IWarren Ringlien  was playing paddleball on the tennis court/practice wall at the Northfield High School yesterday when two kids rode up on their bikes. One said “That’s our grandpa’s bench!” and were quite excited when I told them that I knew their grandpa. The plaque says “In memoriam, Warren Ringlien, 1932-2007, Friend of Tennis.”

The Northfield Tennis Association dedicated the bench on July 31, 2008.  Photos of the ceremony are posted on this page but they’re in a format that’s not easy to view so I’ve taken the liberty to add them here.

I blogged about Warren when he died in Nov. 2007. See his obit on Northfield.org.

One thought on “Warren Ringlien’s memorial bench”

  1. Hey, this is so cool. Warren used to come to ALL of the NDDC Forums. What a great guy, he was so engaged in so many areas of our community.

    I remember when I first chatted with him he told me that he built instruments. I asked him, “Guitars, basses, mandolins, lutes?”

    My misunderstanding seemed to amuse him as he patiently gave me a detailed explanation regarding his SCIENTIFIC instruments.
