Bob's conversion

Contributor: Chynna67 Created: 11 months ago Updated: 11 months ago

Robert (Bob) began attending M-Men and gleaners as a young man with his friends. It is there he met Joy and decided to join the church. His parents were not supportive but his convictions we're strong. He was active and served in many callings throughout his life including service in a bishopric. He spent many years enjoying serving at the front desk of the Saint George temple. Both his children Linda and Dennis are active Latter Day Saints and raised their kids in the LDS faith.

Visiting Grandma and Grandpa

Contributor: Chynna67 Created: 11 months ago Updated: 11 months ago

It was exciting to visit Grandma and Grandpa. They prepared for our visits with foods we loved (individual cereal boxes, Grandpa's homemade cookies in the green tupperware, creamed peas, tuna salad, tomato gravy, orange juice and milk) and gave us thoughtful gifts. I received my beloved Cabbage Patch doll from them one Christmas in California. Most of my memories were after they retired and moved to Bloomington Saint George. They moved there to be between their two kids- Dennis in Provo and Linda in Laguna Niguel CA. Their home was clean and welcoming. We were greeted first by a family of ceramic ducks (I think one quacked when you walked past?) on the front porch then with hugs and kisses from them. We knew not to walk on Grandpa's pristine grass. We liked jumping between the big rocks in the front without touching the little rocks. We were excited when the hot tub was working. The girls loved the "pink room." It was the only guest room not in the basement and had a pink bedspread. Grandma put dolls on her beds with the pillows. We loved shopping at the outlet stores then doing fashion shows for them. They were delighted to just sit, watch and talk. You didn't feel you were ever boring them. The coo coo clock and mantel clock would chime reminding you of time passing. Time felt a little slower there. We liked watching game shows with them especially The Price is Right. Grandpa had a cool electric shoe shiner in the upstairs bathroom that was fun to feel and play with. He had a garage workshop where he could add extra holes to belts. He usually changed into a jumpsuit when he was home. When we left they would wave goodbye from the driveway until we were out of sight. You always felt they were eager for you to come and sad for you to leave.

Life timeline of Robert Billings Hall

1920
Robert Billings Hall was born on 2 Mar 1920
Robert Billings Hall was 20 years old when World War II: Nazi Germany and Slovakia invade Poland, beginning the European phase of World War II. World War II, also known as the Second World War, was a global war that lasted from 1939 to 1945, although conflicts reflecting the ideological clash between what would become the Allied and Axis blocs began earlier. The vast majority of the world's countries—including all of the great powers—eventually formed two opposing military alliances: the Allies and the Axis. It was the most global war in history; it directly involved more than 100 million people from over 30 countries. In a state of total war, the major participants threw their entire economic, industrial, and scientific capabilities behind the war effort, blurring the distinction between civilian and military resources. World War II was the deadliest conflict in human history, marked by 50 to 85 million fatalities, most of whom were civilians in the Soviet Union and China. It included massacres, the genocide of the Holocaust, strategic bombing, premeditated death from starvation and disease and the only use of nuclear weapons in war.

Robert Billings Hall was 20 years old when The Holocaust: The first prisoners arrive at a new concentration camp at Auschwitz. The Holocaust, also referred to as the Shoah, was a genocide during World War II in which Nazi Germany, aided by its collaborators, systematically murdered some six million European Jews, around two-thirds of the Jewish population of Europe, between 1941 and 1945. Jews were targeted for extermination as part of a larger event involving the persecution and murder of other groups, including in particular the Roma and "incurably sick", as well as ethnic Poles and other Slavs, Soviet citizens, Soviet prisoners of war, political opponents, gay men and Jehovah's Witnesses, resulting in up to 17 million deaths overall.

Robert Billings Hall was 38 years old when Space Race: Launch of Sputnik 1, the first artificial satellite to orbit the Earth. The Space Race refers to the 20th-century competition between two Cold War rivals, the Soviet Union (USSR) and the United States (US), for dominance in spaceflight capability. It had its origins in the missile-based nuclear arms race between the two nations that occurred following World War II, aided by captured German missile technology and personnel from the Aggregat program. The technological superiority required for such dominance was seen as necessary for national security, and symbolic of ideological superiority. The Space Race spawned pioneering efforts to launch artificial satellites, uncrewed space probes of the Moon, Venus, and Mars, and human spaceflight in low Earth orbit and to the Moon.

The Space Shuttle was a partially reusable low Earth orbital spacecraft system operated by the U.S. National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), as part of the Space Shuttle program. Its official program name was Space Transportation System (STS), taken from a 1969 plan for a system of reusable spacecraft of which it was the only item funded for development. The first of four orbital test flights occurred in 1981, leading to operational flights beginning in 1982. In addition to the prototype whose completion was cancelled, five complete Shuttle systems were built and used on a total of 135 missions from 1981 to 2011, launched from the Kennedy Space Center (KSC) in Florida.
