Brian David Inglis was born to David and Cindy Inglis on November 7, 1985, in Colorado Springs, CO.
Brian's boyhood was filled with family traditions and adventures including yearly summer trips and boating at Lake Michigan, and snow skiing, four-wheeling, dirt biking, skeet shooting, multiple fishing trips, and camping in the Colorado Rockies.
Brian graduated from Lewis Palmer High School in 2004. He graduated Summa Cum Laude from the University of North Dakota in 2008, with a degree in Aeronautics, majoring in Commercial Aviation. He was also a member of the university’s Air Force ROTC program. During college, Brian excelled as an instructor pilot at both UND's flight school and at the Air Force Academy in Colorado Springs.
After college graduation Brian flew commercially for Delta Airlines. Subsequently, Brian became a vital asset and Partner in the family business and had tremendous success and relational impact particularly in the company's produce packaging division. Brian also continued his flying career, piloting their business aircraft for more than half a decade.
As he transitioned from undergrad and into his vocation, and then becoming a husband and father, Brian constantly exemplified excellence, perseverance, and integrity in all his endeavors. He loved, he created, he worked, and he celebrated his loved ones in this life in a most man-honoring and God-glorifying way.
Brian's first love was his wife, Heather. On a meticulously planned proposal, Brian became engaged to Heather atop the Manitou Springs Incline. They soon married and within a handful of years, their family grew from two to four in a home that was full of love, friends, family, sports, and adventures.
While Brian’s family, friends, customers, and colleagues are deeply saddened by the loss of Brian, we will forever be impacted by his love, enthusiasm, and strength.
All those he loved can be confident that Brian the husband, the daddy, the son and brother, and Brian the friend was completely and utterly happy. And that he shared his happiness freely and richly and graciously with us.
Brian proved in word and deed, he loved well and he lived fully and he left his community and circles of influence far better than he found them.
Brian’s vigor, his smile, the twinkle in his eye, the way he loved his wife and boys, his value for relationships, and his work ethic all contributed to Brian’s flourishing as a family man and working man.
Brian's love cannot be overstated, particularly for his wife and boys.
How does a man, a husband, and a daddy love and live so well and unite together his family and friends, except by the grace of our God?
Brian is survived by his beloved wife, Heather Inglis of Monument, CO; their two young sons, Jackson James and Harrison David, who were deeply loved and pursued by their daddy; his loving and proud parents Dave and Cindy of Monument, CO; his sister Christa (Chris) Payne of Denver, CO and; nephews Elliot, Clement, and Isaac.
