Stebbins Brokenborough Ingram ’55

Stebbins Brokenborough Ingram ’55, of Matthews, N.C., passed Feb. 27, 2012. His love of life was apparent until he departed this world to join his heavenly Father. He was born June 24, 1933, in Winston-Salem, N.C., the son of the late James Berkley Ingram, Sr. and Virginia Stebbins Ingram. His immediate family includes his wife, Connie Lancaster Ingram, 220 Reefton Rd., Matthews, NC 28105; daughters, Karen Stebbins Ingram and Virginia Carter Ingram (Ariel Cintrón Arias); sister, Virginia Stebbins Ingram; niece, Jane Berkley Ingram von Feilitzsch (Heribert) and sons Fabian, Phillip, and Mathias; and family cousins, Mary Dare and Howard and Mary Howard Holderness. He was preceded in death by his brother, James Berkley Ingram, Jr. ’46. He was proud of his foreign exchange students, Anna Caterina Paola Erba from Milan, Italy; Sandra Durán Farré from Barcelona, Spain; Alexia Hou from Bordeaux, France; and Evgenia “Jane” Egorova from Moscow, Russia; and their families. His beloved cat, Brooklyn, and greyhounds, Peaches and Meg-o Ingram, had a special place in his heart. He loved the staff and customers of Johnny K’s restaurant in Indian Trail, world history, current events, traveling the world, and was very devoted to his family and friends. He hated peaches-the fruit-and tolerated Peaches, the dog. He had a great sense of humor and loved food from the 1950s, especially tomato aspic and anything he could augment with Texas Pete (from Winston-Salem, mind you). He was very proud of the major awards given to him in December 2011, by Roscoe and Sara Wagoner and Howard and Mary Dare Holderness. His friends and family treasure the goodness, integrity, honor, and good humor he projected. A graduate of Davidson, he served in the U.S. Army Agency as a cryptography analyst. Highlights of his career include VP of Wachovia Corporation, president of Wachovia Services, forming Allied Financial Services (a data processing firm processing banks throughout N.C., S.C., and Va.), founding director and president of the National Association of Bank Servicers, founding Ingram & Associates, Inc., and consulting with financial institutions throughout the U.S. and Russia. He designed and developed a nationwide computer-driven teller machine.
