Daniel "Dan" J. Strohmeyer

Daniel “Dan” J. Strohmeyer, age 69 of Linn, passed away Monday, May 9, 2022, at University Hospital and Clinics in Columbia surrounded by his loving family.


Dan was born April 12, 1953, in St. Louis, a son to the late Vito and Roberta (Werfel) Princivalli.


He was a 1971 graduate of Fox High School in Arnold.  He served his country in the United States Navy during the Vietnam Conflict.


On August 23, 1971, he was united in marriage to Christine Harris in House Springs, MO.  She survives at their home.


Dan was employed by Hampton Inn in Jefferson City as Head of the Maintenance Department for the last 14 years. 


He was a life member of the Big River VFW Post in Cedar Hill. 


Dan enjoyed cooking delicious meals for his family, listening to Blues music, drinking sweet tea and in his younger years he enjoyed hunting but as he grew older, he started to enjoy taking photos of the wildlife.  Dan was a “jack of all trades” and a “Mr. Fix It”. He was very realistic and direct person but big on telling jokes.  He was a collector and a model train enthusiast with his room known as Big D’s Railroad.  His greatest joy was spending time with his family especially on the Fourth of July holiday.
