Thirty-second degree Mason, Elder in his church, musician, sportsman, philanthropist, bank president. Husband of Vivian Nall, son of George C.and Alice A. Nall.
As a philanthropist, he donated the air conditioning system to the old building which housed The Home For Masonic Widows; in memory of his mother he donated the women's floor to St. Luke's Hospital, in St. Louis, Missouri; he donated the money to Central Presbyterian Church to rebuild Central School For the Young Years, in the memory of the Rev Dr Layton Mauze and his father, George C. Nall and his mother, Alice A. Nall; he donated the Cassavant pipe organ to Cental Presbyterian Church, for the Glory of God, in the memory of his sister, Dorothea A. Nall Barnes. He donated these during his lifetime. He bequeathed millions of dollars to Central Presbyterian Church and Washington University in St. Louis.
He was the president of two local banks one which was acquired by Boatmen's Bank which has evolved into Bank of America. He loved golf and played regularly. Bridge was another of his favorite pass times. After retirement he played almost daily, until his sight began failing.
When he was in his twenties, his father succumbed to pneumonia. He promised he would care for his mother for her lifetime and he remained faithful to his promise. Summers they would travel to escape hay fever season. For the sake of looking out for his mother's interests, he was given a share of Anheuser Busch stock, which was largely family owned at that time, so that he could attend meetings. The meetings were held in the office of the CEO at that time. They now are held at the varying theme parks owned by the company or in the Convention Center in St. Louis. As a boy he spent summers at the Nall farm in Bardstown, KY, where he worked on the farm, got to know aunts and uncles and cousins, and gained a love for his family history. One year after the death of his mother he married his long time and in my opinion very patient fiancee. He was sixty years old at the time of his marriage. There were no children. He and his wife loved to entertain nieces and nephews at dinners. As his niece, I feel fortunate that in his later years I was able to spend time with him. I remember so many wonderful times. He had a keen sense of humor. His fondness for white asparagus led us to Belleville, IL. I had surprised him the first time we went on the hour long drive to lunch and of course the hour drive home. We went every week during the season.
Upon my telling him that my sisters and I all wanted to be buried with our family and there was a lot adjoining our existing family lot that we wanted to purchase his reaction was "count me in for a share." That afternoon we were at the cemetery purchasing the adjoining lot.
