Irving M. Hall

In loving memory of Irving Hall, 88 years, who passed away Friday morning, August 23, 2013 at the Maison Vale Hospice after a 17 year battle with cancer. Beloved husband and life partner of 65 years to Lucille (Belanger). Predeceased by parents Phoebe and Cyrus Hall of Little Current, and 17 brothers and sisters. Loving father of Linda Savage (Ross) of Copper Cliff, Ken (Marlene) and Barbara Sys (Wayne), both of Winnipeg. Cherished grandfather of Andrea (Randy), Craig (Connie), Elton (Alanna), Melissa (Vince), Brett (Sarah), Kendra (Chad) and Kelsey (Riley). Great-grandfather to Lauren, Cain, Maddie, Alivia, and Eric. Also survived by many nieces and nephews. Born and raised on Manitoulin Island, Dad was a “haw-eater” at heart. He left the Island as a young man of 17 to serve in the Second World War, 85th Bridge Co., RCASC. He served in France, Belgium, Holland and Germany. After the war he was a courier at the Nuremberg Trials. He was a past member of the Azilda Lions Club, St. Andrew’s 111 Seniors, and a very proud member of the War Veterans of Canada. He will be dearly missed by all who knew him and will be remembered as a kind and thoughtful man. He retained his sense of humour to the very end. As per Irving’s request, there will be no service or visitation. Cremation with interment at a later date. The family would like to thank Dr. Cano and Dr. Labonte. Very special thanks to the doctors, nurses, PSWs, and staff at the Maison Vale Hospice for their outstanding care and compassion for our Dad. Donations made to the Maison Vale Hospice would be greatly appreciated. Arrangements entrusted to the Jackson and Barnard Funeral Home.
