Pierce Wayne Ingle

 Pierce Wayne Ingle, beloved husband father, brother and Marine Corps veteran, passed away peacefully at his home in Willits, California on January 31, 2024. He was born on November 25, 1947 in Ukiah, California to his proud father Pierce Ingle and loving mother Vina Mae.

Wayne, as he was affectionately known to his friends and family, led a remarkable life filled with love, dedication, and adventure.

His commitment to duty was recognized with the Combat Action Ribbon, Navy Unit Commendation Medal, National Defense Medal, Vietnamese Service Medal, and Vietnamese Campaign Medal. Wayne's selflessness and bravery will forever be remembered by those who knew him.

Outside of his professional and military life, Wayne indulged in various hobbies and interests that brought him immense joy. He was an avid abalone diver and had mastered this challenging skill over the years. Hunting, fishing, and gardening were also among his favorite pastimes. Wayne's green thumb was legendary among family and friends; he took great delight in growing enormous onions that would leave everyone in awe.

Above all else, Wayne cherished his family. He devoted himself wholeheartedly to his wife Suzen of 25 years and their children: Lea (Rowdy),  Justin (Amy), Ryan (kelsey), mother Vina Mae, sister Belinda and in the grandperfects.... ,Garren (Heylee), Alastair, Abel, Racer, Chloe, Cameron, and great grandson Liam.
