HALL, Allison Lemoine “Al”
Bridgetown NS

March 12, 1934 – April 19, 2024


Born in Beaconsfield, the second son of the late Arnold and Della (Sarty) Hall. He married Colleen (Kelly) in 1958, and they raised daughters Linda (William) Halsey, Christine Hall, and Terri (Randy) Milton. He married Bette (Campbell - Rowlands) in 1989. Bette & Al were the lively center of blended family gatherings which now included Bryn, Kathleen(David), Bruce (Catherine), Dave, and Kim. Al leaves behind grandchildren Jeff, Kristen (Willy), Cara (Ryan), Christy (Matt), Caity (Matt), Ben (Caitlin), Sam (Maia), Nick (Emily), Chlöe (Marshall), Luc (Victoria), Hannah, Logan, Jordan, and Caleb (Anissa); and great-grandchildren Ari, Lexie, Max, Theo, Milo, Ellie, Quinn, Ava, Charlotte, Jadyn, and Kennedy. Above all things, Al cherished being Grandad.

Al’s career in electronics began at Saint John Vocational School, where he graduated as a Radio Operator in 1953. He was immediately hired in Saint John as a Morse code/Teletype communicator as part of Canada’s DEW line construction. Next, he went to Dawson Creek as a radio operator for Bell Telephone Co. as part of the Mid-Canada (Radar) Line project. He then took a radio technician position with Canadian Marconi Company back in Saint John, with transfers to the Halifax and Yarmouth offices throughout his 11 years with the company. In his final career move, he opted to teach electronics at the Annapolis Regional Vocational School (now NSCC) in Middleton.

He loved teaching and retired in 1994 after a 26-year career, which he described as both a tremendous amount of work and a lot of fun. He could recite his class rosters from each year, alphabetically, until the time of his death, and receiving visits and updates from his former students brought him great joy. He was an amateur radio operator (VE1FF), a woodworker, an inventor, a sketcher, a builder, an avid reader, and a creative thinker. Al was active in several community organizations over the years, but he found special fellowship with the 74th Crusaders Motorcycle Club, with whom he enjoyed many spectacular rides and rallies, and served a term as President during his long membership.

Al is survived by his brother Randy (Irene) and nephew, Tim Hall. He was predeceased by Colleen, Bette, brother Gerald and sister-in-law Joyce Hall, and nephew Merton Hall. The family wishes to thank the staff of Crosskill Court in Bridgetown, particularly Karel and Rosie, for their devoted attention to Dad; the Soldiers Memorial and Valley Regional Hospital Emergency and Medical departments for top-tier medical service; and the SMH Veterans’ Wing for outstanding, compassionate care over the past 2 years. Thanks to Graham Buckler for his generous support, and to many other steadfast friends for their companionship and correspondence throughout the years. Cremation has taken place and there will be no visitation or interment ceremony by request. The family thanks Kaulbach Family Funeral Home in Bridgetown for their diligence and professionalism.

A celebration of life is being planned for August. Donations in Al’s memory may be made to the 74th Crusaders at 104 Bike Club Lane, Moschelle NS B0S 1A0; Soldiers Memorial Hospital Foundation – Veterans Unit; or the Valley Regional Hospital Foundation. To view and leave condolences please visit:
