Scott Wade Ball, 60, of Cross Plains, TN, passed away on March 31, 2023.
Scott was known for his larger-than-life personality and the fact that he never met a stranger. His kind-hearted and thoughtful nature has left a lasting impact on his community and touched so many lives along the way.
Scott was born on April 27, 1962, and spent his formative years in San Antonio, Texas. He graduated from Churchill High School in 1980 and received his bachelor’s degree from The University of Texas at San Antonio in 1986. Scott completed an executive MBA program from the University of North Texas in 2002 and had a 30+ year career in sales and marketing.
Scott married his wife, Elizabeth, on December 1, 2007, in Kerrville, Texas. They spent their 15+ year marriage traveling all over the world, enjoying live bluegrass music and making countless memories with their three daughters, sons-in-law, and grandchildren (who called Scott, Opa). Scott and Elizabeth also built strong friendships and community in Kerrville, San Antonio, and the greater Nashville area.
Scott had the heart of a servant. He was an elder in the Presbyterian church and gave his time and energy to numerous nonprofits, including CASA, Habitat for Humanity, Room at the Inn, Westminster Home Connection, Make a Wish, various mission trips, and many more.
Scott is survived by his wife Elizabeth, daughters Alexis and Whitney from his first marriage, step-daughter Alyssa, son-in-laws Alexander and Zachary, grandchildren Sophia, Adeline, and Violet, and his sister and her husband Liz and George, as well as additional family and friends.
Scott is preceded in death by his mother, Helen Ball, and father, Davis “Doc” Ball, grandmother Helen Franz and grandfather, George Franz, and parents-in-law, William and Alice Hague.
A memorial service will be held at Westminster Presbyterian Church in Nashville, TN, on Wednesday, April 12, at 3 pm. In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations be made to CASA of Robertson County, Room at the Inn of Nashville, and Westminster Home Connection.
Arrangements entrusted to the Anderson Funeral Home, 202 E. Main Street, Gallatin.
