He will be sadly missed by his wife, Erika, his partner of almost 50 years; daughter Renate (Ken Dobson) and son Gordon; grandchildren, Stephen and Katy. Ingold was born August 6, 1930, in Berlin, Germany. As a skilled tailor, we all benefited from his craftsmanship. Immigrating to Canada in 1956, he started his career with Varta Batteries. Opa loved the outdoors joining his children and grandchildren in many camping adventures. He enjoyed jazz and classical music, reading, and philosophy. Ingold was a wise, caring, calm presence in our lives, keeping his sense of humour even in tough times. Thank you to 3 South Grace Hospital staff for their kindness and care given to our papa. A private family service will take place at a later date. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Heart and Stroke Foundation, 200 – 6 Donald Street, Winnipeg, MB R3L 0K6.   As published in the Winnipeg Free Press on December 06, 2011
