For death begins with life’s first breath and life begins at the touch of death….
Charles Lloyd Hall, 76, took his last earthly breath and his first Heavenly breath at 2:30 pm on Saturday, April 23, 2016 at his home in Diana with his wife Janet Wyatt Hall by his side and surrounded by the love of his family. His long battle with cancer is finally over.
He was born on August 14, 1939 in Diana to Orval Lloyd and Malinda Evelyn Brown Hall. He married Janet Lorraine Wyatt, whom he said was a blessing sent to him from God, on September 16, 1967 in Diana, and they have been married going on 49 years. They raised seven children in a home full of Faith, love and laughter. He was most proud of his children, grandchildren, and his great-grandbabies; the littlest faces brought him the greatest joy, along with reading his Bible and passing on his knowledge and understanding of the Word of God, even if it was to a complete stranger whom he just met. He was always a great witness for the Lord. He was loved by everyone that he met and he loved them in return. The greatest tragedy of his life was to be preceded in death by his granddaughter, Jamie Lee Hall, at the age of 17. Her death is something that left him heartbroken.
He was Union Mission by faith and attended many of the community churches before he became too ill to attend. He preached many sermons and received many blessings from God in his life. He worked 21 years in the coal mines and spent 23 years working in the woods, timbering logs and operating a sawmill and making wood posts and rails.
Lloyd is survived by his wife Janet Wyatt Hall of Diana; children Edgar (Darlene) Hall of Webster Springs, James (Sherry) Hall of Bolair, Earl (Elsie) Hall of Webster Springs, Doyle (Kimberly) Hall of Upperglade, Jeff Hall of Webster Springs, Susan (Calvin) Rowan of Weston, and Amanda (David) Dawkins of Webster Springs; two children adopted by heart Emmett McElwain of French Creek and Sandra (Douglas) Pyles of Romney; grandchildren Jennifer, Edgar, Anthony, Betsy, Kenny, Charlie, Emmett, Matthew, Zackary, Christopher, Megan, Brittany, Wesley, Shelby, Roy, Jazmen and Tyrick; great-grandbabies Corey, Hayden, Levi, McKenzie, Addalynn, Connor and Boe. He was joyfully awaiting the arrival of three more Hall great-grandbabies, a little boy Reese, a little girl Bailey, and unknown gender to be named Brentley or Payton. He is also survived by brothers Denver (Theresa) Hall of Clarksville, TN and Harley (Patricia) Hall of Medina, OH; sisters Ilene (Carl) Wilson, Shara (David) Chapman, Pauline (Brad) Henline, all of Diana, Bethel Pugh of Buckhannon, Helen Hall of Medina, and Charolette (Art) Wagoner of Keyser; aunts Edith, Opal, and Midge, all of Ohio; and many cousins, nieces, and nephews that he deeply loved.
He was preceded in death by his granddaughter Jamie Lee Hall; parents; and brother Donald Hall.
