Robert (Bob) Ball, 75, of Henderson, Nev., passed away March 15, 2022, from natural causes. Bob is survived by his wife, Karen Ball of Henderson, Nev.; two children, Kelly (Ray) Boyle of Chicago, Ill., and Robb (Michelle) Ball of Orono, Minn.; and five grandchildren, Sean, Jack, Cait, Sammy and Hailey. He was preceded in death by his parents; and two sisters. Bob was born on Aug. 16, 1946, in Pueblo, Colo. He was the second child of six and attended Pueblo South High School. Bob married the love of his life, Karen, in 1964. He played basketball and received a bachelor's degree in engineering from the Colorado School of Mines in 1968. Upon graduating from CSM, he went to work for Alcan Aluminum as a Staff Engineer in Riverside, Calif. Alcan was Bob's first job out of college. He worked for the company for 33 years, making friends, taking care of people, innovating, changing, traveling the globe and steadily rising through the organization to eventually lead all of Europe, the technology world and leaving the company as a revered leader. Bob and Karen retired to a ranch on the North Fork of the Shoshone River in Cody, Wyo., (by the north entrance of Yellowstone), and eventually came to Henderson, Nev., in 2010. Bob was joyful, kind, gregarious, remarkably intelligent, curious, incredibly hard-working, wise, generous beyond reason, family-centered and tough. He was a doer, a lifelong learner, reading newspapers from all perspectives and countries on most mornings. His ideas were always interesting, extensive and uniquely Bob's. He loved to read, hang out with friends, hunt, fish, golf, drive his truck, follow the wolves in Yellowstone, hang out with his animals, watch sports, eat wings, drink beer, travel and he loved a good party. Most of all, he enjoyed spending time with Karen. Bob and Karen doted on their grandchildren. They hosted the kids for weeks at a time on the ranch and in Las Vegas, traveled to events, planned experiences, hosted vacations, rushed to support the kids and family during any crisis and never missed a family Christmas. Bob rarely met anyone he didn't like, or who didn't fall in love with him quickly. He was a son, brother, husband, father and friend to many, and literally couldn't say a bad word about anyone. He will truly be missed! Memorial service, 11 a.m. on March 21, 2022, held at the Dragon Ridge Country Club, Henderson, Nev. Join us to celebrate the life of Bob Ball, life well-lived and loved.

Lester Garrett's Celebration of Life Memorial Service was held on Saturday, November 2, 2019, at the Imperial Gardens Funeral Home on the Beulah Highway at 2:00 P.M.  Following the service, a military tribute in his honor took place.  Everyone who attended was invited to join in at a reception at the Courtyard Marriott at City Center.  To see pictures from Lester's service, click on this button.
