Lloyd L. Hall

June 14, 1922 - Jan. 1, 2014
SOUTH BEND - Lloyd L. Hall is the son of Thomas and Alice Hall of Williamsport, PA. He is the last of ten children from the Hall Homestead of four generations. After graduation from Little Rock High School he moved to Mishawaka, Indiana where he worked at Ball Band (Uniroyal) and met his future wife, Louisa M. Shoemaker. They were married on Aug 27th, 1942 at First United Methodist Church in Mishawaka, IN. He is survived by his wife of seventy-one years, Louisa M. (Shoemaker) Hall. On Dec. 6th, 1943 Lloyd enlisted in the U.S. Army and served until the end of World War II. The majority of his time was spent in the Philippines; while there his duties included Director of Communications as well as restoring the Philippine Islands telephone system. After World War II, Lloyd returned to Mishawaka, Indiana. He was hired by IBM and worked on such major accounts as the University of Notre Dame, Associates, Bendix, Bayer and other regional accounts for 38 years. At his retirement party from IBM the most notable thing mentioned from Lloyd's boss and fellow workers was his love for his children, wife and family. As a professional and a friend to all he was highly respected in the work place, church and community. Lloyd loved taking his family on trips to Lake Michigan, vacations all across the U.S., and scouting trips with his sons. Family get-togethers provided many fun and fond memories for children and their spouses and grandchildren. From the time of his youth, Lloyd committed to make life better for all who followed him. His family as well as coworkers and friends all have benefited from this commitment. His kindness, humility and integrity were obvious in all of his dealings with all he met. In retirement he took up woodworking and crafted well over 150 items. Instead of accepting any payment, he asked that contributions be made to Hospice. His woodworking included furniture, tables, toys, and frames for family, church, and nonprofit organizations (Hospice). He helped others build houses and care for lawns. Out of their deep and abiding love for each other, Lloyd and Louisa were blessed with six children: Curtiss L. (Mari) Hall (Kalamazoo, MI), Thomas C. (Janice) Hall (Mechanicville, NY), Richard A. (Pam) Hall (Frisco, TX), Marjorie A. (Art) DeArmond (deceased), Patricia L. (Michael) Brubaker (Elkhart, IN), and Michelle K. (Robert) Heiden (Plymouth, IN). His love for and commitment to family was paramount in everything that he did for his entire adult life. There was no sacrifice too great and no time more important than time spent with family. He is loved and respected by fourteen grandchildren and twenty-six great-grandchildren. The family will receive friends on Sunday, January 5, 2014 from 2:00-3:00 pm at First United Methodist Church Mishawaka, 201 E. 3rd Street, Mishawaka, IN. Funeral Services will be conducted at 3:00 pm with Rev. Carolyn Kern and Jacob Brubaker officiating In keeping with his practice and wishes, the family asks that in lieu of flowers, contributions be made to Center for Hospice Care, 501 Comfort Place, Mishawaka, IN 46545.
