Frank Price Hall III ’68

Frank Hall III '68The family of Frank Price Hall III, mourns the loss of a beloved husband, brother, uncle, stepfather, and grandfather. Frank passed away at his home on Lake Wylie after an extended illness on Thursday, January 4, 2018.

Born on July 9, 1944, in Charlotte, North Carolina, Frank spent his early life in Belmont.

He attended Asheville School and Davidson College and graduated from The Darlington School in Rome, Georgia, and St. Andrews University in Laurinburg, North Carolina. Frank continued his education throughout his life. His many interests included philosophy and spirituality.

In 1979, he met and later married his soul mate Janice Golden Freeman, who became over their 36 years of marriage his best friend, and confidante. Shortly after they married, they moved to Lake Wylie, South Carolina.

Frank will be remembered fondly by his friends and family for his warmth, energy and humor, marked by a funny yuk-yuk laugh! As a young man Frank excelled at water skiing, snow skiing and the game of golf, all of which he tackled enthusiastically with abandon.

During their married life, Frank and Jan devoted much of their time and resources to Light Haven, a spiritual center in the North Carolina foothills, which they co-founded and continue to support as benefactors. He and Jan were Angel Donors to Dream Nursery and Primary School in Kasenge, Uganda, serving pre-K-6th grade, which aids orphans and prisoners’ children who would otherwise be denied an education.

Frank is survived by his wife Jan; his sister, Nancy Green (Mrs. Holcombe T. Green, Jr.) of Atlanta, Georgia; his nephews Holcombe Green, III (Monica Green and their daughters Abigail and Cecily) and Frank Hall Green (Molly Green and their daughters Cece and Tucker), all of New York City.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Agape Hospice, 1316 Ebenezer Road, Rock Hill, SC 29732 or Light Haven, 1325 McEntire Road, Tryon, NC 28782.
