UPDATE from Alan Landros ('70):

I received details this morning from our classmate, Steve Hall, regarding the passing of his father, Regnal Hall. Mr. Hall was always one of the top one or two of our favorite teachers at BHS where he taught Music, Choir, Vocals for many, many years. Some of you may have seen this news on FaceBook in the last day or so. The information was posted on FB last Friday afternoon.

Mr. Regnal Hall passed away on Saturday, November 27, 2010, after a lengthy illness of several years. He was 83. He was born December 8, 1926. Tomorrow would have been his 84th birthday. His wife, Barbara Hall, passed away in August 2007. Here is the information for the Memorial Service for Regnal Hall:

Saturday, January 15, 2011
11:00 A. M.
St. Mark's Episcopal Church, Glendale
(corner of north Brand Blvd. and Doran St.)

There is also a 'Memorial Page' on FaceBook, with RSVP for the service. Also, friends/former students may wish to leave a message for Steve, Mark, and Leslie, Regnal's three children. Here is link:!/ In search box at top of page put in "Memorial Service for Regnal Hall". When that comes up click on "Memorial Service for Regnal Hall" and all the details will show, along with place to RSVP.

Steve Hall came from his home in McMinnville, Oregon this past June for our Class of '70 40th reunion weekend. Steve and I first met in the same second grade class at Thomas Jefferson in 1959. Mark Hall is in the BHS '71 class, and his wife Janie Porco Hall is in the '73 class. Steve and Mark's sister, Leslie Hall Viera, is from a later 1970's BHS class.
