Daniel Hugh Jamieson, 88, of Leland, died Wednesday, March 1, 2017 at Munson Hospice House surrounded by his family. He was born April 14, 1928, in Toledo, Ohio, where he lived until moving permanently to his Leland home in 1984.
He graduated from Scott High School, then attended Princeton University before transferring to the University of Toledo, where he received a Bachelor of Arts in 1951. He married Marian Wieting in 1950, and—during 56 years—raised six children. In 1954, he and his brother Dick founded Jamiesons' Hi-Fi (today Jamiesons' Audio Video), one of the first retail audio stores in Northwest Ohio. After four years of retirement, in 1987 Dan followed a life-long passion for reading and books to become the librarian of the Leland Township Library—a position he held for 18 years. While his passion was always his family, he loved music from Beethoven to the American Songbook to the Beatles, was an avid collector and a good-humored golfer.
He was preceded in death by his wife Marian; his parents, Burton and Irma Jamieson; his brothers, Burton, George, David and Dick; his son, Todd Jamieson. He is survived by his children, Daniel (Kathy) Jamieson, Jr., David (Susan) Jamieson, Andrew (Robin) Jamieson, Marian (Terrie) Jamieson and Burton (Shelly) Jamieson; 14 grandchildren; nine great-grandchildren.
The family plans a reception during summer 2017 in Leland to celebrate Dan's life.
