I loved Hal as a friend, and I miss him. We had some fun times on the golf course in Gunnison and enjoyed the occasional phone call until just a few weeks before his passing. Hal was a great inspiration to me, and I treasure the memories.

always wanted to meet him. His great work will live on forever!

I remember when he and Burt went on Dinah Shore T V show. Hal brought a horse on set. They were regulars on her show. Loved it. He will be missed. They needed him to teach the angels with a broken wing how to jump from cloud to cloud so they wouldn't break the other wing.

May God bless you and your family in this time of sorrow.

One of the last true Gentlemen Cowboys is gone. But, Hal, what a fantastic body of work you leave behind!
Michael and I will always treasure our friendship with you and the lovely Ellyn. Don't worry. We'll watch out for her.
Rest in peace, my friend, and save a place for us on the other side.

See you on the other side.

Hal was truly an inspiration and his work motivated me to get into show business. His films will live on forever and continue to entertain generations to come. At this very moment somewhere up in Heaven, Hal is probably teaching God a few gags. RIP Mr. Needham. – Douglas Cooke

My prayers are to family and friends of Hal Needham. He and my dad, Harry, crossed paths in the 1950's through a mutual friend and paratrooper Bob Brooks. Here's a picture to remember them together and now as they are in Glory together again!

Sorry we lost Hal Needham . My condolences to his Family
October 27, 2013
In my humble opinion, Hal was more than "the icon" he is accused of being. That word is too small for the contributions he made to both the big and small screens. His influence led to huge changes in the way things were done from script-to-screen, and from the ground-up in every aspect of production "On The Ground".
Thank you Hal, for choosing the profession you did. We have all benefited in a hundred thousand ways because of it !!!

Rest in Peace.
October 27, 2013
Worked for Hal in the early-years, treated everyone as equal with respect.
RIP Buddy.
October 27, 2013
A very talented person has gone to rest. May the God who gives peace be with the entire family. Rom 15:33.
October 27, 2013
I offer my deepest condolences. Amidst the pain we are feeling, please find joy and comfort in drawing close to God, and He will supply you with strength and endurance. Romans 15:5
October 27, 2013
My sincere condolences to the Needham family. Hall entertained many and will be missed. The God of comfort cares for you. 1 Pe. 5:7
October 27, 2013
Hal was the best. Always in the background to the public but highly regarded by all who he worked with. One of the best actors and stuntmen of all time.
October 27, 2013
I remember our meeting on the set of C C Rider .... what a wonderful man... and a fun movie to work on...
October 26, 2013
Just viewed Mr. Needham in a classic Have Gun Will Travel tv episode. Obviously the beginning of a long and illustrious career. RIP

Alright, Mr. Hal- try not to get the angels doing any of those 360 turns or laying down feathers from scratching off the clouds.
You brought excitement to the screen without it being blood and guts or Rated X. Many of these computer games racing around in fancy fast vehicles have their roots in some of the stunts you came up with.
Thanks for the creativity, and a lot of laughs. RIP and may the Lord give your friends and family peace.
October 26, 2013
thanks for the memories
October 26, 2013
Thank you Hal .. For all the great fun.. Great laughs.. Great Friends.. See you down the road .. You will be missed ?
October 26, 2013
It is with great sadness to hear of Hal's passing. He was my dad's cousin and my dad remembered the two of them playing together. What is so ironic is that he passed away on the same day that my dad passed away but my dad went to Heaven in 1996. They are now together in Heaven. My deepest sympathies and prayers to his family. He was dearly loved and will be missed greatly.

October 26, 2013
Great stunt man and actor. Glad they gave you an honorary Oscar last year but you deserved it sooner. Bless you and your family.
October 26, 2013
I have been a fan and follower of Hal's since the early 70's, over 40 years, and am so very saddened to learn of his passing. I feel as if I have lost a friend even though I never had the privilege of meeting him. My deepest condolences to his family.
October 26, 2013
We'll take it from here Hal.
