William W. Inglis Obituary
July 13, 1931 - October 3, 2015 William Inglis, of Pacific Palisades, passed away at home on October 3rd surrounded by his adoring family. Bill was born in Columbus, Ohio, and moved to Beverly Hills at age five. He graduated from Hawthorne Grammar School, Beverly Hills High School and UCLA, and spent his childhood summers sailing on Mullett Lake in Topinabee, Michigan.�Throughout his school years, he excelled in swimming, basketball, rugby and football and was regarded as a superb athlete.� Bill worked in banking on Wall Street and in executive search in LA, but was proudest of the years he spent working in Washington D.C. for the Peace Corps. He retired the same day his first grandchild was born and thus began his new career as "Grandpa Bill".� At that point, he started a new athletic regimen, enjoying rollerblading, ocean swimming and bike riding--putting over 25,000 miles on his odometer. He also developed a keen interest in competitive bridge, achieving the rank of Bronze Life Master, and devoted a great deal of time to the study and practice of Christian Science, serving as the First Reader and Chairman of the Board of Directors for many years.��� � Bill was especially devoted to his family and friends who appreciated his interest in current events, his sense of humor, his kind, humble spirit, his optimism and his genuine concern for others. Bill is survived by his loving wife of 53 years, Alice, his daughter Katherine (Timothy Hosbein) and son Billy (Alyse Barnhart), his grandchildren, Olivia and Sophie Hosbein and Cyrus, Maya and Asha Inglis, his sister, Janet Moody, of Newport Beach, as well as his niece and six nephews. We will all cherish our memories of this much loved and beautiful man. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to UCLA Rugby c/o The UCLA Athletics Foundation, Attn: Emily Lerner, PO Box 24044 LA CA 90024.
