    Del Nitzband, age 80, passed away Saturday, March 14, 2015 at the Appleton Medical Center. Del was born in Greenville on September 10, 1934, son of the late William and Emma (Rehfeldt) Nitzband. He was drafted into the United States Army, and earned his GED while serving. Del married the former Margaret Daul on November 3, 1956 at St. Therese Church in Appleton; she survives. Early on, Del drove cab for Fox Valley Cab, but most will remember him for the thirty-one years he served as an Appleton police officer. Some of those years were spent patrolling on a motorcycle with a sidecar. In his retirement, Del enjoyed his parttime job of delivering flowers for Riverside Florist. He was an avid bowler for many years and held many league offices, loved to boat on the Wolf River, played lots of cribbage over the years, and was known to share his wisdom and opinions with his patrons while bartending at the American Legion Club 38.

    Del is survived by his loving wife: Marge Nitzband of Appleton; four children: Yvonne (Jerry) Cagley of Knoxville, Tennessee; Tom (Sue) Nitzband of Appleton; Jim Nitzband of Appleton; and Ann (Jesse) Rankin of Sturgeon Bay; seven grandchildren: Jason Amburn, Shane Huskey, Ashley Lamb, Michael and Tyler Nitzband, and twins Kane and Layla Rankin; two great-grandchildren: Alyssa and Colton; and a brother: Rodney (Helen) Nitzband of Copperas Cove, Texas. He was preceded in death by his parents, six brothers, five sisters, several in-laws, and twin granddaughters Emma and Violet Rankin.

    The funeral liturgy for Del will be held at 11:00 AM on Wednesday, March 18, 2015 at ST. THOMAS MORE CATHOLIC CHURCH, 1810 N. McDonald Street in Appleton, with Fr. Gerald R. Falk officiating. Family and friends are invited to gather at the Wichmann Funeral Home on Tuesday from 4:00 PM until 7:00 PM, and again at the church on Wednesday morning after 10:00 AM. Memories may be shared by visiting www.wichmannfuneralhome.com.

    Del will be buried next to his best friend, Dave Head. They joined the police force at the same time, and are together again, no doubt talking smart and playing cards. Rest in peace, Del. You will be missed.

The Post Crescent newspaper once warned mothers to have their children walk home from school on the opposite side of the street to avoid fights that sometimes broke out in Pekel's Tavern.

    In the mid 1900's the tavern/restuarant was called Blier's Tavern. The Bliers arranged bus trips to Packer football games for their Sunday brunch and dinner customers. (And a good time was had by all) Their son, Rocky Blier, played football at St. Xavier High School. He was wounded in Vietnam and rehabilitated himself to become a star player for the Pittsburgh Steelers.

    In the 1980's, the tavern and restuarant was owned and operated as Trimbee's.
