Testimonials
In Loving Memory of Ingram Lee...
Forever in our Hearts!
Pat and Ingram met in Jacksonville, AL more than 35 years ago in a disco tech called The Odyssey.  Ingram was known for his "John Travolta" moves and "Danny Terio" outfits.  Pat walked into the club with a friend and Ingram and his buddy flipped a coin to choose which women they would dance with that night......Ingram lost the coin toss and got Pat.  After dancing the night away they have been inseparable ever since.
 
Pat and Ingram were married in 1979 and have lived the majority of their lives in New Orleans, LA.  Ingram started his career in the oil industry as an inspector with Saybolt Inc. and then moved onto Torco Energy.  Ingram moved onto Coastal Trading which landed them in Aruba for 1 year.  Ingram eventually moved onto John W. Stone where he and his partner, Victor Brossette, made JW Stone a worldwide company.  Ingram was a mentor to many traders and was always there for guidance for the younger guys.
 
Ingram was known for his large stature but his nickname, "Pooh", truly defined this man's heart.  Ingram was a big teddy bear who gave more than he ever took back and touched the lives of more people than he will ever know.  He was a great man and a great husband who idolized his wife Pat.
 
Ingram was truly a teddy bear and kids migrated to him because of his incredible smile and infectious laugh.  He constantly gave every child his love and affection.
 
Ingram was a great son, uncle, brother, friend and husband but most of all he was the greatest man that touched the hearts of so many.
 
We Love You Pooh!!
 

Ingram Lee

In 2020 our 8th annual Ingram Lee Foundation Golf Tournament was extremely successful raising over $345,000 due to the generosity of our many supporters even with the challenges of Covid-19.

The Board of Directors voted unanimously to award over $250,000 in scholarships  and annuities following this incredible year raising our total awarded scholarships and annuities to $1,250,000 over a eight year period.
This year's recipients include Texas A&M, LSU, Notre Dame & NOCCA for the various annuities and scholarships. 

In recognition of the recent fires in Napa & Sonoma Valley we decided to donate our raise the paddle proceeds at our golf event to the families of first responders and workers.  We were able to raise $38,500 to help those in need.
