Significantly, he also adored his daughters. 

A Navy veteran, he attended David Lipscomb University. He was a Delta Airlines pilot/captain for 32 years. Bob was a member of Brentwood United Methodist Church.

Survivors include: wife, Janell Glasgow-Hall; daughters, Cindy (Rod) Reynolds, Kathryn Hall and Laura Hall; four grandchildren; four great-grandchildren; two nieces and a nephew. He was predeceased by brother Danny Hall.
