CONNECTICUT – David “Skip” W. Hall, PMC-E7, U.S. Navy, Retired, joined his wife in heaven on Thursday, February 20, 2020. Skip & Jean met and fell in love in Westfield MA, where they were married on Oct. 14, 1967. They spent 44 love-filled years together until Jean’s passing in Dec. 2011. After serving 23 years in the Navy, he retired in 1987 as a Pattern Maker Chief – E7, Skip settled in Coventry CT until his passing last week. While living in Coventry, he owned West Hartford Pattern Works in West Hartford CT, where he worked until retiring and closing the business. A skilled trap & skeet shooter and competitor, Dave was a proud member of the Andover Sportsman’s Club. He loved running the Turkey Shoot, and the man would constantly kick our butts in cribbage.
Skip is survived by his daughter, Tammy (Hall) Williams of Groton CT, his son, Walter L. Hall of Coventry CT, four devastatingly handsome grandsons, and his beagle, Gertrude. Fair winds and following seas, sir. We have the watch.
A graveside service with military honors will be held on Friday, Feb. 28, 2020 at 12pm at the Connecticut State Veteran’s Cemetery, 317 Bow Lane, Middletown CT. For online condolences please visit www.pietrasfuneralhome.com
