Age 87, passed away August 24, 2012. He was born August 18, 1925, in Pleasant Valley, MI, to Leon and Ethel McClintic. From high school, Nile served in the U.S. Navy. He was honorably discharged in 1946, and on May 19 of that year, he married the “light of his life,” Margaret D. Hazelton. Nile worked for John Bean for a short time, and then joined the Lansing Police Department in 1948. He retired 34 years later, in 1982, as a Lieutenant. Nile loved sports, especially golf, baseball, football and bowling, but his family and his grandchildren were the most important.

Surviving are: son, Ronald McClintic; daughter, Sue (Tim) Poxson; 4 McClintic grandchildren, Greggory, Jennifer, Jeffrey, Scott, and their mother, Kristine McClintic.
