Francis C. Hall "Mickey"

December 30, 1934 ~ February 7, 2021 (age 86)


Francis C. Hall died on Sunday February 7, 2021 at his home. He was 86.  Francis, known as “Mickey” to all his family, friends and coworkers was born in Savage, Maryland in 1934 to Florence and Clarence Hall. 

He worked initially for the B&O Railroad in his late teen years before settling into a long and productive career as a highly skilled carpenter. His last positions were as a carpenter and Shop General Foreman maintaining various buildings and property associated with the D.C. Children's Center in Laurel. He retired from Federal Service in 1988. During his post-retirement years, he owned a small home improvement business which proved to be quite successful and an outlet for him to display all his trade skills to various home owners and real estate companies.  Throughout his life, Mickey enjoyed it the most when he was outside tending to his vegetable gardens, fixing his truck or working in his yard.  He was always available to his family with anything from extensive home renovations or simple maintenance repairs where his skill for square, plumb and level were passed on to those around him. 

His greatest joy was his family. He especially delighted in seeing his family grow and loved spending time with his grandchildren and great grandchildren. 

Mickey is survived by his wife of 65 years Betty Jean,  three children – Michael,  Janice (Joe) and Stephen (Patty), his grandchildren Chris (Ana), Julie ( Matt), John, Greg (Mackenzie), Melissa (Addison), Michael (Samantha), Billy, Ricky and Erin and 11 great grandchildren.  He is also survived by his sister Theresa Parham. 

He was preceded in death by his parents and his 3 siblings, Jerry, Cliff and Peggy.
