Obituary for Benson Reed Ingram

Benson Reed Ingram, age 23, went to be with our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ on Saturday, July 22nd, 2017. He was born September, 24, 1993, in Jackson, to Reed and Janet Ingram. Ben was a lifelong resident of Madison County. He was a 2012 graduate of Madison Central High School and a 2016 graduate of the University of Mississippi where he was a student of English and Philosophy in the Sally McDonnell Barksdale Honor’s College. Ben had a brilliant wit and intellect. He was an avid reader who was passionate about learning and sharing his knowledge with others. Ben had a creative mind and enjoyed a broad range of art including literature, film, and music. He was a talented writer who crafted clever stories that were both suspenseful and would make you laugh out loud. Ben will be remembered for his dry sense of humor that could quickly bring an entire room to a roar of laughter. Ben fought anxiety and depression for many years which led him to take his own life. Ben’s family and friends hope that his passing brings greater awareness to suicide. We hope that people will honor him by reaching out with love and compassion to others that may be lonely or hurt. In spite of his own suffering, Ben was a great listener and a loyal friend.

Ben is survived by his parents, Reed and Janet; his twin brother Lee,his sister Liles, his grandmother Aline Spotts and numerous aunts, uncles and cousins. He is predeceased by his grandfather William M. Spotts and his grandparents O.C. and Claudia Ingram.
Visitation will be Wednesday July 26th from 5pm to 7pm. A celebration of his life will be held Thursday at 11:00am with visitation one hour prior to the service. All services will be held at Broadmoor Baptist Church in Madison. In lieu of flowers the family requests that memorials be made to Community Animal Rescue and Adoption (carams.org) in memory of Ben and in honor of his rescue dog and best friend, Charlotte.
