Former Soldotna resident Wallace "Dean" Hall died Sunday, March 12, 2000, in Great Falls, Mont., after a short illness. He was 50.
Memorial services were held March 22, 2000, at Cope Memorial Chapel of Aztec, N.M.
Mr. Hall was born Oct. 3, 1949, to William D. and Wilma Glover Hall in McCamey, Texas. He grew up in Aztec, N.M., where he attended school until the 11th grade.
He then moved to Twin Falls, Idaho, where he graduated in 1967. While in school, he loved to play football, but his sport of choice was Little League Baseball. He continued the sport after school by being a coach and an umpire.
Mr. Hall went to work in the oil fields at an early age, and worked in California, Alaska and New Mexico before moving to Great Falls in 1995. He finished his career as a driller.
"Dean enjoyed his work in the oil fields and was proud and dedicated to it," his family said. "For relaxation, he loved to fish. He would fish anywhere there were fish, but his most special place was the ocean (off) Alaska."
Mr. Hall was preceded in death by his father, William "Dude" Hall, who died in 1986.
Mr. Hall is survived by his son and daughter-in-law, Dean Edward and Kayla Hall of Oklahoma City, Okla., and Dean Edward's mother, Bonnie Hall; Jacob Levi Hall and his mother, Loujan Harris, both of Aztec; grandchildren, Sarah, Megan, Matteson Rose and Bonnee Hall; mother and stepfather Wilma and Jim Anderson of Aztec; brother and sister-in-law, Charles D. and Nita Hall of Aztec;
