Robert “Rob” Jeffrey Ingstad, 51, was born on November 2, 1970, in Pierre, SD to Robert Edward Jr. and Janice Ingstad. On August 15, 2022, he passed away unexpectedly in Valley City, ND. Rob worked in the radio broadcasting industry for over 35 years. A third-generation radio broadcaster, Rob learned the business from his father, Bob, and uncles, Tom and Jim.

He was also grateful to work alongside his uncle, Jim, brother, Todd, and cousin, Tor.

On July 26th, 1996, Rob married the love of his life, Stacy Birchem. Two short years later, they had their first daughter Abby, followed by another daughter, Reagan, a son, Robert Jackson “Jack”, and their youngest daughter, Olivia.
