F. Scott Hall
July 30, 1944 – May 12, 2020
HALL, F. Scott 75, of Tampa, FL passed away on May 12, 2020. Scott was born in Waterbury, CT on July 30, 1944 to Jessie MacLean and Frederick Milton Hall.
Scott attended Staples High School in Westport, CT and later earned his B.S. in Business from the University of Charleston (WV), where a scholarship fund will be established in his name. An entrepreneurial spirit, Scott captained Valley Wholesale, Inc. in W. Springfield, MA as president and owner prior to launching his roofing supply distribution company, Phoenix Sales, Inc in Florida, which he navigated to 18 consecutive years of profitability and expanded to four locations. A gifted mentor and conversationalist, Scott anchored many lasting friendships and took great interest in helping others. Scott was loving, generous, kind, and a master in the galley – a gourmet cook always eager to prepare a new creation from his endless recipe collection, especially at the holidays, or share one at a restaurant from his carefully curated list. He was an avid sailor and fisherman, motorcycle enthusiast, and accomplished golfer and soccer coach. Scott is deeply cherished and survived by his children: Wendy [Matt], Alexandra [Richard], and MacLean [Amy], brother: Jeff [Pam], nephews: Andrew [Jay], Justin [Elizabeth], and Steven [Danielle], granddaughters: Madison and Abigail, and dog: Willie. A bagpipe memorial service will be held at Achorn Cemetery in Rockland, ME. Donations in Scott’s memory may be made to Moffitt Cancer Center (please note: in support of Dr. Christine Chung’s research) or the Black Dagger Military Hunt Club.
