Obituary for James "Jim" Leroy Apple
Jim (Age 60) passed away unexpectedly August 31, 2017. He was born in Spokane, July 28, 1957 and lived his entire life here; remaining close to the friends he grew up with. His fondest, earlier memories were camping & fishing with friends. More recently he enjoyed adventures with family: trips to the Washington coast, Sandpoint, and going to vintage car & boat shows. He worked various jobs including boat manufacturing, before becoming disabled. One of his favorite jobs was at an auto auction. Jim always found humor in every situation; always looking for laughter and to make others laugh. We can still hear his catch phrase "Matter of fact" followed by the thought on his mind at the moment. So, "Matter of fact Jim, it just won't be the same without you, our beloved brother, uncle and friend.
Jim is preceded in death by his parents Clyde and Roberta Apple and niece Angelique Burrell. He is survived by his brothers Ron and Bob Apple, sister Peggy Burrell, niece Nichole Crosby (Ed), nephew Ryan Apple (Erica and son Aaron). His Memorial Service will be held Friday, September 29, at 12:30pm at Pines Cemetery, 1402 S Pines Rd., Spokane Valley, WA. Jim would encourage casual dress.
