Dr. Timothy Ball, a great and courageous man, passed away on September 24, 2022.  We shall all miss him.

Anthony Watts (Watts up with that) wrote:

“This was sent to me by the Ball family Saturday evening. See note that follows.

It is with deep grief that we announce the passing of Dr. Timothy Ball. Tim made his end of life transition Sept 24th with his wife of over 60 years at his side, holding his hand.

At Tim’s request there will be no public service.

Our family will gather privately to celebrate Tim’s life together in the beautiful home he built with his wife, at the table that we had the blessing to have shared many meals together. One of Tim’s great joys was sitting back to watch his family talk, laugh & enjoy each others company. We will raise our glasses to toast the incredible man we all deeply love.

In Lieu of flowers or gifts the family requests that you join them in raising a glass in honour of Tim.

During this difficult time we ask that all communications be directed to: generalistjournal@gmail.com

Thank you,

The Ball Family”

The Ontario Landowners had a special relationship with Tim. He wrote frequently for the Landowner Magazine and later for the Landowner Voices online magazine.

A few years ago, Tom and Marlene Black spent an afternoon with Tim in Victoria BC, touring the city.

Marlene, editor of the Landowner Voices, will be writing a tribute to Tim for the next edition of the magazine. Watch for it towards the end of the end of October.
