David “Dave” Douglas Hall Sr, 64, returned to his heavenly home on March 9, 2020 after a courageous battle with his lung disease. His devotion to his family and his firm belief in G-d supported him in his journey and ultimately gave him peace.
Dave was born to the late Douglas and Doris Hall, a Disney Master Plumber/Pipe Fitter and a homemaker respectively, in Sanford, FL on August 11, 1955. He was immersed in his Messianic faith that he found in his adult years, this supported and guided him through the rest of his life as a husband & father. He was an Apprentice to his father as an adolescent and a Journeyman electrician as an adult. He completed Tech school in St. Petersburg, Fl, after which he became a member of the IBEW Local 1205 in Gainesville, FL, where he worked for 22 years.
Dave was blessed with a loving family. He married his best friend & true love, Annamae Marie Shultz, on May 10th, 1993 in St. Petersburg, FL. Dave helped raise his daughter with patience, love, discipline and humility. He taught her to ask questions, research for the answers, and inspired her relationship with G-d and Torah. Dave often took them on long bike rides and family trips to the park. From the very beginning, he dedicated his daughter to G-d and led his family through the teachings of Torah. This dedication encouraged his wife to further her education in a career to help others, and his daughter to study religious teachings in college.
Dave was an educator at heart. He was kind, eager to share scripture, and always had time to answer a question or solve a problem, no matter how small. He is dearly missed by his loved ones, who celebrate the fact that he is at peace with his Creator.
Dave is survived by his wife, Annamae Marie Hall; his daughters Ochesa Hall and Jennifer Hall-Stirk; his grandchildren; his sister, Jessica Hall; his brother, Dean Hall; and his Nephews & Nieces. He is preceded in death by his son, David Hall Jr; his brother, Daniel Hall; his parents Douglas & Doris Hall; and his grandparents.
