Andrew C. Ingraham Jr.

Andrew Clark Ingraham Jr., who was the East Hampton Town attorney in the early 1980s and maintained a law practice here for many years, died of cancer after a long illness on April 5, in Beaufort, S.C. He was 71.

Mr. Ingraham, a skilled athlete, excelled at golf, fishing, sailing, and more. He took up skiing in his mid-40s with his children and quickly advanced to the expert slopes. He was proud of the paddle tennis championships he won at the Maidstone Club with his friend Kevin Graham, and also had fond memories of playing ice hockey at prep school, said his daughter, Erin Rogus.

Ms. Rogus, who lives in Nashville, and her brother, Andrew Ingraham III of Brooklyn, wrote that their father was “a loving and devoted father who found joy and happiness in his children.” He had been looking forward to becoming a grandfather in the fall, his daughter said.

His marriage to their mother, the former Kathleen Bradshaw, who lives in East Hampton, ended in divorce. Fifteen years ago Mr. Ingraham met Danielle Wagenhauser of East Hampton. They were eventually married. She survives. His only sibling, a sister, Kitty Arsenault, died in 2011.

Mr. Ingraham was born in New Canaan, Conn., to Andrew Ingraham and the former Carol Narten, and grew up there, attending the New Canaan Country School before graduating from Phillips Exeter Academy in New Hampshire. In 1968, following his graduation from St. Lawrence University, he served in the Army stateside for two years.

With a 1973 law degree from George Washington University Law School in hand, he worked for two years for the Legal Aid Society in Brooklyn, then moved to East Hampton and started his own practice, living first on West End Road, then on Georgica Road. He practiced law here until 2003, when he and Ms. Wagenhauser moved to West Bath, Me., where he did a lot of fishing with a faithful companion, his golden retriever Tucker. Her father owned golden retrievers for 40 years, Ms. Rogus said, and they were a great love of his. The Ingrahams moved to Beaufort in 2015.

The family will hold a memorial service in the Parish Hall of St. Luke’s Episcopal Church in East Hampton on May 20 at 2:30 p.m. All who wish to remember Mr. Ingraham, whom friends called Sandy, will be welcomed. His ashes will be buried at Fort Hill Cemetery in Montauk.

Memorial donations have been suggested for Honor Canines for Veterans, P.O. Box 77108, Charlotte, N.C. 28271.

Update: The memorial service for Andrew Clark Ingraham Jr. will be held at 2:30 p.m., not 2 p.m., on May 20.
