Robert Herbert Hall was born on February 3, 1922 in Belleview, Florida. He was the seventh of nine children born to Rev. Benjamin F. and Annie Scott Hall.

Robert accepted the Lord at an early age. He attended Friendship Baptist Church where his father, Rev. Benjamin F. Hall, was the pastor.

He and his siblings grew up in Belleview where they attended the Belleview-Santos School System which was initially established for African-American students.

Robert met and married Annie Pearl Finley(deceased) from Ocala, FL. To this union Patricia Ann and Robert Larry were born.

Robert learned his masonry skills from his brother-in-law, John Dunn (Ethel). He was the proprietor of Hall Masonry, Inc. until his retirement. His business extended through Broward, Dade, and Palm Beach counties.

Years later, he met and married Mele Tina Pohahau. They enjoyed traveling to the South Pacific with family members. Hawaii was their favorite destination. When Robert retired, he and Tina returned to Belleview. He built his final home on the land where he was born.

Our beloved husband, father, uncle, and friend peacefully transitioned on Good Friday, April 19, 2019 in his sleep at home surrounded by family and friends.
