Not sure what to say?

Mr. Goldring gave me an opportunity when no one else would. I went on to do a PhD and become a professor, thanks to him.

Rollit I have so many fond memories
of our tennis period as a partner and
playing against you. You will always be remembered. Good Bye my friend

The world has lost one of its great ones. Rest In Peace, Rollit Goldring. You were truly an inspiration to many of us who taught and coached in Scarborough.

He was a wonderful teacher and very well respected by all the students during my term at WCCI (1960-1965). Loved his Zoology class. Along with Mr. Leyshon, Mr. Thomas, Mrs. Roth and lots of others, he shaped so many lives. RIP Mr. Goldring.

Many, many people will gather to celebrate the life of this man but many more who cannot be present will have known him as a teacher, a coach, an administrator and a mentor. No matter how busy, Rollit Goldring could find time to listen. In my time in the Scarborough Program Department and much later as doctoral student and a principal he was and remains for me a source of inspiration.

Mr. Goldring was my basketball coach at Winston Churchill and later became my principal. He was the best coach I ever had. Many lessons learned from his guidance. My greatest memory was going to a party at his home to celebrate our championship with the team. Another memory was when I got injured in a basketball game one Saturday afternoon while being his team mate and he personally took me to the hospital. He will be greatly missed. Rest in Peace Mr. Goldring.

My first memory of Rolly was when we played softball together at Birchcliff Public School. We were on the same team and took turns pitching. Rolly was the stronger thrower but a little wild. We did not win the championship.

A great leader,educator and sportsman....condolences and my deepest sympathy to Cathy and all of the Goldring family and in peace,Rolly....Mike Jovanov(Pickering,ON)
