RICHMOND, Va. (AP) - Former Virginia House of Delegates Minority Leader Franklin P. Hall has died.

House Speaker William J. Howell issued a statement Tuesday praising Hall as easy going and friendly.

Hall, a family law attorney and banker, served as House minority leader from 2001 to 2007. The Democrat retired in 2009 to take a spot on the Alcoholic Beverage Control Commission.

Hall got his start in government running errands for then-U.S. Senate Majority Leader Hubert Humphrey, and continued to work for Humphrey after the Minnesota Democrat became vice president.

He settled in Richmond in 1969 and was elected to the House six years later.
