NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- Mr. Robert Keller Hall died Monday, Aug. 25, 2008, in Nashville.
He was a son of the late Harry Thomas Hall and Evelyn Sharpe Hall of Myrtle Beach, S.C.
Mr. Hall was a graduate of Clemson University (B.S. and M.S.) and Vanderbilt University (PhD). He was employed as an Assistant Professor of Research at Vanderbilt University Medical Center, Nashville, Tenn.
All who knew "Rob" will remember him as a loving husband, more, a best friend, a confidante, a compassionate companion; a caring father who saw great and grand potential in each of his sons; who encouraged individuality and excellence; who lovingly nurtured growth and learning; the adventurous and fun-loving brother whose jokes and laughter filled our lives and overflowed from his heart to ours; the "son" who was never considered a "son-in-law" and a "brother" who was never thought of as a "brother-in-law"; the scientist that was ever in awe of the vast intricacy of God's creation; the spirit of one who impacted us all in such a way that we can do no less than live more loving, compassionate, devoted lives; sustaining each other until we see him again.
He is survived by his wife, Christy Watts Hall; sons, Justin Christopher Hall and Robert Jared Hall; brothers and sisters-in-law, Tommy Hall and wife, Jeanne, Bill Hall and wife, Sharon, Mark Hall and wife, Connie; brother-in-law, Jeff Watts and wife, Kim; father-in-law and mother-in-law, Bonnie and Jean Watts; 11 nieces and nephews. All loved him dearly and he will be forever missed.
In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by his brother, Jeff Hall.
