Deacon killed while preparing missions house
    August 23 2010 by wire reports

    MORGANTON — Joe Ingram, deacon chair of Catawba Valley Baptist Church in Morganton, died Aug. 17 when a trailer broke loose and ran over him in the yard of the church’s missions house.

    Ingram, 67, was preparing the house and yard for a missionary family to move into Aug. 20.

    Church pastor Mike Odom found Ingram underneath the trailer at the house, within sight of the church. Burke County Emergency Medical Services Lt. Jason Black said it was unclear how Ingram ended up under the trailer, which was approximately 40 feet downhill from a red pick-up truck.

    It had been filled with wood and yard debris, Black said.

    Ingram was chairman of deacons and a Sunday School teacher at Catawba Valley.

    “It’s going to be a terrible loss for the church and the people,” said fellow deacon Ralph Ballew.

    Ingram is survived by his wife of 43 years, Ann Pearson Ingram; three children and four grandchildren.

This is a sad story. I hope Joe's family knows that I am praying for them and many others will be as well as they read this report. I am thankful for the testimony that he was busy serving his church, these missionaries, and most importantly his Lord. Let's rejoice in the midst of sorrow that Joe's received a rich welcome into the presence of his King. May the Holy Spirit comfort you.
