So very sorry to hear of Al's passing. I've known Al Hall since I was a 12 year old Scout trying to pass my First Aid and Firemanship merit badges at Station 9 , over 45 years ago. As an adult Scouter since then, I've been fortunate enough to know Al from many years of attendance at Camp Cahalot and especially Scout Catholic Retreats. He was a mentor and friend to many young men who , because of men like him, have continued to give back to Scouting for many years as adults. In this way, he will never be gone.
Decorated veteran...faithful Catholic and a GREAT Scout. Proud to have known him.

I am sorry for your loss. Serving often with Al on many scouting functions you can be assured that he has helped many scout and scouters how will miss his advice
and council.
