BIG FAN OF JOHN.
October 8, 2012
I was of fan of his from General Hospital and I know he was an asset to the acting community. But my reason for posting is the obituary itself. It's simply fantastic. It makes us wish we had known not only Mr. Ingle but also his entire family personally. God bless you as you mourn.

John was my drama teacher at BHHS, beginning in 1965. To be sure, he was a force to be reckoned with: a man of boundless energy, wholly in charge, seemingly always sure of himself, and the ultimate decider of what was -- and wasn't -- good. It was wonderful to watch him cultivate kids who were serious about the arts, such as Joanna Hall, Helaine Lembeck, and Joel Pressman, and to hear Mr. Ingle talk about “kids of mine who are making it,” such as Richard Dreyfuss and Barbara Hershey. I also enjoyed watching him work with and encourage boys who hadn't acted or danced before. Even seeming clods from the football squad became graceful swans under his tutelage. The productions that I was a part of included the Mikado (G&S, 1885), The Madwoman of Chaillot (1943), and, if I'm not mistaken, The Rivals (Sheridan, 1775). (I remember "Mrs. Malaprop.") A pretty amazing repertoire by any teaching era's standards. My only regret is that I was too intimidated by Mr. Ingle -– believing that “inconsequentials” like me didn't matter to him -- to give him a hug and thank him before I evaporated into the mists of adulthood. PW, Class of '69.

John will be truly missed by all of us who loved him on General Hospital. I have watched the show for nearly 50 years and John was one of my all time favorites. My heart goes out to his family and friends and I will pray for you all.
