Life Story for Richard Ingram

Richard Ingram was born in Quebec City on September 11, 1940. He moved with his parents, Ken and Grace Ingram to Highland Creek, a little village on the eastern outskirts of Toronto, when he was a young boy. There he enjoyed the freedom of being outside with nature as it was quite rural at the time. He lived just down the street from his maternal grandparents, Richard & Mary Barrett.
He became involved in Scouting; eventually becoming a Queen’s Scout & continuing in a leadership role. His skills in camping, knot tying & all things outdoors grew & blossomed there. He was selected to attend a scout jamboree in England when he was only seventeen.
He attended West Hill Collegiate where he again took on a leadership role as president of the student council.
Rich and Heather met in Haliburton when they both had summer jobs at resorts. He was 18 & she was 17 & they were smitten from the start. They were married 3 years later. As an only child Rich instantly became a welcome & comfortable part of Heather’s big family. Rich was so proud of his three daughters, Janice, Nancy and Mary. He referred to them as his hat trick. Rich & Heather had 55 years of happy marriage together. They were true partners.
Rich spent many years in the camping goods and commercial fishing supply business, several of them as president of John Leckie Ltd. When that business was taken over & eventually closed he then worked as Sales & Marketing Director in the power tool business. That suited him very well as he was a talented woodworker & all around handyman. Rich volunteered as president of the Wood Lake Cottagers’ Association, regatta chair & sailing commodore .
Rich and Heather retired to Bracebridge in 2007. It was a great move for both of them. It was closer to his favourite place, the cottage on Wood Lake. Fabulous new friends were found in Probus & the woodworking & dining in groups. He served two terms as special events chair for Probus Club of Central Muskoka.
The great outdoors was always Rich’s love. He was very knowledgeable when it came to birds, bugs & all of nature’s creatures. He loved to build & to putter.
This kind & gentle man will be missed by his wife, Heather and his three daughters Janice, Nancy & Mary as well as his son in law Scott Dale & his beloved grandchildren, Samantha, Taylor & Ryan Dale.
