Lynn L. Ball, 71, of Dubuque, Iowa passed away peacefully on Saturday, June 20, 2020 at Stonehill Care Center, Dubuque.
Lynn was born on March 16, 1949 in Postville, IA son of Marjorie (Sass) and Harold Ball. He graduated from East Dubuque High School. He was drafted into the Army in March 1969. He was stationed in Fort Lewis, Washington where he ranked up to E-5. Lynn was very proud of being a veteran.
Lynn was an over-the-road semi driver for many years, and drove for several national and local trucking companies out of Dubuque.
Lynn really enjoyed the outdoors and nature. He spent many hours sitting on his back deck enjoying the weather. He often enjoyed sharing memories of living in and around Monona, Iowa where he spent many days/weeks staying with his Grandparents (Hubert and Ruth Sass) on their farm. His favorite pastime was attending local dirt track stock car races. He took his Grandson, Adam, to so many of those races and instilled the love of racing in him.
He is survived by 5 Children: Dean (Stephanie) Bush of Dubuque; Dawn (Ken) Leppert of Dubuque; Doran (Shari) Bush of Asbury; Daryl Bush of Dubuque; Deric (Jennifer Siegert) Bush of Dubuque. Ten Grandchildren and 2 Great Grandchildren. He is also survived by 5 Siblings: Vicki (Tom) Houts, Shell Knob, MO; Shari (John) Arthofer, East Dubuque; Neil (Jeanne) Ball, East Dubuque; Ross Ball, East Dubuque, and Cathi (Jeff) Timmerman, Lisbon, Iowa.
He was preceded in death by his parents, and one Uncle, Bob.
The family would like to thank his home health Nurse Stephanie Allen for her care and dedicated friendship for the last 8 wonderful years, Hospice of Dubuque and also Ashleigh and the staff at Stonehill Care Center for all their care and support.
Per his wishes, there will be no visitation. Private family services will be held with his brother-in-law, the Rev. Jeffrey Timmerman officiating. The Leonard Funeral Home and Crematory, 2595 Rockdale Rd. Dubuque, is assisting the family.
