James (Jim) David Hall
Our dearly loved husband, father, grandfather, great-grandfather and favorite cowboy, James (Jim) David Hall, left this world and rode onto greener pastures March 24, 2019 at the age of ninety-three. We are celebrating the sweet reunion he is having with many family members, friends, and his horses.
James David Hall was born September 5, 1925 to Oscar and Nida (Adamson) Hall. He was raised in Highland, Utah with his ten siblings. He learned from a very young age how to work hard by helping his dad on the family farm. He enrolled in the US Navy when he was only seventeen. He served our country for four years including a tour during World War II. He held the rank of a Yeoman. He was patriotic and instilled those values in his children and grandchildren.
Jim married his sweetheart of seventy-two years, Faye (Carter) Hall, on September 20, 1946. They were later sealed for time and all eternity on April 5, 1955. They had three children; RaKell (David) Ferre, James Van (deceased) and David Kay (deceased). They have eleven grandchildren and 27 great-grandchildren.
He was the owner of Lehi Air Conditioning and Sheet Metal, but after work he enjoyed raising and training race horses. He loved traveling throughout Utah, Idaho, Washington, California and Nevada horse racing and visiting all his cherished friends at the race track. He loved being outdoors camping and hunting. In his later years, while living in Wickenburg Arizona, one of his favorite hobbies was taking his horses and wagon to the local Assisted Care Facility where he would take the residents for a ride and treat them to ice cream.
Grandpa Jim loved his family. He made everyone around him feel like they were his favorite. He always had a story to tell, a dance to jig and a tune to play on his harmonica. He was always the life of the party!
He is survived by his wife, daughter and four siblings; Robert, Ella Mae (Stoker), Jay and Keith Hall.
Graveside services and military honors will be held Wednesday, March 27, 2019 at 3pm at the north east corner of American Fork Cemetery, 26 W 600 N. All family and friends are invited to attend.
