Elliot Ingram, III (


Elliot Ralph Ingram, III (Chip), 82, passed away on Monday August 2, 2021, surrounded by his loving family.

Chip was born in Meadville, PA to Elliot Ralph Ingram and Margaret Harris.  He attended Meadville High School, where he was a starter on the high school basketball team.  In his off time, he was an avid golfer and hunter.  Chip then attended The College of William & Mary on golf and basketball scholarships.  During his junior year, he was given the opportunity to go on the PGA tour.  After time on the tour, he returned to William & Mary where he finished his degree in Economics.

After college, Chip was hired by American Hospital Supply where he traveled the US participating in the development of the first spinal anesthesia tray.  He continued playing golf, where he met his future boss and mentor.  Chip then went to work for what is now a division of International Paper, thus began his foray into industrial packaging. 

In 1988, Chip married Diane.  They each brought a daughter into the relationship.  In 1989, Chip and Diane started their own packaging company.  The company grew exponentially under their leadership and is currently operating as MSI Packaging.

In 2003, Chip and Diane retired to The Landings, a community Chip had been familiar with since the 1970s.  Chip continued to play golf in retirement.  He also enjoyed shooting at the Forest City Gun Club and was a member of Skidaway Island United Methodist Church.

Chip is survived by his wife, Diane, his daughters, Dawn J Ingram of Savannah and Lindsay Barron of Parker, Colorado, and his grandchildren, Joseph and Chrissy Elliott of Parker, Colorado.  He is also survived by family members, Bruce Ford of Dayton, Indiana, and Tiffany and Maverik Freeman of Lafayette, Indiana.

A memorial service will be held at the Whitefield Chapel on the campus of Bethesda Academy at 2pm on Friday August 6, 2021.  Celebration of life to follow at the Palmetto Club Ballroom at The Landings.
