Trooper Randy K. Ingram

September 14, 1955 – October 5, 1994

Randy Ingram joined the Utah Highway Patrol August 4, 1984. He served at the Kanab Port of Entry and as a field Trooper at Fillmore, before transferring to Juab County in February 1988. He was a member of the Juab County Search and Rescue for 15 years, serving since 1979. He served 20 years in the Utah National Guard and held the rank of Staff Sergeant. On October 5, 1994, Trooper Ingram stopped a van loaded with Boy Scouts, for no visible taillights. A semi-truck driver fell asleep, drifting into the emergency lane and struck Trooper Ingram’s patrol car. The proper placement of his patrol car saved the lives of the scouts, but Trooper Ingram was killed instantly. Randy was survived by his wife, Carlene and two beautiful children, Megan, age 4 and Devan, age 2. Trooper Randy Ingram gave his life to protect the lives of others.
