Dr. Marc A. Hall, D.V.M., 73, Winter Garden, Fla., went to Our Lord on Sept. 26, 2020.
Dr. Hall opened his small animal practice, Ocoee Animal Hospital, in June 1976. He served many clients and their beloved pets until retiring in 2015.
A 1971 graduate of Purdue University's School of Veterinary Medicine, West Lafayette, Dr. Hall went on to complete more study and authored journal articles during an intern program at the University of Minnesota.
He worked for two successful small animal practices in Ft. Lauderdale, Fla., and Cincinnati, Ohio, before deciding to open his own clinic in West Orange County, Fla. At that time, there were few other veterinary clinics in central Florida.
He later was president of the Central Florida Veterinary Association and a lifetime member of the American Veterinary Association. He remained a member even after retiring and attended annual courses to further his understanding of small-animal care. He liked learning and keeping up with his profession.
Marc was the fourth child of nine born to Carl and Margaret Hall, Wolcott. The Hall kids are: David, Diane, Marsha, Marc, Nina, Nancy, Karla, Kris and Kent. The six girls and three boys came every year or so and the farmhouse was full and busy.
Growing up on a farm, Marc loved animals even as a child, and pilled chickens with pebbles, shocked his mother bringing two live skunks home, and raised lots of parakeets in the family's basement. He walked his 4-H pigs while practicing his tuba for high school band.
He was a mischievous, curious youngster and liked to play tricks on his siblings. Marc's sense of humor never left him, and he always had a joke or story to share. Becoming a veterinarian was always his desire growing up, yet he retained his Midwest values and humility throughout life. Marc died of aggressive small-cell cancer of the lungs, which metastasized to his liver, and congestive heart failure.
Marc was Catholic and had a deep faith practice. With retirement, he became a member of St. Vincent de Paul, which runs a food pantry for those in need at St. Andrew Catholic Church, Pine Hills, Fla.
Marc was married to wife Denise for 51 years. His three children are Erin Hall, Atlanta, Ga., McKenize Hall (partner Allynne), Tampa, Fla., and Neil Hall (wife Andrea); and three dearly loved grandchildren, Sydney, Wesley and Paige, Tavares, Fla.
Donations can be made to St. Andrew Catholic Church, 801 N. Hastings St., Orlando, FL 32808 for St. Vincent de Paul charitable works or needs of the church in care of Fr. Leo Hodges, Pastor.
During this time of COVID-19, private family funeral mass and interment were conducted.

Denise, I am heart broken to hear of Dr. Hall’s passing. My thoughts and prayers go out to you and the family.
Dr. Hall has been our family vet since my family moved here in 1966. I was in 6th grade. As an adult Dr. Hall was the vet for my animals also. Since his retirement I have not found another vet who cared and had so much wisdom when dealing with our animals as well as the family. Dr. Hall was a one of a kind vet and he will be remembered forever in my heart.
God Bless

Our thoughts and prayers are with you during this very difficult and sad time. Marc was such a kind, unpretentious man. He was supportive when we had to say good bye to our beloved pets and he was never shocked by what we brought him, including our pet skunk. We loved him as a friend, a neighbor and our Vet. He made a difference while he was here, and he will be deeply missed.

Denise- my heart goes out to you and the family. Marc was a friend and neighbor for over 30 years. He was also the best-ever vet and helped me (and my animals) many times through the years. I could always count on his compassion, knowledge and fresh insight as we discussed everything from politics to the condition of our road. His volunteer efforts come as no surprise- he put genuine care for others into action. I will miss him. Sending love and healing prayers your way.

Heartbroken to see this. Dr. Hall was the Dr. House of vets. His diagnostic skills were amazing. A dedicated vet and a good man. I imagine he’ll make a stop over the rainbow bridge. Sincere sympathy to his wife and children.....

My heartfelt sympathy to Denise and her family. I met Marc in 1976 when he was getting his new clinic in Ocoee ready to open. He was one of the nicest people I have known. I have no doubt where he is today. May God watch over his family.
