Dr. Richard Lynn Ingrim, 77, of Grand Saline, passed away November 22, 2020, in Tyler. He was born April 8, 1943, in Wichita, Kansas, to Clarence Houston & Eileen Leona Knowles Ingrim.

I had the pledger of working with Dr Ingram at Azalea trail, county Trails and Autumn woods hospice. I had something come up on my left side that resembled vain. You could say it literally brought dr. Ingram to his knees. I told him I hope he can get up from there so I don't know if I could lift him or not. His response was leave it to you to Lynn after all my years of medical practice you bring me something I've never seen before in my life. He was able to get up off his knees sat in the in the chair and you could see the wheels turning then he leaned forward and looked again at my side. Shook his head I just don't know he ordered more tests along with an ultrasound. It was an honor to have him also as my physician. My condolences to the family I'm your great loss.

Rick, his brothers Denny and Jim and I were like brothers rather than cousins!! When my folks would drop by to visit with mom's sister, Eileen and Pete, we would play, doing as much as we could get away with!!! Often it was Saturday that we would visit and us kids would get to go to the Hilltop Movies for kids, for 10 cents each!! What fun we had!! Awesome memories!!!
I send my sincere sympathies to Diane and the family!! I pray that my love, thoughts and prayers will hopefully bring a little bit of comfort!!! God Bless!!
