J. Linzy â€œLinâ€ Ball, Jr., passed to eternal life in the arms of Jesus on Sunday, August 4, 2019. Lin was a Christian man who loved the Lord. He had an incredible, sometimes quirky and unusual, sense of humor that became his mantra. He was a self-taught master jeweler and watchmaker. He was a Navy veteran and proud American. He made friends wherever he went. Lin was a loving and protective husband to Paulette, his wife of 31 years. He loved being a dad to his children, Chrisi (Turcotte), Wes, Pam (Gulczewski) and Jamie (Cooper), as well as his â€œchildren-in-lawâ€ Jennifer (Ball) Joe (Gulczewski) and Fabian (Cooper), and they all loved him. He felt very blessed to be â€œPaâ€ to his 8 Grandchildren and 3 Great-Grandchilden. He loved his sister, Rowena (McCombs) with whom he had a special bond. While his nieces and nephews were all very special to him, he so appreciated Lisa (Ball), who became his friend and caregiver as well. We know he is back with his father and mother, Linzy and June, his brother, Kevin, and his grandsons, Roman and Zye, all of whom predeceased him. He left us all with many memories and an empty place in our hearts.
