December 9, 2021, 80, Mount Olive –

George Ira Hall, 80, resident of the Mount Olive area, passed away Thursday afternoon, December 9, 2021, at Wayne Memorial Hospital.

He was a farming man who enjoyed the simple things in life. He had served in the North Carolina National Guard, was a jokester and enjoyed fishing. A good golfer, he seemed to have the draw of good luck in whatever direction his life took him. A favorite on both sides of his family, he worked hard and was good to those he cared about.

George is survived by a sister, Martha Hall Turner and her husband, M. D., of Mount Olive; a niece, Lori Hall Gensic and her family of Charlottesville, Va.; and a nephew, Harry P. Hall, Jr. and his family of Mount Olive. He is also survived by an extended family through his devotion to Dorothy Bowden, his long-time companion, now deceased.

Along with Dorothy, he was preceded in death by his parents, Ed Carr Hall and Irene Martin Hall; and two brothers, Edward Hall and Harry Hall.

Graveside services will be held at the Hall Family Cemetery on Sunday, December 12, at 2 p.m. Harry P. Hall, Jr. will lead the service.
