Obituary

David Linn Ballmann, aka Rick, age 78, of Dayton, Ohio, passed away on Saturday, November 14th, 2020 at Hospice of Dayton, of ironically, everything but Covid-19.

Born January 5, 1942 in Dayton, OH to George Albert and Mary Louise Ballmann. He is survived by his three daughters, Jennifer (Mark) Makkas, Dominique & Martika; his grandchildren, Corrie (Owen) Connelly, Ryan & Kate Makkas. His four-pawed grandchildren; James, Sirius, Voltaire, Seraphine, Bert & Paisley; his siblings, Jeffrey (Julie) Ballmann, Nancy (Kim) Greene, & Linda (Doug) Hitchcock and numerous nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends.

Predeceased by his son, Gregory Alan Ballmann and sister, Jeanne Ballmann Magnum and his parents. He is also survived by his very special friend, Judy, his high school sweetheart who he recently rekindled a relationship with and was able to spend the last 10 months reminiscing on old times and making new special memories together.

A proud graduate of Chaminade High School (’60) and the University of Dayton (’64) (Go Flyers!) This man was awesome! Too many awards and recognitions to list, but one of his favorite accomplishments was still working at The Montgomery County Common Pleas Court as Jury Services Supervisor, a position he had held since May 2003.

He originally graduated as a psychology major, but immediately began a career as one of the first computer programmers at NCR which led to an exciting opportunity to move to exotic locations like Trinidad & Tobago as well as many other challenging entrepreneurial careers throughout his life.

Known for his wit and sense of humor, he was always there to lighten the mood for family and friends.

He was a Manhattan connoisseur, a world traveler, a jazz enthusiast, a “semi-pro” golfer, a hater of rutabaga, an avid reader, and the ultimate Super Bowl party thrower and chili expert.

Above everything, he loved his family the most. He was especially proud of his children and grandchildren.

His daughters would like to specifically thank Judy for all she did for Dad over the last 10 months. Also, our sincere gratitude and thanks to all his doctors, nurses and caregivers over the past years and especially these last six months at Kettering Medical Center and Hospice of Dayton.

Services will be private due to Covid-19.
In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in David’s honor to Hospice of Dayton.
A Celebration of Life party will be held at a later date to honor his memory, should we make it through 2020! 🤪 😉
