HALL III., John Patrick John Patrick Hall, III, lost a brief and courageous battle against leiomyosarcoma, a rare cancer, on August 3, 2017 with his loving family by his side.

John was educated at St. Michael's School, Greenhill School and graduated from the Kent School in Kent, CT. He was particularly proud of his Varsity letter in Crew, a legendary sport at Kent. It was at Greenhill and Kent where his passion for theater was cultivated and enriched his life. He is a graduate of the Meadows School of the Arts at Southern Methodist University, with a major in theater. Following graduation, John worked on several movies and toured with music groups before establishing his own company. John will be remembered for his independence, sense of humor, kindness to others, and time and commitment to his children's activities, mostly the Boy Scouts of America, where he was Eagle Scout Coordinator and Advancement Chair for the North Star District and Shooting Sports Staffer for the National Scout Jamboree. He has received the District Award of Merit, the highest volunteer recognition. He has been the Aquatics Coach for the Carrollton-Farmers Branch Cyclones Special Olympics sports teams. An enthusiastic Instructor and Master Scuba Diver, John loved his frequent diving trips to Grand Cayman, Cozumel and Belize.
