Hal, age 86, passed away October 1st, 2013. Hal once said, the best decision he ever made was marrying his wife Lil. He loved his family being the oldest of eight, he always set a good example for his siblings, Glen, Norma, Vern, Eleanor, Clifford, Gerald (predeceased) and Shirley. Hal built roads all over Saskatchewan. He was a dedicated employee to Evans Construction and Corman Park municipality, but his passion was aviation and hunting. After he retired, his son, Jim included Hal on the television show "Jim Shockey's Hunting Adventures", where Hal achieved celebrity status. He was a really good father to his children, Jim, Geraldine and Barbara. As a grandfather he was enjoyed by Branlin, Tony, Eva, Jamie and Thomas. Everyone loved and respected Hal, his wife, siblings, children, grandchildren, nephews and nieces. He will be greatly missed.
