Oscar Ingram Jr. aka Butch was the eldest son of Mr. Oscar Ingram Sr and Mary E. Ingram who both preceded him in death. His youngest sister, Deborah Ingram also passed before him. He leaves to cherish his memory the love of his life of twenty-one years, Lisa Murphy and her family. Two brothers, Ronnie Ingram and Jerome Ingram, two sisters Ophelia Williams and Mildred Ann Williams. Two daughters, Deloris Hampton and Arthea Ingram and son, Christopher Ingram. He had many nieces, nephews, grandchildren and great grandchildren and a host of friends and others who loved him. Oscar being the eldest boy had to help work and support his family so he went back to school in his later years. He enjoyed talking classes at SH Clarke night school. He also worked as a sandblaster at Vanwin Coating in Chesapeake, VA. But his main thing to do for 48 years was roofing. Most people know Butch the roofer across the U.S. He was a hands on kinda guy, helped with siding, carpentry or whatever. Loved to cut his own grass, was a great swimmer and never procrastinated. He did things right away. When he did wind down, he enjoyed playing cards and talking trash. He often told stories of his strength during his younger days when he lifted cars and cable rolls just to show his power. Oscar was a member of Calvary Baptist Church on Gust Ln in Chesapeake, VA were he gave his life to Christ years ago. He prayer most mornings and thanked God for each new day. He was a helpful, caring person to many. He said at times even when we were in need, he'd still put cash in the charity bucket because we'd be blessed for it. If ever he needed to apologize, he'd do so sincerely. Oscar loved being around family and friends, eating and talking and laughing. He liked old school gospel and R&B music. He will be missed by many. Thanks to all who prayed and reached out to our families in our time of sorrow. God bless you all.
