It is with great sadness that the family of Charles Arlen Ball is announcing his death on December 18, 2021, at the age of 68.
He was born on August 17, 1953.
Our husband, father, brother, grandfather, great grandfather, father-in-law, stepfather, uncle, and friend was an amazing individual.
He served in the Army, drove for Winkler’s and was a supervisor at Dubois Wood.
Charlie loved his family. He allowed and encouraged shenanigans among us all. He was a “Gunsmoke” lovin’, Budweiser drinkin’, Dallas Cowboy cheerin’, Beatles listenin’ sweetheart of a man who will be loved and forever missed by us.
He was preceded in death by his parents, Wilbur Arlen and Lydia (Childress) Ball; a brother-in-law, Jeffrey Stone; and a son-in-law, Eric Doan.
He is survived by his wife, Sandy (Edgin) Ball; daughters, Angie Doan and Penny (Scott) Fortune; a stepdaughter, April (Derek) Daniel; and a stepson, Adam (Brianna) Rager; grandchildren, Laine Fortune and Zachrey (Erica) Fortune, Sarah Doan and Michael Doan; step-grandchildren, Noah Daniel and Aubrey Daniel; and two great-granddaughters, McKenna Fortune and Emersyn Fortune; sister, Diana Stone; nephews, Jarrod (Jenny) Stone and JT (Missy) Stone; great-niece, Ashley Stone.
Our favorite quote from Charlie- “I should just keep quiet, but I don’t.”
Military Honors will be conducted at 1 p.m. CST on Saturday, January 8, 2022, at the American Legion Post 444 in Dale with a celebration of Charlie’s life immediately following, also at the Legion.
