Terry Hall

Terry Hall, given name Arthur Fletcher Hall III, was born August 14, 1927. He passed away peacefully January 2, 2013 in Salt Lake City, Utah. Terry was born to Dr. and Mrs. Arthur Hall Jr. in Fort Wayne, Indiana. In the summer of 1932, he and his mother and younger brother moved to Colorado Springs, where he attended Garfield Elementary School, North Junior High School, Fountain Valley School, and Cheyenne Mountain High School. He interrupted his education to join the U.S. Navy in 1945 where he served in the South Pacific. He returned to Colorado Springs in 1948 and was graduated from Colorado Springs High School (now known as Palmer High School), then entered the University of Colorado at Boulder. Terry was very active in sports at C.U. and excelled on the ski team and in diving. He was an excellent downhill and slalom skier. After two years, he left the university to become a professional ice skater. He joined Shipstad and Johnson Ice Follies and later, the Ice Capades, performing comic routines and ice dancing. Ten years of being on the ice damaged his feet, so Terry left the Ice Capades and worked for General Dynamics in Pomona, California as a Material Control Analyst. He laughingly called himself "just a janitor". He also enrolled in the Pasadena Playhouse, a renown school for actors and had a brief career in films and television. Terry's biggest love was sports car racing. Through the years he owned many cars including a Mercedes Benz 300SL, a Ferrari 1.9,and a Porsche Roadster. Terry is survived by his brother, Samuel Foster Hall, of Colorado Springs, his son, Ty Hall, given name Arthur Fletcher Hall IV of Park City, Utah, grandchildren, Sarah, Alexander, and Zachary, and niece, Alicia Hall. At Terry's request there will be no service. There will be a celebration of his life later in the spring in Salt Lake City.
