Engineering staffer dies from injuries sustained in crash

Timber Dick, the director of marketing and recruitment for DU’s School of Engineering and Computer Science, died April 10 at the University of Colorado Hospital. He was 52.

Dick was critically injured and suffered severe burns March 29 when his vehicle slid off Interstate 70 after the wheel of his Dodge Caravan locked up.

Dick, president of Tendix Development, invented a high-efficiency engine that was to be recognized by NASA later this month. He was the son of Colorado’s first female lieutenant governor, Nancy Dick.

Services will be held Tuesday, April 15, at 10 a.m. at the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, 610 Coors St., in Lakewood.

Dick is survived by his wife, Annette Tillemann-Dick, and 11 children.
