Recent Passing of Bob Ballard
Longtime Arc volunteer and member Bob Ballard recently passed away and his family has designated The Arc of Tucson as beneficiary of memorials in Bob's name.
For those who did not know Bob, he regularly managed our Homewares Center which distributes goods to persons with intellectual/developmental disabilities. We could never have maintained the center without his assistance these many years. He always displayed a courteous, respectful demeanor and genuine support for the mission of the center , going to extra lengths to get his acquaintances and family to donate goods for the recipients, and helping with special tasks upon request. We will always cherish our friendship with Bob and miss his presence in our lives.
The family requests that memorials in Bob's name be sent to The Arc of Tucson, P.O. Box 44324 Tucson, AZ 85733.
