Flavis Hall


Flavis L. Hall, 79, a lifelong resident of Cleveland, passed away on Sunday, March 4, 2018.

He was born on May 22, 1938, to the late Rev. L.E. Hall and Leila Moseley Hall. L.E. and Leila owned a store off of 64 Highway for many years, and you could always see him and his 12 siblings working in the store.

Many knew him from his time as a barber, when he and his brother, John, owned and operated Hall Barber Shop. After his time as a barber, Flavis went on to work as a truck driver for American Uniform for many years. All who knew him knew how much he loved cars and drag racing, even having great success as a drag racer during his prime. He had an exuberant spirit and will be dearly missed by all that knew him. 

Along with his parents, he was preceded in death by his wife, Linda Parris Hall; and siblings: Ronald Hall, Mavis Orr (Tom), and Hilda Hall. 

He leaves behind to cherish his memory, his loving children: Garry D. Hall (the late Andrell Hall), Gary Caywood (Cathy), Pam Gaither (Bob), Renee Leamon (Darion), Bridgette Slack (Darrell), and Kym Hall (Sam Bowerman); grandchildren: Brittanee Cook (Dave), Shasta Bain (Jimmy), Dustin Hall (Sasha), Dusty Rymer (Heather), Matt Stephenson, David Ware, Antonio Carr Jr., Kamariay Carr, Somari Carr, Alesha Alford (Ken), Austin Almazan, Alex Almazan, Adam Caywood, and Lisa Dalton; 12 great-grandchildren; sisters, Doris Caywood (Garland), Wilma Johnson, Joyce Steele, Shirley Shoemaker, and Melba Wyatt; brothers, Bobby Hall (Nell), Garnett Hall (Brenda), John Hall, Doyle Hall (Sherry), and Larry Hall (Dana); 22 nieces and nephews, as well as numerous extended family and friends.
