I had the pleasure of meeting Del when he came to his weekly cribbage tournaments at the Stone Toad. I always looked forward to his bright smile, fiesty conversation and how he lovingly talked about his twin grandbabies. He was a sweet man, who will be missed by many.

Saying goodbye to an old friend today. I encourage everyone to read about Del's life. Not everyone gets a write up like this. His was a life well lived, filled with accolades well deserved. For nearly 2 decades I could look forward to his smiling face every wed night at Sabre Lanes. Dishing it out to us young punks, continuing long after our youth left us. Of all the smiles, it was a difficult day I remember the most. The day we laid Bob Bergner to rest. Our team/family was hurting bad and that night started the healing with the heartfelt support of Del and many others. Spring always meant the election of league officers, perfect that this officer heads into the warmth and light of his chair earned long ago. Thanks for your service, for keeping our dark alleys safe, and our bowling alleys fun. Godspeed and party on my friend. - Kent "Doc" Maichle

Marge, Deb and I are so sorry to hear of your loss. Nitz was a good man as well as a good Cop and friend. Deb will miss all the hugs she got from Del. Were in Florida so we won't be able to attend the funeral. Del and I had a special relationship through bowling and me taking all his night shifts and Del taking all my day shifts.

Del thanks for all of the words of bowling wisdom and the walks up to my room during the state tournament-Louie.

Peace of mind is a call away. We're here when you need us most.
