Inmann married Celeste Willingham on August 18, 1957, in the First Baptist Church of Forsyth, GA.  He began a career with Georgia Power at Plant Arkwright in Macon, GA.  He worked for 37 years until his retirement as Operations Supervisor at Plant Bowen in Cartersville, GA. 

Inmann was devoted to his family, his friends, and to his Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.  He was a coach and mentor for many young men who played football for “The Black Knights”, a team that prepared these kids for life and for the tradition that is Mary Persons football. 

Inmann and Celeste became charter members of Heritage Baptist Church in Cartersville, GA, in 1987.  Inmann took part in the “Reading Buddies” program where he and other church members would read to elementary school children.  He served his church and family well and was deeply loved by all who knew him.
