  • "Dear Carolyn, My brother George called today to tell me of..."
  • "Carolyn, I am so sorry to learn of McLain's passing. McLain..."
    - Ken Conner

McLain Hall was born January 28, 1927, in Falcon, NC. He worked on the family cotton farm until serving in the army during World War II. A graduate of Furman University and the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, he was a long time resident of Charlotte, NC, working in international real estate. He will always be remembered for his immense love of living...from his passion for the Carolina mountains, to the opera, the theatre; his quick wit and joyous personality. An accomplished sales professional who showed his properties by air, land, and sea...from mountain trail breakers, to the trusty green jeep, as well as his Helio Courier plane. McLain is survived by his wife, Carolyn; his daughters, Gayla (Tony) Tyson, Cecelia (Steve) Martucci, Sylvia (Danny) Anders, Kimela (Scott) Caines and Donna Stewart. Our family will miss him. Rest well, our sweet, gentle soul. The family will receive friends from Monday, January 14, 2019 5:30-7:00 pm at Hankins & Whittington Funeral Service, 1111 East Blvd., Charlotte, NC 28203.
