Congressman Andy Barr (KY-06) issued the following statement on the passing of Don Ball:

“Carol and I are saddened to learn of the passing of a great Kentuckian, Don Ball.  Not only was Don a successful entrepreneur, developer and philanthropist, but his business ventures helped thousands of Kentucky families achieve their American dream of homeownership.  He and his wife, Mira, have also given back so much to help those in need, particularly through their leadership at the Hope Center and Recovery Kentucky, which have become national models for addiction recovery and rebuilding lives.  Kentucky has and will continue to benefit from Don's inspiring legacy as a difference-maker.  We send our deepest condolences to the Ball family and all those touched by his life.”
