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 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.
