Wilfred Ralph Hall
Wilfred "Wilf" Ralph Hall, 88, passed away peacefully on Friday, August 3, 2001. He was known to many friends in England, Bermuda, Canada, and Virginia as a warm, considerate, and charming man.
He leaves behind his wife, Christina "Chris" Hall, son, Brian Ralph Hall and his wife, Frankie June Hall, all of Elmwood Farm, Orange; four grandchildren, Susan Angele Thomson, and Peter Ralph, Brian Robert, and Michael David Hall; and eight great-grandchildren. His parents, William and Clara Ralph Hall, and a sister, Constance Aspden, preceded him in death.
He was born Sept. 22, 1912, in Gorton in Manchester, England. At a young age, he joined his father in business and became the "& Son" in W.W. Hall & Son. His father had been a carriage builder, but by the time Wilf was in his teens, W.W. had turned his hand to automobiles, which were then being built by hand and had wooden frames.
In the mid-1930s he joined Crossley Motors in Manchester and continued his trade in building and repairing fine cars and buses. When World War II arrived, Crossley Motors converted to the fabrication of aircraft components. Wilf was responsible for the construction of many prototype items, such as the full revolution gun turret for aircraft deployed by the Royal Air Force.
Though he attempted to enlist for military service several times, his industrial role was considered more important for the war effort. He therefore joined the Auxiliary Fire Service and saw action in Manchester and Liverpool during the nights of the Nazi bombing raids on those cities. He was also responsible for the fire services of Crossley Motors.
After the war in 1945, he and his wife, Chris, bought a property in Bagillt, North Wales. It became a garage, body repair shop, and filling station. They developed strong friendships with many people in the village and continued up to the present to maintain contact with their Welsh friends. Their business thrived until 1952, when Wilf saw an advertisement for a job in Bermuda. Never having traveled, he felt that this was his opportunity to "see the world," even though at that time he had no idea where Bermuda was.
He was recruited by Pearman, Watlington & Co. to develop their car repair and service capabilities. Cars had been introduced to Bermuda five years earlier. Wilf worked for Pearman, Watlington & Co. for 25 years, running their automotive division and subsequently, at St. John's Road, their heavy equipment division. True to his word, and to his employers' surprise, he retired on his 65th birthday.
Having helped his only son launch a business, he joined him on a part-time basis after his retirement.
Then in 1980, after a visit to relatives in British Columbia, he and his wife left Bermuda for Victoria on Vancouver Island, British Columbia. They made many friends in Victoria, with Wilf in his element as a member of the Vancouver Island Model Engineer Club. As an engineer, Wilf's lifelong hobby was building scale model steam locomotives. The club was at last a chance for him to meet, talk about and enjoy the hobby with other enthusiasts.
Their time in Victoria was very special, and being retired, they were able to travel and return to Bermuda regularly.
They returned to Bermuda and re-established a home there in 1986. Wilf had been extremely active with the Lions Club in Bermuda, having been president of Hamilton Lions, and he rejoined upon returning.
He had meanwhile belonged to the Oak Bay Lions on Vancouver Island, serving two terms as president. For his lifelong dedication to Lionism he was presented with lifetime membership and the Melvin Jones Award for service.
The couple left Bermuda in 2000 for Virginia, so that Wilf could attend the University of Virginia Medical Center for radiation treatment. He was a silent "soldier" during that time and endured the many discomforts that such treatment inflicts, knowing that he was with his son and daughter-in-law, his grandchildren, and their children. He passed away in the bosom of his family, and in peace will rest in the Hall Family Cemetery at Elmwood, in Orange.
A service will be held at 2 p.m. Thursday at St. Thomas Episcopal Church, Orange, with the Rev. Scott Hennessey officiating.
In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to the Hospice of the Rapidan, P.O. Box 1715, Culpeper, Va. 22701.
Preddy Funeral Home of Orange is in charge of arrangements.
