Harry Charles Hall Obituary
Born in Pittsfield, MA, Harry Charles Hall grew up poor but resourceful in Brooklyn, N.Y. He earned a scholarship to a Catholic high school, joined the Navy and then went to Manhattan College on the GI bill. While a student he worked as a soda jerk to support himself and at the counter he met his to-be-wife Pauline Greeley, who had moved to the Big City from White Plains. They married in August of 1951 with the first of their six children - Candice, Susan, Melinda, Stacy, Tracy, and Troy - arriving the next year. Harry, ever hard working, pursued a personnel career with a succession of multi-national firms, moving his growing family from New York, to Indonesia, to California, to Belgium, to Rhode Island and finally to New Jersey. After he and Pauline retired to Denver, Harry served as a president of Trout Unlimited, as a Roxborough Park ranger and as a board member on The Preserve homeowners' association; he built trails, taught driving safety classes, and helped Pauline with her doll shop. They traveled widely, visiting the world, even Patagonia for fishing, and their dozen grandchildren - Jef, Thea, Tore, David, Kyle, Brede, Charlotte, Amy, Dana, Martin, Maja and Patrick - until Pauline's death in 2009. Greenwood Village formally declared a Harry Hall Day in thanks for his civic engagement. Harry married Sue Shulman, now Sue M. Hall, originally from Missouri, in February 2012. They moved to Holly Creek where he took up watercolor and poetry, joined a book group and assisted neighbors whose mobility was more limited than his. Like most quiet people, he had the sharpest wit in the room and the kindest heart. Harry cared very, very much about his family, his friends, and those whom he met in his travels. His children and grandchildren are honored by the legacy of his 88 years well lived.
