He passed away Monday, November 14, 2005, in Colorado Springs, Colorado, of colon cancer. Hal attended school in Lewiston and graduated from North Cache High School in Richmond, Utah. He graduated from Utah State University with a degree in Secondary Education and taught school in Lyman, Wyoming, for four years. In 1968-69 Hal received a Masters Degree and then an Education Specialist Degree from Indiana University in Bloomington, Indiana. Hal was Assistant Professor of Education at the University of Maine at Portland-Gorham and also Assistant Professor of Audiovisual Education at the University of Alberta, Edmonton, Canada for three summers.
