Inglis was born and raised on Denman Island, moving to Victoria for his high school years at Oak Bay. For the first 6 years of their marriage, Inglis and Fay lived on Hornby and Denman Islands. In 1948 they moved to Union Bay from where Inglis followed his work in the logging industry. Their 3 sons were raised in this much loved community. Inglis’ other career was in carpentry, building and renovating homes from Mission Hill to Buckley Bay and Denman. In retirement Fay and Inglis for several years remained in Union Bay from where they enjoyed snow birding in their small motor home in the winter and time spent at their Denman property in the summer. In 1989, they moved to a patio home on
Anderton Avenue in Courtenay in which they celebrated many milestone birthdays and anniversaries.
A Service of Remembrance will be held for Inglis at the Union Bay Community Hall on Saturday, December 5, 2009 at 1:30 pm.
