Default My good friend Chuck Ingram

It is with great sadness I share the news that Chuck Ingram is very ill. He was recently diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. A message from his family today told me the cancer has spread to his liver and lungs. He is on palliative care as they try to keep him comfortable.

Chuck has been an active member of several Sunbeam clubs for many years. His generosity and expertise are well known. A photo of Chuck with his Lister is below.

My heart is very heavy. Pete

I'm so sorry to hear the news. I met Chuck at the first SUNI, and a few times since, and kept in touch mainly by email. Last time was in late Fall when he told me he was working on his son's 53 Meteor, and was planning on doing work on the Lister tribute Tiger this winter. He is a real grassroots car guy, always willing to try a new idea. My thoughts and prayers are with him, Ollie, and the rest of the family.

Here's a couple of pictures I have of his V8 Alpine, with trailer, and his Lister tribute

Its really sad to hear of Chuck's condition, he was a great member of the global sunbeam community, and more importantly a great guy and obviously devoted family man. He turned unfortunate circumstances in his own life into positive lessons for others.

I will miss his emails, sage advice, his support and friendship.

I hope ollie and the grandchildren take comfort in how much he meant to so many others. A good sunbeamer and a great guy.
