Robert C. Hall

Robert C. Hall, age 88, New Underwood, passed away bravely and gently Dec. 30, 2016 surrounded by his 12 children, their partners in life, and his loving grandchildren, and great grandchildren, to join his wife, Helen, who passed away in 2014.
Bob was born Sept. 21, 1928, north of St. Lawrence, to Charles and Frances (Koeck) Hall.  He attended grade school at a rural school north of St. Lawrence and graduated from St. Lawrence High School in 1947.  
He married the love of his life, Helen Brons, Oct.15, 1947, in St. Lawrence.  Through this joyous union 12 children were born: Kathy, Bob, Greg, Meri Jo, Sheila, John, Bill, Cindy, Jim, Tim, Barb and Danny. All learned the value of God, love, family, and hard work through the example their parents set.
Dad did many jobs throughout his life enjoying most but his favorites were being anything to do with the agricultural industry including selling MoorMan’s feed and his Hall’s Haygrinding business.
He had many friends and relatives that his existence touched, who all feel truly blessed by knowing him.  A void will be felt by his departure to join his other loved ones. He loved his children, grandchildren, and his sons-in-law and daughters-in-law (outlaws) to his final day, keeping even the ex-outlaws in his life and heart.
He is loved and survived by his sister, Colleen Vining, and his brother, Charles Hall, and sister-in-law, Nancy Hall, and brother-in-law, Harvey Malon.  His grateful children, Katheryn (Glenn) Goodman, Rapid City, Cindy (Scott) Parsons – Craig (Cara) Booker and Brinley Parsons, Jordann (Jason) – Elsie Lehman and Roni Parsons, Val Shull – Zach and Rylie, Rob (Angel) Goodman – Destinee, Nykeeta and Xzavier Goodman; Robert (Mary) L.
