Hall for WebsiteRussell Harrison Hall, of Fayetteville, AR., died June 22, 2015.  Russell was born to Vernon Lloyd and Frances Elizabeth Louise (Rose) Hall.

    Dear Joanne & family, Tom & I were sorry to learn of Russell ‘s passing. He was always full of good spirits. He was the first to recognize Lucas Stuart’s ability to mow thru his siblings to get to Mom or Dad. We have fond memories for this fine man. We were blessed to know him.

    Thomas and family,
    so sorry to hear about Russell.
    I remember he and my brother playing
    football together at FHS and at the UofA.
    I remember the fun times we had terrorizing
    Garland and Maxwell growing up. Your mom put a
    newspaper splint on my broken leg.
    I wish you and your family well and hope that the fond memories out weigh the grief ten fold. God bless you all.
