Mark Spencer Hall
Newton - Mark Spencer Hall, age 70, of Newton, Kansas, passed away August 20, 2021, at his home. He was born November 3, 1950, in Hays, Kansas to Raymond C. and Portia E. L. (Redpath) Hall, the eldest of five children.
Mark attended all 12 years of his early education in Quinter, Kansas, graduating in 1968. Mark was united in marriage to Colleen June Albin in Quinter, Kansas on January 2, 1972. Their 38-year marriage was blessed with two children. In 1973, he earned a Bachelor of Science degree from Kansas State University and taught high school students in Logan, Kansas. In 1975, he earned a Master's degree in Education and Counseling from Kansas State University and became the high school guidance counselor in Sterling, Kansas. There, his daughter, Michelle was born in 1977 with serious medical issues, and his desire to help people expanded to include medicine. In 1981, his son Ryan was born. In 1983, he graduated from the University of Kansas School of Medicine, and the family moved to Wichita, Kansas, where Mark completed his Family Practice Residency at St. Joseph Medical Center. Dr. Hall established a family practice clinic in Hesston, KS in 1986, where he served the community for 33 years, retiring in August of 2019.
Mark loved his occupation as a family practice doctor, for it incorporated the treatment of a patient throughout their life changes. "Doc" always took time to listen, genuinely cared for each person, and wasn't afraid to push the envelope in offering the best treatment available.
After Colleen's death on June 20, 2010, Mark married Eloise Denise (Albin) Tichenor, in Victoria, British Columbia, Canada. Together, Mark and Eloise enjoyed 10 years of marriage, hiking, and travel together, delighting in the beauty and splendor of God's creation.
There is no doubt that Mark was a fully devoted disciple of Jesus Christ. His life reflected the love of Christ, the joy of the Lord, and the divine energy of the Holy Spirit. He was a man made for friendship. He loved life, he loved people, and he enjoyed sports—particularly golf. Mark was generous with his time, talents, gifts, and service—traveling on a medical mission trip to the Ukraine in 2012.
Survivors include two children, Michelle Erin Hall of Newton, Kansas; Dr. Ryan Douglas Hall and wife Katie (Johnson) Hall of Hesston, Kansas; grandchildren, Anya June Hall and Jack Anthony Hall of Hesston, Kansas; wife, Eloise Hall, of the home; and stepdaughter Leslie Black, of Salina, Kansas. He is also survived by a sister, Isabel (Hall) Flora and husband Paul Flora of Olathe, Kansas; and a brother, Raymond W. Hall and his wife Christie, who currently reside on the island of Bohol in the Philippines.
He was preceded in death by his parents, Raymond C. and Portia E. L. (Redpath) Hall; his first wife, Colleen June (Albin) Hall; a sister, Margaret (Hall) VanDolah; and a brother, Allen A. Hall.

Was so sorry to hear of Dr Hall's passing, my husband & I & our children were patient's of Dr. Hall when he started practice as an intern at St. Joe family practice in Wichita. He then moved to Hesston & we continued to go to Hesston for his care. We all just loved Dr. Mark, Always cared & took time for us. He was also my mother's Dr. & he would always ask her " do you like ice cream? & of course mom would say yes- & he would give me a $10.00 bill & say you & your mother go have a Sunday on me! Just made my mom smile! That was the kind of person Dr Mark was, & you certainly don't find them like that today! I am 74 yrs old & my husband and I Loved Dr.Mar; we went to him way over 40 yrs!

I knew Mark for more than 60 years. He was a humble, gifted, follower of Jesus Christ. As he grew and matured, so did his faith and his character. I can honestly say that Mark was Christ-like and it was easy to see the fruit of the Holy Spirit in him: love, joy, peace, patience (maybe not so much of this), kindness, generosity, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control (Galatians 5:22-23). We will miss his presence here--and we rejoice that he is now in his heavenly home.

I loved Mark. He did so much for my family and myself over the yrs. His graciousness and kindness that expressed his relationship with Christ was so real and evident. He treated me and my family a lot over the yrs and I'm not aware we were ever charged for his services. Of course he became like family. I'm thankful for his family and the grace and mercy shown through him. Enjoy Heaven my friend. See ya soon bro. Prayers for the family.
