Hall, William

William Hall, A Firm But Fair Leader, Hospital Administrator
William Hall was tough, but his office – and home- also rang with laughter. Whether earning Legion of Merit awards in World War II and Vietnam, or running hospitals and boards in civilian life, he expected perfection. “But once after we kids were scared by the movie “Them,” about giant ants,” said his daughter, Annette Hall of Bellevue, “he put on a gas mask and sneaked in the room, looking kind of like a giant ant!” Mr. Hall, a retired Army Colonel, died Saturday. He was 80. Longtime friend, John Cannon, a retired Army Lieutenant Colonel, said “firm-fair,” describes Mr. Hall. “He mentored me in the service since 1948 and was on my case more than anybody,” Cannon said. “When he helped develop Odessa Brown Children’s Clinic in the early 1970’s, he hired me as first administrator, so he was my boss again. “He demanded I be good, as good as he was. You knew you’d get a fair shake, but it could be a hard shake, so you knew you’d better be right.” Born in Pratt City, Ala, to a coal mining family, Mr. Hall served in the Civilian Conservation Corps. During World War II he joined the Army and went to France. He also served in Korea and Vietnam, perfecting med-evac techniques. After Korea, he graduated from University of Indiana Law School, then attended Baylor University. In 1958 he earned a degree in hospital administration and became administrator at Madigan Army Hospital.
When the Colonel drove to work, observers quipped, “Here comes Col. Hall, wearing his Volkswagon.” The 6 foot, 4 inch administrator, who could lift men nearly his size off the ground with a single hug, didn’t worry about image. Volkswagons ran well and saved you money. He brought that attitude to administration, first at Madigan until his retirement in 1968, then at United Way, then at Children’s Hospital and Medical Center, from which he retired in 1984. He took the same approach to serving on the boards of King County Senior and other groups, “He was just one of my favorite people,” said Truman Katz, CEO at Children’s/ “He was instrumental in managing the entire construction project at Children’s in the 1970’s. “I stayed close to him after he retired in 1984, because he was just so tremendous. I will miss him.” Mr. Hall was a deacon at Mount Zion Baptist Church. He also achieved the rank of 33rd degree Master and was a Past Master of ABIFF Lodge No. 37, of the black Masons, or the Prince Hall affiliation,” said his daughter. “He was constantly going, “said his daughter. “It was always my impression people didn’t know what to do without him. Yet I could always call home for advice, and if I was going out to a party, he always said how pretty I looked.” Other survivors include his wife, Allie Summers Hall of Bellevue; children, Patricia Hall Clark, Bellevue; William Hall, Jr., Seattle; Juanita Marie Hall, San Francisco; John David Hall and his wife, Sheri, Bellingham; Lisa Hall Coleman and her husband, Brian, Kelowna, B. C.; and daughter-in-law, Julie Hall, wife of son Philip, Tacoma, who died in February; eight grandchildren and three brothers. A Rose Croix ceremony is scheduled at 7 p.m. today in Southwest Mortuary. Services are at 3 p.m. tomorrow in Mount Zion Baptist Church. Remembrances may be sent to Children’s Hospital & Medical Center, Harborview Medical Center, or Odessa Brown Clinic.

Hatcher, Mrs. Elizabeth

Died - In New Lexington, May 8, 1866, Mrs. Elizabeth Hatcher, wife of Isaiah Hatcher, and daughter of Samuel and Mary Gordon, was born January 13th, 1841. As a child at home she was ever happy and affectionate in her disposition. Life to her was sunshine that brought real joy. As an associate she was loved by all who knew her. Her cheerful voice and kind smile, always gave cheer to the circle where she moved. She became a member of the M. E. church in Somerset and rejoiced in the pardon of her sins when twelve years old. She seemed to carry with her always a consciousness that she was a child of God; and that confidence in him made her cheerful, and kept her above despondency. She was married to Mr. Hatcher, May 17th, 1860. As a wife she was ever ready to make home happy and beloved, to this end, with affectionate devotion. The winter succeeding her marriage, she was severely afflicted with Inflammatory Rheumatism, which left her with heart disease, the precise nature of which was never known. For more than five years she bore this terrible suffering without a murmur. She trusted in God and felt that "He doeth all things well." Her death scene was one of great peace and of christian triumph. She longed to be at rest. Though she loved her friends, husband and infant child much, yet she loved Jesus and cheerfully gave up earth to follow where he called. Her remains were followed to the grave by a large and sympathetic gathering of people. A discourse was preached by Rev. R. W. Manly, her former pastor, from Phil. I.21, "To die is gain."

Mother of B&O Engineer Heffley this City Dies at Somerset. The death of Mrs. Lucy Heffley, whose funeral at Holy Trinity occurred on Saturday last, becomes our sad office of notice. She was the mother of twelve children, nine of whom survive her. These are George, James, Edward and Mark of Elkhorn, Nebraska, Albert of Newark, William of Junction City, with John, Adam and Elizabeth at the old homestead. She was the beloved and honored wife of Mr. George Heffley one of the substantial center posts of this community. Her age was near the figure 70, and last June marked her golden wedding day to her stricken and honored husband. The funeral procession from her home four miles west of here was a long, a sad and emphatic tribute to the virtues of one who was born, reared and educated and whose life finally ended within the boundaries of one mile square or nearly so. She was the sister of Mr. Mark Gordon of this county, and George Gordon, of Arcola, Ill, and of Mrs. David Hewitt of this town. In her death relatives, friends and community have lost a bright and worthy exempler (sic) of all the virtues which adorn, endear and dignify female character and the family circle.

Hogle, John

Death of Mr. John Hogle-Mr. John Hogle died at his residence on Walnut Street, Wednesday morning March 7th. He was a native of this county, having been born in Bethlehem Township November 7, 1816. During the last ten years he had been a resident of our city, where by his genial nature and generous hospitality, he won a large circle of friends. He was a man of decidedly patriotic spirit, and possessed a remarkable perception of right. Although he had reached the allotted time of the Psalmist, and added seven years more, he retained a youthful vigor of mind which was refreshing to all who conversed with him, being easily approached and greatly admired by all young people with whom he came in contact. He was a lover of beautiful things in nature and art. If one of his grandchildren made a pretty thing the first pleasure was to show it to “grand-pa,” who always had a word of admiration and encouragement. He was a devoted Christian, and the church will miss his voice in prayer and song. His trust was firm and beautiful to the last.  He leaves a wife and four daughters: Mrs. William Sturgeon of Perry County, Ohio; Mrs. J. A. Finlay of Keene and Mrs. I. J. Baker and Mrs. James B. R. Johnson of this city. His children, and those who knew him best, will ever cherish his memory as a sweet incense. Funeral services conducted by Rev. R. B. Pope of this city, assisted by Rev. John I. Wilson of Cambridge, Ohio, will be held at the late home of the deceased at 1:30 this afternoon, following which interment will be made in Oak Ridge Cemetery.

Holcomb, Anna S. Flannigan

"Anna S. Flannigan Holcomb was born in Pennsylvania on May 28, 1829, and died at her home near Moxahala, Nov. 15, 1902, aged 73 years, 5 months and 17 days.  On June 13, 1853, she was united in marriage to John B. Holcomb.  To this union ten children were given--seven sons and three daughters--two of whom, one son and a daughter, preceded her to her heavenly home.  In 1855 she united with the Oakfield Baptist church, in which she remained a faithful and devoted christian until she was called to her eternal home.  She loved the church and was a faithful attendant upon the Sabbath school and delighted in its progress.  Her life was one of devotion to her family and friends and those who were near and dear to her.  She manifested a spirit of christian charity and was kind and obliging to all.  She truly lived a life of Faith, Hope and Charity."

Holcomb, Ed.

Ed. Holcomb, a well known character of Aberdeen has been missing since Saturday evening, and his friends have become uneasy.  As Mr. Holcomb was known not to be in good health, it is feared he had wandered off, and possibly perished.  He was last traced to Hoquiam, and from there near Grays Harbor City last Sunday morning, and, may, in an aberated state of mind, be still wandering northward.

Holcomb, Edgar

The body of Edgar Holcomb, whose disappearance was noted in the last issue of the Herald was discovered by a searching party Thursday, lying in the brush on the west side of the Humptulips river about two miles from the railroad bridge crossing that stream.  The body was without hat, coat or shoes and its condition clearly showed that the unfortunate man perished from exposure incurred while under a temporary abberation of mind.  Mr. Holcomb was a member of the Improved Order of Red Men and this society organized searching parties as soon as his disapperrance was noted.  These parties were in the field almost constantly since last Tuesday, and avoided no effort to trace their brother Red Man.  He was heard of on Sunday as having been at Grays Harbor City and was traced from there along the new line of railroad, towards the Humptulips river.  He had been seen by several people walking on the railroad track westward.  In this manner he was traced to the railroad crossing of that river, where his tracks disappeared.  The searching party then concluded he had gone up the river and divided into two parties, one going up each bank of the stream.  The party following the west bank of the river discovered the body about two miles from the bridge.  The condition of the remains indicated beyond a doubt that death was due to exposure.  The body was brought to Aberdeen, arriving here about one o'clock Friday morning, and taken to the undertaking parlors of Beardsley Bros., from whence the funeral took place at three o'clock yesterday afternoon, under the auspices of Quinalt Tribe No. 14, Improved Order of Red Men, of which organization the deceased was a past officer and worthy member.  Mr. Holcomb, at the time of his death, was about 36 years of age and had resided in Aberdeen for the past four years.  His relatives lived in Ohio, and in his pocketbook was found the following obituary of his mother, taken from an Ohio paper:  (See Anna S. Flannigan Holcomb obituary above.)

Wayne Av. Boy Drowns

A Wayne avenue boy drowned Monday afternoon when he waded off a coffer dam into 15 feet of water in the Muskingum River 200 yards below the Sixth Street Bridge.  Samuel Hoops, 15, son of Francis and Lorena Hoops of 334 Wayne avenue, was lost 60 feet from shore as two wading companions and an older brother on the bank watched.  Police said the youngster, who would have been a junior this fall at Zanesville High School was unable to swim.  Young Hoops and his two teen-age companions. John Fitch of 452 Wayne avenue and Mike Sayre of 426 Wayne avenue, were wading in swimming trunks from a sandbar located a few feet from the west bank of the Muskingum River.  Hoops was leading the way as the three boys waded a short distance to the dam which they began to walk across.  Several inches of water courses over the dirt dam which was built last year in connection with construction of trans-river sewer lines.  About 60 feet from the river bank Hoops stepped off into a scooped-out hole, according to Lt. Milton Mick of the police department.  He came up once and grabbed for Fitch's neck but his hands slipped away as he went under for the final time. His older brother, William, 18, who had remained on the bank, then ran for help.  Search operations for the body were still being carried out late Monday night.  The drowning, the first in Muskingum this year occurred about 3 p.m. as the boys attempted to seek relief from the 85-degree heat.  The grief-stricken parents were still at the scene of the search operations during the night.  The victim was a Times Recorder newspaper boy.  Taking part in the search for the body were Zanesville police, members of the Sea Eagles skin-diving unit, the Coast Guard Auxiliary, the Crooksville Civil Defense unit which provided floodlights, and emergency units from Roseville, the city fire department and the sheriff's department.

Hoy, William

In Memoriam -  William Hoy was born in Perry County, Ohio, on December 19, 1841 and died at his home near Cassoday, Kansas, on July 24th, 1912, aged 70 years, 7 months and 5 days. On September 9, 1869 he married Miss Mary Ann Davison in Perry County, Ohio, and to this union eight children were born.  Four of these preceded him to the other world. The deceased leaves a wife, one son, three daughters, and fourteen grandchildren to mourn his departure.  The name of the children being Frank Hoy and Mrs. Daisy Robinson, living west of Cassoday, Mrs. Etta Goodnight of Englewood, Kansas and Mrs. Ethel Wright, of Aroyo, Colorado.  The three former were at his bedside when the summons came for his spirit to take its flight; the latter named, Mrs. Wright, not being able to attend his last illness.  In the year 1877 the deceased moved with his family to the state of Kansas and in the year 1888 he settled on the place where he resided until his death.  The deceased was a devoted husband and a kind and indulgent father; to his friends the soul of fellowship.  But the greatest of all he was a man.  And as a man it is that those who knew him best most love to contemplate him.  He believed in the fatherhood of God and the brotherhood of man.  He believed that the man who scatters flowers in the pathway of his fellowmen, who the sunshine of human sympathy and human happiness, is following in the footsteps of his Master.  His last words were expressive of peace in God and a willingness to depart and be at rest with Him.  His cheerful, helpful life; his devotion to his wife and family and kindness to everybody will long linger as a fragrant memory in the home which his presence brightened and which death has now darkened.  Though he is gone his record has been made and will remain with us as a lasting treasure.  His life was gentle, but like the still waters it was deep.  In his heart of hearts he carried those he loved and his hand was never weary, his step never failed in caring for and ministering to those who were in any way dependent upon him.  The funeral services were held at the family home on Thursday morning at 10:00 o'clock a. m., Rev. Jackson of the M. E. church officiating and paying a beautiful tribute to the memory of the deceased.  At the close of the services an unusual long procession followed the funeral car to the silent city.  At the open grave we say "farewell."  May God's purest angels guard his slumbers.
