So very sorry to hear of Hal’s passing. We have such good memories of Hal from married student housing at the University of Washington, to Pullman and WSU, to Hal and Ardell’s annual visits to Pullman after retirement. We send our sincere condolences to Ardell and family. Please know that we are thinking of you and send our love.

Dear Mike and family,
I read about your dear father in today’s Daily News. It was so nice to learn things about your Dad that I did not know as a classmate of yours growing up. What I knew of you Dad was only represented through seeing your commitment to others and to activities that returned so much value to the community.
We are sending you all our love and thoughts in this time of loss, knowing that you carry on your father’s values , celebrating his legacy every day.

We are greatly saddened by the passing of my cousin Hal. I remember him as a young teenager on our visits to Grandma & Grandpa Kerr. He was a good and honorable man.

Hal was a finance professor I had the pleasure of working with in my early days at WSU. I always respected his professionalism and dignity he gave to his students and staff. He was a wonderful man who I thought very highly of.
My condolences to his family.

I am sorry for your loss. Hal seemed like a great person. My name is Doug Kerr and I noticed in the obituary that he did extensive research and wrote a book on the Kerr clan. I’ve been to Scotland to learn about the Kerr’s, but I would love to get a copy of Hal’s book if possible. If someone can let me know if this is possible, that would be great. I can be reached by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at 801-787-7544.
