Danny Harold Ball passed away surrounded by loved ones at the age of 63 in his home in Libby on Sunday morning, Jan. 27, 2019. He was born to Geneva Ball and Francis Ball on Nov. 9, 1955. He was married to Rebecca Ball and the father of four boys.
Dan Ball and Rebecca Ball were lovingly married for 42 years. Dan Ball stood as a pillar of his family and was a true testament of commitment. Danny was a beacon for many people and had sacrificed to help others throughout his lifetime. There were people that referred to him as “honest man Dan.”
He was a loving and committed father of four sons, one of which passed away at birth. He taught his boys the meaning of hard work and commitment. He did this by example; taking care of his family was his number one priority in life.
He and his wife Becky operated a successful business for over 20 years, serving many of our community. Sometimes when people were in need, they would extend credit or even work by donation. They were also known for donating entire jobs to charitable organizations to be auctioned off to support their community, which was very important to them.
Dan Ball was a man that would stand up in the face of evil things. He would always be willing to fight for his friends and family. He loved deeply, was loved dearly and was a very committed man. Words on a page could never fully describe the level of love that his family has for him. He will truly be missed.
He is preceded in death by his momma Geneva Ball, dad Francis Ball, brother Albert “Lee” Ball, brother William “Bill” Stevens, sister Jacky Hodge and his son Leroy Ball.
He is survived by his wife Rebecca Ball, sons Luther Ball, Jimmy Ball, William “Willy” Ball; along with grandchildren Leeroy Ball, Keigan Ball, Dawson Ball, Christopher Qualls, Connie Fleck, Christian Dewine, Nolan Dewine, Hallie Hendrickson and “little miss Haillle”; great-grandchildren Corine Spain, Christopher Qualls, Mathew Qualls, Khloe Qualls and Kala Fleck; also By Debra Ball, Brenda Ball, Shannon Dewine and many other family and friends.

We had a phrase that we would always say as a testament to our commitment to each other, one of us would say “To The River” And the other would follow with “To The End My Friend.”
“To The River”
We love you dad
