William K. “Bill” Hall Jr., 64, of Clarks Summit died Sunday November 18 at Hospice of the Sacred Heart after an unexpected and swift cancer diagnosis. With his beloved and devoted wife Maureen (Mo) and daughter Maggie constantly by his side he fought his illness with grace and dignity. He was surrounded by friends and family who provided Mo, Maggie and Bill the support and love to deal with his devastating disease.

He was a 1971 graduate of Abington Heights High School and worked most of his life as an Artisan Carpenter.

Bill was an avid outdoorsman and enjoyed hunting, particularly spring turkey , fly fishing, and traveling.to Lake Ontario often to master his art of catching Rainbow trout and Salmon. Fish On! However, the most important piece of Bill’s life was how proud he was of his daughter Maggie, as he proved by living to see her 18th birthday, his love and devotion will be profoundly missed.
