Leonard R. "Lenny" Ball, 70, of Pen Argyl, passed away Saturday, April 3, 2021, at his residence.
Born at Easton Hospital, November 23, 1950, he was the son of the late Leon R. and Philomena Ball.
After graduating from Pen Argyl High School in 1968, Leonard served in the US National Guard for 6 years.
Leonard was retired from R. R. Cortazzo and had also worked part time at Borger Speedway and East Penn Auto Sales. He was a member of the former St. Rochs Catholic Church, West Bangor.
Leonard was an avid race fan, attending many NASCAR, Indy and Sprint Car races with his buddies. When it came to anything about racing, he was the "Guru." His favorite band was the Ramones.
We have been blessed with the presence of Leonard in our lives. He will be deeply missed by his sister, Susan M. Miller and her husband Fred of Albrightsville, PA, his nephew, David A. Harvey of York, SC, and many cousins.

What a friendly guy, always had a moment to stop for a chat. Will remember him as one of the Park Hill gang. An avid dirt track and Nascar fan, and worked pit crew for many. My thoughts and prayers go with you to the awesome track in the sky.

We will miss seeing you next door, and talking about which race you are going to, or which ones you have seen recently. It will be lonely over there; your garage door will be closed, and you won't be walking towards it saying "Hi!". Rest In Peace, Lenny.
