Speed Hall, Sr., 67, of Abbeville, husband of Kathy Mabry Hall, died Thursday, May 14, 2020.  He was born in Abbeville to Edward C. Hall, Sr. and the late Mary Wiley Hall.

A 1971 graduate of Abbeville High School, Speed honorably served his country in the United States Army with the 25th Infantry Division – Tropic Lightening as a radio mechanic.  He was employed with West Carolina Telephone Company and retired after 37 years of dedicated service.  Speed enjoyed watching sports, especially cheering on the Clemson Tigers and Atlanta Braves.  An outdoorsman, he could often be found fishing, riding his motorcycle or tending to his yard, plants and honeybees.  Time spent with his precious family brought him much happiness.  His grandchildren, who affectionately called him ‘Big Papa,’ were the lights of his life.  Speed was of the Baptist faith.

In addition to his mother, he was preceded in death by a sister, Robbie Hall Lawton.
