Henry H. Ingram, 96 of Ingalls passed away January 3, 2024. Born to Stokes and Nola Wise Ingram on September 7, 1927, he has outlived most of his family members including his wife Eulalia M. Ingram. They were married 45 years at the time of her death in 2000.  

He is survived by three daughters and two sons, a son-in-law, a daughter-in-law, one grandson and his wife and two stepsons.  He has one brother still living in his family of nine and two sisters-in-law.  Many nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends survive him as well.

He was a veteran who served in the latter part of WWII and saw action in the Philippines as a radio technician.  He utilized the GI bill to attend UNC-Chapel Hill where he received a Bachelor’s degree in history and later received a Master’s Degree in education from East Tennessee State University.  

A life long supporter of education,
