William Clark INGLIS
Our Dad was born in Vernon, June 15th, 1923 and passed away peacefully on April 12th, 2013 with his family at his side. Dad was two months shy of his 90th birthday.
He was predeceased by his parents and all of his brothers and sisters as well as his beloved two year old son, Bruce, in 1952 and by the love of his life, Betts, in August of 1991. Left to cherish the memory of this dear man are: his wife, Alice, and her children and grandchildren; his sons, Clark Inglis (Barb) and Glen Inglis (Monica); his daughters, Judy Hermanson (Bill) and Heather Kakoske (Mike); grandchildren: Scott Hermanson (Amorette), Trisha Fudurich (Beau), Corey Inglis (Cindy), Jay Inglis (Cathy), Randy Inglis (Jennifer), Matt Inglis (Charlotte), Brad Inglis (Jenna), Jordan Inglis (Ana), Ryan Kakoske, and Bryce Kakoske (Lori); great grandchildren: Justice Inglis, Jeremiah Inglis, Leandra Inglis, Marshall Inglis, and Saylor Inglis, as well as many nieces and nephews.
Dad was a wonderful father and husband who served his country in Europe during WW2. In his younger days, Dad was a good athlete and baseball was his game. He continued his love of sports with Mom as they attended as many of his children’s and grandchildren’s sporting events as they could, which were many.
Dad was loved and respected by all his kids’ friends and anyone who knew him for his kind and quiet way backed up with his engaging smile. I never heard Dad say anything unkind about anyone. He will be greatly missed by his Legion family, who were so important to him. His long and dedicated service to the Legion only slowed in the past year as his health began to fail.
Dad was an amazing man whose love of family was something to behold. He loved us all, supported our decisions and choices in life and never voiced a negative opinion. He was proud of his children, grandchildren and great grandchildren and nothing made him happier than when we were all together. We all have so many fond memories to cherish but will miss his physical presence dearly.
