James Raymond Rink

Army Veteran RINK James Raymond of Milford, age 74. Beloved husband of Aimee E. Rink (nee Ericson). Son of the late William Albert and Anna Mae House Rink. Brother of the late Joyce (Frank) Rayburn. Loving father of Chad (Sarah), Jason (Tisa), and Nathan (Kellie) Rink. Dear grandfather of Ethan, Jon (Elise), Adam, Aiden, Xander, Noah, Grayson, Liam, Emily Joy, and the late Eva Marie. Those who were closest to him would agree that you didn’t just meet Jim Rink…you experienced him. He was known for his sense of humor, love of Bluegrass music, and generosity toward his friends and family. He and Aimee frequently attended Bluegrass festivals in their iconic converted Greyhound Bus. He loved picking and jamming with the local Bluegrass community, who he saw as extended family. He also loved spending half of the year away from the Cincinnati winters, breathing the ocean air in Ft. Meyers, Florida. After he surrendered his life to Jesus Christ, he took that love for Bluegrass and started a band, 38:20. Through the band, Jim, along with Aimee and their bandmates, found his calling and satisfaction serving the Lord, giving his testimony, and ministering through music. Family will receive friends 10 am Tuesday, Aug. 24th until 12 Noon time of service at Crosspointe Baptist Church 4596 Bells Lane Cincinnati, OH 45244. Interment in Rest Haven Memorial Gardens. Memorials may be directed to the Ft. Meyers Salvation Army or to Crosspointe Baptist Church: Sam Judd Music Ministry.

From The Rink Family, Amelia, Ohio (Peggy, Heidi, Andy)

I remember visits as a child to stay with Uncle Bud and Aunt Mae and Jimmy at their country home in Milford. I was about 9 years old and remember the fun we had as children in those family visits. I can still hear the crickets from the open window where we slept upstairs. Jim always made me laugh with his wit and humor.

Ok. I see uncle Bud in that face! One sweet couple!

Sorry to hear of Jim's passing, he was a great friend from my days at G.E. He trained me how to process documents under Del Fritz at that time. He had a way of being humorous without cracking a smile. I had the pleasure of lunch with him a little over a year ago. We talked at length about our journey with God. He will be greatly missed, but he is playing music on the streets of gold today! John and Karen Leming

Heaven gained an angel when Jim went from his earthly home to his Heavenly home. He was ready to go and Heaven is sweeter with him there. I am comforted and assured we will be reunited some day. By His grace through faith, we will be delivered finally and forever from every affliction to live in His eternal presence.

I bought my Stelling mandolin from Jim, I doubt I'll ever play it again without thinking of him.

Many memories of Jim Always had something to say to make me laugh. What a mind and sense of humor. I will miss seeing him around. I have a minor surgery scheduled Tuesday Mourning. I will try to make the service if I get out in time.
