Timothy “Tim” Ingram

November 28, 1955 - July 14, 2021

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.

Tim is survived by the love of his life, his wife of 42 years, Pamela J. (Hollyday) Ingram; son, Chad Ingram (Kimberly); daughter, Courtney Anderson (John); grandchildren, Emily, Cole, and Jaxson; siblings, Michael Ingram (Karen) of Warwick, MD, Julie Leonard (Jeff) of New Castle, and Tammy Evans (Darrell) of Warwick, MD; and a host of nieces, nephews, and dear friends.

A visitation for family and friends will be held from 6 pm until 8pm on Tuesday, July 20, 2021 at Asbury United Methodist Church, 300 E. Basin Road, New Castle, DE. A second visitation will be held from 11 am until 12 pm at the Asbury United Methodist Church, where a funeral service will begin at 12 pm. Interment will be held privately.

In lieu of flowers, contributions may be made in Tim’s memory to the Wilmington Manor Fire Company, P.O. Box 645, New Castle, DE 19720; Delaware Humane Association, 701 A Street, Wilmington, DE 19801, Attn: Jeanette Hayes; or to Asbury United Methodist Church, 300 East Basin Road, New Castle, DE 19720.

  • What can i say about Chief Ingram, He was one of a kind, a brother Mason, fellow Fire Chief, and a all around great guy, never had to worry about were you stood with him because he was quick to tell you. When I worked at Fireboard and he was Fire Chief and station 28 button lite up you knew you were in trouble because you just messed up, but he was quick to tell you you did a good job also. As a Masonic brother he was a true Mason in every sense of the word, knew what it meant to be a mason. I had the honor of doing some Shield an Square master mason degrees with him, he was always happy and a smile on his face. Well brother Tim RIP at the celestial lodge above, I will miss you my friend. SO MOTE IT BE.

  • Tim & I were both junior members at Wilmington Manor around the same time. Sta. 32 was in its infancy, so crews were limited. But it was not uncommon to see the open cab Maxim pull up on a scene with Ray driving and Tim jumping of the back. To see that legacy continue to be passed on today is commendable. Tim has served his community well over the years and I wish to thank his family for sharing him with us. Our sympathy and prayers are with your family. Chief, I salute you and thank you !

  • Prayers to Tim’s family.
    We grew up so long ago it seems and met the best friends you could ever ask for. Most of us have remained friend’s throughout the year’s. Tim and Mike, Tammy and Julie were some of that group. Unfortunately our group is getting smaller. To Tim’s wife and children know he was loved by MANY. That big smile. RIP Dear Friend☺. Tell the old gang up there Hi. Rambleton Always🖒
