Reynolds High School in 1966 and from Carson-Newman College in Jefferson City, TN in 1970. Following graduation he moved to Northern Virginia and began working at the U.S. General Accountability Office in Washington, DC retiring in 2007. He served in the U.S. Army in Vietnam from 1970-1972. He was preceded in death by his father, Marvin Lee "Tink" Hall. Brent is survived by his wife, Nora Ann Hall of Ashland; daughter, Brittany Haun (David) of Lexington Park, MD; granddaughter, Charlotte Haun; mother, Barbara "Bobbie" Hall of Winston-Salem, NC; sisters, Pamela Pogue (Tom) of Winston-Salem, NC, Melissa Aldridge (Gary) of New Bern, NC, Bridget Cella (Stephen) of New Bern, NC, and Barbara Gordon (Greg) of Wellesley, MA; brothers-in-law, Calvin Rains (Melinda) of Winston-Salem, NC, and Joe Rains (Debbie) of Lynchburg, VA; and many nieces and nephews.
