Joseph was born to Arthur Edwin and Sarane Ives Hall in New York City, New York. He grew up in Houston, Texas where his appreciation for sound was fostered by his family’s musical heritage. After high school, he enlisted in the United States Navy where he also joined the Navy Band. Later, his passion for music was manifested as a sound engineer in the 70’s California music scene where he recorded everyone from Stevie Nicks to Rusty Weir- eventually leading him to a career with Paramount Studios. During this time he also volunteered with the U.S Forest Department with a particular fondness for looking toward the stars and working on the Mount Wilson Observatory in Los Angeles, CA.
He retired back to Texas in order to be closer to his family, and is survived by his daughter Aletha “Dani” Davis, his son Kenneth Hall, wife Samira and grandson Ian Saxon Hall; his brothers George Hall and wife Jacqueline Hosch Hall, and James Bigelow Hall; and his nieces who cared for him during the last years of his life Kirby, Niki, and Tracy.
Preceding him in death are his wife Sharon Hall; his parents; and sister Ann Lucinda Young.
Memorial donations are kindly requested to be given to Mount Wilson Institute Second Century Campaign, Post Office Box 1909, Atlanta, GA 30301-1909.
