AUGUSTA, Ga. (WRDW/WAGT) - Funeral arrangements have been announced for two Fulton County deputies killed Sept. 29 in an Interstate 20 crash.
According to an online obituary, Deputy Anthony White’s visitation will be held from 2-6 p.m. Tuesday at the Murray Brothers Funeral Home Cascade Chapel, 1199 Utoy Springs Road SW in Atlanta. A celebration of life will be held at 1 p.m. Wednesday at Ephraim Baptist Church, 1202 W. Marietta Street NW in Atlanta. A burial will be held Wednesday at Mount Harmony Memorial Gardens, 581 Veterans Memorial Highway SE in Mableton.
Deputy Kenny Ingram’s online obituary says a celebration of life service will be held at noon Monday at Mount Ephraim Baptist Church, 1202 W. Marietta St. in Atlanta. A public viewing was held Sunday at Donald Trimble Mortuary.
White and Ingram were traveling east on I-20 at Lewiston Road near Grovetown to pick up an inmate to transfer to Fulton County jail. Investigators say the deputies were in a Dodge Charger that struck the back of a tractor-trailer that was stopped for traffic in the left lane.
White joined the Fulton County Sheriff’s Department in December 2012, and Ingram would have completed 15 years of service this month.
