Ball, Fred S. - Salt Lake City  
Fred S. Ball "Giant in our City" The poet wrote: "Here and there, and now and then, God makes a giant among men." Fred S. Ball was a giant. A giant to his family; a giant in his professions, and a "Giant in our City." It is with broken hearts that we announce the passing of our dear husband, father, grandfather and great-grandfather. Fred S. Ball was born in Ogden, Utah on September 29, 1932, a son of Fred S. Ball, Sr., and Gladys Thornton Ball. He died on August 25, 2015 of natural causes. For 25 years he served as the president and chief executive officer of the Salt Lake Area Chamber of Commerce. He was honored as "A Giant in our City" at his retirement dinner in 1995. He was commonly referred to as "Mr. Utah" and was recognized as a great champion of the State of Utah and a strong proponent of the free enterprise system. Fred graduated from Ogden High School, Weber State College, (where he served as Student Body President), the University of Utah and the Stanford Graduate School of Business. He holds Honorary Doctor of Humanities degrees from Weber State University and Salt Lake Community College. Westminster College presented him with its Presidential Award for his service on their board and as commencement speaker in 2003. Fred excelled in three business careers. He joined IML Freight, (Interstate Motor Lines) at the age of 21 and served in management positions in Ogden, San Francisco and Oakland, California and Salt Lake City. He left the truck line in 1970 to become President of the Chamber. The decades of the '70's, 80's and 90's were glory years for the business community in the state under his joyful leadership. He retired from the chamber on the 25th anniversary of his service. Major accomplishments of Ball's service to the community included the bringing of the Utah Jazz to Salt Lake City from New Orleans and the successful bid for the 2002 Winter Olympic Games. He was at center court to toss the ball for the opening tip-off of the first NBA game in the Salt Palace and served as Mayor of the Olympic Village during the 2002 games. After he retired from the Chamber, he joined Zions Bank in January 1996 and loved the new opportunities as a Senior Vice President. As always, he was excited to begin a challenging new career even at the age of 63. He developed many lasting friendships with the bank family. His radio broadcast, Zions Bank's "Fred Ball, Speaking on Business," was heard daily on 14 Utah and 10 Idaho stations. Over the next 25 years, Fred's distinctive voice became widely known and recognized as he was heard on Utah and Idaho radio stations. Fred met the love of his life in an elevator at ZCMI and he never let go. Joyce Worsencroft and Fred were married on July 2, 1953 in the Salt Lake Temple, Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. They were best friends and made a great partnership in every aspect of life. They traveled extensively and visited over 30 countries around the world. Fred's life revolved around his family. His four daughters, their husbands, grandchildren and great-grandchildren were the light of his life and he relished every opportunity to do things as "the thundering herd." Fred also served on over 40 corporate and community boards. He was very active with the Utah Symphony, Ballet West, Utah Museum of Natural History, ZCMI Department Stores, Weber State University Board of Trustees, Dick Simon Trucking Co., KSL Radio & TV Board, American Red Cross, Junior Achievement, American Cancer Society and many others. He served as president of the American Trucking Association, California Trucking Association, Willow Creek Country Club, and Chairman, Utah Air Travel Commission, Chairman Host Committee, Sundance Film Festival, Chairman, Olive Castle Foundation and numerous others. He was an avid gardener and golfer. He enjoyed his regular golf games with the "Bill Gibbs Group" at the Salt Lake Country Club. He served as a member of the board of The Country Club and also served as President of Willow Creek Country Club. Fred was always active and involved in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. He served as Bishop, Bishop's Counselor, High Counselor, a member of the General Sunday School Board, the Assistant Director of Church Hosting, and as a Gospel Doctrine Teacher. To say we will miss him is to underestimate our sorrow. While nothing will ever be quite the same, we will all draw on his example and cling to each other in the love he taught us. Fred is survived by his wife, Joyce, and four daughters, Kathryn (Mark) Van Wagoner. Kristine (Richard) Dibblee, Kimberly (John) Dahlstrom, and Karalyn (Howard) Diederich, all of Salt Lake City; and, fifteen grandchildren and eight great-grandchildren. He is also survived by a sister, Vikki (George) Moellendorf, West Haven, Utah. He was preceded in death by his father, his mother, and a sister, Joan (Milt) Bachman. A visitation will be held at Larkin Sunset Lawn, 2350 East, 1300 South, Salt Lake City, UT, on Sunday, August 30, 2015 between 5 and 8 PM.

Beall, Robert Bob - Salt Lake City  
Robert "Bob" Benton Beall 1927 - 2015 Robert (Bob) Benton Beall, surrounded by his family, passed away peacefully at the age of 88 in his Salt Lake City home on August 25, 2015. On July 2nd Bob suffered a hemorrhagic stroke. We thought we had lost him, but in true Bob fashion he fought hard and gave us 7 more weeks to love and spoil him. Bob was born June 27, 1927 to Vernon Eugene Beall and Blanche Louise Baker Twomey in Billings, Montana. He is survived by his wife, Wendy Walker Beall; his seven children: Kristi (Mike), Brad (Debra), Kirk (Jenn), Shannon (Steve), Rachel (John), Robb, and Tori (Hayward); his 22 grandchildren, one great-grandchild, and his sister Barb Thorpe. Linda, his sister, preceded him in death. Bob was an entrepreneur, soldier, public school teacher, and family man. Bob owned and ran the Cody radio station KODI, as well as A-Bell communications. He served his country in WWII and the Korean War. He enjoyed a long career as an educator and as the Executive Director of Granite Education Association. To build memories for his children, Bob purchased a family boat that he did not know how to operate. We all looked forward to the annual family boating treks to Lake Powell. He was able to continue this tradition with his family for the last week of his life. (A quick study, he did learn to drive the boat!) Bob taught his children the importance of love, loyalty, and equality. He was passionate about his family and his beliefs, both religious and political, donating time and money to organizations such as Literacy Action and the LDS Church. Family and friends are invited to attend a Memorial Service celebrating his life on Monday, August 31 at noon in the Yalecrest Ward House: 1035 South 1800 East. A viewing will be held Sunday in the same location, August 30th from 6:00 to 8:00 PM, and again Monday the 29th at 10:30 AM preceding the funeral services. Bob will be interred at Larkin Sunset Lawn. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Utah Literacy Action Center. Additional information at www.larkinmortuary.com

Bateman, Joy Ann Player - Taylorsville  
1930 ~ 2015 A joyous reunion took place on Saturday, August 22, 2015, when Joy joined her loved ones waiting for her beyond the veil. Those left behind will treasure times spent with "Grandma Joy". We are all grateful she can now run, dance, sew, bake, and remember the important events of her life. Joy Ann Player Bateman was born May 16, 1930, in Murray, Utah to Charles Leo and Blanche Baguley Player of Bennion, Utah. Joy grew up in a loving home with three brothers and three sisters during the years of the great depression. Their family bonds were strong and the large family grew together as they struggled to survive the hard times. Joy was a talented musician who was the ward organist in the Bennion Ward at the age of 14; she also played the trumpet in school. She attended Plymouth Elementary and Granite High School, where she graduated in 1948. Her accomplished sewing skills won her a full ride scholarship to college but she chose a different course in life. On August 17, 1948, Joy married Earl Ray Bateman of West Jordan, Utah in the Salt Lake Temple. Together they raised their four children on a dairy farm in West Jordan before moving to Rupert, Idaho in 1970. They later divorced. In 1981, Joy moved back to Taylorsville, Utah, to be near her family where she spent the next 32 years of her life. Joy was full of life and energy! She was an excellent seamstress and spent hours sewing for family and friends. Cooking Sunday family dinners of pot roast, mashed potatoes, and chocolate pie was her specialty. In addition, her brownies were in high demand by her grandchildren. During her later years, she made quilts and crocheted around blankets and burp bibs for all the new babies born into the family. She was an example of Christ like love. This meant that she was a friend to everyone. Joy leaves behind a legacy of kindness and endless service, always thinking of others. Everyone who met her felt that they were the most important person in the world. Joy had a burning testimony of the gospel of Jesus Christ and shared it with all she met. She was a lifelong member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. She served in the Primary, Relief Society and the Young Woman organizations where she influenced many. For eight years she was a receptionist at the Jordan River Temple. While living in the Taylorsville Stake, she served as a Stake missionary. Joy is survived by her son, Michael (Sue) Bateman; daughters Jill (Larry) Danley, Jolene (Kent) Tanner and Cindy (Craig) Caldwell; a sister, Pat Vincent; 18 grandchildren (2 deceased) and 47 great-grandchildren. Funeral services will be held Saturday, August 29, 2015, 11:00 a.m., at McDougal Funeral Home, 4330 South Redwood Road, Taylorsville, Utah. Viewings for family and friends will be held, Friday, August 28, 2015, 6-8:00 p.m., and one hour prior to the service, 10-10:45 a.m., at McDougal Funeral Home. Interment, Taylorsville City Cemetery. The family would like to extend our deepest gratitude to the staff at Ashford Memory Care and Brighton Hospice for the loving care they gave to our mom, grandmother and great-grandmother. We would also like to thank the branch presidency and members of the Wild Rose Branch who gave so much unselfish service to her.
