Dallas Brenchley Hall

April 9, 1938 – March 20, 2019
Dallas Brenchley Hall passed away peacefully on a beautiful, sunny afternoon, March 20, 2019, surrounded by his loved ones. He was 80 years old.
Dallas was born in Logan, Utah on April 9, 1938 to his proud parents, Evan Gunnell and Gretta Brenchley Hall. He was the third of four sons. He was fortunate to grow up in a little four room log cabin on their family farm just North of Wellsville.
Dallas attended Floradell Elementary School, Wellsville Junior High and was proud to graduate from Seminary and South Cache High School. He later joined the United States Air Force where his love of planes began. He was especially fond of the B-52, B-47 Bombers and the KC-135 Air Refueling Tanker. He was Honorably Discharged four years later. His time in the Air Force helped prepare him for a career at Hill Air Force Base where he worked for thirty-three years before he retired. After he retired, he worked with UDOT and Wellsville City for a short time. A tree was recently planted in his honor at Wellsville City Cemetery.
Dallas met and fell in love with his eternal companion, Deon Buist Larsen Hall, with the help of a little cotton tail rabbit and some dear friends. They were married on May 18, 1962 in the Logan LDS Temple. They shared almost 55 wonderful years together before Deon passed away on April 23, 2017. Dallas was never the same. He suffered from a broken heart and longed for the day that he would be reunited with his sweetheart again. Dallas and Deon were proud to say they were lifelong residents of Wellsville and grateful to have had the opportunity to raise their family in such a great community.
Dallas and Deon were blessed with two sons and two daughters: Brett (Kristi) Hall and Shelley (Doug) Keller of Preston, Idaho; and Shawn (Lori) Hall and Kamee (Robert) Summers of Wellsville, Utah. Although, Dallas was probably the most proud of his title as “Grandpa”. He had nine grandchildren who absolutely adored him. Kelsie (Byron) Ricks, Bridger and Tyson (Ashlie) Hall, Tawni (Tayson) Reid, Garrett and Madi Hall, McCoy, Kayci and Kohler Summers. They were the pride and joy of his life. He was always the happiest when he was surrounded by his family.
Dallas was a dedicated member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints and served faithfully in many callings throughout his life. He valued and loved his calling as Home Teacher the most. He developed cherished friendships for the people that he served and spoke of them often. He became an influence to many that knew him. He was called to be a Temple Worker in the Logan LDS Temple where he humbly served for eight years.
Dallas was captivated with the outdoors. Growing up he could always be found outside. Oh the hunting stories he could tell. And did tell. To anyone that would listen. He was either in the mountains looking for the “big one” or cultivating his garden to perfection. He was often found sitting in his lawn chair watching his garden grow. He was proud of the fact that he had one of the most beautiful gardens in town and loved to share the bounty with everyone.
Singing was very near and dear to his heart. He was always involved in a choir, singing group or barbershop quartet performing for anyone and everyone. Even in his final days he brightened our spirits with songs near and dear to his heart.
Dallas was preceded in death by his beloved wife; parents; a still-born sister; two brothers, DeLoy Hall and William Hall; a brother-in-law, Owen Christensen; and two sister-in-laws, Sandi Larsen and Nita Christensen.
Dallas is survived by his children; brother, Lynn(Cheyenne) Hall of Del Rio, Texas; and in-laws, Arlene Hall, Val Dean Larsen, Lorene (Steven) Leishman, Sharon (Dennis) Simper and Gary (Nancy) Larsen.
Funeral services will be held at noon on Tuesday, March 26th, at the Wellsville 8th Ward building, 200 South Center Street, in Wellsville. Viewing will be held from 6 to 8 p.m. on Monday, March 25th at The Allen-Hall Mortuary on Center Street in Logan, and from 10:30 to 11:30 a.m. on Tuesday at the Wellsville 8th Ward Building.
The family wishes to thank Wellsville 8th Ward for all the love and service that was offered to our Dad. He was so grateful for all of the visits, and especially the treats that were brought to him regularly. We also wish to thank the amazing staff at Maple Springs who rendered such tender and compassionate care. We know that you will not be able to forget him very soon. Lastly, our love and deep appreciation of Dallas’s many dear friends and neighbors who shared so many kind acts of love and service. We sincerely thank you.
