Elmore S Ballard

August 18, 1915May 27, 2011

Elmore S. Ballard, 95 of Stafford County, went to be with the Lord on Friday, May 27, 2011. He was born August 18, 1915. Raised in the Hartwood area, Elmo Ballard remained a life-long resident of Stafford County who retired from Stafford County Park Services. He was a kind, compassionate man who was always willing to lend a helping hand to anyone in need. Elmo was truly a friend to all. His vibrant personality and contagious smile will surely be missed by many. He was a lifelong member of Berea Baptist Church of Stafford County. He was a true man of God who was ripe for Heaven and feared not death. Elmo is survived by his sister-in-law, Frances L. Ballard and his loving caregiver, Ms. Hazel Bowler and two lifelong friends, Mr. William Dickerson and Scott Seay. He is also survived by numerous nieces, nephews, cousins, and many friends. A graveside service will be held at 11:00 a.m., Tuesday, May 31, at Sunset Memorial Gardens, with Pastor Jeff Parsons officiating. The family will receive friends an hour prior to the service at Mullins and Thompson Funeral Service, Fredericksburg Chapel. Pallbearers will be Sean Ballard, Travis Brassart, Robert Kurz, Donald Bowler, William Bowler, and Robert Bowler. We would like to thank all of the staff of Woodmont Nursing Center for their loving support and care. Online condolences may be made at

Elmo was truly one of John's best friends. He was always ready to help or to just be there as a good buddy. John will be happy to see you again Elmo.

Elmo was such a kind and gentle man. He always had a helping hand ready for anyone that needed it. I will remember his wonderful smile and his bicycle riding up and down Holly Corner road. He was truly a man who gave so much to others and expected nothing in return. Rest in peace Elmo.
