Delane Hall passed away Thursday, Nov. 14, 2008 at Charlton Methodist Hospital in Dallas, TX, due to complications from a sudden heart attack. He had his loving daughter, Nancy; grandsons, Michael and Nathan; and son-in-law, Wayne Clay, by his side holding him.
Delane was born on Feb. 25, 1922 in old town American Falls, to Lelia and Harold Hall.
After graduating from A.F. High School, he entered the Army as part of the Aviation Engineers specializing in metallurgy. He served in the Pacific Theater during World War II, operating heavy equipment building runways. He served his country with honor and pride in a war that claimed many, including his own brother, Harold Hall. Following the war, he returned to American Falls and later married Helen Elsenpeter on Dec. 11, 1948 and they were blessed with a daughter Nancy.
Delane worked as Power County Weed Supervisor for over 40 years, a job he loved because it brought him into contact with so many of the area farmers and their families. This past summer, he and Nancy drove through Power County. He pointed out the many farms and houses where he happily remembered being served delicious meals with the families while he was spraying their fields or cattle. He retired in the spring of 1985 with the only regret that he missed the contacts he had with so many of his friends. He was also a member of the American Falls Lions Club for many years.
Delane was always a very athletic person who enjoyed many hobbies. His greatest love was collecting parts and working on antique cars. He shared his love and knowledge of antique cars with his oldest grandson, Michael Clay, when Michael was very young. One of Michael’s fondest memories is riding on a red tractor with Grandpa. Delane was also an airplane pilot. His grandson, Michael, and daughter, Nancy, went flying with him many times when they were in Idaho. He passed the love of flying down to his youngest grandson, Nathan Clay. It was just last year that Nathan took Delane flying in Nathan’s 1946 Luscombe and encouraged his grandpa to fly the plane, which he was able to do and enjoyed very much. Delane had always wanted to see Alaska. His dream came true this past summer when his grandson, Nathan, was fulfilling an internship with the Alaska Marine Highway. Delane and his family took a vacation to Alaska and traveled on the M/V Malaspina, the ship that Nathan was navigating. He got to see many beautiful places in Alaska and also went Halibut fishing with a friend of Nathan’s from Juneau. Delane caught two 30 lb Halibut on the same line and was very proud as he reeled them in. Delane said: “It was a vacation he would remember for the rest of his life.”
Delane is survived by many loving relatives: daughter Nancy, grandsons Michael and Nathan, son-in-law Wayne Clay, his aunt June Barlow, her son, Rick and his wife Alice, his cousin’s son, Monte Glascock and his wife Marla, numerous nieces and nephews, and special friends, George Santee and Patty Litton. When he was in Idaho, he enjoyed visits from many friends. He loved their company and enjoyed being with each and every one of them.
Delane was preceded in death by his wife of 58 years, Helen Hall, parents, Lelia and Harold Hall, and his brothers, Harold and Donald Hall. It was in keeping with his giving spirit that Delane was an organ donor. Donations can be made to the American Heart Association in his name.
Services will be held at St. John’s Lutheran Church, 656 Tyhee Ave., American Falls, on Friday, Dec. 12, at 1:30 p.m. Graveside military services will follow at Falls View Cemetery.
