Glen Lee Ball

Blessed & Highly Favored

Glen Lee Ball age 86 of Pine Knot, Kentucky passed from this life on Friday, April 2, 2021 at the Saint Joseph Hospital in London, Kentucky.

He was born September 29, 1934 in McCreary County, Kentucky to the late Lark Ball and Mary (Hamblin) Ball.

Preceding him in death are his parents, brothers, Everett Ball, Arthur Ball, Bobby Ball, and Don L. Ball, and sisters, Fay Ball, Lora Ball, and Lois Ball.

On December 23, 1955 he was united in marriage to his wife, Bonnie June (Neal) Ball. The marriage brought forth two sons, Gary Ball (and Shellie) of Williamsburg, Kentucky, Gregory Ball (and Debbie) of Louisville, Kentucky, and two daughters, Donna Ball Keith (and Fitz) of Strunk, Kentucky and Gina Ball Morris (and Kevin) of Louisville, Kentucky.

Glen and Bonnie were also blessed with 16 grandchildren, Tonya Neal, BJ Johns (and Courtney), Joshua Keith (and Jessica), Michelle Keith Wright (and Andrew), Avie Keith, Jada Keith, Jeremy Ball (and Kristin), Nikki Ball Irvin (and Ben), Leah Ball Jones (and Ken), Michael Ball (and Nicole), Matthew Morris (and Christina), Adam Morris (and Candis), Miya Ball, Hannah Ball, Desi Ball, and Shayna Ball; several great-grandchildren; and great-grandchildren, Jace and one on the way.

Glen is also survived by his brothers, Archie Ball of Waycross, Georgia, Ronald Ball (and Reva) of Pine Knot, and Leamon Ball (and Linda) of Williamsburg; sisters, Betty Ball Filipovich (and Jim) of Western, Kentucky, Virgie Ball King of Pine Knot, Dorella Ball Watters of Stearns, and Bonnie Sue Ball Marcum (and Ralph) of Pine Knot; and a host of cousins, nephews, nieces, and friends that he loved so dearly.

Glen was a man of integrity. He loved his Heavenly Father and was at church every time the doors were open, if at all possible. He loved everyone and never met a stranger. Glen loved his family and loved their get togethers playing games and talking about the Bible. Glen will be sadly missed by all who knew and loved him. We can only imagine what a joyous reunion when he walked through those pearly gates.

Funeral service will be held on Wednesday, April 7, 2021 at 1:00 pm in the chapel of Pine Knot Funeral Home with Bro. Richard Ussery, Bro. Carl Brock, and Bro. Ralph Marcum officiating. Burial will follow in the Ball Family Cemetery. The family will receive friends of visitation on Tuesday evening from 6:00 until 9:00 pm at the funeral home.

Pine Knot Funeral Home is assisting the family with funeral arrangements.

What a blessing he was to Al and I. He never had a word of discouragement even as he watched Al go from cane to walker and he had the faith to stand up and say God moved in behalf of Al and that is so true. I am sure the two of them have lots of catching up to do in heaven. Never a dull moment with Glen and the love he had for Bonnie was wonderful. He was a God fearing man but was always there to pray and lift you up when needed. He will live on forever in my memories and I send Bonnie and the family my love and prayers as we wait to be with them again.
