Breezy is a 1945 graduate of Snow Shoe High School. He served in the US Army from December 1945 until April 1947. Serving during WWII, he received the Army of Occupation Medal and the World War II Victory Medal before his honorable discharge.

Breezy was of the Catholic faith. After his military service, he dabbled in many ventures including owning his own car lot business and being a self-employed truck driver. He loved to find bargains and was one to haggle on the price of things to get the best bargain he could. After retirement, he liked to tinker around the house and keep himself busy. He enjoyed watching TV and to have visitors stop in, especially his family.

Breezy is survived by his children; Christopher Hall and his wife, Thresa, of Howard, Bryan Hall and his wife, Jill, of Grassflat, Jean Marie “Mia” Harris and her husband, Antonio, of Atlanta, GA, Celeste Barclay and her husband, Thomas, of Winston, GA, Suzi Hall of Ashland, KY, and Cody Hall and his wife, Elizabeth, of McDonough, Ga; 12 grandchildren and 17 great grandchildren.

He is also survived by three brothers: Jack Hall and his wife, Andrea, of Ottsville, PA, Harry “Teetle” Hall and his wife Gladys, of Snow Shoe, and Fred Hall of Spring Hill, TN, and one sister, Joan Kendrick of Grassflat.

Along with his parents and wife, Breezy was preceded in death by his two children, Tommy Hall, and Yolanda Hall McGonigal, and by one sister, Margaret Hall.
