David Michael Ingram

1991 – 2022

David Michael Ingram passed away suddenly at Cottage Hospital in Santa Barbara, CA on August 26, 2022, with his loving parents at his side.

Born in Ventura, California on February 10, 1991, David was the only child of Rachelle and John Ingram. He grew up with his family in Santa Barbara and enjoyed a happy childhood and loved to read books, play sports and play video games. He had fun “shooting hoops” at home and as a basketball team player at the YMCA, the Page Youth Center, and at UCSB summer basketball camp. David was a huge Dodger and Charger fan and enjoyed attending their games in LA with friends.

David had a special way with all animals, including the four rambunctious Irish Setters his family had at their home over the years. Hawaii was a special vacation spot for David and his family. He loved to fish and spend time snorkeling and swimming with his dad in Maui. Close to home, Goleta Beach was his favorite fishing spot and many an evening was spent on the pier fishing there with his close friends and even with mom on occasion.

David attended Foothill Elementary School, La Colina Junior High School, San Marcos High School and Santa Barbara City College. He was employed as a personal banker at various banks in the Santa Barbara and Goleta area and developed a good rapport with customers and colleagues alike. He was a quick study of the different bank operating systems and took pleasure showing new hires the procedures necessary for their success. David obtained his Notary Public license as an additional proficiency he could add to his banking employment skills. David also was employed for ten years by the Santa Barbara City Parking Division.

David is survived by his parents, and many loving aunts, uncles and cousins.

A celebration of David’s life will be scheduled at Goleta Beach. Donations may be made to Sanctuary Centers of Santa Barbara, 1136 De La Vina St., Santa Barbara, CA 93101, or to the Santa Barbara Rescue Mission, 535 E. Yanonali St., Santa Barbara, CA 93103.
