William A. ‘Homer’ Hall Sr.

PINE PLAINS — William A. “Homer” Hall Sr., 66, passed away at home with his loving family by his side on June 18, 2019. 

He was born on July 21, 1952, in Springfield, Vt., the son of Barbara (Pelkey) and Leon Hall. 

Homer was a heavy machine operator for over 34 years at Liberta Brothers in Pine Plains and most recently for Matt Blackburn Excavating in Gallatin, N.Y. 

Homer always enjoyed being with family and friends. He was always lending a helping hand to anyone who needed it. Homer loved to drive around town with his buddy, Garth, on his lap. He also enjoyed watching his Westerns and wrestling and having a few Coors Light. One of his favorite things to do on a weekend was stopping by Barry’s garage, enjoying a coffee and hanging out with his friends. 

Homer was a proud, hard-working man from a young age. No matter what job site, he wanted to get the job done. At times he would be stubborn and skip breaks and lunch because he loved to be on his dozer. From the beginning to his last breath, Homer was a fighter. Throughout his battle he never worried about himself, only his family.

On June 3, 1984, in Pine Plains, he married Marie Elena (Brescia) Hall. She survives him at home.

In addition to his loving wife, Ria, survivors include two daughters, Christy Hill and her husband, Michael, and Marisa Hall and her husband, Myles; two sons, Mark Hall and his wife, Katrina, and William A. “BJ” Hall Jr. and his wife, Natasha; a granddaughter, Emerson; two sisters, Kathy Morrill and Teena Hall; and three brothers, Gary, Bruce and Danny.

He was predeceased by a father, Fred; his mother, Barbara; a brother, Ricky; and a sister, Becky.

A celebration of life will be held at 1 p.m. on Saturday, July 6, at the Pine Plains Lions Club. Interment will be at the convenience of the family.

In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to the Pine Plains Rescue Squad and/or the Ladies Auxiliary, P.O. Box 668, Pine Plains, NY 12567; or Pine Plains Community Food Locker, 2852 Church St., Pine Plains, NY 12567.
