Obituary for Dr. William Petrie Hall

Dr. William Petrie Hall, 98 of Princeton, passed away peacefully at his home Sunday, March 3, 2019. In 1951 he began practice as the first cardiologist in western Kentucky. He was the first physician to admit a patient to the new Baptist Hospital and the first to establish a dedicated coronary care unit. In 1977, after twenty-six years of practice, he began an active retirement as a gardener, history buff, photographer, genealogist, avid reader, painter, chef, self proclaimed astronomer, bird watcher and decoy carver. Throughout all he was a devoted husband.

Dr. Hall is survived by his wife of 74 years, Jane Jones Hall of Princeton; son, Dr. David Petrie Hall and wife, Dr. Jenny Franke of Princeton; his daughter-in-law, Elaine Hall of Chicago; seven grandchildren, Jeremy Hall and wife Kristy, Jaclyn Slaughter, Alexandra Hall, Logan Hall, Christopher Hall, Elizabeth Hall and Sean Hall; two great grandchildren, Jackson Hall and Harrison Hall.

He was preceded in death by his parents, James Darnall and Fay Petrie Hall; son, William Petrie Hall, II and two sisters, Marjorie Cowherd and Suzanne Foster.
