Mr. Les Inglis, a native of Calgary, Alberta, passed away on November 19, 2021, at Mission Memorial Hospital at the age of 100. He was born to Isabelle Ellen Inglis and Alexander Ralston Inglis and grew up in a loving family. Les was a devoted husband to his beloved wife Arlene Bernice Inglis for a remarkable 66 years. Together, they built a beautiful life, filled with cherished memories. Sadly, Les was predeceased by his eldest daughter Sandra Lenore Lewis on October 14, 1961.

Les is survived by his daughters Nancy Balzer, who is married to Richard Balzer, and Denise Warren, who was predeceased by her husband James Warren. He took immense pride in his grandchildren Kyle, Hailley, Joel, and Weston, with whom he shared a special bond. Additionally, he had the joy of witnessing the growth of three great-grandchildren.

Throughout his life, Les made significant contributions to the construction industry. His work as a prominent contractor for Boyd Construction included the construction of several banks, schools, and the first-ever McDonald’s restaurant in Canada, located in Richmond. His dedication and expertise also played a crucial role in the expansion of Mayfair Lakes Golf Club, where he held a longstanding membership.

Les had a passion for travel and loved planning vacations with friends. He organized countless cruises and trips, exploring different corners of the world. Furthermore, he relished fishing and golfing trips, and for many years, served as a game warden during duck hunting season on Westham Island. Les also committed his time to serving his community as a volunteer firefighter in Richmond and remained a devoted member of the Richmond Masonic lodge for over half a century.

Above all, Les was a deeply loyal and generous individual. He lived a life dedicated to his wife, family, and numerous friends. His genuine warmth and kind-hearted nature endeared him to everyone he met. Les leaves behind a void that will be deeply felt by all who had the privilege of knowing him.

The family would like to express their heartfelt gratitude to the staff at Mission Memorial Hospital and TRIM for their exceptional care during Les’s final days. In honor of his late daughter Sandra, the family kindly requests that, instead of flowers, donations be made to the B.C. Cancer Foundation.

Les Inglis will be dearly missed and forever remembered.
