Joshua Imes was born on May 4, 1981 in Montevideo, MN to Les and Kimberly Schroeder Imes.  He grew up in Montevideo, MN and made his home in Marshall, MN for the past 8 years.
Joshua loved being with his family, but also liked his time alone. He kept himself busy playing video games, riding his bike, working out at the YMCA and art.  Joshua was an amazing artist and had a lot of “unique” ideas.
Joshua was the best at HUGGING! His favorite phrase was, “Do you want/need a hug?” and of course we would say, “yes!”. This wasn’t just a regular hug, this was a feet off the floor hug!  That is one of the things we will miss the most.
