Our beloved husband, father, brother, uncle, cousin, dear friend, and the best Grampy in the world, Cregg Foote Ingram (Gus), age 62, passed from this world October 24, 2004, at home with his family, following a courageous battle with a chronic illness. He was born in Lehi, Utah on August 31, 1942 to George Bigler and Lucille Foote Ingram. He grew up in Lehi, Utah. He joined the Army at the age of 17 and served for four years. While on a leave of absence, he came home to find the woman of his dreams, and married JoAnne Sullivan of Payson on June 30, 1962. He joined the UtahArmy National Guard in 1964, attended jump school at Ft. Bragg, NC, and became a Green Beret. He graduated from OCS as the Top Officer Candidate in 1968. He retired in 1985 from the First Special Forces Battalion, 19th Special Forces Group as a major, having served as Company Commander and in many other capacities. He received his bachelors and masters degrees from the University of Utah. He received his Doctorate of Education from the University of Kentucky and enjoyed a successful career as a professor in Educational Psychology at Brigham Young University until his retirement in 2002. Cregg had many opportunities to serve. He passionately served his country, a real patriot to the core. He gratefully served his community, two terms as a city council member and as Mayor of Elk Ridge. He faithfully served in many church callings including being a counselor in three different bishoprics, one being at BYU. Cregg was an avid sports fan, enjoying all BYU Sports and served as a Sports Psychologist to many BYU athletes. He was a Second Degree Black Belt in Tae Kwon Do. He loved running, hunting, camping, and just being in the great outdoors. You could usually see him running up and down every street and highway, hunting on any mountain, but mostly he loved standing in the middle of a stream, gracefully casting his fly rod. He is survived by his wife, JoAnne, four children, Jill (Chad) Dolbeare, Danielle S. (Dani Roo) Ingram, Erin Noelle Rasmussen, Matthew Cregg (Amy) Ingram, and two grandchildren, Ari Rasmussen, and Baylee Rose Rasmussen, the absolute joys of his life; one brother, Karl R. (Joan) Ingram; four sisters, Colleen Sizemore, Mary Jo Ingram, Cinda Ingram, Claudia Ingram; and many loving nieces, nephews, and other family members. He was preceded in death by his father, mother, and his brother, Sherman. The family wishes to give special thanks for all prayers and service given by all family, friends and neighbors. We also wish to thank the many doctors and nurses who attended Cregg throughout his illness. Cregg (Gus) will be forever remembered in the minds, hearts as the ultimate example of love, compassion, strength, service, encouragement, kindness, patriotism, leadership and most of all – love of God, family, country, the great outdoors and, of course, fishing. In lieu of flowers, the family suggests donations be made to the Ingram College Fund (Ingram Family Trust) c/o Zions Bank. Funeral services held Thursday, October 28, 2004 in the Payson South Stake Center, 711 South 600 East. Interment, Vine Bluff Cemetery, 1250 North 400 East, Nephi, Utah.
