Robert Stratton Hall

May 24, 2021

Robert Stratton Hall 97, of Lincoln passed away on May 24, 2021. Born in Cherokee, IA in 1924 to Robert Sr. and Beatrice (Stratton) Hall. He was raised by father and stepmother Anna (Dawson) Hall after his mother's death. Bob was a dedicated husband and father who loved his family completely. He was a decorated WWII veteran who served with honor in the Air Force as a pilot. He was just 19 years old when he flew his first mission.

Using the G.I. Bill, Bob finished a teaching degree at UNL in three years and started his teaching career at Irving Middle School in Lincoln. He later moved to Lincoln Southeast High School and led the Industrial Arts Program. He taught Engineering and Architectural Drawing with excitement and love for his students. In addition, in the evenings he sold insurance. He called it the best of both worlds teaching students by day and working with adults by night. He also worked at the race track as a supervisor of ticket sales in the summer.

With all of these jobs he still made and effort to spend quality time with Cheryl, his daughter. Their love of quarter horses and commitment to showing them in 4-H cemented the father/daughter bond. He and his wife Marie were true soulmates and were married for 72 years. They delighted in each other's company almost as much as they delighted in being grandparents to Alyia. Giving her rides on his riding lawnmower through the neighborhood to swinging on the porch swing he adored spending time with her. His pride in her grew as she grew.

Survivors include daughter Cheryl Whitehall and granddaughter Alyia Whitehall of Lincoln along with many nieces, nephews, cousins and friends. Preceded in death by wife Marie and parents Robert Sr. with mothers Beatice and Anna.

Mr. Hall set me on a path that has ended to this day. Learning the art of drafting took me on a path in engineering that started as a draftsman and still working today consulting in the field. Still making drawings... (just using CAD) Thanks MR. Hall Roy Burgess

My deepest condolences Cheryl. Your dad was a wonderful and loving man. It was my greatest pleasure to have known him and to been able to call him my friend. Bob and Marie are together with our loving father and what a blessing Cheryl... My love to you always and to your most giving parents!

A truly remarkable teacher and lovely human being. Mr. Hall shaped mine and many others future thru his architectural drafting classes. I took every class available. His spirited influence created pathways for many of us ... how better to serve a community than to help shape the future of our youth. Thank you Mr. Hall - we are all better for the time we shared with you.

Mr. Hall was one of my favorite teachers at Southeast. He helped instill a love of drafting that I still enjoy to this day. R.I.P. Mr. Hall.

Bob Hall was the teacher that led Ed into construction from the late 60s to today. He was the most gracious man who mentored many that were steered into the world of building. There is a very special place for him to now live to eternity with his Lord and Savior. Ed was blessed to have known him & owes him for his love of vocational education which continues to guide him everyday. Ed & Pam Trehearn
