Robert was born Dec. 12, 1934 in Independence, Iowa to Orville A. Hall and Mabel Nissen Hall. He proudly served his country in the U.S. Navy during the Korean War in Japan and Taiwan.

Robert was a student of history and traveled extensively throughout Europe, Japan and Greece. He was an avid reader and devoted teacher. He was a member of the American Legion and received a donor recognition for his frequent blood. He was a very humble man with a sense of humor and would have thought this attention unnecessary.

He is survived by his wife: Donna Harrison Hall; brother: James Norman Hall of Chula Vista, Calif.; several nieces and nephews; four step - children and seven step-grandchildren.

He was preceded in death by his parents; brother: Stanley David Hall; sisters: Lucille M. Hall Aldrich and Patricia A. Hall.
