Obituary of Thomas Clifford Ball
Ball, Thomas Clifford.
March 30, 1942 - January 5, 2019
Tom Passed away peacefully with his daughters by his side at Soldiers Memorial Hospital in Orillia at the age of 76.
Beloved father of Lori Sweeney(David) and Janet Wyant (Ron).
Proud Grandfather to the late David MacBurnie (Caitlin), Jonathon Haste, Brittany Wyant (Matt), and Taylor Wyant (Chris).
Dear brother to The late Ronnie Ball (Marion), late Bill Ball(Gail), Jim Ball (late Donna) and late Donna Bray (Larry).
Special Uncle to Allan, Steve, Mike, Don and Doug Ball.
Dear friend and neighbour to Joe Tanner. Lovingly nicknamed the TBall. Tom will be missed and remembered by all his family and friends.
An executive chef, Tom was proud of his 42 years at the Sundial.
Tom enjoyed his work and he worked hard; but Tom also loved the people. Many of Toms life long friendships came from people he met at the Sundial.
Tom also enjoyed working with young people, teaching them the value of hard work. In Tom’s retirement it was rare that while out and about in town he did not run into someone he once worked with, or a parent of one of the kids who worked for him. He was the kind of person you never forgot and genuinely loved catching up with.
A reception to celebrate Tom’s life will be held the Simcoe Funeral Home, 38 James Street E. Orillia on Friday January 11th, 2019 from 4 p.m. until 7p.m.
