Eldan Emrys Andrew Jeremy Ball passed away following a long illness on August 6, 2019 at Virginia Mason Medical Center in Seattle, WA.
Eldan was born on Bainbridge Island on January 6, 1989. A true Island native, he grew up on the Rock and graduated from Bainbridge High School in 2007. He was a natural athlete and avid sports fan. He spent his youth on the local fields, courts, and baseball diamonds and joined the Warriors Baseball Team when he attended Walla Walla Community College. He loved the camaraderie and competitive spirit of team sports and his passion for Seattle professional teams was legendary. There was no bigger Mariners, Seahawks, or Sonics fan.
Eldan had a creative mind and entrepreneurial spirit. He inspired us with his big ideas, determination, and courage to follow his own path, coupled with an unwavering faith that anything could be accomplished. Toward the end of his life his biggest dream was to start a foundation to help other people. His big heart and loyalty to friends and family will be dearly missed.
Eldan is survived by his mother, Rebecca Barnowe; sisters, Dawn (Ned) and Briana (Scott), nieces, Lillian and Aurelia; and many cousins, aunts and uncles. His father William John Ball preceded him in death.
A celebration of Eldan’s life will be held on October 5th at 1:00 pm at Seabold Hall on Bainbridge Island. The family invites those inclined to do so to make donations in Eldan’s name to Arms Around Bainbridge (armsaroundbainbridge.org). www.cookfamilyfuneralhome.com
