Ronnie Ingram Obituary

Ronnie Ray Ingram, 74, of Salisbury, entered into God’s Kingdom on February 5th, 2024.

He was born December 20, 1949, to George and Vera Ingram. His parents raised him alongside his eight siblings, Judy Martin, Sonny Ingram, Norma Jean Thomason, Anita Marie Shepherd, Ricky Ingram, Tommy Ingram and Melinda Graham. Growing up, he had a close-knit family that instilled in him the values of love, compassion, and hard work. Throughout his life, he cherished his family above all else.

He met the love of his life, Phyllis and they were married for 56 years. Together they built a beautiful life and raised three daughters, Rhonda Pickett(Chris), Shelly Eller(Budd) and Dawn Ingram(Jason Irish). The joy of his life were his grandchildren, Dayna Outen, Ashley Livengood(Terry), Bradley Outen(Angel), Lindsey Davidson(Scott), Nathan Snider, Blake Ingram and Spencer Ingram, Riley Irish, and Jack Irish. He adored his great grandchildren, Anna Gobble, Addisyn Gobble, Oliver Livengood, Parker Livengood, Myles Livengood, Aubree Fite-Turner, Jace Outen, Logan Davidson, and Colten Davidson. He took great joy in watching all of the children grow and thrive.

He was a hard-working man that could work circles around most people. He knew from the time he was young that he wanted to make a living working on cars. He built his business from the ground up and took great pride in his work. A man with a simple taste of slacks and t-shirts, he focused on providing his family with the best life possible without worrying about himself. He enjoyed getting on the floor playing with his grandkids, taking care of his chickens and faithful dog, Hoss, watching westerns and working with his hands. Ronnie was a man of many stories. You could sit and listen to him talk all day.

He was a true believer in God and knew he was going to Heaven without a shadow of a doubt. He is walking the streets of gold with Jesus now. Ronnie was a truly great man, and his impact will be forever felt by all, but especially his family that love him dearly. He was a selfless man, and his passing has left an unfillable gap in the hearts of his loved ones. His ability to sacrifice, provide, support, forgive, and love will be forever engrained in all he knew.

There will be a visitation from 12:00-12:30 pm on Friday February 9, 2024, at Calvary Baptist Tabernacle, 3760 Stokes Ferry Rd, Salisbury, NC 28146.
