Larry Eugene Hall Obituary
Larry Eugene Hall June 19, 1951 - May 15, 2013 Larry was born on June 19, 1951 in Bakersfield, CA to Glynn and Wilma Hall. He passed away peacefully with family by his side in Bakersfield, CA on May 15, 2013. Larry graduated from Garces Memorial High School in 1969, attended Bakersfield College, and then joined the United States Army. After serving in the Army, he returned to Bakersfield where he would meet his future wife Gwen Hall (Hance), whom he married on April 3, 1976. They would remain in Bakersfield where Larry spent nearly 40 years working in the truck and trailer industry. He was a hard working dedicated man, who rarely missed a day of work. He was also a devoted high school football coach, and kept in touch with many former players long after they graduated. Larry was an avid golfer and racing enthusiast. Many of his famous "one-liners" could be heard during a round of golf with friends. However, his real passion and pride were his wife, children, and grandchildren. He never missed one of their softball or basketball games, open houses or school concerts. He was a constant presence in their life and will be missed greatly. Larry is survived by his wife of 37 years Gwen Hall (Hance), three children Christie Hall, Jacob Hall, and Jamie Hall all of Bakersfield, CA, his 5 grandchildren, Tyler Reed (19), Alison Clayton (14), Faith Hall (10), Dylan Dickerson (8), and Ryah Dickerson (7). He is also survived by his three brothers Terry Hall, Tim Hall, Mike Hall, numerous aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces and nephews. He was preceded in death by his parents Glynn Harold Hall and Wilma Jean Hall (House). A celebration of Larry's life will be held at 12pm on Thursday May 23rd at St. John's Lutheran Church 4500 Buena Vista Road, Bakersfield, CA 93311. The Hall family would also like to extend their sincerest thanks to the Physicians and Staff of the Comprehensive Blood and Cancer Center as well as the Mercy Southwest ICU Nurses.
