    He was one of the good ones! He always was quick with a smile and witty with a comment! He will be missed sorely by both family and friends, although if you were his friend he made you feel like family.

    Sincere condolences to Bill’s family. He was a friend from my early years in Eureka and I saw him only a few days ago when he came by in his truck with his trusty black and white dog and traveling companion. Spider and I send our sincere sympathy to all of you.

    It was a privilege to know and work with Bill. He was an innovative business man, a great negotiator, and few worked harder. Bill left a lasting impression on the world he touched. Most of all he had a warm heart.
    My condolences to Brenda and all the family.

    Deepest condolences Hall and Shores family. There will never be another like Bill Hall and I feel lucky to have known him as I learned some valuable lessons from him.
    Thanks Bill for putting me on the “medical rock”, I use it all the time! Deer camp just won’t be the same.
    For the family- Tell all of the stories over again, look at all the old pictures, find peace.

    Bill was such a great guy, he made me feel welcome and like part of the family from the first time I went hunting at FFF. His humor, insights and generosity will be greatly missed by myself and all the other hunters I have brought down over the years. He never held it against me that I’m a Yankee. My family and I send our sympathy and prayers for comfort to Brenda and the whole family. Sal and Suzanne Marciano

    I have known Bill all my life , If I could, I would liked to have thanked him for the many smiles and laughs over the years. There is no way you could be in his presence for any length of time without laughing or at least smiling , if so you were not paying attention!!!!! He was a bright strand woven into our local home fabric, He will be sorely missed!!!

    Scott Blair and our family send our condolences. Just found out about Bill’s passing and he’d been thinking of him for the past week wondering if something had happened to him. Scott loved him and Brenda very much!
