Robert Emmett (Bob) Hall

Robert (Bob) Emmett Hall

Robert (Bob) Emmett Hall was born September 13, 1947, in Chicago, Illinois and raised in Miami. Bob was a member of the Miami Central High Rockets second football team ever fielded, a medic in the army and a talented artist. He passed away after a 16-month fight with colon cancer, at TMH on April 25, 2014. A grateful recovering alcoholic, through a power greater than himself, he died with multiple years of sobriety.

Bob is survived by his son, Geoffrey, and his grandchildren, Ella and Jackson who lovingly called him "Pappy", as well as loving sisters-in-law, nieces and nephews. He was predeceased by his parents and his brothers, Fred, Richard, and Jim.

No service is planned. Bob would want his many friends to have good thoughts of him and say "goodbye" in their own way.
