Robert (Bob) Lynn Hall passed away on November 21st. He had been a resident of Colorado Springs since 1982. He grew up in Fort Morgan, Colorado, then moved to Livermore, California with his wife Eileen in 1969. He then returned to Fort Morgan in 1981.
Bob was born on July 11, 1948 to Almirin Parker Hall and Mollie (Poffenrath) Hall in Brush, Colorado. On July 19th, 1969 he married the love of his life Eileen Schaffer in Reno, Nevada.
Bob greatly enjoyed boating and camping with his family and especially loved fishing, airchairing, and traveling, in addition to his favorite sardines and crackers with cottage cheese combo. Yum. Bob loved to share this peculiar taste with his granddaughter, Paige who enjoyed sardines right alongside him, and his grandson, Alex who personally favored the cottage cheese portion. Ultimately, as a family we had many boating and camping experiences, which naturally led to some interesting food experiences (think huevos rancheros). These are the kinds of experiences Bob loved to share, and with family as his lens through which he saw life, he sought to love – and share life in the sense that “it is what it is” thus requires nothing more.
He is survived by his loving wife, Eileen Hall; children, Dana (Daniel) Bettner, Robert (Randi) Hall; sister, Nancy (Gene) Earley; grandchildren, Paige and Alexander Kinnaman, Bryson and Reese Hall; and many other loving family members.
He was preceded in death by his father, AP Hall; mother, Mollie Hall; and brothers, Jim and Bill Hall.
A memorial service for Bob Hall will be held 2PM on Saturday, November 30, 2019 at the Shrine of Remembrance, 1730 E. Fountain Blvd.
