Darl Clift Ball of Port Angeles passed away peacefully at home on March 19, 2013. He was 86 years old.

Darl was born in Los Angeles, California, to Walter Ball and Freda McAllister.

He grew up in Redmond, Washington, and joined the Merchant Marine at 17 years old, sailing until 1952. He then served in the United States Army until 1954, at which point he was honorably discharged.

Darl then returned to the Merchant Marine, ending his service in 1964. Darl then went on to become a commercial rockery contractor until 2000, when he started a boat repair business in the Sequim and Port Angeles areas that he operated until his death.

Darl was a passionate fisherman and crabber who shared many great fishing memories with dear friends and family. Darl loved and lived life to the fullest with no regrets and on his own terms.

His personality was intrepid, kind, generous, nurturing and compassionate with a million-dollar sense of humor. He was loved by all who had been blessed to know him and will be greatly missed by his family and friends.

Until we meet again in heaven, you will remain forever in our hearts.

A celebration of Darl's life will take place on Saturday, April 13, at the Church of Christ, 1233 East Front Street, Port Angeles, at 11 a.m., with a reception to follow.
