In memory of
Robert D. Ferring
Mr. Robert Donald Ferring, age 77, of Dunnellon, Florida passed on March 19, 2019 in Lecanto, Florida. Robert was born on December 18, 1941 in Chicago, Illinois. He was the son of Donald William and Elaine (Wilson) Ferring. His father was a World War II Veteran and business owner of Hilton homes which provided veterans returning home from war with affordable housing. His mother was a woman of class, appreciation and etiquette. Robert was a US Navy Veteran and a business owner of Injun Joe's Cutlery. He was a member of the Dunnellon Masonic Lodge, a Chamber of Commerce member in Dunnellon, and the acting president of the Fifth Chapter Sober Motorcycle Club. He and his best friend Michael "Troll" Tusso spent countless hours riding motorcycles in the U.S. and other countries. He bred and raised Walker Ferring hounds and offered support to those struggling with addiction and alcoholism. He was the oldest brother of Donald Frank Ferring, James Neil Ferring, and William Paul Ferring. He was the father of Robert Donald Ferring, and grandfather of Lainie Mae Ferring, and Anna Mae Ferring. In the last summer of his life he was able to return to Iowa with his best friend Bill Horvath and eldest granddaughter. On this trip he returned to Guttenberg, Iowa where his family vacationed. He reminisced about flying planes with his father and helping his family make important business decisions. During this trip it was verbalized by local persons still living in Guttenberg that the Ferring family was remembered, loved and was one that cared for others. Robert was welcomed in Farley, Iowa by cousins Kate Kleeman, Mary Jo Diblasio, and Bill Kiernan where the 250 acre family farm was explored and tombstones dating back to the 1800s of Eva and Michael Ferring were marveled at. Robert will be missed by those whom he impacted. But now he has returned to a better place with his father, mother, and younger brother "Jimmy". He will be buried at Florida National Cemetery in Bushnell, Florida. Expressions of sympathy would be appreciated if taken in the form of memorial donations to any charity of persons donating of choice. Sign the guest book at www.chronicleonline.com.
