Funeral Scheduled for Former Delaware Gov. Ruth Ann Minner's Son

Posted: Updated:

MILFORD, Del.- A funeral is set for this week for the youngest son of former Delaware Gov. Ruth Ann Minner, who died after a crash Friday.

According to the Lofland Funeral Home, a viewing will be held for Gary Ingram, of Milford, at the Carlisle Fire Company Memorial Hall on Thursday, Sept. 29, from 6pm-9pm. Another viewing will be held the next day from noon to 1:30 p.m. with a funeral service to follow at 2 p.m.

According to Ingram's obituary, Ingram was a graduate of Milford High School and Kent County VoTech. He and his brother Wayne co-owned Roger Minner Wrecker Service, Inc. of Milford. Ingram was a member of the Cedarfield Ruritan of Milford and an Honorary Member of the Carlisle Fire Company. He volunteered with Milford Pop Warner and Milford Little League and was a supporter of the Southern Delaware Street Rod Association. He was also an active volunteer of the Democratic Party, according to his obituary.

Delaware State Police said Ingram was killed Friday after he crashed his tow truck on US 113, just south of Cicada Lane. Police said, or an unknown reason, Ingram's tow truck gradually traveled off the west edge of the roadway where the right side mirror and right corner of the flatbed hit a steel sign. Authorities said the truck then continued traveling southbound, eventually hitting a group of trees before stopping.

He was treated at the scene by Kent County Paramedics and then brought to the Milford Memorial Hospital where he was pronounced dead. He was 55 years old.

Ingram is survived by his wife, Cindy, his children Kristine Ingram of Milford, Brandon and Michelle Jump, of Richmond, VA, Emily Jump, of Milford, and Tony Pedrotti, of New York City; his mother Ruth Ann Minner, of Milford; his brothers Wayne and Phyllis Ingram, of Milford and Frank and Margaret Ingram, of Milford; his nieces and nephews Lisa and Jason Peel, of Milford, Wayne Ingram, Jr. and Linsey, of Milford, Michelle and Darren Decker, of Lexington, NC, Jared and Skye Ingram, of Dover and Michael and Garrett Casale, of Dagsboro;  his sister and brother-in-law Lisa and Michael Casale,of Dagsboro; and his father and mother-in-law Wilmer and Joan Long, of Selbyville, as well as, several great nieces and great nephews.

His family has offered no comment other than asking for privacy during this time as they grieve.

In lieu of flowers, the family suggests contributions to either the Carlisle Fire Company, P.O. Box 292, Milford, DE  19963; to the Houston Volunteer Fire Company, P.O. Box 122, Houston, DE  19954 or to the Cedarfield Ruritan, C/O Kenny Blessing, 1931 Bowman Road, Milford, DE 19963.
