Celebration of life for Dave Hall will be held Saturday, March 5

Gathering organized by Hall’s family will take place at the new Timms Community Centre

A celebration of life for City of Langley Councillor Dave Hall will be held on Saturday, March 5 at the new Timms Community Centre from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m.

Members of the public are invited to attend the event organized by the Hall family.

Hall passed away on Jan. 4 at the age of 63, after stepping down as councillor late last year due to illness.

Serving on a number of committees, Hall was a champion of recreation in the City and an advocate for the new Timms centre.

A resident of the City for more than 30 years, Hall served seven years as City councillor following nine years as a trustee in the Langley school district.

A memorial statement released by the City described Hall as a “dedicated, passionate and thought-provoking man.”

Hall was remembered as a well-rounded fitness and sports enthusiast who enjoyed his Al Anderson morning swim and his daily cycling routine.

In lieu of flowers, the Hall family has requested donations to organizations that support cancer research, such as the Terry Fox Foundation or the BC Cancer Foundation.
