June 12, 1926 - December 23, 2019
Ingimar leaves to mourn his loving wife Mae of 67 years; his children, Wesley (Debbie), Bradley (Diane), Morley (Roslyn), and Corrina; his sister Emily; sisters-in-law, Ethel and Colleen; seven grandchildren; and eight great-grandchildren.
He was predeceased by his son Gerald; his parents, Valdimar and Ingibjorg; sisters, Solla, Margaret, Kristin; brothers, Barney, Marino, Lawrence and infant brother Marino Sigvaldi.
Ingi was born and grew up on the family farm at Framnesi in Geysir. He attended school in Geysir and Arborg. He then received his Diploma in Agriculture at the University of Manitoba and returned to the family farm. Upon the death of his father Valdimar in 1955, Ingi also took over his father's insurance business and continued to develop it along with his sons, Morley and Wesley, until his retirement. He also served on many boards in the community. Ingi was quiet, kind and caring. Family meant everything to him. He always took a great interest in what his grandchildren were doing. He loved the outdoors and could be seen walking in all kinds of weather. He enjoyed fishing, hunting, golfing and curling with family and friends. When he wasn't outside he would be in his favourite chair, reading.
Ingi will be lovingly remembered and greatly missed. The family would like to extend a thank you to the doctors, nurses and staff for his care and to those who sent cards, brought food and the many phone calls. They were very much appreciated.
A private family memorial will be held at a later date.
