James Hinson Hall, Jr.
James Hinson Hall, Jr., 66, (Jim the Cable Guy) beloved husband, father, brother, grandfather, and friend, passed peacefully on May 12, 2019. He was born September 16, 1952, in Monroe, Louisiana, to James Hinson Hall, Sr. and Anne Lewis Hall and was the oldest of four children. He spent his childhood years in Louisiana and Mississippi but graduated from Sarasota High School in Sarasota, Florida. Jim wed his wife Peggy on November 27, 1982, and together they enjoyed over 37 years of marriage. Jobs in the cable television industry took him all over; he spent most of his career years living in Alpharetta, Georgia, working for Showtime Networks, Inc. With the expansion and growth of Plantation Cablevision, a family business, Jim and his family moved out to Lake Oconee in the late 1990s. Jim was inducted into the Cable Pioneers in 1998 for his innovation and dedication to the industry.
Jim was a member of Greensboro First United Methodist Church where he was not only generous in donations to missions but was instrumental in developing the video and sound systems at his church. Jim was always full of joy and the life of the party. He loved to sing and was known for his beautiful voice. He enjoyed playing American Six Wicket Croquet and was the Georgia State Champion for many years. It wasn’t your average backyard croquet, it was a very difficult game. He always had time for his friends, offering a shoulder to cry on or a joke to laugh at. We will remember those happy times and his belly laugh will live on in our memories.
Jim is survived by his wife Peggy, daughter Ashley Thompson (Billy) and son Hinson Hall, grandson Anson Thompson, father James Hinson Hall, Sr., siblings John Hall (Paulette), Joel Hall, and Jan Dugan (Mark), and nieces and nephews Audrey Dugan, Josh Dugan (Abbie), Sean Dugan, and Hank Hall.
Jim will be interred at Walker United Methodist Church Cemetery following a service at Greensboro First United Methodist Church on May 14, 2019, at 2:00 PM. with Rev. Mike Morgan, Rev.
