Trek Atlas Ingram (NPA)
4/11/11 - 6/21/12
Very sadly we pass along the news that little Trek Atlas Ingram has passed away due to the effects of Niemann-Pick Disease Type A (NPA). Trek traveled the world in his short life, venturing with his family from his first home in Hawaii to Thailand, Nicaragua, Japan and around the U.S.
Trek is survived by his parents, Jarrett and Chelsea Ingram, and two older brothers, Peyton and Conner, along with many other relatives and friends.
To read about the global adventures that filled Trek's life, visit the family's blog at Our Sonny Life. A celebration of Trek's life will be held on a Maui beach at noon on Saturday, June 30. For more information, visit the blog babytrekatlas.com.
Our heartfelt sympathy goes out to Trek's family and many friends around the globe.
