Wadsworth, OH

Jackson J. Hall of Wadsworth, age 82, passed away peacefully on January 24, 2010, surrounded by his loving family after a year long battle with cancer.
He was a man of many talents, interests, and titles, but more than anything will be remembered for his gentle manner, his arsenal of great jokes, and the loving way that he cared for his wife and family, always putting others first.

His youth was spent growing up in the household of Wadsworth Mayor and public servant, H. Jerry Hall, and Jackson learned from example to serve and minister to others through activities such as the Lions Club and several groups at his church of Annunciation, Akron.
He is survived by his wife of 59 years, Arlene, children; Melanie (David) Irwin, Fr. Jerry (Helene), Jenni (Drew) Griffith, 10 grandchildren and 1 great grandchild, all of whom he supported, encouraged, and loved, in every way that he was able.
