YARMOUTH — Norman F. Hall, 77, of Freeport, died Aug. 24  with his daughter at his side.

He was born Aug. 20, 1937, in Portland, a son of Mary (Adair) and Arthur Hall. He attended local schools, graduated from Portland High School and attended the University of Maine at Portland-Gorham.

He met Carol Ann Donley while they were both working at Northeast Airlines, and they were married on May 14, 1960.

Hall loved airplanes, and worked for over 50 years in the airline industry, 40 of them with Delta. He and his wife traveled extensively, and he was a fan of all things technological. He was also a great sports fan, and loved to watch hockey and the Red Sox. But nothing gave him greater pleasure than being on the sidelines, watching and cheering his grandchildren.

Hall was an active member of Holy Martyrs Catholic Church in Falmouth. He also had a small tax-preparation business for many years. He had the trait of Yankee ingenuity and resourcefulness that he readily shared and taught his family. 

He is survived by his three children, sons Mike Hall and wife, Leona, of Pownal, and Dave Hall and wife, Patty, of Sutton, Massachusetts, and daughter Barb Brown and husband, Mike, of Freeport; eight grandchildren, Andy, Erin, Daniel, Rachel, Sarah and Monica Hall, and Alan and Jen Brown; his brother, John Hall and wife, Mary, of Westbrook; and a large extended family and many friends.

He was predeceased by his wife Carol in 2008.

Visiting hours were held Aug. 24 at Lindquist Funeral Home, in Yarmouth, and a Mass of Christian burial was celebrated Aug. 27 at Holy Martyrs Catholic Church, in Falmouth.

For those who wish, donations may be made in Hall’s memory to The Jimmy Fund.
