Joshua Marlin Hall, 1990-2008

Joshua Marlin Hall, 18, passed away on Sept. 16 with his dad at his side.

Joshua was born on July 27, 1990. He spent the first 10 years of his childhood in Alaska, two years in the Vail Valley, and a year in California. Once his dad returned from Iraq, Joshua attended high school in Virginia and in Vail.

Joshua developed a passion for his dad’s loves early in life and eagerly went survival camping and shooting any chance he was given. Joshua always was curious to learn how things worked; this curiosity lead him to study automotive mechanics for one year in high school. He was your “go-to guy” when anything was wrong with your car.

As a teenager and young adult, Joshua loved to play the guitar and video games. He and his sister arrived to join their father in the valley early this spring to start their adult lives together.

Joshua was a compassionate, gentle soul whose kind heart touched many of us.

Joshua is survived by his parents Greg A. Hall, of Avon, and Tammy Renee Cupp, of Staunton, Va,; paternal grandparents Richard and Kay Hall, of Lynchburg, Va.; maternal grandparents LeBron and Helen Holbrook, of Fredericktown, Mo.; and a sister Alissa Joy Hall, of Staunton, Va. He also is survived by his stepfather S. Michael Cupp, stepsister Kristin Cupp, stepbrother Mike Cupp, uncles, aunts, cousins and many extended family members who love him very much.

To those close to him, “Budda” will be well missed and loved forever.

A celebration of Joshua’s life will be held Sunday, from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m., on the deck of Finnegan’s Wake in Avon.
