Prince Hall was born on January 8th, 2007 in Manila, Philippines and passed away on August 1st, 2023 in Bella Vista, Arkansas. Prince’s unexpected death was a result of undiagnosed cardiovascular medical issues. While Prince’s life was cut far too short, he left a lasting impression on all who met him.
To know Prince, was to love Prince; whether it be for his kind-heartedness, his ability to make those around him laugh, or just the calming presence of his company. He was highly intelligent and an excellent student, consistently bringing home report cards showing all A’s. A talented musician, Prince especially enjoyed his time playing with his classmates in the Gravette Lions’ Band, though maybe not those early August rehearsals. At home Prince was usually quiet and reserved, spending most of his time on his computer playing games and creating music. If not in his room, Prince was most often seen in and around the kitchen, most likely asking for or making his own Ramen or in the driveway ensuring he had parked his beloved Jeep Grand Cherokee exactly right. On occasion though, Prince would just look to play with his two younger brothers, they’d take silly pictures and play games, and their combined laughter was the greatest sound in the world.
Around his friends, Prince was the comedian, a confidant, and always caring. With news of his passing, his parents learned how beloved Prince was among his classmates and friends and it has been of incredible comfort to the family. Often avoiding the camera with his family, Prince’s friends have filled the internet with pictures of him showing him to be one of the most photogenic people to ever step in front of a camera. The family is extremely thankful for the view they have provided on that part of Prince’s life.
Prince is survived by his parents; Andrew and Elaine Hall, maternal grand-parents; Eligio and Teresita Crehencia of Manila, Philippines, paternal grand-parents; Janie and Gordon Hall of Bella Vista, Arkansas, two brothers; Alexander (Ajax) and Anderson Hall, both of Bella Vista, Arkansas, three aunts, three uncles, seven cousins, and innumerable friends.
A visitation will be held at the Gravette Volleyball Gymnasium on Thursday, August 10th from 12:00 p.m. to 2:00 p.m. followed by a private family ceremony at Mt. Pleasant Cemetery, Father Barnabas presiding.
