I only got to know Trooper Hall in the last few years. But just being around him briefly, I detected the qualities described in the obituary above. I sensed immediately I was interacting with a man of the highest character, courtesy, and kindness. I wish I had met him much earlier.
To the family and loved ones, my heartfelt condolences. You and the NRV have both lost a fine, fine individual.

My husband and I often eat at Patty’s Kitchen on Mondays when Austin would eat there with a group of men, and he always came over to chat a minute. Kristi and Scott, you won’t be surprised to hear that you and your families were his favorite topics. He was so proud of all of you! He was a fine man, and the obituary description is exactly how I would describe him. As time passes and your pain eases, I’m sure you’ll have wonderful memories.
