E-mail #3 - Douglas Ray Hall, 68, of Cross Lanes died as a result of injuries sustained in a motorcycle accident on Saturday, August 7, 2010. He was retired from Don's Disposal with 39 years of service and attended Stonewall Jackson High School. He was a lance corporal with the U.S. Marine Corps, having served in the Vietnam War, and was a life member of the Teays Valley VFW. Doug enjoyed conducting bingo at the veterans' home in Barboursville and was a member of the King's Way Christian Church in Nitro.
He touched the lives of many people and was always more than willing to help anyone in need. If he was aware of any child that needed a bicycle, he made sure they got one. Doug always had a hug for you at the exact time you needed it most. He was a wonderful husband, father, grandfather and uncle and will be sadly missed but never forgotten.
From his special niece, Jenny, and others you have touched throughout the years, "Thank you for being the dad to us that you didn't have to be."
