Obituary

Robert John Ball died peacefully in Perth, Ontario, on Feb. 23rd, aged 69. He is survived by his wife, Alison (Kerr), two brothers, Rick (Linda) and Ron (Cathy), and sister Julie (Craig Campbell), along with 7 nieces and nephews: Skye, Meaghan, Jesse, Chris, Devon, Jenny and Tess. He is predeceased by his parents, John and Ivy Ball.

He was born in Oakville and grew up as an Army brat in Ottawa, Whitehorse, and Chilliwack, BC. He worked for the Canadian Hydrographic Service as a seaman and hydrographer. In 1978 he and his wife drove to Florida, bought a small sailboat, and lived on it for the next 14 years, alternating between cruising in the Bahamas and working as hydrographers on the Mississippi River and in the Gulf of Mexico. In later years they moved ashore and spent the summers in Canada and winters in Little Harbour, Abaco, a solar powered community in the Bahamas.

Bob was also an amateur radio operator (KC4JVZ/C6ALD), and part time fisherman, electrician, spelunker, harbourmaster and bartender.

A memorial gathering will be held later in the year.

To make a donation in memory of Bob, please adopt a wild animal in his name from the Canadian World Wildlife Fund at wwf.ca.

I am shocked and deeply saddened to read of Bobby's passing. He was such a wonderful child and fascinating adult. Our families saw to it that we now have many warm memories to hold dear. I only wish our generation had stayed as close to eachother as our parents did. To think that Bobby and Allison lived so close to me, but that I didn't even know, makes me feel very ashamed. I have lived in Sharbot Lake for twenty years now. Sharon lived in Almonte, but died suddenly two years ago at age 64. Please won't you get in touch so we can re- establish our relationships. I miss all of you dearly. With love, prayers, and a zillion hugs. "Cousin" Linda MacDonald
