I always enjoyed my conversations with Commissioner Hall.
Mayor Errick D. Simmons and the City of Greenville mourn the lost of former Central Transportation Commissioner Dick Hall, who has died at 84.
Hall was appointed Central District Transportation Commissioner by Governor Kirk Fordice on April 12, 1999, to fill an unexpired term. He served as Central Transportation Commissioner until his retirement in December of 2019.
Prior to being elected Commissioner, Hall served 24 years in the Mississippi Legislature, three terms as a Representative and three terms as a Senator. Hall served as Chairman of the Environmental Committees in both the House and Senate. While in the Senate, he also served as Chairman of the Senate Appropriations Committee.
He is survived by his wife of 22 years Jennifer, his children: Bob Hall (Dianne), Chris Hall (Kathy), Allison Hanson, Nathan Hanson (Lorie) and his grandchildren: Christian Hall (Lacy), Shelby Hall, Carter Hanson and Elizabeth Hanson. He and Jennifer resided at the Reservoir in Rankin County. Hall was an active member of Lakeside Presbyterian church and was a 2nd Lieutenant in the Army.
