John Hallock (Hall) Northcott  
Beloved husband, brother, uncle and friend, died on Friday, February 5, following a valiant battle with cancer. Born in 1949, he was raised in Minnesota before heading to New York to attend Columbia University. Hall started his professional career in Washington, DC, working for Representative William Frenzel. He then worked for variety of corporate and trade associations focusing on his strong interest in politics and international trade. Although he traveled extensively throughout his career, his favorite spot was the beach; he loved the sun, sand and waves. He was also passionate about cars, particularly high-powered sports cars, and blues music. In retirement, Hall worked for his beloved Washington Nationals, and was an active volunteer in the National Presbyterian Church's Men's Ministry and 40 Plus of Greater Washington, DC. Survivors include his wife Karen; sister Heather Walker; nieces Heidi Walker, Gretchen Remington (Joe), Rozzie Eppsteiner; and nephew Harris Eppsteiner (Sloane Heller). The livestreamed funeral will be on Thursday, February 11, 2021 at 4:30 p.m. Please contact for details.

Hall was a wonderful volunteer and Board Director for 40 Plus. He was very active as a core facilitator for our job search class, an interviewer in the Pre and Post Assessments and our representative in job fairs. We are very grateful for his significant contributions in all these roles, and he will be greatly missed. My sincerest condolences to his dear wife and all his family.
