Charles Harold Ball, 69, of Benton entered Heaven’s gates on Saturday, July 28.
He was born in El Paso, Texas, on Feb. 7, 1943. He graduated from Central High School and attended Little Rock University (now UALR). He proudly served his country in the U.S. Airborne Army. Charles retired from Lucent Technologies after 34 years of service.
