John Douglas “Doug” Temple, age 69, of Celina, passed away after a brief illness on Friday, January 29, 2016.

He was born July 15, 1946 in Celina to the late Theo and Marjorie (Herman) Temple.  On June 14, 1969, he married the love of his life, Patricia (Patty) Sommer at Immaculate Conception, Celina and she survives in Celina. 

He is survived by his three daughters, Heather Lampy and her fiancé Jeff McDermitt, of Celina, Carrie and Brad Blumberg of Marysville, OH and Shannon and Brian Strohl of Flower Mound, TX.  He also leaves behind four grandchildren, Tyler Lampy, Anna and Jack Blumberg and Mara Strohl.  He is survived by his siblings, Janelda & Ted Elsass, Cheryl Davis, Peter Kent & Jane Temple, Gregg & Cynthia Temple, Michele Temple & Lisa Bridge; Dale & Paulette Sommer, Jane & Bob Schmitz, Steve & Marlene Sommer, Linda & Ritch McAdams, Tom & Julie Sommer; many nieces and nephews and many friends, including Kita and Joey  Noggler and Bob Mills.

He is preceded in death by his in-laws, Andy and Sally Sommer and sister in-law Nancy Sommer

Doug graduated from Immaculate Conception High School and Wright State University and was a member of Immaculate Conception Church in Celina.  He was a teacher and coach at IC High School before moving into the financial industry.  He spent 30 years at Mercer Savings Bank where he served as President until his retirement in 2011 and continued as a Board Member until his passing.  He was a Knight of Columbus, a member of the Grand Lake Development Corporation, Rotary Club, Eagles, American Legion, Moose Lodge, Ohio Bankers Association.

He loved watching sports, especially UD Flyers basketball, Ohio High School basketball tournaments, Buckeye football and the Celina Bulldogs sports of all kinds.  He loved to travel with his family, play cards and read crime novels, especially those by Vince Flynn.   He and Patty visited all 50 states together during their 46 years of marriage, finishing their quest last summer.  He will forever be remembered for his calm demeanor and dry sense of humor.

Doug’s loving and generous spirit continues to touch lives. It was his desire that when he passed on, if he could help improve or even save someone's life by organ donation, we would honor and respect his wishes.
