Billy Hall Death – Billy Hall sadly passed away on Friday, 1st of July, 2022 at the age of 18. His birth name is Isaiah Whittington Hall. But most people know him as Billy Hall. He died from multiple gunshot wounds after breaking up a fight. He also graduated from Joe T. Robinson High School and was scheduled to attend Pulaski Tech in order to fulfill his dream of becoming a diesel mechanic. Susan Fore Milligan took to Facebook to mourn the departure of Billy Hall.
He was a creative and imaginative boy who enjoyed comic books and legos. He filled notebooks with intricate drawings of imaginary robots, odd creatures, and spacecraft. Before he experienced the thrill of vehicles, trucks, and 4-wheelers, he pondered pursuing a career in engineering. He cherished driving and performing hands-on maintenance on autos. With his pals, he spent many late nights working on the engine of his 1993 F250 as they collectively figured out how it worked and how to fix it when it broke down. He never missed a chance to have fun, and those fun times typically involved a wrench, a four-wheel drive, mud puddles, close friends, and most likely a bonfire.
“Mikey tragically witnessed the death of his friend, Isaiah Hall (Billy), last Friday. It’s been a hard week watching our son struggle to make sense of a senseless act. I only post this because I wanted to share this beautifully written obituary about Billy. His legacy needs to be highlighted as much as possible because he was an amazing young man! Please join me in praying for Billy’s family and friends as they grieve.” said Susan Fore Milligan on Facebook.
He also enjoyed being outside and going hunting and fishing. He was a skilled hunter and excessively cautious. He rarely fired first, and he almost never missed. He valued the hunt more than anything else because of the wildlife, the great outdoors, and the camaraderie with his grandfather, uncles, cousins, and friends. His humor was a gift. He wasn’t a fashion statement at all. He was well-known for showing up to school in pajamas, a leather jacket, and cowboy boots with the American flag. Even when he was disrupting or late to his own class, he would drop by to say “I love you” or get coffee from one of his favorite teachers. His professors and classmates all adored him, despite the fact that he never turned in his schoolwork on time. He was the class clown and made an otherwise dull day in high school into one to remember.
Everyone who knew him had a particular place in their hearts for him. He never treated anyone disrespectfully and always showed them love, kindness, and generosity. He was the picture of serenity and a promoter of peace. He literally “laid down his life for his friends” because he loved God and his fellow human beings (John 15:13). Through his coworkers, relatives, and friends for whom he provided that last gift, his spirit will continue to exist in this world.
He is survived by his parents, Richard and Lydia Hall; his siblings, Abigail, Emma, Sarah Grace and John August Hall; his grandparents, Nancy Scott (Rick), Dr Whit Hall (Lisa), Patricia Gettings; his girlfriend, Amelia Johnson, and a host of aunts, uncles, cousins and wonderful friends.
