Bert Hall, 69, of Troy

Bert Hall was suddenly called home by his Heavenly Father on Thursday, June 25. He was born December 30, 1950 in Bonners Ferry, Idaho to Lyman and Rose Hall. He grew up in Troy and left only for a 4 year period of service in the Air Force. Upon returning he soon found employment with the railroad where he remained until retirement.

Bert was known for having a heart of service and his ability to connect with people. From his time in the military to serving in the church and participating in community events, Bert was always ready to share a joke or tall tale, to lend a helping hand, to quietly lead and mentor those who needed a friend. He connected with people across the world in Words With Friends and never failed to remember birthdays. Bert will be deeply missed by everyone who had the honor of knowing him.

He is survived by his wife Lucile; children Lauri & Sol Alcain, Leah & Roger Slootweg, Amanda & Ken LaCroix; 6 grandchildren, 3 great-grandchildren; brother Dennis Hall; sisters Sharon (Walt) Pesicka, Lola (Dan) Williams as well as numerous cousins, nephews, nieces and countless friends. He was preceded in death by his parents Lyman and Rose Hall.

Arrangements are by Schnackenberg Funeral Home in Eureka. Online condolences and memories may be shared at
