August 21, 1958 – March 3, 2018
Mr. Kurt Hall, 59, of Moody, TX, passed away Saturday, March 3, 2018.
Kurt was born August 21, 1958, to William M. and Sylvia G. (O’Dell) Hall in Spokane, Washington. Although he knew many homes, his most treasured times growing up were spent in England, where his mother grew up and on the family ranch in Oklahoma. After graduating from High School Kurt enlisted and served in the United States Navy. He served in the Navy from 1976-1981, during the Cold War. Although his time in the Navy was only 4 years, he served in 58 countries and gained some of his favorite memories. Some of his notable achievements include being the first enlisted sailor to become a surface warfare specialist, The Navy Achievement Medal, and achieving the rank of Petty Officer. He always had a Navy story ready for anybody who would listen.
On April 9, 1983, Kurt married the love of his life, Diana (Guynes) Hall. The two celebrated just short of 35 happy years of marriage together. Kurt and Diana’s life was nothing less than adventurous and became complete on May 17, 1995, when their precious son Kyle Anthony Hall was born; Kurt’s Greatest pride and joy.
Kurt owned and operated Water Management Specialist. Kurt was very successful in the business as an irrigation consultant. As such, Kurt worked with companies throughout the United States. Although he worked hard, Kurt made time for his family and many hobbies. These hobbies included leatherwork and woodworking, skills he learned from his father and boating and travel. Kurt seldom met a stranger and could talk to anyone. He was a ready talker and loved to tease folks. Kurt was especially capable at teasing and pestering family. He loved a good joke or a good practical joke. However, Kurt was also a very generous soul and always willing to help a friend in need. He traveled everywhere possible, making memories with his family. He never turned down a good game of spades. Kurt served as a Boy Scout leader for Pack 425 for 10 years. He encouraged and helped multiple boys to broaden and expand their horizons. With Kurt’s encouragement, and many times with Kurt taking the lead, the boys were willing to try many new adventures. Kurt was also the Moody Library’s Santa for many years. He enjoyed talking to the children and joining them in the magic of the season.
Kurt is preceded in death by his parents, William and Sylvia Hall.

I was just a women who was was encouraged to go take a class. I did and I was lucky to get Kurt. I ended up staying with Kurt & Diana. I would go with him to the classes and he had me working helping with the men that was just like me. When we would go eat for lunch he and I would get in the big CAR. We liked to talk about how to have fun going to n from clase. His Cadalic was hugh and he was a manic on the road but he was always careful and I would be screaming at him to STOP..he never did. I liked to keep my hair fixed however. Kurt would roll down all the windows..and my hair was always horrible afterwords. I alway had a WORD to him to grow up. He never did.
He was a very smart man, loved his family, liked everything and everyone. I was amazed by the thing he could do.
I will miss him, our conversations, his weird ways that was always amazing. He was a wonderful man, teacher, husband and his pride of joys his wife and son.
Heaven...get ready for him..as he's a hand full.

Diana & Kyle-
I am so sorry to hear about your loss of husband and father. I have many memories of Kurt since you were my neighbor and friend for so many years.
One comical thing that comes to mind is that Kurt was standing and holding my daughter in his arms. He was also holding a cup of coffee and she proceeded to dunk her entire fist into the cup. Fortunately it was not too hot.
Love and hugs,
