My deepest sympathy goes out to the Wilhem Family on the passing of Uncle Ingo. I always respected Uncle Ingo as an absolute authority on all things to do with technology and the internet. He gave me some invaluable guidance over the years and helped me purchase my first ever computer in the late 90s. I even recall a very long time ago going on an Aviation History drive with him in Auckland visiting such places as Hobsonville and Mechanics Bay, site of the first flying boat services to Australia. My last visit before Uncle Ingo got sick I was privileged to see some incredible photos of him as a child and of his mother in Germany. Rest in Peace Uncle Ingo, I feel honoured to have had encountered you, your beautiful family and your mother along my life's journey.

My deepest sympathy on the passing of Ingo who was a knowledgeable instructor in the supply trade in the RNZAF and I was lucky to be a student of his for my Junior Supply Course. We later worked together in Defence HQ and he continued to mentor me in my early years as a Senior NCO. Thank you for your patience and knowledge which guided me on my career path.

My sincere condolences to Fran and the Wilhelm family on Ingo's passing.
I first met Ingo nearly 30 years ago when he joined the Supply team at NZAS.
It quickly became apparent that he had a gift for computers and technology in general. And he certainly helped not only me in that area but many others as well.
I last spoke to Ingo via Facebook in late July when he informed me he was battling cancer but being Ingo he was very philosophical about it. He said he would touch base "a bit further down the track" as he put it, after the visit of his sister from Germany. Sadly we never got to have that catchup but I am forever grateful to have known Ingo and for the knowledge he so willingly shared.
Rest in peace Ingo.

Helen and family - so sorry to read that your father had lost his battle with cancer. I am sure you will all have a lot of very precious memories to help you through this sad time and in the future. Thinking of you and your family.
