OBITUARIES >> 11-29-17


Charles Tyjuan Ingram, 53, passed away on Nov. 24 in Jacksonville.

He was born on Jan. 29, 1964, in Drew County to Charlie Ingram and Elizabeth Wright Ingram.

He grew up in Wilmar and graduated with honors from Wilmar High School. He attended College at the Ozarks, where he played basketball. Shortly thereafter, he joined the Air Force and then continued his college education, ultimately obtaining his master’s degree in human resource management at Park University.

Charles, also known as Chuck or Charlie, had such a dynamic personality and was loved by anyone who had the luck of meeting him.

Charles has been happily married to his wife, Jennifer, Ingram, for 16 years. They have three beautiful children, Aubree, Asayla and Cabrion. Nothing brought greater joy to him than spending time with his family. He enjoyed fishing, his fur babies, basketball, music and teaching.

Charles was a proud service member of 22 years and continued to serve the Air Force through the civil service following his retirement in 2009 as a master sergeant.

He received numerous awards and certificates. He enjoyed mentoring and spending time with his airmen and 1Charleys.

In this past year, he and his family became fierce warriors for ALS awareness and finding a cure. #TEAMINGRAM forever!

It always brought him great joy to see his GHC Family or “The Fellas.” They couldn’t resist the opportunity to throw down on some bones.

Charles leaves to cherish his memory his loving wife and soul mate, Jennifer; son Cabrion; daughters, Asayla and Aubree of Jacksonville; a sister, Janice and husband Fred White of Crossett; a brother, Marcus and wife Daphne Ingram of Wake Forest, N.C.; a brother, Demetrick “Bam” Ingram of Wilmar, countless beloved cousins, aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, in-laws, 1Charleys and GHC.

He was preceded in death by his grandparents, father and several close cousins.

Visitation will be held from 6 till 8 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 30 at Second Baptist Church, 1117 N. James St., Jacksonville, Ark. 72076.

The funeral with full military honors will be at 10 a.m. Friday, Dec. 1 at Second Baptist Church in Jacksonville. Burial will be at Chapel Hill Memorial Park, 1504 N. JP Wright Loop Road in Jacksonville.

We know that nothing will ever replace our Charles, Charlie, Chuck. However, we will seek comfort in the precious moments and memories we had the pleasure of sharing with him and know that he is now healed in Heaven. May he forever rest in peace with The Lord.
