I am still in shock from reading the announcement that Steve has left us.  I didn't know him well at Skyline, but have come to appreciate his many fine qualities as he  spearheaded our fiftieth reunion.  His kindness was sterling.  I had quite a few questions and insecurities about attending the reunion because of my disability.  Steve answered every question, found out all the answers I needed, and encouraged me to come.  I woudn't have been surprised to find out that he had personally checked out the women's restroom to assess its suitability for handicapped access. 

Such a gentleman.  I will miss him at our next reunion.  Fly with the eagles, Steve.

WOW. Steve lived a few blocks forom me, and just might have been the coolest guy I knew. We were in the same WARD and there are just hundreds of stories. He took after his father with wit and charm and a generous spirit. It's a really aweful thing to go to bed on. Steve.. it just can't be true. We were all eternally young.

As the new kid, I remember being terrified of being left out of everything, having no friends, etc. Steve was among very many of you who showed me kindness. Sorry that his page turned prematurely. L'hitraot. Vaya con Dios.

Steven Lee Ingleby

Steven Lee Ingleby passed away on May 29, 2018, after a courageous battle with lung cancer. Steve was born in SLC, UT on December 12, 1947, to Kenneth and Joan Ingleby. He graduated from Skyline High School and served a LDS mission in Belgium and France. He married Jean McCullough in the Salt Lake Temple and together they raised five children.

Steve had a passion for the outdoors and enjoyed guiding family, friends, and numerous youth groups on hiking, backpacking, mountain biking, and skiing excursions.  Moab and Snowbird were his Disney Land. His kids still wonder why anyone would wait in line for a roller coaster when you could have double the fun bombing trails on a mountain bike or carving fresh lines through Utah powder. Steve found remarkable peace and solace in Nature, especially when enjoying time outdoors with family and friends.

He loved to travel, especially in Europe and the British Isles.  The south of France, with its rolling fields of vibrant flowers and hilltop, medieval cities, held a special place in his heart.  He had a deep love of culture, literature, and fine art. As a voracious reader and lifelong student, he left behind a massive collection of books his family will spend the next decade carting off to their final resting places. He took up writing in retirement and produced multiple family histories and a brief, two hundred and seventy page memoir.

As a life long Ute fan, he bled crimson red at countless University of Utah football and basketball games. After a loss, he was known as a fearsome parking lot warrior and scared many a fellow fan with his aggressive driving.

Steve graduated from the University of Utah with a Juris Doctorate and started a career as an Attorney. He specialized in real estate and banking law. Steve worked for Keith Romney Associates, Suitter, Axeland and Armstrong and Callister, Nebeker and McCullough. Ironically, Steve was never fond of the law and his real passion lay in Marketing and Business. Steve started incubating a laser refurbishment and manufacturing company on the side in 1987 and left the law in 1992 to work at National Laser full time. He ultimately split with his partners in 2003 and returned to practicing law. He continued to dabble in small business and real estate investing until retirement. In his memoir, Steve remarked, “It has always been amazing to me that career choices often come about serendipitously rather than pursuant to a plan we carefully formulate and act upon.”

After retiring, Steve and Jean served a LDS mission at the Salt Lake Observation and Assessment Center and Girls Transition Center.  There they met dozens of youth with whom they instantly felt a sweet and loving connection. Each week they helped host a fun activity and taught a Christian Sunday school class. After class on Sunday, they were given time to talk and counsel with the wonderful young people and Steve was allowed to offer LDS priesthood blessings upon request. They were humbled by each person’s heartbreaking story and amazed at their resilience. They served with several dear friends and met some wonderful new ones along the way. 

Most of all, Steve loved his wife, children, grandchildren and his great friends. He spent his life in dedicated service to them and others.  Steve is survived by his wife Jean, his five children Adam (Ann), Nicole Jerman (Michael), Christopher (Aracely), Aaron (Carla), Joshua (Melanie), and twelve grandchildren Brant, Tyler, Jacob, Rhett, Chase, Maya, Marissa, Kyle, Alexa, Avan, Laney and Caroline (with one more on the way).

. In lieu of flowers, please go outside and enjoy the beautiful mountains and red rock canyons that Steve so dearly loved.

I just received notice of Steve Ingleby's passing.  My heartfelt condolences to his family and friends.  In my most recent interactions with Steve I found him to be one of the most genuinely down-to-earth, honest and caring persons I've had the pleasure to know.  

During the years we all had in common I was not a close friend of Steve's, but I always liked and admired him.  He was always comfortable with those more generally popular while I ran with a slightly less popular and likely a slightly wilder bunch.

There wasn't any contact between Steve and me in the years between the time we attended school and the time leading up to the 50th reunion, but when he contacted me to extend an invitation, he treated me like an old and close friend.  It was mostly because of his honest friendliness that I decided to make the trip to attend.  I thought he and his support staff did a great job of that get-together.

In reading the news clipping about his life, it conformed to the great things I would have expected he would do in his life.  His passing was a compete shock.  I had no idea he was anything but the picture of health when I saw him last and he gave no hint that he was anything else. 

I will miss Steve.  The world is now a little dimmer with his light now shining in other realms, but I'm confident he will be doing important things there too.  I'm glad to have known him.
