We are deeply sorry for your loss - the staff at Dawson's Mortuary
“For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our LORD.”
Otis Terrell Ingram was born September 18, 1971 in Baldwin County, Georgia. He was the ninth child of nine children born to Marian Harris-Ingram and the Late Curtis (Cutis) Ingram. Otis was preceded in death by one brother, Elvis Tyrone Ingram.
Otis was educated in the Public Schools of Hancock County, Georgia, graduating from Hancock Central High School with the class of 1991. He was a former employee of Piggly Wiggly Groceries, The Baldwin County Sheriff’s Department. Otis was employed with The Georgia Department of Corrections with the rank of Lieutenant at Baldwin State Prison (19 years), Milledgeville, Georgia, and Sizemore Security before gaining his wings.
On his weekends off, when Otis arrived home from work early Sunday morning, he would fire up the grill and cook enough food to feed an army. He loved cooking for his family and was an excellent chef, “Chef Big O.” He didn’t talk a lot, he truly loved his family and friends.
On the 31st day of May, 2022, our beloved Otis answered the call that we all will have to answer one day. God said, “My child, you fought a good fight, now it is time for you to come unto me and get your deserved rest.” Weep not for me though I have gone into that gentle night. Grieve if you will, but not for long upon my soul’s sweet flight. I am at peace; I suffer not, the fear is gone. Put now these things out of your thoughts, in your memory, I live on. Remember not my fight for breath, remember not the strive. Please do not dwell upon my death but celebrate my life.
