  1. To all of the Ingram Family, I am sending my condolences to all of you. Although many many years have passed since I last saw Jerry, I have only the fondest memories of him while we were classmates together at Loyola Marymount. I am thankful to our dear friend Ray Ramirez for contacting me to let me know of the loss. Jerry’s big smile and fun loving nature will always be what I will remember. I am sorry for your loss. Best Regards, Rena Jordan

  2. Dear Ingram Family, I am so sorry to hear that Jerry has passed away. I have countless wonderful memories of Jerry and the rest of the gang that I grew up with in Hawthorne. Jerry always had a smile on his face and never a harsh word for anyone. We loved to surf together – he sure loved the beach. He was a real friend. My heart goes out to all of his family. He will be missed.

  3. Thank you Jerry for being one of the best friends my daughter ever had. The love you gave my graddaughter that you loving called “Scooter” was un-conditional. There will always be a vacant place in our hearts that only you could fill. We will miss you, each and every day. Catch a big wave and ride it, may it never end. Keep a place for me in heaven you will know me by the Red Rose in my mouth!!!!!

  4. To the Ingram family and friends The news of Jerry’s passing came with shock and sadness. It’s been years since I last saw Jerry. We spent many early mornings before school doing what we loved best, what brought us together in the first place,surfing. I remember one particular halloween morning of 1974. The water and air were so cold that when we got out we couldn’t even get our wetsuits off. We tried to help each other, but our hands were so cold we couldn’t hold on. We were going to be late for school but all we could do was lie on the parking lot at 26th street and laugh until we cried. That’s how I remember Jerry, always a big smile and enjoying life. I’m really going to miss him. Until we ride again. Randy
