It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of Edward Brooks Hall, Jr., 49, of Wilmington, NC, on Thursday, February 23, 2023. Ted was a remarkable person, full of love and kindness who had an unending generosity, patience, humor, and most of all love.

In 2012-2013 he took a hiatus from the business world and worked as the movement teacher at Pine Hill Waldorf School in Wilton, NH, where his children attended. After moving to Chapel Hill, NC, he became the athletic director at Emerson Waldorf School. In 2021, he returned to the business world and became a strategic account executive at Alight Solutions.
Ted had a life-long passion for athletics and was an avid skier and water skier, completed countless triathlons and iron-man competitions, but mostly loved teaching the next generation how to develop a love of nature and sports.
Ted found joy in the simplest pleasures in life and enjoyed spending time playing in the surf at the beach and watching his children chasing seagulls. He also loved spending summers at his family camp on Lake Winnipesaukee, where hours were spent swimming, sailing, hiking, enjoying time with family, and watching beautiful sunsets.
