George Thomas Ingram was many things. A believer and follower of Christ, a husband, father, grandfather, and great grandfather. People knew him for many things, but his number one identity was a believer of God and Jesus Christ. He always did the best he could to be a model Christian and on Saturday, October 24, 2020, he went home to his heavenly home to be with the one true God. After being separated for three years, he is reunited with his late wife, Eva Ingram.
George possessed many traits, one being his generosity. He was always willing to help anyone in need and never thought twice about his decisions. He was also one to never know a stranger and if he did, it was not long until that person was no longer a stranger to him. He will be greatly missed by a multitude of people. George could probably be described as a quilt. He started as a patch and with everyone who entered his life, he sowed their patch to making his connections that continued throughout his life.
George was born on June 25, 1937 in Madison County, KY, the son of the late Charles and Lucy Brewer Ingram. He had retired from Carrollton Utilities and owned and operated Ingram Excavating. He was a faithful longtime member of the Carrollton Wesleyan Church.

(Roger) Nelson of Carrollton, KY, four grandchildren; Annie (Roy) Stafford of Ghent, KY, Cody Thomas Clifton of Bowling Green, KY, Seth (Amber) Nelson of Ghent, KY, and Logan Nelson of Carrollton, KY, two great grandchildren; Jacob Stafford of Ghent, KY, and Cain Thomas Nelson of Ghent, KY, two sister in-laws; Joan Tolliver of Carrollton, KY, and Lucy Ingram of Berea, KY, along with many friends and extended family members.
