December 14, 1945 – April 30, 2020
It is with great sadness that the family of Michael Hall announces his death after succumbing to dementia related illnesses on 30 April 2020. Michael will fondly be remembered by his wife of 28 years, Jean Findlay and her daughters, Wendy and Sheri, his four grandchildren, and his sister-in-law Sheila Brunies and her son Kristopher. Michael was born and raised in England and later moved to New Zealand where he became a civil engineer and then travelled the world working on nuclear and power projects including Korea, Nigeria and India. Michael will be remembered for his dry, sharp humour and remarkable stained glass creations. Michael is predeceased by his parents, Leslie and Mary Hall, and his first wife Muriel (nee. McGavin) Hall. Celebration of life service will be planned for a future date.
Barb and I are so sad to read about Mike’s passing. We took time this morning to remember all the good times we had with him and you. We think of him every time we see the steps he made for our garden.
I hope this message finds you and your family safe and well. We all are well here.
l hope you will be okay and at peace.
Our regards to you and your family.
Barb and Rob Johnson
So many memories. In Senneville and in Deep River. In the mountains.
Hope you and yours are well, as we are.
Please let us know when you are celebrating his life.
Love and condolences,
Tom and Margaret
My deepest condolences to Jean and family at this very difficult time. I will always remember Mike for his easy going nature and sense of humour. He will be missed but fondly remembered by all who knew him. Big hugs to you Jean.
Jean, we wish to express our deepest sympathies to you and the family upon the passing of Mike. May he rest in peace. May his memories give you strength at this time.
Our sincere condolences,
Stan & Ginny Lasanowski
Louise and i send you our sincere condolences at this very sad time. We have known Mike for 50 years and, although not a lot of that time was spent in the same city or even on the same continent, we have very fond memories of many good times together around the world.
With our very best wishes
Roger and Louise McGovern
It was a pleasure to work on the THEOP committee with Michael. It was sad that you left Deep River after he was diagnosed with dementia, and I’m sure the ensuing years have not been easy for you, Jean. RIP Michael.
So sorry to hear that Michael has passed away. I have fond memories of him as a classmate at Papakura High School in New Zealand where he was dux in 1964. Our parents were friends and his mum kept us informed with news about Mike until she died in 2012.
I am so sorry to have just learned about Mike’s passing.
May the many good memories bring you smiles in the years ahead!
I am so sorry for your loss, and offer you and your family, my deepest condolences. May the memories bring you comfort and may he eternally rest in peace. My good friend Murray Levine can help you remember who I am.
