Melvin Wayne Ringer Obituary
Melvin Wayne Ringer

Norfolk - Melvin "Wayne" Ringer, 63, died suddenly and unexpectedly at his home in Norfolk, VA on Monday morning, April 18, 2016. For 15 years, Wayne had worked in the Norfolk City Attorney's office, serving the last 10 years as Chief Deputy City Attorney. Wayne graduated from Washington and Lee Law School in 1981 with a Juris Doctor degree. For 35 years, he worked as a litigator in Virginia's courts.

Wayne earned a reputation as one of the area's most honest and ethical attorneys in the Hampton Roads area. In addition to being an accomplished attorney, he was also a man of phenomenal intellect, keen discernment, and one of the kindest hearts the world ever knew. He will be missed by all.

Wayne is survived by his wife, soul mate, and best friend, Rosemary, as well as two children, Ben Ringer and Morgan Ringer, and three stepchildren, Crystal Thornton (Chris), Anna Carr, and Corey Locke (Levi).

The family will receive friends at a visitation on Sunday afternoon from 3 until 5:00 p.m. in the Norfolk Chapel of H. D. Oliver Funeral Apts. A memorial service will be conducted on Monday morning at 11:00 a.m. in First Presbyterian Church of Norfolk with Reverends James Wood and Valena Hoy officiating. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to First Presbyterian Church, 820 Colonial Ave., Norfolk, VA, 23507. Online condolences may be offered to the family through www.hdoliver.com.
