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.

They held a very special place in his heart.
