George Ira Hall, 80, resident of the Mount Olive area, passed away Thursday afternoon, Dec. 9, 2021, at Wayne Memorial Hospital.
He was a farming man who enjoyed the simple things in life. He had served in the North Carolina National Guard, was a jokester and enjoyed fishing. A good golfer, he seemed to have the draw of good luck in whatever direction his life took him. A favorite on both sides of his family, he worked hard and was good to those he cared about.
George is survived by a sister, Martha Hall Turner and her husband, M. D., of Mount Olive; a niece, Lori Hall Gensic and her family of Charlottesville, Virginia; and a nephew, Harry P. Hall Jr. and his family of Mount Olive. He is also survived by an extended family through his devotion to Dorothy Bowden, his long-time companion, now deceased.
Along with Dorothy, he was preceded in death by his parents, Ed Carr Hall and Irene Martin Hall; and two brothers, Edward Hall and Harry Hall.
Graveside services were held at the Hall Family Cemetery on Sunday, Dec. 12, at 2 p.m. Harry P. Hall Jr. led the service.
This was a Tyndall service.
