George “Red” Hall

EDMOND —     George Jacob “Red” Hall, 95, was born in Custer County and saw nearly a century of history before passing away at home on Saturday, March 23, 2013.  He was born to George and Edith (Betts) on March 8, 1918, and raised just north of Wetmore in the family’s old stone house. 

    After marrying the love of his life, Ruby Louise Vickerman, in 1945, they were devoted to the ranches they worked around Colorado until George retired at the J and V Diller Ranch in Deer Trail, Colo., in 1994.  They enjoyed living on the ranch until they relocated to Oklahoma in 2010 to be close to family.

    “Red” was fond of his days in Colorado and loved to share stories of times from a horse and buggy and a 100,000 acre ranch to a Mercury Grand Marquis and a couple acres in Oklahoma.

    George was preceded in death by his parents; brothers Francis and James; sister Doris Smith; daughter-in-law Leah (Hart) Hall, and beautiful granddaughter Heather Hall. 

    He is survived by his wife Ruby; two sons, Jerry and wife Pam of Arvada, Colo., and Tom and wife Karen of Edmond, Okla.; his sister Donna and Gene Coleman, of Howard, Colo.; grandchildren, Marcus and Dayla Hall of Piedmont, Okla., Karen and Jeremy Hayes, Lochbouie, Colo., Misty Zink and Weldon Kilpatrick and Monte and Tammy Blatnick, all of Weatherford, Okla.; Stacy and Brian Doughty of Pampa, Texas; Krystin and Zach Land  and Kaleb Hinkel, all of Edmond; great-grandchildren Sabrina and Kyla Hall of Piedmont, Ryan, Jacob  and Sara Hayes of Lochbouie, Amanda Blatnick of Oklahoma City, Justin Blatnick and wife Jordan, US Marines in Twentynine Palms, Calif., Ray Blatnick of Weatherford, Kenzee Doughty of Pampa, Ashlyn and Noah Land of Edmond; great-great granddaughter, Jadalynn Blatnick of Twentynine Palms, Calif.; and many nieces and nephews who have lost their very favorite uncle.

    A memorial service will be 2 p.m. Friday, March 29, 2013 in the Chapel of Baggerley Funeral Home,  920 S. Broadway, Edmond, OK.  After the Columbines are blooming in Westcliffe, Colo., an interment will be scheduled at Rosita Cemetery.

    In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the American Cancer Society.
