Charles E. Hall

March 15, 1932 ‒ February 03, 2019

Galena, Ohio

Charles E. Hall, age 86 of Galena passed away Sunday, February 3, 2019 at Grant Medical Center.

Born in Powell on March 15, 1932 he was the son of the late Dorothy Ware and George Rogers. He graduated from Orange High School in 1950, where he played baseball and basketball.

Charles began working for Cellar Lumber in Westerville and in 1952 he was drafted into the US Army, proudly serving in Germany during the Korean Conflict.

He married his high school sweetheart, the former Amelia Ann Barrows in 1953. Together they have shared almost 67 wonderful years, through thick and thin.

A lifelong farmer, he also owned and operated Charles E. Hall Custom Builder in addition to a water hauling business. He also worked as the farm manager for the LeVeque Family Farm. As a community steward he served a number of years as a Trustee for Berlin Township and was a volunteer firefighter for Berlin Twp. Fire Department.

An avid baseball player and fan, he played fast pitch softball for years and was quite the pitcher in his day. Charles often spoke of his time playing baseball while in the US Army with Willie Mays. He was also a gifted storyteller, impressionist, and pool player.

Both ornery and fun loving, he enjoyed watching ballgames of the Blue Jackets, OSU Buckeyes, and New England Patriots. A passionate coon hunter, he also enjoyed bowling, camping, and Monday night holiday poker games.

Charles was generous and witty too. He treasured time spent with his family, most especially his grandchildren. The work of his community service will long be remembered, just as his charm.

In addition to his beloved wife Amelia Ann, he is also survived by son Craig (Angela) Hall of Galena, daughter Carol (Randy) Hughes of Sunbury; 6 grandchildren: Duke, Courtney, Nathaniel, Cortney, Laura, Emily; 3 great-grandchildren: Korben, Riley, Alex, and brother James (JoEllen) Rogers of Galena.

Friends may call from 5-8 p.m. on Thursday at the Snyder-Rodman Funeral Center, 101 Valleyside Dr. at W. William St., Delaware where services celebrating the life of Charles Hall will be held 11:00 a.m. on Friday. Burial will follow in Cheshire Cemetery with military honors.

  • Amelia Ann, I’d like to say how much you both mean to me and my family. All of those years growing up across and the nextdoor to you. Charlie was a special person. I have so many fond memories of him. He was so good to us when we were kids. I remember Charlie playing basketball and football with us and making us laugh so hard. I remember Charlie taking Craig and myself to do the chores at the Le Veque farm although Craig might tell you that I didn’t do much of the work… lol. I think Charlie was the one that gave me my Nick name (Slim). He called me Slim because I was a chubby kid and I always wanted to be Slim. May God Be With You Amelia Ann, Craig & Carol. Ask for Him to comfort you in your time of mourning. I love you all! Slim aka Tim Stepp & Wife Barb Stepp

  • So sorry to learn of Charlie’s passing. Sure will miss seeing him around. He was an avid basketball and baseball player and fan for life. Orange School was a better place for his many years there. Charles joins the team of other Orange (Trojans) up in heaven, and just imagine with that new perfect body that 2nd. place state championship now becomes that elusive title. Amelia and family,along with brother (Jim) condolences to all.

  • Amelia and Family, I am so sorry for your loss. Charlie was a “staple” in the Orange and Berlin communities and we will miss seeing him out and about. He has left all of us with many special memories. Am sure he was “with the Patriots” Sunday. May the Lord give you comfort and strength during this difficult time.

  • Dear Amelia, Craig and family,
    Our deepest condolences on the loss of your beloved Charlie. A wonderful community neighbor for many many years, those were the days. Such a terrific legacy of love for his family, church, friends, community and work ethics. His “special” trait was choosing his friends so that they could become his extended family. The community mourns with all of you.

    God be with you..

  • How the years have flown by since we were all at Orange High School. My thoughts and prayers are with you.

  • My Uncle Charlie, one of the kindest men I’ve ever known. You have left such deep and loving memories for so many of us. Knowing you are very much at peace and supposing you found mother May and uncle Bud there and are reconnecting in the most important ways.

  • I have fond memories of Charlie when I was a child. He would come and visit my dad Earl quite often with Jim and the laughter was contagious. They had tears in their eyes from laughing so much. I thought to myself, I hope I have a friend like that one day. He’s a very kind man who will be missed and I will not forget him. My condolences to all.

  • My recollection of Charlie was when we played baseball against him in school and with him during summers. Brought back memories of those happy days. Having known Charlie as a good friend during those days, I’m sure he will be missed. May he rest in peace. and may the family receive comfort in this difficult time.
