Hall, Harry H
June 27, 1941

Harry H. Hall Dies; Started His Parade Leadership in LeRoy The death of Harry H. Hall, which occurred in Bloomington last Monday, stirred memories of many LeRoyans concerning his birth and early life here in LeRoy. He was born in LeRoy Aug. 28, 1880, the son of Mr. and Mrs. John Hall. He spent his early life here, attended the LeRoy schools and wasa member of the LeRoy Christian Church. Althought for the past 15 years Bloomington persons knew him as a civic-minded individual who was behind almost every parade in theat city. LeRoyans remember him as a youngster taking part in home talent plays and entertainments and and twisting the town band and and parades here in LeRoy. He was united in marriage to a Miss Baldrick from Mackinaw and they were the patents of two children, a boy and a girl. His second marriage was to a Miss Daisy Hoover of Bloomington, who had five children by a previous marriage. The scond Mrs. Hall died May 5, 1935. He served overseas during World War 1 with the 307th tank corps, the same detachment commanded by General Douglas MacArthur. He was personally acquainted with the general and and only recently had correspondence with him concerning his son who was captured by the Japanese on Corregidor. Mr. Hall recently received a letter from his son. Only one brother of his immediate family is still living, a brother, Orson Hall of Deland. William Hall, a half brother is living at Gary, Ind. He is also survived by an uncle, Louis Hazel of near LeRoy; and the following cousins, Mrs. Clyde Lamont, Carl Kimler and Ben Kimler of LeRoy. The hundreds of persons who attended the funeral at the Beck Memorial Home in Bloomington Wednesday afternoon attest to the unselfish, tactful life he has lived for 61 years.

Soldiers Line Streets for Somber Procession Harry H. Hall was buried Wednesday afternoon. But not in the ordinary manner. Bloomington's great parade marshal was laid away as he probably would have wanted to be - after a fitting parade. Wednesday's parade was far more comber, though, than the many processions he had organized. Hundreds of persons gathered for it, as they had gathered for his other parades. But there was no tumult, no shouting - only sober faced friends quietly hearing the last rites of the man they had known so well. Actually the only resemblance to his other parades was the presence of the Bloomington band at Park Hill cemetery. The bandsmen played a funeral dirge as they marched to the graveside. Funeral services were held in the Beck Memorial Home at 2 p.m. The Rev. Ralph Carson, assisted by the Rev. Harold Martin preached the funeral sermon. Dr. Carson reviewed the many parades Harry Hall had taken part in, described the unselfish spirit of the man. An American flag and an American Legion flag were placed at the head and foot of the casket and an inscription in red, white and blue over the body read " Harry H. Hall - The Great Marshal's Last Parade." A quartet composed of J. Alfred Neu, Harold Dale Saurer, Mrs. Leila Mayer Long and Mrs. Roy Ramseyer sang. Mrs. T.O. Tifflin was organist. Soldiers Line Streets As the funeral procession wound from the memorial home to Park Hill cemetery, the entire personnel of the Midwest Motive Trades Institute stood at attention. When the Procession reached Park Hill Cemetery, it was led by Lloyd Eyer, S.C. Hibbens and Charles Kirkpatrick, followed by the Bloomington band. The Louis E. Davis post No. 56, American Legion firing squad, under the direction of Lee Lishka, sergeant at arms, fired a salute ove the grave as taps was played. Many Delegations Pallbearers were Joseph E. Burkey, Robert E. Hafley, Clarence hencel, I.H. Farian, Howard Bower and Harold Ramage, all members of Voiture 24, 40 and 8. Thirty other 40 and 8 members were honorary pall bearers and the entire Legion post attended in a body. Mrs. Mary Irish, his aunt with whom he had made his home, heard the funeral services over the radio from her bed in Brokaw Hospital. The 87 year old woman was sent there some time ago with a fractured hip. Delegations from all Bloomington-Normal luncheon clubs and the Alton Railroad were present and flags and McBarnes Memorial building, the city hall, the courthouse and the First National Bank were flown at half mast throught the afternoon.


Bloomington may have more parades, but they won't be the same - they'll lack something. They will lack the guiding hand of Harry H. Hall, who was found dead in his bed at 1011 Elder Street at 8 a.m. , Monday, (June 27, 1941) A heart attack is believed to be the cause of the death of the 61 year old man who made scores of parades click here. Hand in All Parade For 15 years he was behind almost every parade in Bloomington. He always had full charge of patriotic parades such as the annual Decoration day march. In addition he always assisted Lloyd Eyer and Charles S. Kirkpatrick in communtiy parades. For years, Mr. Eyer commented, Harry Hall did the lion's share and got little of the credit. He kept in the background, apparently content to play second fiddle. Mr. Hall earned his right to marshal patriotic parades. Served Under MacArthur He served overseas during World War 1 with the 307th tank corps, the same detachment commanded by Gen. Douglass MacArthur. Mr. Hall was personally axquainted with the famous MacArthur. The morning the armistice was signed the 307th was ready to drive forward. General MacArthur came up to Harry Hall, slapped him on the back and said " Well, Harry, you can go on home. The armistice has been signed. But you will have to come back 20 years from now because they didn't let us settle it this time." Mr. Hall recently had correspondence with the general. He wanted to find out how he could contact his son, who was captured by the Japanese on Corregidor in the Phillipines when the valiant American defense crumbled. Following General MacArthur's advice, Harry finally got in touch with his son ghrough the International Red Cross at Geneva Switzerland. He, recently received a letter from his boy. Know Little About Him Strangely enough, though Harry Hall was before the public eye a great deal, little is known of his private life. As one friend of his commented, " Harry was always the man who got you talking about yourself." The meager facts of his private life are that he was born August, 28, 1880 at LeRoy. His parents, Mr. and Mrs. John Hall preceded him in death. A brother, Harvey O. Hall of Deland survives; two sister, Mrs A. G. Forrest of Glenavon and Mrs. Elmer Phillips of Bloomington and a brother, Clarence were said to have preceded him in death. For 16 years he was an auto salesman at Laurence Rust's. He was married twice. By his first marriage, to a Miss Baldrich, from Mackinaw, he had two children, a boy and a girl. His first wife preceded him in death. His second marriage was sad to have been to a Miss Daisey Hoover, of Bloomington, who had five children by a previous marriage. the second Mrs. Hall died May 5, 1935. He went to school in LeRoy and was a member of the Christian Church there. While in Bloomington he attended the First Baptist he attended the First Church. Headed 40 and 8 He had been a member of the American Legion since 1921. He never missed a year paying the dues. He was chef de guerre of the 40 and 8. fun organization of the Legion, and was instrumental in construction of their locomotive. He served as senior vice county commander, junior vice commander and was always active in Louis E. Davis post affairs. Leland sherrill, adjutant of the post, said a good description of Harry Hall was that everyone talked about work which should be done and Harry just did it. And although he knew he had a bad heart he didn't slack off the hard work of making parades click. Funeral Services will be held at 2 p.m. Wednesday at Beck's.
