1954 - 2016

Ben Imel, master craftsman and owner of Imel Woodworks, returned to his heavenly home December 8, 2016. He was born April 11, 1954 in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma to Kenneth Dean and Ruth Jane Imel.
Following graduation from the University of Oklahoma and becoming a Certified Public Accountant, Ben then earned his Masters Degree from Oklahoma State University in Industrial Arts Education. For the next 40 years, he followed his calling to create as a master woodworking craftsman. He always said he felt a kinship with Jesus each time he picked up a wood plane.
Although his works are featured in fine institutions across the nation, his true worth will live forever in the family and friends he inspired and loved. Like George Bailey in his favorite movie, “It’s a Wonderful Life,” Ben truly was “the richest man in town.”
Left to treasure his memories are the love of his life, his wife, Elaine Imel; his adoring children, son Parker and wife Cassie Emil of Coweta, as well as his grandson and namesake, Benjamin Imel; and daughter Hayley and husband Grant Leatherwood of Edmond. He is also remembered through his dear brothers, sisters, nieces, nephews and countless friends.
Funeral services to honor Ben’s life will be 2:00 p.m., Tuesday, December. 13, at the First Baptist Church of Chandler under the direction of the Lehman Funeral Home.
Interment will follow at Oak Park Cemetery, Chandler.
