Mr. Rus Hall of High River, Alberta passed away at the High River Hospital on May 14, 2020 at the age of 83 years. Rus is survived by his wife Marg of 52 years; son Brian; grandchildren Dean (Rachel) and LeighAnna; brother Doug (Lynne); sister Penny (Pat); sisters-in-law Audrey, Bonnie and Pat (Garth) as well as many nieces and nephews. Rus was predeceased by his brother Eldon. Rus was born to Eldon and Ursula Hall in Kelvington, SK. He was raised on a farm and attended grade 1 – 12 in Kelvington and upon graduation attended Lakehead College where he took Forest Technology. Rus spent many years working in the Lake of the Woods area transferring to Fish and Wildlife (trees grow too slow). Rus also had an opportunity to work as a project development officer off the James Bay coast. In 1967 he accepted a position in Fort Smith, NWT as Assistant Superintendent of Renewable Resources. Marg and Rus were married in Fort Smith in 1968 and later that year moved to Yellowknife, NWT. The outdoors was Rus’s favourite place where his passions included flying, fishing, hunting and canoeing. He owned and least 7 different aircraft with ski and float plane flying as his favourites. Marg and Rus retired to Cranbrook, BC in 1990. He was active in Air Search and Rescue as well as the flying club. Rus was a delegate on the Sahtu Renewable Resources Board with many trips back north to Norman Wells, NWT. In 2001 a move to High River, and thanks to rich black soil at Berger Farms, gardening filled his summers. Most summers he planted 300+ hills of potatoes. Rus donated many truck loads of vegetables to The Mustard Seed, Inn From The Cold, Nanton and High River Food Banks. Travel was part of Marg and Rus’s life. Recent trips included Antarctica and South Africa. Many winters were spent on Lake Havasu City, AZ with summers spent fishing pickerel on Lesser Slave Lake. As a friend said when told of his passing “damn – he was one of the good ones”.
