Robert John Hall

June 24, 1935 - July 27, 2013


On the morning of Saturday, July 27, 2013, Robert John Hall passed from this life at his home, with his wife by his side at the age of 78 years.  He was the eldest of 8 children born to Joseph and Catherine Hall.  John was born on June 24, 1935 in Kimberley, BC.

Left to cherish his memory are his beloved wife, Elizabeth “Liz” and his children Pam (Rob) Hunter and Mike (Noreen) Hall.  He also leaves behind his grandchildren Ryley (Lucy) Hunter, Derek Hunter, Christine Hall, Brent Hall, Cameron Veilleux, and his great grandson Everett Hunter.  He leaves his sister Heather (Gregg Huculak) and his brothers, Ken (Glenna) Hall, Larry (Donna) Hall, David (Cathy) Hall and Bruce Hall,  and his nieces and nephews.  He also leaves his dear friends Sam and Fran Lawrenow.

John was predeceased by his parents and his sisters Carol Myers and Betty Bradley.

John had a passion for the outdoors, and loved fishing, hunting and camping with his family.  He also was a great sports fan. He spent many hours at the ball parks and ice arenas with his daughter, son and grandsons.  John also volunteered his time with the Cranbrook Colts, the Cranbrook Figure Skating, Minor Ball, and endless hours coaching, refereeing and officiating.  John was a dedicated father and loving grandfather and he will be missed by all who knew him.

Special thanks to the Staff at Joseph Creek Village and Dr. Bob Niedermayer.

A Celebration of John's Life will be held at Mark Memorial Funeral Home on Friday, August 2, 2013 at 11 am.  Interment will follow in Fort Steele Cemetery.  If friends desire, memorial contributions may be made to a BC  Children’s Hospital Foundation, 4480 Oak Street, B321, Vancouver, BC  V6H 2K2.    

Those we love don’t go away.

They walk beside us every day.

Unseen, unheard, but always near    

Still loved, still missed and very dear.

My heartfelt sympathy to Aunt Liz,Pam & Mike and grandchildren.Uncle John always had the glint in his eye as he would speak..many times I didn’t know whether he was joking or serious (often joking).We loved his stories about back in the day as he had the expressions and a way to spruce them up.
He will be sadly missed by many and may he rest in peace.
