Floyd "Bud" Devoe Jordan Jr. - MARCH 7, 1935 – NOVEMBER 14, 2021

Jordan

Floyd "Bud" Devoe Jordan Jr. - MARCH 7, 1935 – NOVEMBER 14, 2021 Gregarious, enterprising and hilarious, Floyd “Bud” Devoe Jordan’s first love was family: his wife of 57 years, Marjie; their children, Eason, Kelly and Michael; and their grandchildren, Zoe, Dylan, Liam, Lily and Marcus. They adored Bud’s wisdom, wit and love.

As the patriarch of the Jordan family, he led by example and dreamed up and enforced such family rules as “You can do whatever you want to do, but you can’t stop people from doing what they want to do.”

Bud’s Stuart, Florida community of five decades knew him as an investment manager, a friend, a philanthropist, a parishioner, a golfer, a juggler, a clown, a dancer, and an FSU football fanatic.

Born in Alabama the son of an accountant mother and hardware store owner father, Bud was born into a world mired in depression and world war, giving him the scrappy go-getter attitude and self-made success for which he was renowned.

Bud’s remarkable life experiences empowered him to be a terrific storyteller. One of the stories he most liked to share was about how he and Martin Luther King, Jr. teamed up in the 1950s to make ice cream for the Sunday picnics after church services in Montgomery, Alabama.

With no benefactor or loan to finance his college education, he sold shaved ice treats on street corners in Marianna, Florida to pay his way through Florida State University, where he was a business major and a clown and juggler in the FSU Flying High Circus. He went on to become one of FSU’s biggest supporters as a member of the Golden Chiefs and donor to the FSU business school, where he mentored students and which in 2011 inducted Bud into its hall of fame.

After his college education, Bud moved to Atlanta, where he was a homebuilder and entrepreneur, the inventor and distributor of cleaning products, giving him the money to go to stock brokerage school in New York. Bud and Marjie were married in Atlanta in 1964.

In 1969, Bud and Marjie moved to Florida, where Bud worked as a stockbroker with EF Hutton, Prudential, Legg Mason and Merrill Lynch. He served as the first-ever investment manager in Stuart, where he worked for 50 years before retiring from Merrill Lynch at age 85.

Bud and Marjie were driving forces for good in Stuart, where he co-founded the Economic Council of Martin County, the Martin County Community Foundation and the St. Lucie River Initiative, now the Rivers Coalition. He was the biggest backer of the groundbreaking birthing center Marjie founded and ran in Stuart.

Bud, Marjie and their family treasured their time together both at home and during their travels, including to the former Soviet Union, central and western Europe, China, Cuba, the Middle East and beyond.

Vibrant and fun-loving until the end, Bud and Marjie dazzled as the king and queen of the dance floor at their granddaughter Zoe’s late October wedding.

A memorial service for Bud will happen at 2 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 4 at First United Methodist Church, 1500 S. Kanner Highway, Stuart.

In lieu of flowers, the family asks that donations be made to the Community Foundation of Martin-St. Lucie, the First United Methodist Church of Stuart general fund or the church’s Cuba Sister Church Fund.

Kathleen M Greene - September 20, 1936 - October 25, 2021

Greene

Kathleen M Greene - September 20, 1936 - October 25, 2021 Kathleen Mary (McQuillan) Greene was born on September 20, 1936, to Charlotte and Gordon McQuillan, in Queens Village, NY. She was preceded by her older brother Roy McQuillan, and sister, Charlotte Miller. Kathleen attended St. Mary’s Catholic High School in Manhasset, NY. It is there that she would meet her future husband of 65 years, Charles C. Greene Jr. of Bay Ridge,Brooklyn NY. Soon after meeting, he was her comfort, through the sudden loss of her father.

While Charlie served in the United States Army, Kathy worked in Manhattan as a bookkeeper. They married in 1956 and honeymooned in Canada. When Charlie’s service was complete, the couple settled in Northport, NY and were very active members of St. Philip Neri Catholic Church and School. It is here that they would raise their family of 6 children; Charles Patrick of Los Angeles CA. Patricia Marie of Montauk, NY, Kevin Francis and family of Bainbridge Island, WA, Kathleen Mary of Effingham, NH, Theresa Ann of Stuart, FL and Eileen Elizabeth and family of Stuart, FL. Kathleen and her family shared a lifetime of love and laughter in the humble, always expanding, walls of their home there.

In 1985 the couple moved to Montauk, NY and Charlie built his princess her dream home. Kathy enjoyed entertaining, and she would hold countless parties throughout their years there.

It’s during that time, She would begin her new role as Grandma. If Kathy Greene was a great Mom, there would be no word to describe how special a Grandma she was.

Over the years, Kathleen would be blessed with 9 grandchildren; Michael, Dede, Audrey, Richard, Benjamin, Ella, Heidi, Phoebe and Riley and 4 great-grandchildren; Charlie, Zoey, Mila and Vienna.

Kathy and Charlie were adventurers, and always loved to travel. From romantic, international getaways, to several cross country escapades, visiting their children and grandchildren they always had a story to tell when they returned.

That same adventurous nature, fueled by the love and faith in each other and God, would see them make several more moves; in 1998 to West Ossipee, NH and finally after years as snowbirds, to Stuart, FL in 2016

Wherever they lived, the couple were active members of their local Catholic Church. Kathleen served in countless ministries at every parish she was a member of. From leading crafting clubs, running monthly Bingo and holiday bazaars, to using her bookkeeping skills in the office and volunteering in the school lunchroom. She was an extraordinary minister, and served in the hospital Eucharist ministry, something she felt very blessed to be able to do. Kathleen has always had a devotion to our lady, Mary and would host rosary prayer groups with Charlie regularly.

A devoted wife and mother. Kathleen’s main focus in life was her ever growing family. She was a selfless woman, thinking only of those around her.

Surrounded by love, She lived life to its fullest with joy, an infectious laugh, and always surrounded by the beautiful chaos and noise of a crowded home full of love. Kathy never passed a dance floor by in all her years. She loved nothing more than to be dancing with her friends and family. She tirelessly sewed costumes, typed homework, cooked, cleaned, served on PTA boards, volunteered at Church, made blankets for servicemen and women, and still managed to get 6 kids to the beach almost every day of the summer.

Tierney

Dr. James P. Tierney - February 05, 1937 - October 19, 2021 Dr. James Patrick Tierney of Palm City, Florida and Southampton, New York passed away peacefully on October 19, 2021. He was 84 years old.

Jim was born in Brooklyn, NY on February 5, 1937, to Stephen Patrick and Mary Gotard Tierney. Graduating early from Bushwick High School, he attended Fordham University earning his degree in Pharmacy. While at Fordham he completed the Reserve Officer Training program and was commissioned as an officer in 1958. He served as a rifle range officer at Fort Sam Houston in Texas before following his dream of medical school at the Philadelphia College of Medicine, where he was President of the Class of 1964. He earned medical licenses in four states, and opened a medical practice in Maspeth, New York.

Over his 40 year career he made many house calls, delivered babies, and arranged adoptions, often treating multiple generations of the same family. He loved the art as much as the science of medicine, and would spend extra time talking to his patients to learn more about their whole lives.

Before starting medical school, Jim returned to New York and married Kathleen Allen on August 27, 1960. As Jim and Kathleen welcomed two sons and a daughter to their home in Garden City, New York, you would often find Jim at the center of a circle of family and friends telling tales that would end in laughter -- or maybe a groan. Between supporting his children’s activities and enjoying time with friends and family, he was active in the Elks and the Cherry Valley Club. He particularly enjoyed creating imaginative meals and wine pairings for dinner parties. The Tierney's built a summer home in Southampton, New York where he reveled in the sunsets and bemoaned the chill that always started at Labor Day, and enjoyed gatherings with friends at the North Fork Country Club..

As their children grew and married, Jim and Kathleen Tierney moved to the Palm City community of Harbour Ridge in Florida in 2001. There Jim continued his storytelling as a frequent dinner host, an avid golfer, and the owner of a discerning palate that he shared with the Wine Club at Harbour Ridge.

James P. Tierney leaves his wife of 61 years, Kathleen Allen Tierney, his son Terrence and wife Lynne, his son Christopher and wife Margaret LaMonica, and his daughter Suzanne Johnson and husband Paul Johnson, and five grandchildren, Caitlyn, Maggie, Phoebe, Kevin, and Quinn, as well as numerous members of extended family and great friends.

A wake will be held on Tuesday, Nov 2, 2021 from 3 to 5pm at Forest Hills funeral home, 2001 SW Murphy Road, Palm City, Fl. Funeral services will be Wednesday, Nov, 3 at 10:00 a.m. at Holy Redeemer Catholic Church, 1454 SW Mapp Rd, Palm City, FL 34990.

Helen Elizabeth Vann - MARCH 5, 1924 – OCTOBER 17, 2021

Vann

Helen Elizabeth Vann - MARCH 5, 1924 – OCTOBER 17, 2021 Born: March 1924; (Scranton PA); Died: October 2021 (Pt. St Lucie, FL)

Helen (Betty) Vann joined her beloved Ken on October 17, 2021. She was pre-deceased by Ken, her husband of 73 years, in 2015, as well as three grandchildren – Drew, Matthew, and Laurie. She is survived by their four daughters: Carole Dasher, Cheryl Vann-Gordon, Melanie (Doug) Gorman and Michele (Dave) Russell; Seven grandchildren: Ted, Courtney, Sean, Sonya, David, Devin, Casey; And, sixteen great-grandchildren.

A life well-lived: Betty often marveled how a girl, who rarely ventured beyond her hometown of Scranton until she was 17 then spent her life traveling the globe as a Navy wife and also having fun during their post-Navy life. She left home after high school graduation in the summer of 1941, heading to the big city of DC for a job. As someone sang, she was just 17. This lively redhead caught the eye of a sweet handsome brilliant sailor who was just 18. The stories of life in DC after Pearl Harbor, especially during blackouts, with their other teenaged friends are both serious and teenage fun. Ken and Betty married in the summer of 1942, and soon after Ken was shipped out to Guantanamo manning a sub-chaser during WWII. Betty, now pregnant, moved to Miami to be with Ken’s family while he was deployed.

Betty spent almost 30 years following Ken around the globe as the Navy shipped him here, there, and everywhere, delivering children where they happened to be stationed – from Miami to DC to Japan. She managed to get these children and their household from Miami to Guam (and back), to California to the East Coast and back multiple times, to Japan and back to the States two times, with 3 moves in Japan. These moves included riding out typhoons in a Quonset hut (no AC) in Guam, living in a Japanese house in a Japanese village, and all types of base housing. Betty and Ken added their own side trips including visiting Hong Kong in the early 60s.

Upon Ken’s retirement from the US Navy, Ken and Betty settled back home in Florida but did not slow down. As members of the Miami Outboard Club, they spent countless days and nights (and many hours of the wee morning) enjoying their friends and family on the water and off. Their favorite adventure was cruising on the big cruise ships, mainly with groups of friends or family. They especially cherished the many cruises with daughter Cheryl and her husband Rick and were always thrilled with the unique backcountry tours that Rick took them on.

Ken and Betty were incredible dancers, dancing at parties, weddings, and on cruise ships well into their 80s. Betty was was extremely proud to note that they cruised to every major Caribbean island, as well as through the Mediterranean, and the Panama Canal. They loved to share details of these trips, including the very interesting trip through the ruins of Pompeii and the Museu de l’Erotica in Barcelona. They also bowled all over the world, and were still bowling in leagues until their 90s. Until recently, Betty was still advising bowlers to “Follow through”, “Step like this”, “Use this type ball”, etc.

Betty loved her family, and while she may have provided her usual advice to her children and grandchildren, she also loved to play with them. She celebrated so many milestones of birthdays, graduations, weddings and new babies. There are too many memories to count but each one of her family has his/her own treasured ones. The stories will live on.

A graveside services for Helen will be held Monday, November 1, 2021 from 1:00 PM to 1:15 PM at Florida National Cemetery, 6502 SW 102 Avenue, Bushnell, FL 33513.

Betty was distressed immensely by the thought of hungry children, saying that she could not imagine anything worse as a parent than having a hungry child with no food to feed them. In lieu of flowers, please contribute to your local food bank or other means of feeding hungry children.

Michael John Weimer - February 12, 1963 - October 15, 2021 Michael John Weimer – beloved husband, father, son, brother, uncle, DraegerMan, Mr. Fix-it, and dad-joke expert, suddenly passed from a heart attack, at age 58, on Friday, October 15th, 2021, in Martin North Hospital in Stuart, FL. This native Long Islander made a home and tight connections wherever he went, from West Virginia to Pennsylvania, Ontario, and finally, Raleigh NC.

Mike will be sorely missed by his wife, Marie-Pierre Lussier; three daughters, Autumn, Hailey, and Amber Weimer; his siblings, Malini Singer, George Weimer III and Stephanie Weimer; his father, George Weimer Jr. (d: Barbara Blouch); and the army of friends and colleagues this magnetic man attracted over the years.

Mike had an innate ability to get along with and talk to anyone. He was just as comfortable conversing with a 3-year-old as he was with an 80-year-old, a physician or a janitor, etc. More importantly, he made them feel comfortable, understood and respected. If you were lucky enough to have known Mike, you were blessed. Everyone loved him.

This speed demon spent many beautiful days riding around on his Honda Rune or going “topless” in his convertible Porsche Boxster, looking for the next adventure. Mike’s bliss was finally complete when Marie gave in and adopted Sadie, their two-year-old Lab-Rhodesian mix this past spring. Sadie brought him joy, laughter (and forced exercise!) after his long weeks of work travel.

Mike started his interest in medicine at the age of 10, as an assistant, teaching advanced life support courses. When he was old enough, he joined the local volunteer fire department. His EMS familiarity and his natural ability with electronics and his skill to fix almost anything lead to a job installing and repairing respiratory therapy equipment. This was followed by several years at the ALS communication center relaying communications between medics in the field and the medical control physicians in the hospital. The ALS communication center was located a double door from the emergency department. Mike almost always worked the night shift, and more often than not he was the only male in the hospital, so he was called upon to assist with the occasional unruly patient and many procedures (often technically beyond his level of training and certification). All of these experiences lead to his current position with Draeger.

During his 24 years of dedicated employment with Draeger Medical in the US and Canada, Mike definitively bled Draeger blue. His loved ones would hear him point out every movie and TV series that used Draeger equipment; get gifted Draeger swag for birthdays and Christmas; and be directed to the “right” Draeger equipped healthcare facilities. Over these years, Mike became well known and respected at Draeger for his leadership, hard work and dedication. He developed strong bonds and friendships throughout all levels of the organization by virtue of his patient, supportive mentorship, teaching skills and twisted sense of humor.

This incredible, one-and-only man will be primarily remembered for his huge heart, generosity, patience and ability to connect will all those that crossed his path. Mike was always available to provide a helping hand, whether it be homework assistance, to install a dishwasher and ceiling fans, driving stranded friends or just provide a thoughtful ear. His charitable and giving nature was like no other. Mike taught us to open our hearts, love deeply, and have faith that truth and one’s good actions will always prevail. So let go, relax and remember to have fun.

Travis Dafandy Cherenfant - April 25, 1997 - October 14, 2021

Cherenfant

Travis Dafandy Cherenfant - April 25, 1997 - October 14, 2021 Travis Dafandy Cherenfant made his entrance into the world on April 25th, 1997 at St. Mary's Hospital in West Palm Beach, Florida. His unexpected exit happened on October 14th, 2021.

Although Travis grew up in the Lake Worth area of West Palm Beach, his mother made sure that he was able to spend quality time with other family members in their home country--Haiti.

Travis was musically talented and had a great love of music. He attended Lake Worth Community High School where he was an active member of the band and played the drums. He also enjoyed playing the piano. After graduating from high school in 2016, Travis began his employment at Bealls Outlet. He worked as an associate but was promoted to supervisor.

By the time he met his wife, Inga Jonsson, he had just stepped down to working as an associate again. Inga and Travis were drawn to one another. Even though Inga was aware that Travis had enlisted into the military and was waiting to be deployed they remained in contact with each other.

Travis served in the navy as an (SN) Seaman until his separation from the military in 2020. Upon returning home, he continued his education at Palm Beach State Community College. He began working at several different places until he landed his job at Valvoline. Travis was a Senior Technician and was officially being trained to become an Assistant Manager.
Travis and Inga got married on October 29th, 2020. They would've been celebrating their first year of marriage.

Travis was a kind, loving, caring, gentle soul. Just an overall lovely human being. He was beautiful inside and outside. Travis will be greatly missed and his death is a tragic reminder that everyone should take care of their mental health.

He is survived by his wife, Inga Jonsson Cherenfant; brother, Javaughn Cherenfant; sister-in-law (Azia Curry-Jonsson); mother, Samantha Joseph; father, Ephrem Cherenfant; grandmother, Jeannette Pierre; Nephew, Theodore Graham Cherenfant and a host of aunts, uncles, cousins, relatives, and friends.

Emma Krause - JANUARY 23, 1926 – OCTOBER 12, 2021

kRAUSE

Emma Krause - JANUARY 23, 1926 – OCTOBER 12, 2021 Emma (Arnott) Krause, 95, of Palm City, passed away on Tuesday evening, October 12, 2021, at the Hay Madeira House of the Treasure Coast Hospice, Stuart.

Emma was born January 23, 1926, in Sussex, NJ, the daughter of the late John W. and Ida E. (Lott) Arnott. The family moved to Newton, NJ, where she grew up and later met her first husband, Joseph Trinca, Jr. She and Joseph made their home in Swartswood, NJ, for many years. Traveling to St Augustine, Fl, during the winter months, they grew to love Florida, and eventually moved to St. Augustine in the late 1950’s. After a particularly cold winter (with snow) in St. Augustine, they decided to move farther south. As Joe said, “We didn't move to Florida to see snow.”.

Their southward trek ended in Palm City, Florida in 1960. There Emma and Joe found the Florida they had dreamed of: palm trees, oranges, fishing off the dock in the front yard, warm weather, and no snow. Unfortunately, Joseph passed away in 1979.

A few years later, Emma met and married Otto “Herman” Krause. Emma and Herman had many happy years together. They had a camper and traveled all over the United States. They also loved to square dance and even taught classes. For the last several years they have stayed close to their home in Palm City, near their family.

She is survived by her husband of 40 years, Otto "Herman" Krause of Palm City; her son, Joseph Trinca III and his wife Karen of Palm City; her daughter, Joann Gregg and husband Darrell of Jensen Beach; her granddaughter, Michelle Fielstra and her husband Toby; her grandson, Michael Lambie; her great granddaughters, Hayley Fielstra and Michale Lambie, and her great grandson, Hayden Lambie.

She was always ready with a smile, an encouraging word, or a helping hand. She will be missed by all who knew her. Emma was a sweet and caring woman loved by many.

Edwina Josephine Vickers - January 25, 1926 - October 09, 2021

Vickers

Edwina Josephine Vickers - January 25, 1926 - October 09, 2021 Edwina Josephine Vickers was born on January 6, 1926 (her birth was officially registered on the 25th) and went home to be with The Lord Jesus on October 9, 2021. She was the 5th of 14 children born to Arthur and Esther Roye in Jamaica, West Indies. Edwina, called “Jussette (Juss)” by her immediate family and “Gigi” by her grandchildren, was very outgoing with the strength and heart of a lion. She played the piano but abruptly ended her lessons after her teacher hit her fingers with a ruler for playing incorrectly. She was known as a “tom-boy” and was proud to be called a farmer's daughter. She grew up on the mountains of Craig Head, Mandeville, and moved to Westmoreland after marrying William (Joss) Vickers on February 14, 1953, 3 months after they met. She was the mother of 6 children, 4 boys and 2 girls. She wrote of herself… ”I’m a very straight-forward person and I'm determined. I was very strict with the family, loved all my children, but was very strict with them.”

In Jamaica, Edwina was actively involved in politics, a member of the Peoples National Party, and whatever the assignment, she carried it out. She immigrated to the United States in 1967, and her husband and children followed shortly after. While raising a family and working full-time at Bellevue Hospital in New York City, she attended Medgar Evers College and graduated with a bachelor’s degree in Nursing. Edwina worked for many years as a nursing supervisor in Brooklyn, N.Y. before retiring to Port St. Lucie, Florida in 1991.


In 1978 she accepted the Lord Jesus Christ and committed her life to serving Him. She unashamedly testified to all who would listen, of His sacrifice and the reality of eternity. She exercised by walking 3 to 5 miles almost every day because it gave her quiet time to pray to her Heavenly Father. After retiring, Edwina took art lessons and became an avid oil painter. For everyone she led to the Lord Jesus, she gave them an oil painting of their choice. She was very active in her church fellowship and for over 2 decades Edwina served as the coordinator for the Ladies Prayer & Share Ministry as well as the Prison and Jail Ministries at Highpoint Community Church (previously Calvary Assembly). She preached and taught the Bible to women and men weekly and helped many enter rehabilitation programs after they served their time. She was also a member of the Hospital and Nursing Home Visitation Ministries and went on Missions trips overseas. Some thought her brash, but she, being fueled by the truth of God’s Word, and a desire that all come to the knowledge of what the Son of God did through His death, remained bold and steadfast to deliver the message of the Gospel. She was also active in her local community and became a tutor to children in after-school programs and was a “mom” in her neighborhood who helped many families in need.

Edwina was very musical, loved dancing, sang and harmonized beautifully. She taught her children and grandchildren that almost any household item can become an instrument used to praise the Lord including boxes, shoes, hair combs with plastic over them, pots, pans and even hitting empty Coke bottles with a pencil. She kept time while walking with her walker and sang praises to the Lord until the last weeks of her life. Her words were “Seek first the Kingdom of God and His righteousness, then all things will be added.” When she answered the phone, her consistent greeting was “Grace, Mercy and Peace be with you.”

Edwina was the last surviving child born to her parents. Her husband William and eldest daughter, Aslee, preceded her in death. She is survived by her Sons: David (Paulette), Alfee (Kim), Paul (Emma), & Ken (Debbie), Daughter: Kerry. Grandsons: Larry, Ripton, Omar, Jordan, Joel, Paul (PD), Israel, Aaron, and Noah. Granddaughters: Danna, Sheree, Angel (Donnell), Talitha (David), Shannon (RayQuan) and Leyanna. A host of great grandchildren, great-great grandchildren, nieces, nephews, adopted children and wonderful friends too numerous to mention.

The Vickers family would like to thank Marion, Francita, Anjuilette, Denisse, Orchid and Bernadette for the care and dignity you all showered on Gigi, making her laugh out loud, calling her “mom,” and being patient when she’d play tricks on you (i.e.- locking you out the house while watching you squirm until she opened the door, or “escaping” to go for a walk when you were busy with Pop) LOL. And many thanks to Dr. Eric Young who walked the journey with us.

Richard "Dick" Shaw Hall Jr. - December 9, 1944 – April 1, 2018

Rich

Richard "Dick" Shaw Hall Jr. - December 9, 1944 – April 1, 2018 - Richard Shaw Hall, Jr. December 9, 1944 – Was an American publisher with a marketing and sales background. Mr. Hall was born on Staten Island, in New York City. He attended Port Richmond High School where he experienced his first exposure to the world of publishing when he, for 4 years, worked on the school's yearbook.

He attended City College of New York (Staten Island) from 1963 and 1964. He then embarked on an adventure to Kentucky, Morehead State University where he finished his undergraduate degree with majors in History, Sociology and Psychology, with minors in Business and Biology.

He returned to New York and began a teaching career in the field of Special Education specifically “Learning Behavioral Disabilities” at the secondary level (7th grade – 12th grade) at the 600 school on Staten Island housed on the Mt Loretto campus.

He attended Columbia University Graduate School with an emphasis in “Behavioral Psychology”.

After several lengthy teachers strikes he was offered an opportunity to move to Columbus, Ohio working for B.F. Skinner, designing and implementing behavioral modification programs imbedded in curriculum. He also did field research in that field and staff development. From 1969 – 1972 he was on loan to the University of Pittsburg (Leaning Resource Development Center) working with a field research program called I.P.I (Individualized Prescribed Instruction). In 1970, when the publishing rights for I.P.I. was acquired by New Century Education Corporation, Mr. Hall returned to the world of publishing. He remained with New Century until 1975.

During this time Mr. Hall was involved with Open Court publishing, editing the synthetic phonics “Foundation” program.

From 1976 to 1979 Mr. Hall became aware of school of educational thought spearheaded by Dr. Arthur Whimby, author of” Intelligence Can Be Taught” and began a relationship with a company called I.S.I (Innovative Sciences, Inc.) who brought behavioral management techniques together with the cognitive learning strategies of Whimby.

In 1979 he joined the Ohio based C.O.I.N. (Coordinated Occupational Information Network) an information database serving the guidance counselors across the country.

In 1986 after the sale of C.O.I.N. to Bell & Howell, Mr. Hall joined the Marketing and Sales department of Cambridge Book Company.

He achieved his highest success with Out2News, an online publishing newspaper effort created for the local Treasure Coast Community with a News/citizen journal emphasis. He called it the “Happy” news!

Perhaps the most important roll Mr. Hall prized was that of loving husband and devoted father. He adored his family and put them first in all that he did.

He is survived by his wife Robin Hall of 37 years, son Richard Shaw Hall III and daughter in law Sasha Hall, son Andrew Shaw Hall and daughter in law Erica Hall.
