Ringing friends around the world are greatly saddened by the passing of Dr. William E. Crouch III of Charleston, SC (husband of Dr. Rosalie Crouch, NAGCR Treasurer 2007-2010). Bill and Rosalie were among the earliest enthusiasts of change ringing in Charleston; they subsequently traveled widely to ring and to assist with the teaching of ringing, and became legendary hosts to ringers from far and near.
Rosalie and Bill were the founders of the biennial Ring Around Charleston, one of the most popular and broadly attended ringing events in North America.
A service is tentatively planned for Friday afternoon, August 21, in Charleston. Details will be posted here as available.
