BALL, Raymond Eugene
Born March 29, 1932 in Modesto, CA, Ray passed away peacefully from a brief illness on July 27, 2013 with family and loved ones by his side. He is survived by his wife Linda, children Margo (James), Steven (Debra) and David; grandchildren Ryan, Cameron, Nicole and Kristin and several nieces, nephews and cousins. Ray is preceded in death by his parents Walter and Claire, his first wife Marilyn, and younger brothers Rick and Travis. Ray served in the U.S. Air Force after graduating from Modesto High School. He then attended his undergraduate school at The University of the Americas Puebla in Mexico, and obtained his J.D. from McGeorge School of Law in 1971. Ray was truly one of the last gentlemen lawyers. He will be remembered most for his warm smile and kind words to all persons with whom he came in contact with. Ray was a very generous and compassionate man who had a deep faith in God. Ray was an avid golfer who always enjoyed a good 'slice' of life and had an incredible sense of humor and always loved a good joke. His passing has left a huge void in all of our lives. You will be missed dearly but will always remain in our hearts. Please join family and friends for a Memorial Mass held in Ray's honor at Our Lady of the Assumption, located at 5057 Cottage Way in Carmichael, CA 95608 on Wednesday, August 7, 2013, at 1:00 p.m. Arrangements by North Sacramento Funeral Home.
