Troy Ronald “Ronnie” Hall

Troy Ronald “Ronnie” Hall passed away on Jan. 10, 2024, at 11:09 p.m., surrounded by his family. Ronnie took great pride knowing when he drew his last breath on Earth, he was going to see Jesus’ face. Ronnie looked forward to seeing his lovely bride Lelia of 57 years, who went to heaven before he did. Ronnie longed to hear Lelia fuss at him for taking so long to get home. Ronnie went to Clinton High School. After high school, he worked as a mechanic, construction worker, handyman, and laborer, and in many factories. Ronnie worked at Byrd’s Wrecker Service for good friend Dennis Byrd for several years. Ronnie retired from Pathway Bellows in 2003. He volunteered with the Anderson County Rescue Squad for many years. He was known to be able to physically tear doors from cars with his bare hands. Ronnie was a hard worker, one of the strongest men you would ever meet. He was a gentle giant. Ronnie was preceded in death by his lovely bride Lelia, his parents, George and Dessie Hall, brother’s George Jr. and JE Hall, sisters Shirley Taylor and Martha Lou Scarboro. He is survived by children Ricky Hall and wife Connie of Clinton, Tennessee, Robin Elliott and husband Wesley of Lake City Tennessee, Rodney Hall and wife Kim of Jonesborough Tennessee; Grandchildren Justin Hall, Dr. Brittney (Hall) Kerber and husband Dr. John Kerber, Austin Elliott (Ashley Carl), Angela Elliott (Jacob Baxter), Kristen Hall, and Ryan Hall.
