Ball, Robert Alexander - Born October 7th 1931, Robert 'Bob' Alexander Ball passed away peacefully at South Bruce Grey Health Centre the hospital in which he was born, 86 years ago. He will be deeply missed by his wife Rita (Gulliver) of 65 years, Son Steven Ball and predeceased daughter Amanda Alexander (nee Ball). The most incredible grandfather to 5 grandchildren Katrina Smiley (Michael Crossley), Natasha Smiley, RJ Smiley (Alicia Boyd), Ryan Ball (Lauren Killin), Adam Ball. Bob loved sports from the very beginning, a star athlete in Kincardine with record breaking achievements in track and field and a member on many sports teams. He spent many early mornings with his children and grandchildren in arenas all over Ontario for hockey, and figure skating over the years; often delivering whole hockey teams to the Davidson Centre, there are many fond memories of school ski trips, blue jays games and NHL games with his grandkids. Bob and Rita spent 20 years living in Toronto where they worked and started their family. Then returned to Kincardine where they owned and operated a cottage rental business on the lake. Eventually Bob took over his fathers upholstery business and they moved into town. Easygoing by nature, Bob and Rita enjoyed many years of travel together which they later shared with their grandchildren. Flying them south for many holidays together. Always smiling, Bob's humour and wit were always sharp and there was always a hockey or ball game on the television. Rita Ball and family are extremely grateful to Dr. Gary Gerbin and the doctors and nurses, VON, home care nurses, volunteers and friend Katie in Kincardine who tirelessly cared for Bob. Bob was blessed with a beautiful long and healthy life. Cremation has taken place and private graveside service to be determined at a later date. In lieu of flowers, donations in his memory may be made to the MS Society or to a charity of your choice. Kincardine News, ON, 2018-08-02
