Norman Lee Hall

Norman Lee Hall went home to be with his Lord in the early morning hours of Tuesday, May 15, 2012. Norman was born May 7, 1941, in Winifred, W.Va., to the late John Hall and Mable Spencer. Norman was later adopted by the late Frances Irene Watson-Hall.

He moved to Leavenworth in 1961. During his early years in Leavenworth, he worked briefly for Cushing Memorial Hospital in Leavenworth, the VA Medical Center and the Leavenworth Foundry “Kramers”. In the later 60s, Norman finally found his niche and began a career at Gould National Battery Factory in Leavenworth, where he later retired after more than 20 years of faithful service to the ‘battery factory’. But before retiring, in 1981, he met and married his true love Yvonne (January) Hall to which this union lasted until his death, 31 years. Norman was not quite ready for full retirement so he went to work part-time for the Leavenworth Times and then went into business with his father-in-law, the late Richard January and formed N&J Disposal. Norman later took over the company when his father-in-law retired and continued to run the company until he became ill.

Those that have gone on before him are his parents and one brother, Johnny Hall.

He leaves to keep him cherished in memory are his wife, Yvonne of Leavenworth; children, Norman Hall, Jr., of Austin, Texas; Norma Morris of Columbia, Md., Angela (Chris) Burch of Augusta, Ga., Robert Hall of Leavenworth, Charles (Maggie) Fitzhugh, III of Leavenworth and Angela (Marc) Miller of Kansas City, Mo; his siblings, James Spencer of Leavenworth, Delores Bailey of Riverside, Calif., Ada German of Chesapeake, W. Va., Cynthia Ann Hall of Jonesboro, Ga., Robert Hall of Leavenworth and Flora Jean Hall of St. Albans, W.Va.; 11-grandchildren; two great-grandchildren; and a host of nieces and nephews.
