John Daniel Ingle, Jr., 79, of Richardson, TX passed away peacefully at his home on December 14, 2023, in the company of his loved ones after a long illness. He was born in Oklahoma City, OK on October 8, 1944 to John Ingle, Sr., and Kittie Mae Stockett Ingle.
Known as “Johnny” during childhood, he enjoyed playing numerous rounds of golf from the young age of ten. He met his future wife, Susan Pickering, when they were in 5th grade(!), and they grew up attending Westminster Presbyterian Church and Harding High School together in OKC. John attended Westminster College in Fulton, Missouri for a year and then joined Susan at the University of Oklahoma where he was a Sigma Alpha Epsilon fraternity member.
After receiving their degrees from OU, John and Susan were married on August 13, 1965. They were blessed with two children, Carolyn and Christopher, who in turn blessed them with five beautiful granddaughters. A year before his death, John also had the special pleasure of welcoming and holding his great grandson.
John’s 42-year career as a portfolio manager began after he received his BBA from the University of Oklahoma and his MBA from the University of Pennsylvania, Wharton School of Finance, starting with Continental Bank & Trust in Chicago and culminating with Smith Group Asset Management in Dallas. In between, he helped many clients find financial security through his positions of increasing responsibility at First National Bank & Trust in Oklahoma City, Trust Company of Texas, Bank of America in Dallas, and others before his retirement. Along the way, he enjoyed giving clients peace of mind and was known for mentoring many younger colleagues.
John and Susan have been longtime members of Canyon Creek Presbyterian Church in Richardson, Texas, where John’s financial background made him a valued servant in many capacities, including offering his gifts as a deacon, an elder, and a member of the finance committee where he negotiated the financing that led to the church’s new building.
He is joyfully remembered for his devotion to Pilgrimage (formerly Cursillo) where he served as Moderator and in many other capacities, most often as a Table Cha where his servant heart and uncharacteristic playfulness made him a favorite. His faith was strong, his favorite scripture being Isaiah 43:1, “I have called you by name; You are Mine,” expressing God’s personal, loving relationship.
Following the loss of his mother, John started his own consoling ministry, offering solace to grieving family, friends, and even strangers by sending them comforting words from ‘Chapter 4’ in the book When Christ Comes by Max Lucado. For more than two decades, hundreds found comfort thanks to John’s kind remembrance.
After John’s retirement in 2009, he enjoyed spending more time with his growing family and would also spend hours happily working in his yard, volunteering with Network of Community Ministries, and delivering Meals on Wheels. He and Susan rarely missed an OU football game (Boomer Sooner!), snow-skied annually in Colorado, and made many memorable trips to Europe with their travel group friends.
John is survived by his wife of 58 years, Susan, of Richardson, TX; daughter Carolyn (Chris) Dierks of Dallas, TX, son Chris (Susan) Ingle of Marion, MA; five granddaughters, Meredith (Will) Bramblett of Richardson, TX, Megan (Jake) Arredondo of Kingsville, TX, Emily Dierks of Norman, OK, and Katie and Stella Ingle of Marion, MA; and great grandson Brooks Bramblett of Richardson, TX; brother Steve (Barbara) of Bixby, OK, and sister Jane Ingle McCord of Houston, TX and many nephews, nieces, and cousins. He was preceded in death by his parents and his newborn grandson, Oliver Jack Ingle.
A service to celebrate John’s life will be held at 11am on Saturday, January 20, 2024, at Canyon Creek Presbyterian Church, 3901 North Star Road, Richardson, TX, 75082.
