Donald Appel Obituary
Donald Appel, age 83, of Atlanta died on June 12, 2018. Don was born and raised in Brooklyn, NY. He attended West Virginia University, but adopted the teams of his children and grandchildren, so he also rooted for the University of Florida, University of Virginia, University of Michigan and Tulane. He was a former member of the board of directors of the Atlanta Apparel Mart and of the Winmark Franchisee Advisory Board, the latter of which gave him an opportunity to mentor other entrepreneurs, which he loved. Don's early career was in sales and manufacturing; the last 16 years he was a small business owner, owning and operating two Plato's Closet stores. His greatest joy was his family. He is survived by his wife of 60 years, Norma Feinberg Appel, Atlanta, son and daughter-in-law, Larry and Caren Appel, Greensboro, NC, daughter and son-in-law, Karen and Chuck Kaplan, Atlanta, brothers and sisters-in-law, Bob and Helen Appel, Manhattan, NY and Joel and Kathy Appel, Scotch Plains, NJ, and grandchildren, Molly, Becca, Michael, Hallie, and Jonah. Sign on-line guestbook: www.edressler.com. Graveside services will be held 4:30 pm, today, June 13 at Greenwood Cemetery with Rabbi Hillel Konigsburg officiating. In lieu of flowers, contributions may be made to the Innovative Oncology Fund, c/o Dr. Mary Jo Lechowicz at the Winship Cancer Center, 1365 Clifton Road, Atlanta, Georgia 30322.
