William Roscoe “Bill” Hall, age 89, of Jefferson City, Mo., passed away Saturday, May 22, 2021 at his home surrounded by family.

Bill was born on August 20, 1931 in Cotton, Mo., the oldest son of William Robert and Amy Ruth (Potts) Hall. He was married on April 15, 1950 in Jefferson City, Mo. to Deloris “Connie” Mae Stewart, who preceded him in death on October 19, 2015.

A lifelong resident of Missouri, Bill attended high school in the small town of Elmer. He then went on to attend trade school to become highly skilled in the electronics field.

Bill spent his career perfecting his trade as an electronics technician. Bill could fix anything and spent many hours repairing televisions, radios, telephones and pagers. In the early 1950’s, Bill co-founded A&B Radio and Television. He later became part-owner and operator of Columbia Electronics (currently Tri-Star Communications) until his retirement. He was proud to help outfit many of the first responders with communication throughout central Missouri. At age 89, he was still tinkering; repairing his own clothes dryer, with help from YouTube!

Bill was proudly a lifetime member and volunteer for The Missouri Wing - Civil Air Patrol (CAP). CAP is a humanitarian organization and the official auxiliary of the United States Air Force. They are responsible for carrying out emergency services and disaster relief missions nationwide.

Bill was a ham radio enthusiast (KB0NXX). He enjoyed music - attending bluegrass festivals and visiting the Grand Ole Opry multiple times. He spent many weekends camping and boating. Despite being diabetic, he also had a great love for all things sweet with donuts, pumpkin pie and ice cream being his favorites.

Bill had a curious mind and a true love for learning. He was passionate about studying military history and steam engines. If he didn’t know how to do something, he would pick up a book and teach himself. Despite being born during the Great Depression, losing his father at an early age, and surviving several traumatic accidents; Bill overcame adversity and had a life well lived. He was always a hard worker, great father and made his family is extremely proud.

Survivors include: four children, Sandy Hanauer (Mike) of Holts Summit, Mo., Johnny Hall (Danita) of Jefferson City, Mo., Kelley Christian of Jefferson City, Mo. and Amy Tillinghast (Sean) of Columbus, Ohio; two brothers, Jim Hall of Kansas City, Ks. and Wilfred “Bud” Hall (Sandy) of Mount Vernon, Indiana; five grandchildren, John Hanauer (Kendra), Stacy Epema (John), Pamela Enriquez (Jeremy), Kesi Aird (Bill), and Jesica Campbell (Chris); and eleven great-grandchildren.

Bill was preceded in death by his parents; his wife of sixty-five years, Connie; siblings, Opal Parrish, Gladys Bechel, Hazel Hewitt, Norma Barnard, and Henry Hall; and one grandson, Cameron Hall.

Private graveside services and interment will be held at Riverview Cemetery.

In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions are suggested to the American Diabetes Association by mailing any donations to P.O. Box 95, Jefferson City, Mo. 65102.

Funeral arrangements are under the care of Freeman Mortuary.

Sandy, John & Amy I was so saddened to hear of your fathers passing. I know how hard it will be to say your final goodbye. Honestly, it’s not goodbye, it’s I’ll see you later. I hope you will find peace knowing that he is now reunited with your mother; can you imagine the celebration they had upon his arrival in Heaven? I’m sure it was nothing short of amazing.

Tho we’ve never really taken the time to get to know each other which is sad, please know you’re in my prayers. Uncle Bill & Aunt Connie were an amazing couple who showed what true love was like.
