RICHARD A. HALL Ilwaco resident Richard Hall, 69, passed away peacefully on August 29, 2013 at Emanuel Hospital in Portland with is wife Kay Hall and good friend Bobbie at his side. A 33 year resident of Ilwaco, Richard was blessed with many friends on the Peninsula. The son of Leonard and Edna (Evans) Hall, he was born in California. When he was a young boy his family moved to Ely, Nevada. There he graduated from high school. He received his master's degree in education and bachelor's degree in art from the University of Utah and taught high school in Utah for nine years. In 1980 he moved to Ilwaco with his wife Kay. There they build their "first and only" log house and Richard became known as one of the best jewelry designers in the community. He had unwitting skills for most any jewelry repair and had a vast knowledge of metallurgy and precious stones which was unsurpassed. Richard also had a love of cars. He custom built a 1933 Ford hot rod with the help of good friend Jerry Harmonthis vehicle especially modified to accommodate a person with disabilities. Richard was a member of the Beach Barons Car Club. Other than his profession for jewelry, Richard had a fond love of photography, woodworking, cooking, and spending time with family and friends. His yellow lab, Liza, was always at his side. This was a man who was not defined by his disability. Besides his wife Kay Hall of Ilwaco, Richard is survived by sister Elaine and Marilyn; two step-children; four grandchildren; and numerous nieces and nephews. There will be no service at the request of the family. His guestbook is available at www.penttilaschapel.com.
