Fred Ball, Lucille Ball’s younger brother, who traveled with his brother-in-law Desi Arnaz and worked at Desilu Productions, died Feb. 5 in Cottonwood, Ariz. He was 91.
Ball left Jamestown to join his sister in California in the 1930s. He later traveled with Desi Arnaz and his band and sat on the board of directors at Desilu Productions, the studio that produced “I Love Lucy,” as well as “Mission Impossible,” “Star Trek,” and “The Untouchables.”
In recent years, he and his wife, Zo, operated a motel in Cottonwood.
