Richard “Rick” Joseph Dannenmiller, of St. Petersburg, died July 12, 2021 at the age of 54 years. Rick was born August 3, 1966 in Seattle, Washington. He graduated from Northeast High School and Florida State University, where he was a brother of Sigma Phi Epsilon. His first career out of college was working for Paul Davis Systems and he worked his way to owning his own Franchise until 2017. Rick then moved on and worked as a construction consultant.
When he wasn’t hard at work, he enjoyed boating, spending time with family, and weekends out in the sun somewhere near water. Rick was the life of the party, loved telling stories, and making people laugh. He could keep a crowd engaged and was very well spoken. He enjoyed a good time, making jokes, and could make a stranger his best friend. Rick had a beautiful smile and his laugh was as goofy as he was. He could never be seen without a stain on his shirt.
Rick was preceded in death by his father, Richard O. Dannenmiller. He is survived by his loving wife Nadine of St. Petersburg; daughters Lauren and Olivia Dannenmiller of St. Petersburg; step-sons Drew and Cameron Magnani of St. Petersburg; step-grandchild Violet Magnani; mother Jo Ann Dannenmiller of Treasure Island; brother Mark (Christie) Dannenmiller of Gainesville, GA; niece Kiley Dannenmiller of Gainesville, GA; and nephew Keller Dannenmiller of Gainesville, GA.
