  3. To the family you have my deepest sympathy he was a beautiful person I used to call him all the time and he will be miss

  4. Brother Leroy was such a good man…
    As a young man I marveled at his incredible work ethic on the job sites. Even in his 40″s, STRONG AS A BULL! Brother Leroy could outwork any man half his age and he always did it with a smile. He would sing and whistle all day long no matter how tough the work environment.
    As a young boy he always looked out for me on the jobsite too on top of all his other responsibilities. If I’d try and lift something too heavy, he’d run over and grab it and tell me that lifting something that heavy would hurt me later in life…There was a Humbleness about him rarely found in a man this mighty…
    Leroy faithfully worked for Taylor Brothers (Paul and Emory) Construction for Decades. Extraordinary Dependable he ALWAYS got to work before all the other masons ensuring everything was ready to go at 7am without fail everyday. Men like Leroy have no use for unions to protect their jobs…Only a fool would fire a Man so Hard Working, and Dependable as Brother Leroy…
    And I’ve heard my Dad say many times, “Lee is the Hardest Working Man he Ever Met!”
    Brother Leroy was also quite the Man off the jobsite. Always calling, visiting, and looking out for my Dad as he battled cancer for years.
    The passing of a Great Man like Leroy Ingram won’t make the Nightly News, but it should…
    Brother Leroy’s Life could teach EVERYONE that Life is what you make it. You can constantly complain? Or you can Whistle through Life’s toughest days with a pep in your step and the Goodness of Christ in your Heart…
    My Deepest Condolences to all his Family
    RIP Brother Leroy
