Obituary for Jon G. Hall

Jon G. Hall, 79, of Grantsburg, Wisconsin passed away on Friday, August 31, 2018 surrounded by his family after a long battle with chronic heart failure. Jon was born on June 29, 1939 in Sioux Rapids, Iowa to Gaylord and Clarine (Haase) Hall. Jon was the 5th of 11 children. He grew up in Iowa and Wisconsin. Jon enlisted in the Air Force in 1957 and was stationed in Great Falls, Montana and Newfoundland, Canada. He married the love of his life, Collette Braun in May of 1961 and they were married for 57 years. Together they had four children, Guy, Wendy, Faith, and Eric. The early years of Jon’s marriage were spent raising children, working in and around Hastings, MN and tending to an 80 acre hobby farm with sheep, cattle, pigs, dogs and cats. 

In 1977 Jon and his family moved to Grantsburg, WI where he and his wife ran the Broaster House Restaurant, and later, the Hallway Cafe. He built and sold two houses and in his later years worked as a custodian at Faith Lutheran Church and as a clerk at Darrell’s Hardware until his health no longer allowed him to work. 

Jon loved building things and working with his hands; he especially enjoyed making benches and tables out of wood. He was a handyman at heart and could fix almost anything. He also loved engaging in lively conversation; he was a great storyteller and was well known for his quick wit and humor. Jon would take Collette on many spur of the moment day trips. They would pick a town on a map and away they would go! He also loved spending time with his grandchildren. In recent years, he spent many hours watching Grantsburg Volleyball. He enjoyed attending games and delighted in congratulating the players after each match. 

Jon was preceded in death by his parents, Gaylord and Clarine Hall; son, Eric Hall; brothers, Wendell Hall, Dean Hall, Michael Hall; and sister, Ruth Pierce.  

He is survived by his wife, Collette; children, Guy Hall (Tina Rife), Wendy Hall, Faith McNally (Steve); grandchildren, Randi, Shane, Drew, Jenna; great-grandchildren, Evan, Abigail, Gage; siblings, Don (Karen), Diane, Chris (Bill), Vern (Rita), Edna (Myron), Janet; sister-in-law, Chiharu Hall.
