Harold Benton Ingram
Gallman - Harold Benton Ingram, 71, went to his eternal home on Wednesday February 17, 2021 at St. Dominic Hospital. Services will be held on Tuesday February 23 at 11:00 am with visitation beginning at 9:00 am all at The Way Church located at 498 Northshore Pkwy, Brandon, MS 39047.
Mr. Ingram was born in Jackson November 2, 1949, the son of the late Kyle and Oletta Ingram. He graduated from Mississippi State University where he received his masters in business which led to starting his own business. After 13 years working in data programming, he started PerforMax Medical Management in 1987. He earned many awards both nationally and locally for his outstanding work in medical management.
His love of God was evident as he served as youth pastor, Sunday school teacher and superintendent at Leavell Woods and Lakeshore churches. He was also instrumental in founding Restoration Church now called the Way Church. His faithfulness towards God was seen in his profound love which allowed him to impact the lives of many people both young and old. His pastimes included fishing, gardening and going to Hartfield Academy basketball games where he loved to coach from the side lines.
He is survived by his wife of nearly 50 years, DiAnn Whyte Ingram; his daughter, Jennifer Ingram Heindl and her husband Michael; his two sons, Benton Ingram and his wife Nycole; and Carlton Ingram; the loves of his life, seven grandchildren, Taryn, Eli, Harrison, Gabbie, Nicholas, Ruel and Ava Grace; and his great grandson, Jayson. He is also survived by one brother, James Ingram and his wife Sandra and many other family members.
Harold's youthful spirit and infectious smile will be greatly missed but we rejoice knowing he is with his greatest love, Jesus Christ. In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions in his memory may be made to Hartfield Academy 1240 Luckney Road, Flowood, MS 39232.
