David Nitz

May 21, 1950 — June 22, 2024

David A. Nitz, age 74, passed away Saturday, June 22, 2024, at Bethel Home in Oshkosh, WI. He was born to the late John and Nina (Meyer) Nitz on May 21, 1950, in Oshkosh, WI. Dave was baptized, confirmed and married to Linda Hangartner at Peace Lutheran in Oshkosh, and later became a member of Grace Lutheran Church in Berlin. He graduated from Oshkosh High School and then served two years stationed in Kaiserslautern, Germany with the US Army. Dave studied architecture at North Central Wisconsin Technical College and began working as a building inspector in 1969, first in Oshkosh and later in Neenah, Ripon, Berlin, North Fond du Lac, Rosendale, and Eldorado. He took much pride in his certifications and knowledge of all things pertaining to residential and commercial building codes. He even used his architecture skills to design and build an addition onto the family's Berlin home as well as a backyard playhouse for his daughters; 2 stories with a porch, plumbing and electric. It can be said that Dave never did anything halfway.


He enjoyed camping with his family in Wisconsin Dells and taking family fishing trips up to Ontario. He loved the outdoors and spending time as a family around the campfire. Earlier in life he enjoyed playing and coaching softball and playing in the Oshkosh horseshoe league. Later in life, he was a true armchair athlete cheering on the Packers and the Brewers. He was a fierce cribbage player with his late brother Chuck.


Dave is survived by his wife, Linda Nitz; children, Julianna Nitz, Caroline (Kyle Thorpe) Nitz, and Callie (Marc Smith) Nitz; siblings, Judy Anderson, and Jeff Nitz; nieces and nephews; in laws, Pat Nitz, LaVonne (Mark Vanderlin) Burow, Lyle (Jenny) Hangartner, and LuAnn (Mickey) Karst.


In addition to his parents, Dave was preceded in death by his son, Jason Nitz; siblings Sharon Nitz, Sonny (Gerry) Nitz, Marilyn (Jim) Wiles, Pete (Barbara) Nitz, Chuck Nitz; nephews Mike Nitz, Mike Karst, in laws, Chuck Anderson, Mary Nitz, Tom Burow, and Melvin (Jean) Hangartner.
