Rindge, NH — Ronald Bristol passed away peacefully on Oct. 22, 2021 at Roper Hospice Cottage in Mt. Pleasant, SC. Ron was 86 years old and was born on August 28th, 1935. He was married for 54 years to his wife Nancy (his college sweetheart) who predeceased him. He is survived by his children: Louise, Ronald, Tyler, and Emily, and their spouses and 12 grandchildren.

Ron was a graduate of the University of Connecticut. Upon graduation he worked at the Travelers Insurance Company in Hartford CT for 33 years. He achieved so much in his professional life that he was able to retire at the young age of 58. During his retirement, Ron enjoyed travelling with Nancy to over 30+countries as far away as Figi, volunteering. at the Atlanta Olympics, multiple Final Fours, and the US Open at Pinehurst. Locally in South Carolina he volunteered at Habitat for Humanity and VITA of Charleston. Ron enjoyed golfing, skiing and going to basketball games at the University of Connecticut and the College of Charleston.

Ron, "Bumpa" as his grandkids liked to call him, split his time between Rindge, NH and Isle of Palms, SC. He loved spending time at his lake house a.k.a. "Camp Bristol" with his family and having lunch cruises, trips to Kimball's for ice cream, fireworks on the 4thof July, Martini's and Cigars. Nothing gave him greater joy than spending time with his grandkids and teaching them the way of the world.

In Lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Roper Hospice Cottages of Mt.

Pleasant, SC.

My condolences Louise, Ronald, Tyler, and Emily. I have such fond memories of your mom and dad on Newport Avenue. Your parents brought so much life and character to our wonderful street. I last saw Ron and Nancy in Rindge maybe 18 years ago, not far from my wife's family in Peterborough. Our families (mom/Pat, Patty, Anne, me, John) condolences go to all of you and your kids.

Ron was a good friend and a good boss at The Travelers. Marilyn knew him from Newington High School. We enjoyed many parties in Ron and Nancy's West Hartford homes over the years. They hosted a retirement dinner party for me and another person who had worked for Ron. In retirement, a group of about 5 or 6 of us and our wives visited Ron and Nancy at their New Hampshire cottage every year for about 18 years. After Nancy passed away, we met Ron for lunch in Keene every summer while we were in New Hampshire. The last time was on August 5 of this year. Our sympathy to Louise, Emily, Ron, Tyler, and all Ron's grandchildren. We will miss him.
