Manley "Jim" Hall
March 16, 1935 – March 16, 2020
Manley "Jim" Hall came into this world on March 16, 1935 and left it the same day, 85 years later. He was a beloved son, husband, father, brother, and grandfather.
He is survived by his wife, Elizabeth "Betty"; his children, Jim and Cathy; and his five grandsons as well as daughter-in-law, Alice, and son-in-law, Nick. Betty and Jim were devoted to each other and celebrated their 64th wedding anniversary on February 18, 2020.
Jim was born and raised in Algonac, Michigan. He served in the U.S. Army in Korea. After the army, he worked at Vandenburg Air Force Base in California on the Apollo lunar module. He raised his family in North Aurora, Illinois where he began the electronics program at Waubonsee Community College. He was also an active member of the North Aurora Lions Club.
After 10 years of teaching, he entered the emerging field of computer technology which brought him to Austin, Texas in 1985. He was an active member of Saint Albert The Great Church in North Austin and its "Great Club". He could often be found at Cafe Java with his wife and "Great Club" friends enjoying his favorite breakfast of fried eggs and bacon and a bottomless coffee cup.
He loved his childhood waterfront home in Algonac, listening to music, and spending time with his family. He was a good friend who will be missed by all who knew him.

Betty, Jim, Cathy & family:
Our hearts are heavy and filled with fond memories from my childhood. The Christmas Day visits, the summer picnics on the porch, fishing off the sea wall or all of the “vacations” we took watching the slide shows of places visited. Your last visit with us in Algonac meant so much to us and we’ll treasure it always. Rest In Peace sweet cousin.....until we meet again in Paradise!

Betty, Cathy, & Jim,
The condolences of the entire Meyers family go out to you all. These last few days, in particular, we've all thought back to some of our own special memories of Jimmy. For me, I so appreciate that I had a chance to visit Jimmy in his "digs" just a few years ago; I've thought fondly of being able to get together during your visits out to California; and, I'll never forget the hospitality and warmth you all showed when Joy & I visited Austin (way back when I was working in the Shreveport area). In times of sadness, our memories are a precious gift...and so I thought you might appreciate this picture my dad took long ago.
With heartfelt sympathy,
John, Barb, Jenna, Margot & Luke (and the rest of the Meyers gang)

All of us here at Cafe Java offer our deepest sympathy for the loss of Jim. Every Sunday we looked forward to the Club coming in for their Javas. I am sure Jim is in a good place now maybe even having his favorite breakfast the Java special. Then of coarse all the birthdays and anniversaries that were celebrated there. Rest in Peace,Jim
