Gratton (Red) Emmett Hall
March 9, 1929 – September 26, 2020
Red Hall passed through the veil on to eternity on the evening of September 26, 2020 in Mount Pleasant, Utah after a short illness. He has gone to find the best fishing hole ever. He has taken with him our love and the many memories we have experienced over the years. He left behind so many friends, many of whom considered him their best friend.
Red worked hard all of his life. After graduating from high school, he drove a candy truck from Vernal to Salt Lake City every day making deliveries along the way. That is how he met the love of his life, Betty Ruth Smith. They dated for a while and then decided to tie the knot in Jackson Hole Wyoming on October 6, 1948. Their marriage was later solemnized in the Los Angeles CA Temple on December 12, 1959. After working in the oil fields in Texas, he did some construction work and decided to use the skills he learned from his dad to start his own construction company. He worked for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints building chapels all over San Fernando Valley California. In 1966 he moved his family to Vernal Utah because of the political unrest in Los Angeles. There they lived in Vernal until 1980. They spent some time in Utah County until 2006 when they moved to Mount Pleasant.
Red leaves behind his wife of 72 years, Betty Ruth Hall, his children Carol (CJ) Hall Baker (Steven), Robert (Bob) E. Hall (Joyce), Rock G. Hall, and Joy L. Hall Richardson (Don). 16 grandchildren, 34 great grandchildren and 5 great great grandchildren. He is preceded in death by his beloved parents Emmett A. Hall and Irene Wilcoxson, his daughter Linda “Lynda” Rae Hall Arave, his grandson Trenton Gratton Hall, granddaughter Brittney Marie DeLuca and twin great great granddaughters, Talya and Nevaeh Scerbo. Also his brothers Duane and Wayne (his wife Jackie), Weldon, Dennis, his sister Kathryn and (her husband Kent).
Red served for many years in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints as an Elder’s Quorum president, first counselor in 5 different bishoprics, and scout master. He also served in the Manti, UT Temple.
Due to the many restrictions and worries with COVID, the family will only have a graveside service at the Fairview City Cemetery on October 3, 2020. Please leave any remembrances or condolences on the Rasmussen Mortuary website Thank you to all of his care givers and wonderful friends and family.
