Don Ingram, of SV For Today
January 11, 2016
by Jody Aston, Editor 

Don Ingram first came to the Rio Dulce in 2009. He sailed in and out over the years and made many friends on the river. He and his wife, Linda Kersey, were making last-minute repairs before taking their boat, SV For Today, on a new adventure.

Don and His Beloved Goldie
Don had some health problems recently, and he went in a hospital in Guatemala City for treatment of an ulcer. The operation appeared to be successful, however, at 3:00 a.m. on January 6, he succumbed to a heart attack. Linda was with him and made the necessary arrangements. His body will be returned to the United States on Tuesday, January 12.

Don loved to tell stories and he had a lot of interesting ones to offer. He especially enjoyed telling of his childhood, being born to a young Native American woman, his time living in Russia, and stories about sailing and his life in the Armed Forces. He was proud of his service to his country, and will be honored with a military funeral.

Linda is in the United States, now, and will stay with family. We were happy to hear that she will return to the Rio Dulce in the near future. She said that boating and traveling were Don's passions. He was eager to get SV For Today out on the open sea, and Linda says she wants to fulfill that dream for him.

On behalf of the Rio Dulce community, the staff of Rio Dulce Chisme Vindicator extends our condolences and best wishes to Linda and Don's family and friends. Don will especially be missed at our International Pub Trivia Quiz games, as he was an ardent participator from when the games first started, several years ago.
