Daniel Charles Niemeyer passed away on April 8, 2022.  He was born in Breese, Illinois on September 29, 1939. He graduated with a bachelor’s degree from the University of Illinois, received a master’s degree from Temple University and a PhD from the University of Colorado, Boulder.  His accomplishments include Director of Academic Media at CU Boulder where he also taught in the School of Journalism. After his retirement, he was an author and consultant on classroom design. 

He loved to travel with his wife (Rita) Ann of 54 years.  They traveled extensively in Europe and the United States.  His adventurous travels with his grandchildren gave him great joy. More than anything, he loved sitting on the patio on warm days with a glass of wine listening to “his” 50’s music.

He is survived by his wife (Rita) Ann, his sons Jerry (wife Stacy) and Robert (wife Sheri), his two grandchildren Daniel J. and Emily, their mother Teri and his sister Diane.  He was preceded in death by his parents, Charles and Agnes Niemeyer.

He will be deeply missed and will be remembered as a kind, generous husband, father and grandfather.

  1. Dear Ann,
    I feel very fortunate to have met Dan. I enjoyed the dinners Ron and I had with you and Dan during our high seas adventure. You and your family remain in our thoughts and prayers. All my love to you during this time. May God bless you with peace.

  2. Dear Ann,
    For us it always was a pleasure to say “Hello” to you both, the neighbors of my Uncle Peters family when we were in Boulder. We had so much fun when discussing the right cooking of breakfast bacon, when comparing differences between US and German culture, cars, school systems, shopping, … whatever! I will keep these moments in my mind!
    All the best for you! I hope, our thoughts will help you!
    Love Susanne
