In 1972, Hal and Sarah relocated to Colville where he was employed as a mechanic by Cole Motors and Vaagen Brothers. He retired from NW Alloys as a millwright and had plenty of time to pursue his lifetime passion for fishing.
He was an active member of the Church of God in Colville (now LifeLine Church).
He is survived by his wife of 65 years, Sarah. His daughter Sue (Jones) Leake and her husband Rick. His son Ben Jones. Grandchildren Rebekah Hart and her husband Trevor, Stephanie Reha and her husband Tony, Melissa Doyle and her husband Kevin, Michelle Kowalski and her husband Joe, Jeremiah Leake and his wife Larissa. Great-grandchildren including Gabrielle, Eriana, Taylor, Jorydnne, Finlee, Audrey, Harrison, Scarlett and Huntley.
