Timothy “Tim” Ingram, age 65, of New Castle, DE, passed away on Wednesday, July 14, 2021.
Born in Wilmington, DE on November 28, 1955, he was a son of the late Raymond W. and Shirley (Conner) Ingram. Tim grew up in Rambleton Acres and Hares Corner. He was a graduate of William Penn High School, class of 1974. Tim had more jobs than one could count. Most notably, he worked for Ray Honey’s Garbage Service, Criscone’s Gulf Station at Hares Corner, Hoy’s Penn Jersey, Atlantic Aviation, Wm. M. Young Lumber Co., and Grubb Lumber Co.
Tim joined the Wilmington Manor Fire Co. in 1970 as a second generation following his father’s footsteps. He held the ranks of every operational leadership position as well as Board of Director and Chairman of the Board. Tim was also Fire Chief for several years. He was bestowed the honor of being elected to the position of Fire Chief Emeritus. He was a 50-year Life Active member, receiving that honor in 2020. He received many citations and commendations throughout his years of service. Tim was also a longtime member of the Christiana Fire Co. and remained active on and off for many years.
Tim was a longtime member of the Asbury United Methodist Church in New Castle, where he was currently serving as Chairman of the Board of Trustees. He was a Master Mason and a proud member of the High Noon Lodge No. 38 of Newport where he currently held the office of Secretary. He was also a member of the Shield & Square Club of Delaware, as well as Treasurer of the Daylight Chapter.
In 2019, Tim received a Gift of Life donation, from a most gracious and loving family. This gift was life changing, and inspired Tim and family to promote and educate others on the Gift of Life process.
Tim loved bluegrass and country music, his beloved pets, tinkering around in his workshop, and above all, spending time with his family, especially at his beach home. He cherished his friendships with countless people throughout his life.
