Hall, Timothy John

July 15, 1958 — February 23, 2021

Timothy John Hall, 62, of Liberty, MO, passed away unexpectedly on February 23, 2021, while on a GM work assignment in Arlington, TX.

Tim was born July 15, 1958, in Dayton, Ohio, the second of four children of John and Mary MacFarlane Hall. Tim attended Centerville High School where he graduated in 1976. Tim played trombone in the band and also participated on the high school track team in pole vault, distance running and steeplechase. Tim earned the rank of Eagle Scout in Troop 516.

After high school, Tim attended Hocking Technical College in Nelsonville, Ohio, earning an Associate degree in Heat Treating. Tim landed a job at a facility in Concord, New Hampshire that heat treated medical joint replacement components. He worked there for a few years before returning to Dayton to work at GM Moraine Assembly. While working at GM, Tim continued his education and earned his Bachelor degree in Marketing from Wright State University in Dayton, Ohio.

Tim was a lifelong fan of the Cincinnati Reds and the Bengals.   He loved auto racing and regularly attended the Indianapolis 500, the Brickyard 400 and the Detroit Grand Prix.   He would also travel to road courses like Mid-Ohio and even attended the F1 Australian Grand Prix.   Working in the automotive industry was a deep connection for Tim from his professional work to his pleasure of following auto racing.

While working at GM in Moraine he met the love of his life, Julie Bennett of Farmersville, Ohio.   Tim was so happy and fulfilled with this relationship. They were united in marriage on August 28, 1993. They were blessed with two sons, Jonathan and Justin. Tim loved his boys with all his heart, and nothing made him happier or prouder than watching his boys grow up into fine young men. It was a proud day when daughter-in-law, Paisley joined our family in October 2020.

If you knew Tim, you were a friend of Tim’s. With new friends or old friends, Tim always had a smile on his face and a kind word.   Tim also had a keen sense of humor and would burst out laughing or provide a quick one-liner to the amusement of others. Over the years Tim relished the tradition of making the manhattans for his lifelong friends whenever they gathered to play golf, listen to music, laugh, and share stories of their growing families.

Tim's career with General Motors spanned 38 years. He was transferred from the Moraine (Ohio) Assembly plant to the Kansas City Fairfax plant in 2009 and the family moved to Liberty, MO the following year. Tim was a dependable and compassionate worker. Tim enjoyed contributing but did not seek nor enjoy being the center of attention. In 2020 near the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, Tim worked for several months in Kokomo, Indiana at the General Motors facility that was mass producing the needed ventilators for the victims of the pandemic. While he was there, he said it was the most positive working experience he had ever had, where everyone was working together for the good of the country.   While Tim retired last year, he returned to work as a contractor until his death. In Liberty, Tim and Julie attended Second Baptist Church.

Tim was preceded in death by his parents. He leaves his wife of 27 years, Julie; sons, Jonathan Hall (Paisley) and Justin Hall; siblings, Heather Hall, Todd Hall (Janet) and Ted Hall (Amy); as well as his beloved dogs, Piper and Otter, nieces, nephews, other relatives and many friends.

Tim was a great guy and the best boss I have ever had. I worked with Tim for many years at Moraine assembly! I lost touch with him when our plant closed, and I had been trying to reconnect. I am so sorry for your loss. I know he loves you and the boys more than anything! My thoughts and prayers are with you!

Tim will truly be missed, we started out as co workers and after being transferred 2x we ended up roommates almost 2 years. We learned so much about each other and became family. I miss our conversations on the phone. The laughs we shared. The games we attended. May God bless the family Julie, Johnathan and Justin. I'll see you on the the side my brother. Rest In Peace.

I had the pleasure of working with Tim at Fairfax. He was a guy that you knew you could always count on.

John Ciupak

Sorry for your loss . I remember Tim from band. And the green nova that he drove to school .

Bill Ireland

Julie, although I have never met you or Tim. I m a first cousin of Tim's mother, Mary. We met Todd when he and Janet along with their girls came to Estes Park in 2019 for the Scandinavian Midsummer Festival and had a mini Lindholm reunion. I am deeply sorry to hear of Tim's untimely death and wish my sympathy to you and your entire family. How comforting it is to know that he has gone to his eternal home with the Lord, I do pray that the Lord will comfort you and your family during this time of loss and grieving. May His blessings and love abound.

Ruth Ann Fullner

I had the good fortune of working with Tim at both Moraine and Fairfax. He was great to work with, he never got upset or lost his temper. He treated me and all of co-workers with respect. I am so sorry for your loss.

David Ording

Sorry for your loss, worked with him on second shift at Fairfax. Rev 21:4

I am so sorry for your loss, Tom and I worked closely together at GM in Moraine and swapped stories about our kids. Tim was a good man, and will be missed

Edward McHone

So sorry for your families loss my thoughts and prayers are with you all. Tim was my supervisor several different times during my years at GM, he was one of the best Forman’s I ever worked for always smiling even when you gave him bad news , he would just say OK we will deal with it! Great person and always smiling! God Bless


Tim and I started at Fairfax at nearly the same time in 2009. I worked with Tim on many occasions. All I can say is... what a great guy! He was always positive, friendly, and professional. Tim's attitude and work ethic is what makes General Motors great company and a great place to work. We all benefitted from what he brought work everyday. We will all miss his sense of humor, and his smiling face.

Neal Newton

I had the pleasure of working with Tim on our last launch of the Cadillac XT4. He was consistently pleasant and friendly. I am so sorry for your loss of this great guy.

Kevin Barnes

We are so sorry to hear of your loss. Uncle Todd, the Hall Family, and friends, you are all in our hearts and we are thinking about you. Love you

Eric & Nell

So sorry to hear of Tim’s passing. We were close friends in Troop 516, in high school, and at the recycling center, but lost track of each other afterwards. I had been trying to find him again for the last few years, but not knowing where he lived had no luck finding him. It was a sad and shocking moment when I saw a note of his passing on the CHS FB page. The photo is wonderful - it’s just how I remember him, with his big goofy grin and open face. My condolences to his family, with a special shout-out to Todd.

Steven Husting

I'm sorry for your loss, Tim was one of a kind, and one of the best supervisors I had at GM.

Donnie Emrick

Tim and I were great friends at Centerville High School, and for many years after. I remember he had a yellow pair of Addidas running shoes, that in his size, earned him the new nickname of "banana feet" (one of many). I lost track of him years ago, but you never forget your friends from those days past. I am sorry to hear the news, but he will always be remembered.

Rick Green

Tim was one of my supervisors on Motor Line back in a day...always liked him!
