Yesterday afternoon my Dad, Mike Ingram passed away. To many he was a historian who made it his mission to put Northampton on the map. He dedicated over a decade of his life to the preservation of this town's history. I was fortunate enough to be able to contact him whenever I wanted and run any historical queries by him. Whenever I had a question or a new historical interest he always knew something. If it was a topic he specialised in, especially Northampton history, he could go on for hours. Hours I would spend intently listening. He had a way with talking about history. His passion for it was so evident. He was a son and a brother, a friend to many across our town. To me and my sister he was our Dad. He truly was the best Dad we could've ever asked for. He was the kindest person I've ever had the pleasure of knowing, full of understanding and good advice even if I didn't always follow it. It pains me that I only got to spend 21 years of my life with him. With this Gofundme I hope to give my Dad the send off he deserves, paying for his funeral expenses and helping our family. Anything you can give would be a huge help.
