He was born in Ashland on May 4, 1930 to Mercy Eleanor (Alexander) and Claud Francis Hall, the last of eight children.
All his school years were in Ashland where he graduated in 1949. He enlisted in the U.S. Air Force and was honorably discharged in June of 1950.
Roger married the love of his life, Nancy Arney, on July 28, 1950. She is the daughter of Marie and Harold Arney.
In December of 1950, they moved to Klamath Falls when Roger was hired as a groundman for the California-Oregon Power Co. in January of 1951. While living there, their three children were born .
He subsequently became a lineman and then transferred to the Marketing Department. In 1964, he was transferred to the Medford Office of the Pacific Power & Light Co. The Halls lived in Ashland until 1971, when they were transferred to Pendleton. They were transferred to Lakeview in 1978. Along the way, they made many new friends while staying in touch with old friends.
Roger retired from Pacificorp in 1989 while living in Lakeview. Over the years, he loved playing his piano for relaxation, and he enjoyed fishing and hunting with friends and his boys.
