Hall, John William

A native of Rochester, NY, Mr. Hall moved to Georgia in 1978. He was a Boy Scout and Alter Boy at a young age. With only a high school education, he became a very successful businessman and entrepreneur. John officially retired at the age of 40 – which was a childhood goal – and then achieved his lifetime goal of starting and growing several successful businesses. His greatest gift to his children was paying for their college education so that they could start the rest of their lives free of debt. He loved snowmobiles, water and snow skiing, was an avid boater, loved entertaining friends and family, and was quick with a witty joke or a tale to tell. John was a loyal friend and dedicated family man. He lived life to the fullest and managed to empty his substantial bucket list before passing. He was a true HMFIC & HA, and a big one too !! Hooray for John!

Survivors include: Sharon Hall; 3 Children – Robert (Tina) Every, Princeton, KY; Karen Lane, Dallas, GA; Kimberly (Travis) Berry, Huntsville, AL ; 4 Siblings – Lorrie Hall and Patricia Cowan, both of California, Jean Cosgriff and Edward Hall, both of New York; 4 Grandchildren – Justin Lane, Nicholas Lane, Cody Sprewell and Dylan Sprewell; 2 Great Grandchildren, Bailee Sprewell and Janessa Sprewell and numerous nieces and nephews.

He was proceeded in death by his parents Thomas C & Helen Hall and his sister, Donna Wilcox.

Eternal rest grant unto him, O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon him.
May his soul and all the souls of the faithful departed, through the Mercy of God, rest in peace.
