LOUIS JOSEPH IMFELD Feb. 14, 1918 – March 23, 2017

Louie Imfeld, long time Escalon res­i­dent, en­tered his rest on Thursday, March 23, 2017 at the age of 99. Born Louis Joseph Imfeld to Joe and Em­i­lie Imfeld, im­mi­grants from Sar­nen, Switzer­land and Giswil, Switzer­land, was born Fe­bru­ary 14, 1918, Holtville, CA. The oldest of three (sis­ter Erna Baum of Hay­ward, de­ceased, and brother Joe Imfeld, Cas­tro Val­ley, de­ceased) Louie grew up in Im­pe­rial Val­ley on a small fam­ily dairy. He met the love of his life, Mar­i­ana Burch at an Im­pe­rial Val­ley Swiss Club dance. They were mar­ried May 2, 1943 and spent nearly (short one month) 71 years to­gether as Mr. and Mrs. Their son Robert was born Novem­ber 27, 1945.

Mar­i­ana passed away April 10, 2014. Grandpa Louie, as we fondly called him, loved his San Fran­cisco Giants, spend­ing many hours lis­ten­ing to games on the ra­dio and later watch­ing on TV. They were al­ways the best when they won, but when they lost, they weren’t worth a “damn” and over paid!!! He also loved to fish and spent many hours trolling the lake to the detri­ment of any­one along for the ride… “It is al­most break­fast and they will get hun­gry soon.” Or, “got to be hun­gry now, it is lunch time.” And even later, “Din­ner time. Come on fish!” The BIG ONE was al­ways just around the next cor­ner… He had a big heart, loved his fam­ily, and never missed a grand­child’s ball game, con­cert, or play. He leaves be­hind son Robert Imfeld (Marge), grand­chil­dren Heidi (Kevin) Hawes, Hans (Ch­eryl) Imfeld, An­drea Imfeld, Trudie (Matt) Silva and Em­i­lie (Louie) Bouma. He also has nine great grand­chil­dren.
