Lawrence ‘Larry’ Hall


Lawrence “Larry” Hall, 81, of West Bend, passed away peacefully on Saturday, Sept. 21, 2019, at Samaritan Nursing Home in West Bend.

He was born on Oct. 29, 1937, to the late Elmer and Lorraine (nee Fouts) Hall in Milwaukee.

Larry graduated from Cedarburg High School, where he met his high school sweetheart, Valerie Mason. On May 9, 1959, they were united in marriage and started their family.

Larry enjoyed his snowmobiles, working on vintage cars, boats and anything with a motor. His all-time passion was hunting and fishing. If Larry didn’t have a wrench or tool in hand, it was a fishing rod or gun.

He spent years going to Wyoming to hunt, and spent weekends on Lake Michigan fishing. Whatever John Gillespie thought he knew about fishing, Larry already knew. Larry shared his love of hunting and

fishing with family and friends, whether they enjoyed it or not.

He will be missed by all who knew him.

Those Larry leaves behind to cherish his memory include his three children, Linda Preschat, Laurie (Brian) Fuller and John (Michelle) Hall; five grandchildren, Kassy (Richard) Loberger, Kyle (Jolene) Karnitz,

Alisha Hall, Christian Hall and Brandon Fuller; three great-grandchildren, Lucas, Liam, and Christoph; his brother Jeffery Hall; many other relatives; and friends.

In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by his wife Valerie Hall; a son, Allen; his brother, William “Billy” Hall; and a sister, Sharon Trostel.

The family will greet relatives and friends at Myrhum Patten Miller & Kietzer Funeral Home, 1315 W. Washington St., West Bend, on Sunday, Sept. 29, 2019, from 1 until 4 p.m., with a short service in remembrance of Larry to immediately follow.

There will be a small lunch provided afterwards for those who wish to stay and talk for a short while.

Myrhum Patten Miller & Kietzer Funeral Homes have been entrusted with Larry’s arrangements.
