Daniel T. Imming, 67 passed away at 1:50 p.m. on May 3, 2018 at home after a short illness with his wife by his side. He was born in Topeka, Kan. on March 29, 1951 to parents Maurice M. Imming Sr. and Patricia (Holst). His parents preceded him in death.
Dan and his wife Cyndy met while they were serving in the United States Air Force and they were united in marriage on December 18, 1976 in Redlands, Calif. Dan served as an Air Traffic Controller for 18 years and then a Communication Computer Systems Program Manager for two years at Headquarters Air Combat Command Langley AFB, VA before he retired as a Master Sergeant (E-7) in August 1993. He had been stationed in California, England, Arizona, Korea and finally Virginia. He received the Air Force Meritorious Service Medal, the Air Force Commendation Medal with one oak leaf cluster along with several other medals and awards.
He began his retirement as a Chimney Sweep and also opened a Packaging and Shipping business with his wife, Cyndy. They then relocated to Las Vegas, Nev. where he went to work for several of the large casinos; Bellagio, Mirage, Wynn and Red Rock in various jobs and capacities.
His dream was always to live on Route 66 so they moved to Galena, Kan. before finally moving to Baxter Springs. At home Dan loved collecting Coleman lanterns, watching sports with his wife, listening to Country music and the NY Yankees, working in the yard and especially spending time with friends at the Streetcar Station Coffee Shop in Galena. Dan and Cyndy also enjoyed traveling to Laughlin and Las Vegas, Nev. where they would spend time with Cyndy’s parents. As avid NY Yankee fans this past fall they traveled to the Baseball Hall of Fame where they were among the Yankee greats.
For those who would like to pay their respects and celebrate Dan’s life there will be a “Celebration of Life” Memorial Service at House of Prayer, 6090 S. East Highway Alt 69/400 Riverton, KS on Saturday, June 2, 2018 at 3:30 p.m., and officiated by Dan’s good friend Pastor Audie Tash.
He is survived by his wife of almost 42 years, Cyndy and his brothers, Maurice M. “Bud” Imming Jr. of Surprise, Ariz. and Gregory Imming of Las Vegas, Nev. and his sister Sarah Brandon of Prairie Village, Kan.
