Mr. George Calvin Hall

It is with great sadness that the family of the late George Calvin Hall (Cal) announce his passing at Glengarry Memorial Hospital on Tuesday, January 22, 2019 at the age of 84 years.

He leaves behind his amazing wife, Jacomina Hall (nee Pieren). He was an incredible father to 7 children, Roland (Jessie), Florence, Nancy, Darlene (Gerry), Heather (Ken), Natasha (Valerio), Calvin (predeceased) and loving grandfather to adoring grandchildren Spencer, Austin and Faith. He was a devoted brother to Florence, Katherine, Debbie, Peggy and Tina, and predeceased by Gerald, Lorraine and Walter. He will be remembered by many friends and family across Canada and in the Netherlands.

Cal was born August 17, 1934 to James and Florence Hall (nee Snow) in North River, in the then Republic of Newfoundland. Cal worked incredibly hard for his family; at times held several jobs in order for Jacomina to stay home. He proudly served 28 years in the Canadian Military, and was well known for his cooking skills and his sense of humour—he always had a joke or funny story to tell.

He was happiest laughing, joking, and playing his accordion, harmonica and fiddle. Being a self-taught musician, Alzheimers took his memories, but not his music. He sang songs and played accordion to the last few weeks of his full life.

Our loss is profound.

In lieu of flowers, donations to the Alzheimer Society (P.O. Box 1852, Cornwall (ON) K6H 6N6, ) would be appreciated.

Miep and family
Gwen and I extend our deepest sympathy to Miep and family on Cal's passing. He was a dear friend and special cousin to all of us Hurley children especially on the sudden passing of our father in 1954. He was always there for assistance and support whenever it was needed. He was also a special nephew to our Mother who revered him and treated him as one of her own. He was Christian in so many special ways.
May he rest in peace

It is with the utmost sadness to hear of Cal's passing. I send my most sincere condolences to you Miep and Roland, Florence, Nancy, Darlene, Heather, Natasha and all members of your family during this difficult time. While no words can can express how you are all feeling right now, I hope you are all cherishing the great memories that you have all had with this wonderful man. Cal has been with me this past few days and will be for the rest of my life I assure you. For me, Cal was an amazing uncle and shared many stories of his life and times in Newfoundland and abroad over the years. While I know in recent years his memories have been compromised with Alzheimer's, he was always known to have such a vivid memory and could literally recount steps from his childhood. He was such a great story teller and dearly loved music and song. I look back at the close friendship he had with my father Stephen Hurley and my uncle John Hurley and I can only envision the three of them now in heaven laughing, arguing, or having a drink together and enjoying the afterlife to the fullest. I send this final farewell to one of the finest of men, my Uncle Cal.

Sincere condolences to you, Miep, your children and extended family on the passing of a wonderful man. Over the years through his interaction through John, Steve and Florie , Cal became a close family friend. He was always willing to lend a hand, pass an hour in idle chat, entertain with a story. There was always such a sense of serenity surrounding him - May he find eternal serenity in the loving arms of his Maker.

Dear Miep & Family,
It is with fondest memories that I write this heartfelt message of condolence to all of you. Cal was always so kind to stop in and visit mom and dad, tell a few stories, and maybe even a song or two. He certainly had a zest for life. I know your hearts are heavy but he will always be with you.
Peace to you all.

To the Hall family, my heartfelt condolences to all of you. I have many memories of Cal, especially during my teenage years with my many visits to the family home with Heather. He always seemed to be happy, with a story to tell. Cal and Miep always visited with mom and Dad and Cal was forever trying to talk Dad into combing his hair so it didn’t stand up straight! He was also very proud of his family. He was a valued member of the community and will be remembered in so many ways.
