Melvin was born on February 26, 1964 to Otis Hall and June Woods Hall in Florence, AL and passed away on August 17, 2020 in Natchitoches, LA. He was preceded in death by his father, Otis Hall; step-father, C. G. Olive; grandparents, James and Linnie Woods; father and mother-in-law, Joseph and Joyce Florentine; and four grandchildren, Joseph, Lane, Breanna, and Remi. He was a loving Husband, Daddy, Brother, Son, and Pawpaw. He loved his family, and his grandchildren were his world. He was always a great provider and still provided for his family. He was a hard working man all his life and always had a smile and offered his friendship, advice, or just a shoulder to cry on. He worked in construction almost all his life. He loved everyone he met and worked with and they loved him so much. He will surely be missed by all who knew him, but we know he is with our amazing Lord where he always wanted to be, in His Glory, for it’s never Goodbye Dear Daddy, But Bicycle, as he would always say. He is survived by his wife, Paula Hall; his children, Chris and Jordana Barnard and their children, Hailey and Leanne; Jessica and Brandon Salter and their children, Dominic, Landon, Mia, Reagan, and Jackson; Shanna and Lee McKenney, Jr. and their children, Dawn, Shawn, Jennifer, Cameron, and Victoria; Melanie and Josh Luman and their children, Rhiley and McKenzie; and Amber and Caleb Sherman and their children, Billy, Jax, and Evelyn. He is also survived by his mother June and Colin Ezekiel; and his siblings, Wade and Kim Hall; Angelia and Chuck Mosley; Brian and Teresa Hall; and Deanna Hall; as well as numerous nieces, nephews, and friends. Those honored to serve as pallbearers will be Chris Barnard, Dominic Fowler, Josh Luman, Brandon Salter, Lee McKenney, Jr., and Henry Shuler. John 3: 16 - 18
