Wayne L. Ingram

Wayne L. Ingram, age 83, of Shelby, passed away peacefully and unexpectedly in his sleep on Sunday, December 31, 2023 at his home.

Wayne was born June 25, 1940 in Shelby to the late G. Ray and Eileen (Henry) Ingram. A 1958 graduate of Shelby High School, Wayne then attended The Ohio State University.

He enjoyed visiting and playing with his 6 great grandchildren: Emmalyn, Caden, Barrett, Blaine, Olivia, and Kane. Also surviving are his siblings: Cindy (Howard) Gordon, Stan (Darlene) Ingram, Bonnie Hall, Gloria Turner, and Kathy (Bill) Morton; and numerous nieces, nephews, other relatives, and friends.
