Dear Patty and Family,

I want to express my heartfelt sympathy to all of you. Something I never knew until I read “Pinballs” obituary was that we were born on the same day, but I was born in 1939. If my Mom Frances Blake ever mentioned this fact I didn’t remember it. As first cousins there were many children born to Anna and William Kleinedler and their children had many children. So,we had many first cousins, we were blessedI didn’t know him very well, but he was always kind and fun to be with. I know he was a loving and caring husband, father, son and friend. He will be be missed by all. I will keep him and you his loving family in my prayers. God Bless.

I worked with “Mr. Ball” as I used to call him during the summers that I was in college. He had a wicked sense of humor and could give Butch Yahn a run for his money in the pranks department – only Mr. Ball was much more subtle about it, so you never quite knew who to blame. I’m sure that he’s having a good laugh in Heaven right now with Butch and Walt. Your family will remain in my thoughts and prayers.

My Dearest Patty & Billy:

I was very saddened to hear of Pinball’s passing.

It’s hard to forget the 30+ years we’ve worked together. There was more good times than bad, but all in all, we all stuck together like one big family! My heart goes out to you. I will keep you in my prayers. Always, Ellie Puskas
