ECIA Mourns Passing of Industry Titan, Raymond J. Hall

The Electronics Representatives Association (ERA) has announced that its retired executive vice president and CEO, Raymond J. Hall, passed away on Nov. 13 in Findlay, Ohio. Ray was a good friend and supporter of NEDA, the predecessor to ECIA. He was instrumental in facilitating many joint programs between ERA and NEDA.  The association presented Ray with the Gail S. Carter award in 2004 – its highest honor.

ECIA expresses its deepest sympathies to Mr. Hall’s family. He is survived by his wife of 32 years, Patricia, his daughters, Kathy Green and Tracey Stewart, his son, Christopher Kosch, his brother, Robert, and eight grandchildren. He was preceded in death by his son, Raymond J. Hall, Jr.

In keeping with Mr. Hall's love of springtime, and especially St. Patrick's Day, a memorial service will be held in the spring of 2019. Memorial donations can be directed to the City Mission of Findlay, 510 W. Main Cross St., Findlay, OH 45840
