November 14, 1967 - July 27, 2016
Kenneth Lenard “Kenny” Ray Ingram Sr. was called home to be with his Lord on Wednesday, July 27, 2016 at his residence in Winston-Salem. He was born to the late Betty Jean Ingram and Henry “Pete” Porter on November 14, 1967 in Winston-Salem. Kenny Ray attended public school in Forsyth County. He was employed at Novant Health Forsyth Medical Center and Food Lion at the time of his death, and was eagerly planning to attend school to become a professional truck driver. Kenny Ray was a faithful member of Second New Bethel Baptist Church where he supported the senior pastor as an armor bearer, and served on the usher board and male chorus. His life was a testimony of his love for Jesus Christ which he often expressed in song. Kenny Ray wore an infectious smile that won the hearts of Food Lion patrons, especially the senior citizens. He epitomized the best in customer service as he graciously escorted them to the aisle to locate a food item. The meat department was his work station, but his assignment was a higher calling to help others with humility. Kenny Ray was an awesome cook and grill master. He was renowned for toiling for hours preparing mouth-watering meals for friends, loved ones and special occasions. It was a labor of love with his trademark smile always on the menu. Fish would also likely be on the menu, particularly after a great catch at his favorite spot. Kenny Ray was indeed Christ-like in his esteem for children. “Jesus said, ‘Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.’" – Matthew 19:14 Kenny Ray was preceded in death by: his parents; grandmother, Dora Moore; brother, Curtis Anthony Porter; and niece, Sabrina Denise Porter.
