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.

    1. Thank you Jen ❤️ we appreciate your heartfelt words and strong prayers. It is never easy losing a parent. We will take one day at a time. We are home now❤️

  7. Gotta love Bob! Rob and I were inseparable as kids, always at each other’s house. Bob was like the fun uncle. He allowed us boys to drink a beer, handed us the lighter to ignite the fireworks, gave us advice on how to win a fist fight, left the key in the ATV for us to go off and explore. Loved the weekends at the lake with Bob and all his antics. He’d blame us for drinking all his beer, looking back I think we were the scapegoats. Bob was always giving us instructions on how to DIY the right way. He would always say, do it this way once, and it will not be a problem for you again. Between the fireworks and his Polish cannon, I’m really surprised we have all our fingers and hair….headache(his catchphrase). Looking back, I truly appreciated the guidance he gave me and always offered a different point of view. I believe in my heart that Bob is in a better place now, and may God rest his soul.

  8. I got to meet with Bob at a few family gatherings and celebrations over the years and enjoyed knowing some things about him right away. I could see that he was a dedicated patriarch and patriot. We found out we are contemporaries in the same American experience. What I did see at the memorial service was a reflection of Bob’s love and devotion, in the faces and sentiments and happy memories shared by his loved ones and friends. He will continue to live on in our memories and healing hearts. Our sincere condolences, Don and Peggy Winter

  9. Bob was my brother and will always be. He was younger than me, but that doesn’t count I guess. I always felt safe because of him. I felt like he had my back. Even though he really hasn’t been with us the last 4 years, I hate to lose him. We all do. But so thankful that I have his family to carry on with me. Eileen, Rob and Dana, love you guys so much and lets not lose touch with each other.
