Michael G. Apple

Michael Glenn Apple, 69, passed away after a long, hard-fought battle with kidney cancer on Thursday, October 5, 2017 at his home in Interlachen, surrounded by his family.

He was born June 9, 1948 in Danville, VA to Ezra and Geneva Apple. He married Nancy Pick on August 3, 1968 and together they raised two sons, Thomas (T.J.) and Josh. After high school, Mike proudly served in the United States Navy and then worked as a marine electrician in Jacksonville, FL until 1988 when he decided to begin a successful career in real estate. In September 2005, he and Nancy retired to their lake property in Interlachen. Here they purchased their first classic car, a 1948 Chevy Aero Sedan and became extremely involved in the local classic car club scene. In 2011, Mike sold the Sedan and bought his dream car, a 1965 Chevy Malibu SS, which became his prized possession. Mike and Nancy enjoyed Classic Car shows, cruise-ins and all the friends they made. He also enjoyed traveling and camping in their RV, boating, motorcycle rides, and spending time with family. Mike was a devoted husband, father, brother, and grandfather.

He was preceded in death by his parents, Ezra and Geneva Apple.

Surviving are his wife Nancy; sons, T.J. (DeAnne) and Josh (Jacqueline); grandsons, Ryan, Ben, and Porter Glenn; and sister, Portia (Tony).

The family will receive friends from 4:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. Sunday, October 8, 2017 at Masters Funeral Home in Palatka, during which time, a prayer will be delivered. Private family burial services will be held in Jacksonville. In lieu of flowers, the family requests memorial donations be made in Mike’s honor to the Rodeheaver Boys Ranch, Inc. at http://rbr.org/donations/ or by mail at 380 Boys Ranch Road Palatka, FL, 32177.
