In memory of

Dr. John Edward Inglis

May 19, 1937 -  June 3, 2018

Jack passed away peacefully after a brief and valiant battle with pancreatic cancer. Predeceased by his first wife of 28 years, Diane (nee Richey), and his older brother Rex. He leaves his cherished daughters, Mardi (Tony Grant) and Corrie (John Colangelo) and his three adoring grandsons Connor Grant and Ben and Owen Colangelo. Jack also leaves his caring sister Kathy Sammy and his loving wife of thirteen years, Irene Edgar, her four daughters and their families. He will be sadly missed by his nieces and nephews John and Connie Allardyce, Lynn and Pete McAdam, Michael and Julie Inglis, and Julian and Joy Sammy and their families.

Jack attended a one-room schoolhouse near Rockwood, Ontario and went on to graduate from the University of Toronto, School of Medicine in 1962. He was a proud member of the Sigma Chi Fraternity. Jack was a highly respected and devoted family physician in Brampton for 40 years. Jack delivered more than 600 babies, made hundreds of house calls and performed countless rounds at Peel Memorial Hospital during his rewarding career. Jack was an avid gardener, talented artist, competitive bridge player and long-time member of Caledon Ski Club. He loved summering in Muskoka and travelling the world with his best friend, Dr. Erik Braaten. Jack will be greatly missed and never forgotten.

It is with sadness that I have heard about Jack and his passing. We lived next door to Jack for 7 years in St. Catharines. He and Irene welcomed us with open arms when we moved in next door. His kindness, happy smile, his care for his property were all evident from the time we moved in. Our time as neighbours was too short and although we had shared a couple of evenings over dinner and some bridge games, when we saw them moving away onto their next home, we were very sad to see them go. A man of great integrity, a huge loving heart and a wonderful neighbour has been lost. As a family it must be an even greater loss when the Patriarch leaves you.
Our sincere condolences to all of you. His memories live on and we hope you find comfort in those small treasures.
