carl hallELKHART – Carl Edward Hall, 89, died Thursday, June 25, 2020 at his home in Morton County. 

He was born Sept. 5, 1930 to James A. and Madge R. (Holcomb) Hall in Elkhart. 

He married Margaret A. Hall Nov. 7, 1955. She survives.

He was drafted into the United States Army April 18, 1951.  He was a Corporal with the 15th Constabulary Squadron. After an honorable discharge, he returned home to continue farming.

He started farming with $2,000 in debt and an old “D” John Deere tractor. To support his family, he had a long career involving different jobs such as custom cutting, swathing and baling, rough necking in the oil fields, building farm machinery, and growing crops. For many years, he worked all day in the fields farming and then at night he worked in the oil fields.

He had an interest in flying, and purchased an Aero-Coupe airplane and enjoyed flying over his crops. 

He also enjoyed spending time attending and competing at antique tractor pulls.

He loved children and often would find his grandchildren sitting on his lap.  He provided old fashioned homemade toys to entertain his grandchildren including hoola-hoops, stilts, and birdhouses.  He always had old jeeps, scooters, and 4-wheelers for the kids to drive around the farm.

Survivors also include children: Donna Heincker and husband, Dwight, Spring Hill, Sam Hall, Liberal, Tom Hall and wife, Debra, Sylvia, and Patrick Hall and girlfriend, Pam Dolan, Topeka; siblings: Carol Hall, Mary Ansagar, John L. Hall, Gene Hall, and James Keith Hall; and 10 grandchildren.

He was preceded in death by his parents; brothers: Victor, Richard, Marvin and Max; sisters, Claudia Reason and Phyllis Cramer; infant son, James LaDuke Hall; daughters, Peggy Hall and Carla Nelson; and grandchildren, Carl and Maggie Hall.
