Guest Book

Words can't express the loss that we feel with the passing of Gene Hall. He was my father, my best friend, and someone who brought light into the life of all he touched. We miss you, Dad...

Gene and I grew up together,I can still see him peddling the jingle bike, selling ice cream. There were great times at my house, St. Cloud Commons, ball games, Junior High and Huntington High. He later became a member of my family, marrying my sister. His passing will leave a void for all that knew him. He was special. Celebrating in a life well lived-I will always cherish the memories, of which there are many. My condolences to the family. Patricia Lawson Donahoe

Pam, so sorry for your loss. Will fondly remember those early years at the bank and the fun we had.

“Lets all remember Gene playing Santa at the 4th floor Christmas parties...we laughed until we cried. He was a wonderful person who mentored us and we didn't even know we were being mentored. His heart and his wit were huge and one of the smartest people I ever knew…..”
Gail Champagne


“Isn't it amazing how one man can...

Pam, I will always remember Gene as a fun loving, gentle and supportive person who always had a smile no matter what the situation. Long days at Centerbank didn't seem so long because Gene always made them fun and was right there with you.
He was a wonderful boss, co-worker but most of all a wonderful man who brought out the best in all of us.
My thoughts are with you at this time.

Prayers to you, Pam, and your family. Lynda Byrd Wyant, Class of 1959, Huntington High School, Huntington, WV
