Obituary of Daniel David Ingraham
Daniel "Dano" "Boone" David Ingraham, 31, a lifelong resident of Ilion, passed away Tuesday, July 31, 2012.
Born March 8, 1981, Dan was the son of Cathy Wildey Ingraham.
Dan was a 1999 graduate of Ilion High School where he was active in basketball and football.
At one time, Dan was employed at Robinson Bros. Appliances, Husted Concrete and Remington Arms. He recently became employed at Hale Mfg.
Dan had a magnetic personality that drew people to him with his ever-present smile and jokester attitude. He was such fun to be around. The word "cool" can be defined in two words: Dan Ingraham. Dan gave love in heaping quantities and he gave it unconditionally. He was quick to hug and had a big, contagious laugh. The world is a quieter, lonelier place without him.
Two years ago Dan was blessed with a beautiful son who was the light of his life. Dan loved being with Daniel, just hanging out, playing and laughing. He loved being a Dad. It is the goal of Dan's family and friends to keep his memory alive for Little Daniel.
A kind and loving son, father, brother, nephew and friend, Dan is survived by his adoring and devoted mother, Cathy Ingraham, his big brother, Joe Ingraham who Dan admired and looked up to so much and Joe's fianc, Jesse Llewellyn and their daughter, Dan's niece, Josie. His son, Daniel Brian Ingraham and Daniel's mother, Lindsay White and her daughter, Erin, who Dan loved like his own child. His god-children, Mercedes Sassone and Jeffrey Wildey. Dan was especially close to his Aunt Mary Tubia (Mrs. T.), his godfather, Uncle Jeff Wildey (UJ) and his lifelong best friend, party partner and cousin, Hollie Raux. He is also survived by his grandfather, Garrett Blake and many aunts, uncles, cousins and friends.
Dan was predeceased by his grandmother, Katherine Blake, his great grandmother, Helen LaPoint and his uncle and namesake, Daniel H. LaPoint.
