Alan Jay Hall
1950 ~ 2015

Alan Jay Hall returned peacefully to his Father in Heaven November 14, 2015 at the home of his daughter in Colorado Springs with his wife Anita by his side. He fought a 27-year battle with a brain tumor and during his last course of treatment succumbed to acute heart failure.

He was born in Ogden Utah. Shortly after his birth the family moved to Ontario, Oregon where he lived until he graduated high school and then attended Brigham Young University in Provo, Utah. He served two years as a missionary for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints in the East Central States/Kentucky Tennessee Mission from 1969 to 1971.

He met Anita Vaughn in Kentucky and they were married for time and all eternity in the Ogden Temple on March 25, 1972.

To their union four children were born whom they raised in New Albany, Indiana and Frankfort, Kentucky. He was a journeyman tool and die maker specializing in plastic injection molding.

He was a simple man, kind, gentle, and loving husband and father. He served in several bishoprics as a counselor over the years but his real love and concern was for the young men programs. He worked with the missionaries as ward mission leader, served as Explorer Scout leader and Cub Master, and Young Men president dedicating many years in church service. He was a wonderful example of humble and selfless service to others his entire life.

He was a boat builder. He built many custom kayaks and sailboats with the assistance of his son and all of his scouts over the years and had many adventures on the lakes and rivers of beautiful Kentucky. His main passion was fishing. He always said that being outside in the fresh air standing by the water with the sun shining was the best way to soothe one's soul. Pure joy.

He is preceded in death by his parents Keith Birch Hall and Edith June Quigley and an older brother David whom he will meet for the first time in heaven.

He is survived by his loving wife Anita and four children Renee (Eric) Mercer of Colorado Springs, Colorado; Angela (Todd) Morrill of Heber City, Utah; Kevin (Katy) Hall of North Ogden, Utah and Cara Jean (Marc) Means of Katy, Texas. Grandchildren Tyler, Daniel, EJ and Russell Mercer, Vivian, Lucas and Cameron Morrill, Wesley, Spencer, Alaina and Christine Hall, and Eva, Noah, Charlotte and June Means. Three brothers Kenneth Hall of Lincoln, California, Steve Hall of Winnemucca, Nevada, Robert Hall of Layton, Utah, two sisters Ilene Painter of Layton, Utah and Sandy Wilkes of Hono Kaa, Hawaii.

"Wherefore, fear not even unto death; for in this world your joy is not full, but in me your joy is full.” Doctrine & Covenants 101:36

We love you and miss you! We will see you in eternity. Families are Forever.
