Raymond R. Hall, 68, of Lancaster passed away on Wednesday evening, April 26, 2017 at Lancaster General Hospital.
Raymond R. Hall began his adventurous life in Forres, Moret,Scotland, on October 29, 1948 born of an American soldier and an English mum, the late Ralph R. and Margaret I. Patterson Hall. Boarding the Queen Mary flag ship, the family sailed to the United States, and moved to the mountains of NC where he called home for thirty one years. He joined theU.S. Navy at seventeen years old and served three tours during the Vietnam War aboard the USS Lafayette. He later joined the U.S. Army National Guard in North Carolina serving as a Military Police Officer and transferred to the PA Army National Guard as a Weapons Specialist. His last military orders called him back to active duty, as he served a tour in Europe in Operation Enduring Freedom during the Iraq War. Upon his return, he retired with numerous honors and awards afterover twenty years of service.
He was a member of American Legion Post #34 and the Lancaster City Republic Committee.
Ray enjoyed the outdoors, fishing in the streams of NC, hiking at Fort Indiantown Gap with his daughters, and tinkering with anything mechanical. If it broke, he could fix it. His friends and family could call on him all hours of the night when they were in a jam, if their car broke down or if they just needed to talk.
Ray is survived by his seven beautiful daughters, Lisa K. wife of Reali Colon of Lancaster, Cristina M. Hall of Mt. Joy, Amanda M. wife of Todd Hawn of Columbia, Sharon R. wife of Trevor Groff of Lancaster, Tiffany M. Hall of Columbia, Rachel M. Hall of Harrisburg and Michelle N. Hall of Columbia. He is also survived by his sister, Dorothy of North Carolina along with his dear grandchildren, Isreali, Victoria, Realina, Caylee, Chelsey, Eddie, William and Mayson. He was preceded in death by his son, Kevin Allen Hall.
He was affectionately called Pops by the many people who came to know him.
To us, his family, he was always Daddy.
Family and friends are respectfully invited to attend Ray's funeral services on Tuesday, May 2, 2017 at 1PM from Calvary Church, 1051 Landis Valley Road, Lancaster, PA 17601 with Pastor Paul Thompson officiating. Friends will be received at the church on Tuesday from Noon til 1PM. Intement will be held in the Mellingers's Mennonite Cemetery where military honors will be accorded. Please omit flowers.
