'Moose,' my partner of 23 years, passed away March 15, 2013, one day before our anniversary at his home.
'Moose,' son of the late August and Theresa Niemeyer, is survived by his wife, "Ellie" Elnor Stender-Niemeyer.
He is also survived by his daughters Terry and Jan, step-children Reneé Lortie and Devin Kilday; grandchildren Joseph, Gina, Rebecca and Daniel; step-grandchildren Ryan, Joseph and Matthew Howard; nephew Richard Niemeyer; honorary children and grandchildren Carla and Lloyd and their children, Mike and Adrienne and Lacy Rhinehart; and many dear friends.
He was predeceased by his parents and one brother, Melvin Niemeyer.
'Moose' was a member of the Shrines for many years. He survived Pearl Harbor and was a civil servant for the military.
A memorial service will take place April 6, 2013 at noon at Hedges-Scott Funeral Home in Osage Beach, followed by a reception at the Four Seasons activity center at 1 p.m.
Please come celebrate his life. Special thanks and acknowledgment to all the lake area entertainers that helped us dance through life.
