Welcome to Smith Miner

John Joseph Imel, 94, of Midland, passed away on December 14, 2018 at Medilodge of Midland.

He was born on May 18, 1924 in Jackson, Michigan to the late William and Gertrude (Smith) Imel. In 1986 he married Nancy Vine and they had 32 wonderful years together.

John enjoyed movies, music of all kinds, and video games. He loved God’s beautiful world (scenery), watching the water and taking rides. Of most worth to him was the gospel and his family. One day in church he heard, “You may have all the money in the world and not be rich. To want for nothing is to be rich.” He was beloved by all who met him.

John is survived by his wife Nancy and two sons, John Jay (Barbara) Imel, Charles Louis Imel, and many grandchildren, great grandchildren, and great great grandchildren.

Cremation has taken place and a Memorial Service will be held at a later date.
