Ludwig F. Apel passed away on December 4, 2013. Born in Cologne, Germany moved to Colombia where he met the love of his life, started his own business and family, later he decided to move again to the United States where he retired and spent time with his grandchildren. A wonderful husband, father, opa, friend will be missed by all of us. He was always there when we needed him, brought happiness and joy wherever he went, his strength and willingness to overcome any obstacles taught us many values that will remain with us forever. His journey in life will always stay in our hearts and will be cherished until we meet him in heaven again for sure. Funeral arrangements by Kraeer Funeral Home in Boca Raton, FL.
