Obituary

Mr. Steven Franklin Imes

Fifty-eight years of life were lived, enjoyed, and celebrated by our beloved Mr. Steven Franklin Imes. He was born on March 23, 1962 in Iredell County to Mr. Frank Kelly Imes and Overseer Barbara Moore Imes; who survive. He peacefully entered into enteral rest on January 11, 2021 at Iredell Memorial Hospital, after having endured hardness and long-suffering, as a good soldier; and surrounded by cherished family members.

He attended Statesville City Schools, graduated from Statesville Sr. High in 1981, and attending Mitchell Community College. Mr. Imes was employed by Freightliner; where he worked as an Assembly line worker for several years. He was one of the chartered members of Church of the Living God Mission, now Greater Lilly’s Chapel Commandment Keeping Church; where he received his spiritual foundation. Through his faithfulness, commitment to his church, and love for the Word of God, he was ordained as a deacon. Deacon Imes was preceded in death by his maternal grandparents, Elder Rufus Charles Moore and Overseer Henrietta Ellis Moore, paternal grandparents, Mr. Daniel June Imes and Mrs. Ethel Odell Scott Imes, father-in-law, Mr. Thomas Roy Dalton Sr., and mother-in-law Mrs. Geraldine White Dalton.

Deacon Imes leaves to cherish the memory of his life, in addition to his parents, Mr. Frank Kelly Imes and Overseer Barbara Moore Imes; his loving and devoted wife, Kim Dalton Imes of the home; three children, Kensley (Ebony) Dalton, Chaven (Tiesha) Rucker, and Stephanie Imes, all of Statesville; ; three siblings, Jeff Imes, Ronnie (Dorothy) Imes, and Barron (Vonda) Imes; eight grandchildren, Marques Dalton, Makayla Dalton, Taven Rucker, Jaden (JD) Rucker, MaKinzie Dalton, Chaven Rucker Jr, Caleb Imes, and Ayden Rucker; five brothers-in-law, Thomas Dalton Jr., Kenneth (Theresa) Dalton, Keith Jackson, Ricky Dalton, and Perry Dalton; two sisters-in-law, Patricia (Tracey) Cockerham and Deborah Allison; and a host of nieces, nephews, cousins, other relatives and friends.

Deacon Imes was a Godly man who not only loved the Lord and his family; but he was a loyal Duke Blue Devil Basketball and Pittsburgh Steelers fan. He loved going to the gym and working out. In his spare time, he treasured working with electronics.

I fought a good fight, I kept the faith… I finished my course!!
