    Mr. Hall was my 9th grade English teacher, enjoyed his class and his perspective. He was always supportive even after you were no longer his student. He will be missed.

  2. Raven Eberhart says:

    Coach Hall was my basketball coach, English teacher but more importantly, my friend. He was there to get me through some of the hardest times of my teenage years. I will never forget the support and guidance he gave so freely. That support and guidance didn’t stop after I graduated either, he still remained one of my biggest supporters. He is so very loved and will be missed dearly.

  5. Laurie Maddox says:

    When I played on the 8th grade basketball team practices were at 6am. In order for my dad to get to work on time he would drop me off at 5:30am. Coach Hall would show up at that time so I wasn’t left alone and we would shoot the basketball around with me while we waited for others to show up. Sometimes we would talk, other times we were silent but that extra time together, to either listen or offer advice, made a difference for me and I appreciated his time.

    Forever missed, never forgotten. I know you’re flying high & “playing in traffic” for all of us

  15. Brenda S James (Campuzano) says:

    There are no words to be able to fill in all that was in the dash that was his life. The heart only knows the many phrases or memory that touched so many lives. I truly have one. He called me on the phone June of 1995. He could not be at the Sports Banquet and told me that he was very upset. The years he had known my daughter that it was going to be an honor to present the Athletic Leadership Award to my daughter Gesina. I know I felt honored all the years he had been at the High School to have him tell me it would have been an honor for him made me cry, but he also praised my other two. Little did he know the thousands of students he had taught felt the same about him. Kay you have always touched my life from the Doctors Office until forever. He will shine on for your family forever. He is another star among many. God Bless your family.

  16. Amber Bauserman says:

  17. Morgan Evans says:

    I had Coach Hall for English in my freshman year at SHS and enjoyed having him as a teacher. I also would hangout in his class before lunch in my sophomore year and enjoyed talking to him. I will always remember him, his class, and how kind of a teacher he was. Rest in Peace Bruce Hall. I will miss you deeply and say prayers for your family.
