Kevin D. Hall


Kevin D. Hall, age 60 of Smyrna, Tennessee, died Thursday, Jan. 24, 2019, at his home, following a brief illness.

Born in Strasburg on May 22, 1958, Kevin was the son of Mrs. Bernice (Rentsch) Hall and the late Wilbur Hall.

After graduating from Strasburg High School in 1976, Kevin continued his formal education at Kent State University, where he obtained an associate degree in accounting and business management as well as a Bachelor of Arts degree in marketing.

During his career Kevin worked as a flooring contractor in Ohio, Indiana, Florida and Tennessee. He was very skilled at this work and was a valued employee and team member.

Kevin loved time with family, golfing, boating and hunting. While working in Florida, he volunteered with Big Brothers of Pensacola and served in a critical role as a substitute father for many young men who have overcome obstacles and become fine adults and family men. Kevin even became certified and performed a wedding for two of the individuals at their request. He had a wonderfully wicked sense of humor and was great fun to be around.

Kevin will be sorely missed by his mother, Bernice of Heath, Ohio, and his brothers, Richard (Jan) Hall of Worthington, Ronald (Carrie) Hall of Utica and Thomas (Beth) Hall of Newark. He also was loved by his nephews and nieces, Travis Hall of Dayton, Tennessee, Teresa Crawford of Dayton, Ohio, Michael (Jenna) Hall of Manhattan Beach, California, Jessica (Adam) Porsch of Westerville, Jeny (Matthew) Donavan of Blacklick and Elli (Andrew) Kalas of Utica; their children; and many friends.
