Gary was born on August 28, 1938 in Indianola, IL, a son of Glenn and Imogene (Eveland) Hall. He married the love of his life, Patricia A Van Deventer in Urbana on June 21st, 1959.
Survivors include: His Wife, Patricia of Mahomet; one son, Greg (Marcy) Hall of Mahomet; two grandchildren, Chelsie (Ryan) Elmer of Mahomet and Grayson (Jenna) Hall of Mahomet; 3 great-grandchildren (Logan & Reagan Elmer, G. Elliott Hall); and one brother, Steve (Donna) Hall of Denver, CO.
He retired from the U of I as a printshop foreman in 1997, after 36 years of service. He loved spending time in his woodshop, building everything from primitive crafts to beautiful pieces of furniture. He was also a skilled home builder and built all 3 homes his family lived in, as well as years of remodeling many homes in the community.
Whether it was camping with his family, or cycling with his best friend Bruce, he lived life to the fullest. Gary was a friend to all, and never missed the opportunity to extend an invitation to church. He was a member for 50 years at First Church of the Nazarene and for the last 21 years at Grace Church of Mahomet, where he always enjoyed being involved and volunteering his time. Above all, his greatest joy was his family and he will be dearly missed.
