Charles Howard Inglish 1914 - 2013

Charles Howard Inglish

Saturday, March 01, 2014
Ah! I see that someone else remembers the dreaded "electric paddle"! Mr. Inglish was my principal at Del City Elementary from 1959 to 1966, and it seemed like a lifetime back then. I was in his office for serious offenses three times during the 4th, 5th, and 6th grades; all surely worthy of punishment by paddling. Every blessed time, Mr. Inglish excused me simply for telling him the truth about my involvement in those incidents. I always thought him a good and fair man, and a role model of honesty for a young boy to aspire to. I'll say that Mr. Inglish did a man's job with me and made me a better man for it. My years at Del City Elementary were the best of my entire education and I wish to have told him exactly that; but will instead express my condolences to his family for their loss,and my gratitude to them for his selfless service in the Mid-Del school system.

Mr. English took Rick, Howard, Teddy and myself to Kansas City to see KC and the Yankees play during 4th of July weekend in 1961. Mickey hit 2 or 3 home runs during the series. Howard got Mickey's autograph. We had a pillow fight in a hotel room, feathers were every where. Mr. English showed a lot of patience toward young teenage boys. There were no cross words. What a memorial trip and fond memory. Thoughts go out to Howard and family.

Mr. Inglish, was a kind man a great person. He was my first principal. I was somewhat scared of him because I would always hear about an "electric paddle" in his office...:> RIP Mr. Inglish..journey well.
