A Captain of the Central Coventry Fire District passed away after a battle with cancer.

Captain William Hall suffered from occupational cancer that he contracted during his 22-years on the department.

He started with the Department in the Washington Fire District in 1992 and was promoted to Lieutenant in 1999.

Hall was known for donning a red suit and beard and playing Santa on a Fire truck visiting local communities during the holidays. He was also a founding member of the Coventry Arson task Force and a founding member of the Central Coventry Emergency Response Team. He also coached a local softball team.

Hall also served as a town councilman and was the chairman of the Coventry Sewer Committee.

Hall was posthumously promoted to rank of Battalion Chief and will have a funeral mass with full traditional line of duty honors.

Calling hours will be held April 24 from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. at Iannottie Funeral Home in Coventry.
