Bruce T. Halle

Scottsdale - It is with heavy hearts that we share the news that Discount Tire founder and company Chairman Bruce T. Halle passed away peacefully in his sleep on Thursday, January 4, 2018.

Bruce T. Halle is survived by his wife Diane, his loving children Bruce T. Halle, Jr. (Nikki), Susan Lyle (Wilson), Lisa Pedersen (Chris) and Michael Zuieback (Sheila); siblings Bob Halle (Nancy), Mary Ellen Merrill, Betty Halle; and 7 grandchildren. He was predeceased by three brothers; Fred, Jim and Alan, and the mother of his children, Geraldine (Gerry) Konfara Halle.

A humble man, Halle shied away from industry recognition, preferring to give almost all the credit for the company's continued success to his store employees whom he considered family.

Giving back to the communities where customers and employees reside was a focal point of Halle's leadership. He and wife, Diane, launched The Diane & Bruce Halle Foundation, a philanthropic resource for a broad range of charitable endeavors.

The family has held a private service in his honor. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in his name to his favorite charities: Marine Corps Scholarship Fund, 909 N. Washington St., Suite 400, Alexandria, VA 22314, www.mcsf.org; UMOM New Day Centers, Inc., 3333 E. Van Buren St., Phoenix, AZ 85008, www.umom.org; Bruce T. Halle Assistance Fund, 20225 N. Scottsdale Rd., Scottsdale, AZ 85255, www.bthaf.org.

"There are really just five simple lessons to life: Be honest, work hard, have fun, be grateful and pay it forward." - Bruce T. Halle
