Obituary for Delbert Lee Hall
Delbert Lee Hall, 74, passed away peacefully on Monday, April 14, 2014 in a local care facility with his loving wife of 50 years by his side. He had been surrounded by many family members in recent days.
Delbert was born November 27, 1939 in Scottsbluff, Neb. to Laverne D. and Burnice L. Hall. His family moved to Washington, then settled in the Portland, Ore. area. After moving to eastern Oregon, Delbert attended schools in Umatilla where he was an outstanding athlete and selected to play in the East-West Shrine football game. After graduation, he served in the US Navy Construction Battalion and was stationed in Guam and Okinawa, traveling also to Tokyo, Hong Kong and Hawaii.
Delbert met Nina D. Burns and they married in September, 1963. They moved to LaGrande, Ore. where he attended Eastern Oregon College and then to Klamath Falls where he graduated from Oregon Institute of Technology. He was employed for 36 years as a Nuclear Engineer by the University of Chicagos Argonne National Laboratory at the Idaho Nuclear Engineering Laboratory near Idaho Falls, Idaho. Delbert and Nina raised their family in Idaho Falls with many trips to nearby Yellowstone National Park and Grand Teton National Park. During their years together, they traveled from Canada to Mexico, California to North Carolina, and from Florida to Maine visiting most states in between as well as most countries in Europe. They moved to Brookings in 1994 and enjoyed many happy years here.
Delbert was a loving father, grandfather, and, most recently, a great grandfather, a good friend to many and will be missed dearly. He is survived by his wife, Nina, of Brookings, his daughter, Leandrea D. Hall of Washougal, Wash., his son, Michael R. Hall, DDS of Bend, Ore., two grandsons, three granddaughters, and one great grandson, as well as his brother, David Lorence and his wife, Mary, of Umatilla, Ore.
At Delberts request, there will be no service.
