TRAVERSE CITY — John Ernest Ingram, 72, of Traverse City, passed away on Thursday, Dec. 27, 2012, at Munson Medical Center, with his sister at his side. John was born on Feb. 26, 1940, in Wyandotte, to the late John Thomas and Helen Rhoda Jean (Stickney) Ingram.

John honorably served our country in the United States Air Force. After his time in the service he went to work for Ford Motor Company as a millwright.

John enjoyed camping and especially loved living out of his motor home for many years.

They held a very special place in his heart.
