His father, William Brown Ingersoll, DDS, notably taught at the university in the School of Dentistry as a faculty member for 40 years. His father and mother were later treated at MedStar when he was diagnosed with colon cancer and she with pancreatic cancer. Since they both received exceptional care, Mr. Ingersoll and his wife jumped at the opportunity to support the new pavilion. As a result, one of the building's family lounges was named in his parents' honor. Mr. Ingersoll also made a substantial donation to his alma mater, Brigham Young University (BYU). Over a 40-year period, Mr. Ingersoll collected first edition copies of "Books of Mormon" in all published languages (151). Only two of such collections are known to exist. He donated this collection to the University rare books collection library.
As a contributor to his community, Mr. Ingersoll is active on the board of directors of the National Timesharing Council, a role he has held since 1981. He also devoted 35 years as a member of the national advisory committee of Inside Real Estate between 1985 and 2020. With respect to education, Mr. Ingersoll was instrumental on the board of directors at BYU between 1984 and 1987. He was also on the board of advisors at BYU's J. Ruben Clark Law School between 1987 and 1993 and subsequently served as chairman between 1991 and 1996. Among other involvements, Mr. Ingersoll was a member of the Garrison Presidential Commission.
Mr. Ingersoll studied at BYU, where he received a Bachelor of Science in 1964. Shortly thereafter, he completed a Doctor of Jurisprudence at The Catholic University of America in 1968.
