brother Bobby Ringo; brother Richard Ringo; sister Wanda Sue Hall, and numerous nieces and nephews. \r\n \r\nHe served in the US Army from 1958 to 1961, being honorably discharged on their 1st wedding anniversary. During his enlistment he distinguished himself and served with pride. \r\n \r\nMarion completed his Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering in 1969, and became a Registered Professional Engineer. Equipment he designed was aboard at least one NASA space shuttle flight. His name is on at least five US patents, and he was active in his engineering career until the middle of his illness in 2022. \r\n \r\nHe was a League City resident since 1969, when the family moved from Washington State when he accepted a position with General Electric near Johnson Space Center. \r\n \r\nMarion had a few hobbies over the years, including flying, "treasure hunting" with a metal detector, and reading the comics. He loved to read, and he loved to visit over a good cup of coffee. He loved a good clean movie, and if records were kept he would probably hold the world record for number of times having seen "The Parent Trap" with Hayley Mills. \r\n \r\nMarion was known for his devotion to God and to his family, and was actively involved in outreach through his church and to the community, making himself available to be of service to others in many endeavors. Many stories have been told of his passion, big-hearted generosity and devotion. His kindness, gentleness and sense of humor will be sorely missed. \r\n\r\nThe family will receive friends on Monday, February 28, 2022 from 6:00pm to 8:00pm at Pentecostals of Santa Fe, 12811 FM 1764, Santa Fe, TX 77510. Marion's Celebration of Life Service will follow on Tuesday, March 1, 2022 at 10:00am with Pastor Ben Taylor officiating. Interment will be at Houston National Cemetery, Houston, TX.
