Dear People of the Holy Innocents,
On behalf of the Wardens, Vestry, and Endowment Trustees, I am deeply thankful to announce the establishment of The Inglett Family Endowment Fund. This gift of $1 million is the largest bequest Holy Innocents has ever received.
Ray Inglett included this generous gift in his estate planning, reflecting his deep love for this community. He wanted to support the parish in perpetuity, and working with his advisors, created a way to ensure that our parish will have a great and enduring legacy for generations to come. These funds have been permanently placed in the Holy Innocents Endowment and income from the fund, along with other unrestricted gifts, will be administered under the policies and procedures of the Endowment that are already in existence. Ray knew that we needed to grow our Endowment significantly to be a stronger parish; he made a personal commitment to do so many years ago when he joined the Legacy Society, a society for those making unrestricted gifts a part of their estate planning.
Ray was born on November 27, 1928 in Atlanta, the son of the late Raymond and Marion Inglett. He was married to the love of his life, Carol Etta Fike, for 42 years until her passing in 1998. He was a dedicated husband, father and adoring grandfather. After graduating from Georgia Tech in 1949 with a degree in Electrical Engineering, at 21 years of age, he joined the Air Force and was stationed in Colorado and Kentucky. In 1954, he founded the electrical construction firm Inglett & Stubbs, Inc, from which he retired in 1992. He will be remembered for his generosity throughout the Atlanta community and his deep love of Holy Innocents, where he was a parishioner from 1959. He is survived by his daughter and son- in-law Susan and David Platzker of New York, son and daughter in-law Steve and Patti Inglett of Marietta, Ga., and his daughter and son in-law Laura and Mike Parrish of Atlanta, Ga.
Gifts such as Ray’s are incredibly important in the life of a parish and ensure a never failing “crowd of witnesses” for our Lord. (Hebrews 12:1). We are deeply thankful for his leadership and faithful witness among us and for generations to come.
