Daniel Leo "Danny" Niggemeyer

June 19, 1951 - January 13, 2022

Daniel “Danny” Leo Niggemeyer passed away on January 13, 2022, in Summersville, WV at the age of 70. He was born in Wheeling WV on June 19, 1951, and was educated at St.Mary’s School for Exceptional Children in St. Louis, MO, Lincoln School in Wheeling, WV, and the Deveraux Foundation in Philadelphia, PA. Despite mild intellectual challenges, Danny was remarkably resilient and always eager to learn. He was an accomplished home painter and displayed amazing carpentry skills. He was employed in the maintenance department at Wheeling College, and later worked at True Value Hardware on Washington Ave. in Wheeling. His time at the True Value store represented one of the happiest experiences of his life due to the unconditional support he received from owners Don and Nancy Meredith. Danny greatly enjoyed Rock and Roll music, tools, photography, and travel. He was preceded in death by his parents Daniel and Justina (Nesline) Niggemeyer, sister Jane Carver, and infant brother James. He is survived by his brother-in-law Albert Carver of TX, nephews, Clifford (Sassa) Carver of OR and Justin (Sarah) Carver of CA, and cousins Patrick (Marianne) Philipps, Dennis (Kathy) Philipps, Mary (Frank) Stoy, and Lee Childers. A Mass of Christian burial will be celebrated at 10:30 am on Wednesday January 19, 2022, at St. Michael’s Parish in Wheeling. Interment to follow at Mt. Calvary Cemetery.
