History

Founded by brothers Howard and Elwood Ball, Ball & Dodd Funeral Home has provided a high level of professionalism and integrity to Spokane-area families since 1938.

The Ball Brothers and the founder of Father's Day

The Ball brothers partnered with a well-known member of Spokane: Sonora Smart Dodd and her husband, John Bruce Dodd. Sonora, who held her father in great esteem, approached the Spokane Ministerial Alliance about a day for fatherhood to be recognized. She was responsible for the celebration of the first Father's Day, which was held on June 19, 1910 in Spokane.

Over time, the idea of Father's Day became popular and embraced across the nation. In 1916, President Woodrow Wilson sent a telegraph to Spokane praising its Father's Day services. In 1966, President Lyndon B. Johnson signed a presidential proclamation declaring the third Sunday of June as Father's Day. In 1972, President Nixon established a permanent national observance of Father's Day to be held on the 3rd Sunday of June each year.

"I was surprised to learn the scope of your services, which include all the usual touches such as body preparation, coffins, cremation urns, rosaries and funerals, but also family emotional support along the lines of those offered by Hospice, and the honor of on-line personal obituaries/memorials. I was offered myriad services and there was always an abundance of kindness."

"Rollin Hoyle has helped us with the passing of my dad 3 years ago and my mom recently. All aspects of the Memorial Service including planning, flowers, music, coordinating with the cemetery, and financial arrangements were all managed professionally and with heartfelt care for the family. Rollin was readily available by text or phone and responded quickly to our needs. Milton"

"Ask questions if you don't know. Asked about costs and what services they included. I was glad I took someone with me to make arrangements. I can't remember everything that was said. It was so helpful that Rollin set up appointments for me. All I had to do was show up. I appreciated the calls and emails so I was able to get everything ready for the folder. All the staff was very attentive at the service and the cemetery"
