Our condolences to the Hall family. My father-in-law grew up with John in Knoxville and remained life long friends. Wonderful memories that Pat shared with all of us. Growing up in Eastern Kentucky, driving passing the Ashland Oil Plant, you knew all was well with John Hall at the helm. Love and prayers for all today.

John and I started on the CSWF Board at the same time many, many years ago now. I especially admired and revered John's contribution to the group during our time on the board. All the years since he has been an important player in the Conservancy's efforts as well as to the community. Knowing John and his beautiful wife during our time Naples, Florida have made our time there better days... Donna I send my love to you - John will be missed immensely by by Chris and I.
