2003 George Ringer

George M. Ringer

Ringer was born Jan. 7, 1942, to Raymond G. and Opal M. Mullin Ringer. He grew up on a farm north of Camden in Jackson Township and is the fifth generation to farm in Carroll County on both sides of his family. He graduated from Camden High School in 1960, attended Butler University and graduated from Ball State University in 1965, with a degree in education. Ringer taught at Cowan High School, then Delphi High School.

He married Nancy Johnson in 1964 and they have two children, Debbie McFatridge of Indianapolis and David Ringer of Camden.

After graduation, Ringer began grain farming with his father. He operated a farrow to finish swine operation for 30 years and was unique in making his buildings and equipment operable for his operation. He helped bring his neighbor, Dan Shanks, into the agriculture community by involving him in his grain and swine operation. Ringer and the Shanks brothers, Jim and Dan, still farm together. He was also briefly involved in an Angus cattle operation with his uncle, Lewis Mullin.

Ringer has been a member of Farm Bureau, Liberty Township Advisory Board, the IUK Outreach Committee, Farmers Home Administration board and board of trustees for Delphi Community High School, where he served as president for many years. He has been a strong supporter of 4-H club work and is active in St. Peter’s Lutheran Church, where he has served in various capacities.

Ringer worked closely with the Carroll County Soil & Water Conservation District Committee to secure and maintain good drainage in his part of the county.
