Dr. John M. Hall

Dr. John Mark Hall, 82, of Clarkton went to his eternal home on February 25, 2024 at Novant Health New Hanover County Health Center.


Dr. Hall was the long-time dentist in the Town of Clarkton. He went to great lengths to administer great care with minimal pain for all his patients and they simply adored him. He deeply cherished his wife, his girls and his grandchildren. A kind, generous man with a passion for living life to the fullest. He had an eye for beautiful things such as classical cars, antiques, nature and architectural finds. Dr. Hall loved to be spontaneous and enjoyed traveling to new places to see new things and was never afraid to try something new. He loved music and enjoyed playing the piano and the organ. Dr. Hall will be remembered for his love of people and his ability to always see the best in folks.


He was preceded in death by his adopted parents, Robert and Ruby Hall, his biological parents, Charles and Ruby White Pridgen, and one sister Denzil Mae Pridgen Hernandez.

Left to cherish his memory are his loving wife of 50 years, Ann Bobo Hall of the home, daughters Abigail Ruth Hall Eason (Brandon) of Boone, Georgeanna Hall (Jin Hong Park) of South Korea, brother James Hall of Ivanhoe, VA, three sisters, Mary Ellen Bowen (Bronnie) of Elizabethtown, Eleanor Rea Pridgen (Herbert) of Whiteville, and JoAnn Pridgen (Lester) of Whiteville, and two grandchildren Tellulah Estelle Eason and Rhory Ewan Eason.
