OLD TOWN – James Thomas Hall was surrounded by his loved ones as he was welcomed home to God Sunday morning, May 16, 2010. He was born Feb. 21, 1966, in Lawrenceville, Ill. He grew up in Lawrenceville, Ill., and then moved to Florida as a teenager, where he became an avid surfer and master scuba diver. When he moved to Colorado he enjoyed photographing the outdoors, riding his motorcycle and spending time with his special niece and nephews, Sissy, Christopher and Michael. In 2000 he moved to Maine to be closer to his father and cousins. He is the beloved son of Harold Gilmore Hall Jr. of Blue Hill; the adored brother of John Hall of Cocoa Beach, Fla., Elizabeth Hall of Lake Forest, Calif., and Constance Miles of Littleton, Colo.; the cherished cousin of Sherri Cunningham of Orono; dearest friend of Renee Byers and her children, Kenneth and Elizabeth of Old Town; and very special confidante of Roxanne Sinclaire of Orono. James is also survived by his maternal uncle, Thomas Foltz of Yorktown, N.Y., and his children, Lisa Foltz Allan and Michael Foltz and their children; his cousins, Lewis and Ann Rosebush of Orono, Col. Linwood and Patricia Feeney of Bangor, Bruce and Carolyn Farnsworth of Orono, Carlson and Carolyn Williams of Glastonbury, Conn., and their families. He was predeceased by his loving mother, Lynda E. Miles formerly of Colorado; maternal grandmother, “Mimi” Erma Mae Foltz formerly of Colorado; and paternal grandparents, Harold Gilmore Hall Sr. and Hazel Lillian Hall formerly of Blue Hill. James will be greatly missed by all his friends, especially at his uncle’s business, Pat’s Pizza, and his family and everyone’s lives he touched so deeply. At James’ request, services will be private. James loved children, so those who wish may donate in his memory to the Make-A-Wish Foundation, 87 Elm St., Suite 203, Camden, ME 04843 or Children’s Miracle Network, P.O. Box 931, Bangor, ME 04401-0931. A service of Brookings-Smith, 133 Center St., Bangor. Condolences to the family may be expressed at www.BrookingsSmith.com.
