Obituary

Jerry Max Hall passed away on May 28, 2020. He was born October 6, 1940 in Heavener, OK to the late Walton H. and Peggy Hall. They moved to Granite Bay, CA in 1943 where his parents opened Hall’s Market on Barton Road.  Jerry attended Eureka School and graduated from Roseville High School in 1958. Jerry served the 101st Airborne and was stationed at Fort Campbell, KY where he met and married Jane Potter Hall in 1963. They have two children, Marla Hall Pingree and Mark Hall. Jerry trained with the Grandmaster Kang, 10th Dan and gained his 3rd degree black belt.  In his karate career he mastered the art of high kicks and breaking bricks which was enjoyed by many at tournaments.  Jerry enjoyed teaching and mentored many beginning students in the art of Tae Kwon Do.  In 1986 Jerry married Martha Guttierez Tausch and had a son, Justin Hall. Jerry worked for the Southern Pacific Railroad for 27 years where he made many lifetime friends. He enjoyed his career with SP RR, but it was cut short after severe train wreck. Jerry’s love for hunting and ranching took him to Afton, WY in 1989 where he established his ranch and built his dream log cabin overlooking Star Valley, WY. At 51 Jerry rode his last bull at the local Lincoln County Fair Rodeo where the clown told him, “good ride cowboy” which was a great moment for him.  Jerry raised cattle and horses and often was his own veterinarian including shoeing and caring for his own horses. Jerry enjoyed a healthy lifestyle including working out to the last days of his life.  He was part of the 50 400 club which was being over 50 years old and benching over 400 lbs.   His love of lifting lead him to mentor and instruct Star Valley’s youth in proper lifting techniques. He lived his life to the fullest and one of the last words he told his son Mark was “it’s been quite a party, son”. Jerry was a loving father, grandfather, friend to many and will be so dearly missed. He is survived by his children Marla (Jeff) Pingree, Mark (Diane) Hall and Justin (Clarice) Hall. He is also survived by his grandchildren Alyssa and Savannah Pingree, Cheyenne, Everett and Felicity Hall.
