Robert Conrad Ingold
Apr 22, 1961 – Sep 14, 2017
Robert Conrad Ingold entered life April 22, 1961 in Canandaigua, NY as the firstborn child of Ralph Conrad Ingold and Jean Agnes Konz. He passed away on Sept. 14, 2017 following an extended battle with brain cancer. He was diagnosed with glioblastoma in Aug 2011 with a prognosis of only 13 months to live. He astonished his medical care team by living six years. Bob gratefully recognized he was given a gift of time to enjoy seeing his family mature and grow.
Bob was preceded in death by both of his parents. He is survived by his wife Lynda, his five children: Bradley (Claire) Simpson, Shannon (Scott) Miano, Gregory (Amy) Simpson, Grant (Genesis) Ingold, and MaKenna (Bryce) Olson; his six grandchildren: Blake, Rowan and Archer Simpson, Luke Miano, and Porter and Brylee Olson. Brylee was born just 4 hours after Bob’s passing. He is also survived by his three loyal and helpful sisters: Virginia (Lee) Riggall, Constance (Bert) Ferris, and Stephanie (David) Burke as well as many nieces and nephews.
Bob spent virtually his entire life in the Wayne and Monroe counties area. He graduated from the Pal-Mac High School in 1979 having been designated the best dressed senior. He enjoyed a successful career as a project manager with EDS, Hewlett-Packard, and Care Stream and completed a BS degree from SUNY Empire while recuperating from his first brain cancer surgery.
Bob married Kristie Lynn Guthrie in 1987. Their marriage was blessed with two children Grant and MaKenna. In 2001 Bob married his former high school sweetheart, Lynda Joy Dallon Simpson, adding her three children, Bradley, Shannon and Gregory, to his household. The integration of these siblings was wonderful and they have remained close and supportive of one another.
Throughout his life Bob has been a devoted and enthusiastic member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. As a young adult he served two years as a full-time missionary in the California Sacramento Mission. As a mature adult he gave many years of service and leadership in the Palmyra Ward. His cheerful and outgoing nature created many friendships everywhere he went whether at school, work, church or even the cancer treatment center. His roaring laugh was often heard throughout his own home.
Bob loved music of all kinds, except country! He was also an avid sports fan with a particular loyalty to Syracuse University, the Buffalo Bills and the Buffalo Sabres.
Among his other distinctions, Bob collected quite a list of nicknames bestowed by his children and grandchildren. He will be loved and remembered as “Bobby”, “Bobert”, “B-O-B”, “ Bobeeeeh”, and “Grandpa Ya-Ya”.
