Not sure what to say?

He was the best manager we've ever had at C&P! He was a loving guy who truly liked his employees. They don't make them like him anymore. He was a sweetheart of a guy!

So sorry to hear about Mr Ball's passing. He worked as my Director at Bell Atlantic when we were located in Beltsville and I so enjoyed our daily interactions. I also loved seeing him on the field at Redskin Stadium and have thought of him fondly over the years since his retirement. Such a delightful man who will be greatly missed by family and friends.

Dear Family of Billy Ball,
my father John Quirk worked at C&P Tel.
and knew the family. My father took
us to performances of the Quartet, etc.,and my father went to Redskins
games with many C&P colleagues.
I was glad to attend the memorial 7/19
and sorry to not be able to attend the
Asbury event. Would like to meet you all.

Billy Ball was a prince of good will, a gentleman of the first order, and a gentle man overall. In my 35 years with the Redskins Marching Band, I never heard Billy utter a negative word. He exuded tolerance and compasson toward all. Seeing him at rehearsals and events was always reassuring, even in difficult times. I miss you. Say hello to all our erstwhile colleagues.

The only way I can express my feelings for Billy is to say "there is a big hole in my heart that will never be filled" I will always remember you. God is looking forward to your presence.

Billy was one of the best Grandfather's a person could ask for. He always put a smile on my face and made me feel loved. I will truly miss him.

Billy was a true friend and a loyal Redskins Fan God Rest his soul.

As a member of the Washington Redskins Marching Band, it was my honor to be associated with this true "Gentlemen". He was not only a friend and associate to me but also to my wife. We will truly miss him and his enduring smile. Billy, thanks for all of the wonderful memories you have given to me and all of the Band Members that have had the privilege of working with you over these many years.
