Roland P. Hall Obituary
Hall Col. Roland P. Hall, USAF (ret.), passed away peacefully at home, surrounded by his loving family, on Monday, April 17, 2017. He was born August 25, 1922 in Haynesville, Louisiana to the late Elmer and Mellie Hall. Besides his parents he was preceded in death by brother Durward. Roland entered the Army Air Corps in 1942, graduated from flight school in Corsicana, Texas as a 2nd Lt, and after 32 years retired from the US Air Force as a Colonel and Command Pilot. He served during WWII, the Berlin Airlift, Korea, and Vietnam, and earned a number of medals and ribbons, among them the Bronze Star, the Air Medal with 4 clusters, the Distinguished Flying Cross, and the Legion of Merit. He is a graduate of the University of Maryland and the Air War College. Following retirement from the Air Force he worked for 20 years for The Ohio State University Research Foundation as Administrator of Grants for Heart and Cancer Research. His last job was as Director of Public Services for the City of Gahanna, where he retired at the age of 80. Roland often stated that his life really began when he met and married his wife Edie (Langner) in 1946. They were happily married for 71 wonderful and exciting years. In addition to his wife, Roland is survived by daughters, Rosemary Hall and Ingrid Stevens; son, Chris Hall; seven grandchildren; eight great-grandchildren; and one great-great-grandchild. All his life Roland has been known and loved for his kindness, his willingness to help others, and of course, for his endearing smile. He has been an amazing human being who will be missed not only by his family, but by the many people whose life he has touched. A "Celebration of Life" will be held on Monday, April 24, 2017 at 4 p.m. at SCHOEDINGER NORTHEAST CHAPEL, 1051 E.
