APPLE, Douglas A. Jr., "Dougie", 26, of Dayton died peacefully while surrounded by his loving family on Friday, February 3, 2012. He was preceded in death by his great grandparents, Ada & Raymond Manson, and his grandfather, Herman Apple. He is survived by his loving mom and dad, Douglas A., Sr. and Sheilah E. (Armstrong) Apple, his loving sisters, Megan Apple, Michelle Hinds, Gwynnie Rotramel, Colleen E. Apple, and Bethie Apple, and brothers, Bryan Hinds, Mike Rotramel, and Alex Grunewald. He was the dearest and most beloved uncle of Bryan Douglas, Patrick, & baby-on-the way Isabella Hinds and Elle & Mikey Rotramel, as well as godfather to Patrick & Mikey. Doug was the cherished grandson of Helen Rosalie Apple and Frank & Gwyn Armstrong. Doug is also survived by many loving aunts, uncles, cousins, and a multitude of friends. His family and friends would like to sincerely thank the compassionate doctors, nurses, and medical staff that have taken care of Dougie over the years. He was a parishioner of St. Henry Parish and graduated from Miamisburg High School, class of 2004. He also attended Sinclair Community College, University of Cincinnati, and the University of Phoenix. He was a diligent and dedicated employee of Soft Touch Car Wash and his treasured Kings Island as "The Supe." For 11 years, Doug was a passionate camper, counselor, and director at Camp Ko-Man-She, sponsored by The Dayton Diabetes Association. He was a compassionate role model to young kids with diabetes. Doug was thankful for the "gift of life" and, through skin and tissue donation, was unselfishly able to return that gift to many others. Doug was recognized as an Outstanding Volunteer for Diabetes Dayton. Doug enjoyed maintaining a fleet of Ford Tauruses until he was able to upgrade to his prized Honda Accord "because that's how I roll." He cherished the time he spent in Hilton Head at Kenny B.'s, Flyer games at UD Arena, Dollar Dogs & beers at Reds' games, fun nights out with "The Crew," and especially the time spent with his buddy, Dad. Doug was a fine, young man who showed many people how to live courageously. He will always be in our hearts. The family will receive friends at the TOBIAS FUNERAL HOME-FAR HILLS CHAPEL, 5471 Far Hills Ave. at Rahn Rd. Tuesday, February 7, 2012, from 5 to 8 pm. Mass of Christian Burial, 11am Wednesday, at St. Henry Catholic Church, 6666 Springboro Pike.
Charitable donations can be made in his name to Dayton Children's Medical Center and The Dayton Diabetes Association. In the near future, a scholarship to Camp Ko-Man-She will be established in Dougie's name. DONATE LIFE. Online condolences may be sent to www.tobiasfuneralhome.com.

"Dear Apple Family - Our thoughts and prayers are with your family at this difficult time. We can't imagine what your going through but we wanted you to..."
