Passed on: December 8th, 2012
It is with great sadness that we announce the peaceful passing of Leslie “Buck” Ingleby on Saturday, December 8, 2012 at the Victoria General Hospital, Winnipeg, MB.
He is survived by his son, Harry; sister-in-law, Agnes Ingleby; brother-in-law, Ron Ulrich (Bev); and many nieces and nephews. He was predeceased by his parents Harry and Florence Ingleby; brothers Tom, Art, Harry, and Stan; and his cherished wife, RoseMarie.
Buck was born near Secretan, SK and grew up in Moose Jaw, SK. He served in the 77th Battery, 3rd Canadian Field Regiment, Royal Canadian Artillery, from 1941-45, in England, Sicily, Italy and NW Europe. He worked as a Carpenter, Customs Agent, and Meat Inspector, and happily retired in 1985. Buck found joy in fishing, hunting, fine woodwork, gardening, baking, reading, cards, Scrabble, and the company of friends and family. He was very active with Scouts Canada. He was happy to call Swift Current, SK home from 1969-2008, and he spent his final years living with Harry in Winnipeg. Buck will be affectionately and lovingly remembered for his keen, curious, inventive mind, his mischievous sense of humor, his delight in wordplay, songs, jokes and verse, his tremendous competence at any task to which he set his hand, and most especially his kind and generous spirit.
No formal funeral service will be held at this time. A gathering in his memory will take place in Spring 2013, at which time his ashes will be laid to rest beside those of his dear wife in Swift Current.
In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in Buck’s name to a charity of your choice.
His son Harry would like to extend special thanks to Dr. Cavers and the staff of Five South, Victoria General Hospital, for the kind and compassionate care shown to Dad in his final days, and to his friends and family for their love and support.
