William "Dave" David Hall
July 25, 1949 - May 2, 2021
William "Dave" David Hall of Forest, passed away peacefully on Sunday, May 2, 2021, at Lynchburg General Hospital.
Born on July 25, 1949, in Charleston, W.Va., he was the first son of the late Bishop William R. Hall and Dorothy P. Hall.
Having always possessed a talent as a skilled tradesman, Dave started his work career in the Norfolk Naval shipyard at an early age. He transitioned into construction, building a successful general contracting company and retired as owner of Structures Unlimited of Forest, Inc. After his retirement, he began to pursue one of his lifelong passions in the restoration of vintage cars. As an avid Ford Mustang fan, Dave built a collection that he cherished.
Throughout his life, he had the opportunity to travel the world on his many hunting trips which he enjoyed with his closest friends. Dave was a proud Virginia Cavalier Basketball fan and could be found coaching in front of his TV every season. He lived with zeal, chasing his passions with enthusiasm and acted as an incredible friend, mentor, husband, father, and grandfather.
Dave is survived by his wife of 37 years, Karen Walker Hall; one daughter, Jessica L. Hall and her husband, Ross Rebhan, of Charlotte, N.C.; a son, Rodney D. Hall and his wife, Wendy, of Forest; one granddaughter, Carly S. Hall; a sister, Sharon H Humphrey and husband, Michael, of Gates, N.C.; a brother, Raymond B. Hall of Suffolk, Va.; mother-in-law, Jeanette M Walker of Altavista, Va.; many nieces and nephews; and his beloved pup, Crosby. He was preceded in death by his parents, a son, William Ryan Hall and a brother, William Dennis Hall.
The family wishes to thank the many people who have helped during his illness and all of those who have been a part of Dave's life.
