In memory of
Kenneth Eugene Nimmo
Kenneth Eugene Nimmo Palm Springs - January 18, 2019 was born June 11th, 1930 in Huntington West Virginia to Clyde Clayton Nimmo and Bessie McCallister Nimmo Ken was the youngest member of the Nimmo family joining his 5 brothers, Bryan, Paul , Bill, Lemon, Cleadith; and 3 sisters, Freda, Kathryn , and Jewel in Huntington West Virginia where he grew up. Ken proudly studied Civil Engineering at Marshall University which he considered his home town school. After graduation Ken started his career in the Aero Space industries in Melbourne Fl. Eventually joining Boeing Corporation and moving to Chicago, Illinois. After experiencing life in the big City of Chicago Ken decided on a different Adventure. "The Alaskan Pipeline" Ken was beginning to really appreciate the challenges of really large projects and what is larger than a pipe line across some of the world's most remote and inhospitable landscape. As an insight into Ken's younger years, during a lull in Pipeline Ken took a job tending bar where his skill playing the accordion and his zest for life really came in handy. This was also where he met the piano (those of us who heard him play) Well! he gave it a serious effort. But alas eventually the pipe was finished, and Ken decided to go south. Warming up in San Jose California, Ken fell in love with the San Francisco Bay Area. The hustle bustle of California Life, the beautiful weather, the open life style, the friendly and approachable people and the finding of his real calling. Real Estate. Kens engineering training allowed him to understand how things worked and what they needed to work or look better. That coupled with his enjoyment in doing the work himself brought the realization that he could do what he really loved and make a living too. First one house then another, throw in a few apartments, add an apartment building, a few vacation properties and suddenly just checking on these properties was a full-time job. It was time to retire. Ken had been visiting Palm Springs for years but around 2015 he moved to Palm Springs permanently where he lived with his longtime companion Roberto Viglione in the Deepwell area of town. Ken was always the consummate gentleman whose favorite quote "Be the friend to another, that you wish you had" was exactly how he lived. He is survived by many nieces and nephews who loved him dearly as well as many friends here in the valley who miss him already.
