Obituary for Robert Lee Ging

Robert Lee Ging
October 13, 1942 – May 16, 2020
Robert (Bobby) Lee Ging, 77, a lifelong resident of Molino, passed away Saturday, May 16, 2020, after a very brief battle with lymphoma. Bobby was a graduate of Tate High School, Class of 1960. Shortly after graduation, he joined the U.S. Air Force and served for four years as an Air Policeman. In 2002, he retired from CSX Railroad after 37 years of service. He owned and operated Ging’s Heat and Air, Inc. for 40 years, his “hobby” side job where he served the north-end community with pride and excellence.
Bobby coached Little League baseball for a number of years and as President of the Molino Little League, he was instrumental, in obtaining the property from the county and the building of the Don Sutton Ballpark. He also served as President of the Board of Molino Utilities. He was a member and Past Master of the (Molino) West Florida Masonic Lodge #210. Bobby enjoyed bass fishing, primitive camping in the “Swamp of Sopchoppy” with his brothers, fish fries with friends and family, watching Florida Gator Football, reading on his Kindle, and solving crossword puzzles to “keep his mind sharp.”
He was preceded in death by his mother and father, Kathleen and John Ging, Sr., his beloved brother and sister-and-law, Johnny and Judy (McCurdy) Ging, and nephews Kenny and Jeff Powell.
He is survived by his wife of 54 years, Donna (Lee); daughters Christine Barrett and Tricia (Greg) Daniels; two grandchildren, PawPaw’s pride and joy, Tristan Barrett and Alyssa Daniels; brothers Jake (Bonnie) and Tony Ging; sisters Katherine Powell and Judy Ging; nieces and nephews, Bill, Jennifer, Jayson, Melanie and Melissa.
Visitation will be held Wednesday, May 20th at Faith Chapel North Funeral Home from at 12:00 Noon – 1:00 PM. A private funeral service will begin at 2:00 PM, officiated by Rev. Jimmy Cook. Burial will be at Aldersgate United Methodist Cemetery in Molino. Memorials may be made to Aldersgate Cemetery, P. O. Box 216, Molino, FL 32577. Due to the continued issues of COVID-19, there will be a restriction of 70 people in the funeral chapel at any given time during the visitation. Wearing a mask will be appreciated by the family.
Pallbearers will be Greg Daniels, Jayson Ging, Frankie Archer, Steve Spinks, Larry Spinks and Kevin Spinks.
Those who knew Bobby well know that he was a simple man who loved his Levi jeans. In his honor, please feel free to dress casual for the services. Jeans are appropriate dress or whatever you feel comfortable wearing. No shorts please.
The family would like to thank the nurses and staff of the Critical Care Unit of West Florida Hospital for their compassion and loving care of our beloved Bobby, aka PawPaw.
