Story times at the Calhoun-Gordon County 16, 1995, a son of Horace “Ecky” and DeDe Hall. He was a graduate of Adairsville High School in Adairsville. At the time of his death, he was employed by Gerdau Ameristeel in Cartersville, where he was a crane operator.
William was one of those few that religiously donated blood every time the opportunity was available to him, and it was very obvious by the collection of t-shirts that he had obtained by donating. He was a hard working young man, and loved to spend his money on his truck, his old Cadillac, and his game systems. He was a serious gamer.
William loved guns and swords, and was an avid collector of both. He also loved to fish and hunt every opportunity he had. William was either working, gaming, hunting, fishing, or at home tending to the hogs with his family. He loved being at home and spending time with his mom and dad, and his entire family. William was a Christian young man.
He was preceded in death by his grandmother, Mae Hall; his grandfather, William Parker; and an aunt, Penny Parker.
William is survived by his parents, who will miss him dearly, Ecky and DeDe Hall of the home; his sisters, Sheryl Inman and her fiancé Wayne Reeder, Barbara Hall, Brittney Merrill, all of Texas, and Brooke Graves of Fairmount; his brothers, who are twins, Brent and his wife Nadia Hall, and Brandon Hall of Texas; his grandparents, Horace Esker Hall Sr., of Columbus, Miss., and Willa Dean Parker of Pine Log; his aunt and her husband, Darnelle and Willie Adcock of Pine Log; his best buddy, Hugo Zimora of Cartersville; eight nieces and two nephews. Several other family members and special friends also survive William.
