Albert A. Hall of Pueblo, Colo., died on July 28, 2012. He was the adoring husband of 72 years to Ruth, a strict but fair and loving father to Kathie (Dennison) and Connie (Skoglund) and an extravagant, fun, ideal spoiler of five grandkids and four great-grandkids. He was born on August 7, 1916, in Avondale, Colo. He worked on his father's sugar beet farm, and later, worked for the CF&I, had his own real estate company, and his own insurance company. He was a champion gardener, hunted from horseback, and fished every opportunity he got. He loved Blue Mesa, Rocky Ford Cantaloupes, Olathe sweet corn, giving his friends a hard time and our grandmother. He learned to train hunting dogs from reading a book, taught his grandkids how to fish, hunt and ride horses. He water skied in cut-off jeans. He could manage most household and automotive emergencies as long as he had baling wire. He drove a hard bargain. We will miss the sincere interest he took in our lives, his big and easy laugh, his honesty and kindness. His tomatoes. Survived by his wife, Ruth; daughters, Kathie (Gary) Dennison and Connie Skoglund; grandchildren, Dawn (Tom Plant) Dennison, Doug (Veronica) Dennison, Jon Dennison, Todd (Tracie) Skoglund, Tonya (Taj) Yelton; great-grandchildren, Taylor, Erika, Ryan and Iain; sister, Betty Johnson; and numerous nieces and nephews. At his request, a private memorial service will be held at a later date. Donations may be made to the Joni Fair Hospice House, 1207 Pueblo Blvd. Way, Pueblo, CO 81005 or a charity of your choice.

  1. To Mr. Halls family. Sincere sympathy from our hearts to yours. Didn’t get to know your Mom when they moved in next door to us, but your Dad and Penny became beloved neighbors. We often met and visited while getting our mail. Loved those brief moments and even more your Dad’s laugh. We shall miss his phone calls too. My goodness our cats will miss harrassing Penny. These beautiful parents are so hard to lose but God’s plan for all of us to be together again someday gives us comfort and hope you all too. Love to you, Bill and Judy Thomas

  2. Well, where should I begin, my great Uncle Albert was a great man, I was so happy when I heard that he and Aunt Ruthy would be moving from Canyon City to Pueblo. I was even happier when after they moved to Pueblo I found out that they were just up the road from us. I would always go and see them on the holidays and when ever my aunt was in town. I will always miss him and and life will never be the same without him.

    I love you Uncle Albert and always will. 🙁
