Earl Dean Hall
78, Longmont, Colo.
Earl D. Hall of Longmont, Colo., passed away March 18, surrounded by his family. He was 78.
Earl — born June 30, 1927, in Plummer, Idaho — was the eldest of five children born to Earl Dean Hall Sr. and Mary Whitsett Hall. The children were sent to an orphanage in 1938. Earl’s brother and two sisters were adopted from there and his brother, Allen, died there at the age of 9.
Enlisting in the U.S. Navy at age 17, Earl served four years in that branch of the military. In 1950, he enlisted in the U.S. Air Force. He earned the World War II Victory Medal, China Service Medal, Good Conduct Medal and National Defense Service Medal.
Earl married his wife, Alverta, in 1951 and became father to her four children from a previous marriage. Assigned to an Air Force base in northeast England, Earl was joined by the family. They lived in England for two years during the time the Queen of England was crowned. They had a wonderful experience in England, from living in a tiny, thatched-roof cottage to living a second year in a large, converted monastery.
Earl graduated from the University of Idaho in 1960, returning to school after many years and earning a General Motors scholarship for excellence in his academic work. Working at General Motors in Detroit for one year, Earl and his family were returning to the Idaho mountains when they traveled through Longmont and decided to stay. Earl worked at the Daily Times-Call for several years in the business office, was assistant manager at Longmont Lanes bowling alley and then began a long career with several construction firms as a cost estimator. He retired in 1988 after many years as cost estimator and vice president at Yocum Plastering Co. in Longmont.
An avid reader, bowler and member of American Legion Post 32, Earl — along with his beloved Alverta — welcomed friends and family to their Longmont home in the years after his retirement.
Earl is survived by his wife, Alverta, of Longmont; his daughters and sons-in-law, Jana Mendez and Max Dondiotti of Longmont, and Lana and Rich Lathrop of Boulder; his sons and daughters-in-law, Mike and Molly Wells of Boise and Pat and Sheila Wells of Moscow; a brother, Vern Pelton of Moscow; a sister, Kay Widner of Port Orchard, Wash.; 12 grandchildren, Jeff and Jim Wells and Teresa Rebillet of Boise, Amy Mendez of Houston, Jennifer Mendez of Longmont, Christopher Mendez of Edgewater, Jason Lathrop of Longmont, Jamie Lathrop of Longmont, Jon Lathrop of Los Alamos, N.M., Greg Wells of Coeur d’Alene, Joanie Salisbury of Redding, Calif., and Jeanne Lindhorst of Moscow.
He was delighted to have 30 great-grandchildren. Pictures of them lined the walls, shelves and albums of his home. He was preceded in death by two great-granddaughters, Ashli Salisbury and Jada Halsey-Mendez; a brother, Allen; and a sister, Connie Shaw.
Private family memorial services will be held. In lieu of flowers, contributions may be made to the Mountain State Children’s Home, 14780 N. 107th St., Longmont 80504.
