Michael A. Hall, 67, Baker, California, made his last inappropriate joke Saturday, July 15, 2017, in Barstow, California. He loved his family, fishing and hunting, gambling in casinos and told the best stories ever. He had a charm that is hard to explain, but anyone who ever met him knows what I'm talking about.
Born Sep. 30, 1949, in Logansport, he was the son of Robert E. Hall and Margaret M. Patesel, who both preceded him in death.
Mike was a member of the Marine Corps from 1969 to 1973 before moving to California, where he owned his own lumber business with his brothers called Hall Brothers, worked construction and eventually retired from the National Park Service as the Chief of Maintenance for the Mohave National Preserve. Surviving are three brothers, Kenny (Karen) Hall, Baker, California, Bob (Leslie) Hall, Winsor, California; Charlie (Penny) Hall, Kokomo; two sisters, Helen (Mike) McDonald, Kokomo, and Debbie (Roger) Wolfe, Greentown; one daughter, Lisamarie Downing; one son, Mike (Theresa) Hall; and two granddaughters; and four grandsons.
One brother, Mart Hall, preceded him in death.
A celebration of life will be held in Baker, California, in October with family and friends.
