Wayne Ronald Hall

June 1, 1942 - May 25, 2022

Tribute

Wayne was born June 1, 1942, in Calgary, Alberta. He was the second of four children born to Gerald and Marion Hall.  He has an older brother Jerry (Darlene), a younger brother Daryl (Bernarda) and a younger sister Loretta (Bill, deceased). He was still an infant when the family moved to BC. His early years were spent in Queensborough where he and Jerry were involved in the Queensborough MB church. In his mid-teens the family moved to Surrey.

In 1960 and 1961 Wayne attended Bethany Bible Institute where he met Betty.  They were married September 14, 1963.  In 1964 they welcomed Jody and in 1966 Randy arrived to complete the family.

The early days of marriage were less than ideal as Wayne became more and more dependent on alcohol. In January of 1978 an encounter with Jesus removed that addiction and family life became a priority.  More than anything he wanted to please his Lord.  Everyone who knew him knew he was a believer.  He shared his faith often.

Wayne was employed at Scott Paper for most of his working days.  He took early retirement when Scott was sold. In 1997 they moved to Mission and enjoyed many wonderful trips:  Egypt, Israel, China, Italy, Panama and multiple trips to Arizona and Hawaii.

He loved spending time with the grandchildren.  He was so proud of them and enjoyed celebrating every milestone in their lives.
Wayne loved yard work and gardening.  He proudly showed off to any grandchild who came to visit.

Most of the Mission years were spent at Northside Community Church where Wayne served as trustee, elder and care group leader.

In 2016 he started having series of mini strokes that robbed him of his ability to walk. He developed dementia and suffered a slow decline. In 2017 they sold their house and moved to Abbotsford to Randy’s ground level suite.

He went into care in July of 2020.  Covid made visiting very restrictive but thankfully Tabor Home never stopped Betty’s visits.

Wayne passed away on May 25th, one week before his 80th birthday.  He leaves to mourn his wife, Betty, two children: Jody (Dwight) and Randy (Jannie), and seven grandchildren: Jeremy, Micah and Rachel Siebert and Kaylee, Ryan, Sam, and Jayden Hall.   He is survived by his brothers, Jerry (Darlene), Daryl (Bernarda) and sister, Loretta Alexander.

We rejoice that Wayne is free from his body and mind that were his prison.  We miss him dearly but are glad his suffering is over.

Those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength.  They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary;  they will walk and not faint.

Isaiah 40:31

Happy Soaring, Wayne!
