Shane Mitchell Hail, age 51, passed away on Monday, July 20, 2020. He was born on October 1, 1968, in Cleveland, Ohio. He was a longtime resident of Loganville, Georgia.
Preceded in death by his father Arthur Hall. He is survived by his wife Julianne and two loving daughters Mackenzie and Natalie. His mother, Dee Hall. His brother and sister in-law Doug and Charlene Hall. His mother and father in-law, Barry and Sherry Hawley. Sister in law Meghan Horvath (John). Five nephews, Ryan Hall (Allison), Douglas Hall Jr. , A.J. Cozzens, Oliver Cozzens, and Remington Cozzens. Two nieces, Brittany Hall and Josie Cozzens, and loving cousins, Kimberly (Andre), Larry, Lisa, Allen, David, Mikey, Jimmy, Ricky, Rhonda, Tammy, and Donna.
Shane attended Lincoln West High School in Cleveland, Ohio. Early career roles provided Shane a technical skill set in electronics, and in particular automation systems. His expertise in automation systems, combined with a natural ability to communicate complex topics in easy to understand formats was a springboard for a successful career in technical marketing. Shane spent 10 years working as product manager at Siemens, the global leader in automation, before starting his own technical marketing firm in 2011, Myndshare Marketing where he consulted with numerous leaders in innovation.
Shane was a loyal servant to Jehovah and loved member of the Lilburn Congregation of Jehovah's Witnesses. He enjoyed spending time with his family, playing and watching hockey (Go Pens), he loved playing the guitar and could remember the lyrics to any song. He was the best girl dad any daughter could ask for. He had a very kind, selfless heart and quick wit and he will be dearly missed by all who knew and loved him. Due to COVID-19 a memorial service will not be held. The family will be having a Celebration of Life once it is safe to gather in large groups, as Shane would have wanted.

Shane and I were going to play two songs at a congregation talent show. We discussed which songs to do and I wanted to do All Along The Watchtower and one more song. We rehearsed the song a couple of times and he felt that it just wasn't right. We discussed what other song we could do and decided upon The Beatles, Oh! Darling. I was sure I wanted to do All Along The Watchtower as well, but he convinced me it was not the right choice. He suggested Pink Floyd's Wish You Were Here. It was a great choice and a no-brainer. We were magnificent at the talent show (of course). He also came up with our moniker and designed a logo for it. We were called "Vermicious Knids", a reference to monsters in the 1972 book Charlie and the Great Glass Elevator by Roald Dahl; the sequel to Charlie And The Chocolate Factory. A very obscure reference, but one that I was fully aware of as those had been my favorite books as a child. Shane and I talked a lot about music, swapped cd's, went and saw numerous concerts together, and always had a great time. He even took me to some hockey games, although I had no idea what was going on and wished I had brought a jacket EVERY TIME. Shane's smile was as big as the moon, and his love for his family was bigger.
Wish You Were Here
