Hal was born in Anaheim, California on August 28, 1929. He is survived by Gay; son Tad and his wife Debbie and their children Tyler, Jessica and Nathan; daughter Jana Owens and her husband Darrell and their children Travis and Nikki; son Steven; three brothers; three sisters; and scores of nieces and nephews. He also leaves a multitude of friends.
Hal served as a minister of the gospel in several Nazarene churches in northern and southern California, ending his full-time ministry having served 24 years as senior pastor of Auburn's Parkside Nazarene Church.
His earthly life was one of humble, loving obedience to his Savior. The world is better, and we are blessed because Hal touched lives for God and good.
A celebration of Hal's life will be held at Parkside Nazarene Church on Monday, May 12, 2014 at 11 a.m.
In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to Parkside Church of the Nazarene to the Harold Bonner Ministerial Studies Scholarship.
