Passed away suddenly at his home on Saturday September 13, 2014. Charlie Ball of Lakefield in his 70th year. Charlie leaves behind his devastated and sad family; wife Judy (McIlwain), daughter Sherri Ball (Shawn) and sons Greg Ball (Jennifer) and Kevin Ball (Denise).

Sadly missed by his sister Carol Wingett (Len), brothers Ross Mace (the late Cathy) and Dale Mace (the late Sharon), mother-in-law Margaret McIlwain, brothers-in-law Rick McIlwain (Linda), Terry McIlwain (El) and sister-in-law Diane Tait. We lost a great man, far too early in his life. He was loving and caring to all who knew him as well as an amazing husband, father, grandfather, brother and son-in-law.
