Doug Ball, beloved husband of Cheryl, beloved father of Jenelle Hayes and father-in-law of Glen Hayes, passed away on Monday, July 23, 2018, after his courageous battle with cancer.
Doug was very devoted to his family and friends, his community at large and he would always be there for those he loved. Doug loved life and fought every day to survive with such dignity. We were all so very lucky to have Doug in our lives – he made every day richer.
Doug is survived by his brothers and sisters-in-law, Jim and Marilyn, Murry and Charlene, and Rick and Brenda; mother-in-law Jeanette Watson; and sister-in-law Annie Watson (Pam). Doug is also survived by his nieces, Lindsay (Matt), Candice (Steve Lynes), Stephanie (Matt Cox), Kristen (Shawn Benoit), and Danielle (Scott); his nephew Jesse; his great-nieces, London and Adley Cox; and his great-nephew Daxon Benoit.
Doug was predeceased by his parents Jim and Muriel Ball; his father-in-law Charles Watson; as well as many family members who loved him dearly.
