Don was predeceased by his first wife Evelyn, his parents Bruce and Radia Hall, and many brothers-in-law and sisters-in-law. Don was a long time educator in Kingston. He taught elementary school, high school and retired as principal at KCVI in 1986. Don was perennially curious. Don was a 33° member of the Scottish Rite of Freemasonry.

The Whig Standard, Kingston, ON, 2019-04-12 --- Donald Rowse Hall July 8, 1928 - April 10, 2019 It is with sadness that we announce the passing of Donald R. Hall. Don died at home with his family by his side. He leaves his wife Nellie Belluz, brother Gordon Hall (Nancy), stepchildren Frank (Jill), Paul (Susan) and Diana, grandchildren Zoe (Nghi), Alex (Kevin), Abrahm (Julie), Morgan (Wesley), Julian (Kendra) and Solana, and great-grandchildren Audrey and Max, nephews Vaughn (Tiffany), Matthew (Fiona), niece Sarah (Yarek) and many other nieces, nephews, brothers-in-law, sisters-in-law and cousins. Don was predeceased by his first wife Evelyn, his parents Bruce and Radia Hall, and many brothers-in-law and sisters-in-law. Don was born in Bath, Ontario. The example that his parents and grandmother set for him during the hardships of the depression shaped his character as a true gentleman. He was a loving and caring family man. Don was a hard worker yet extremely modest about his many accomplishments. He was a stalwart friend, cultivated deep connections with his community, and generously shared his time, attention and resources with family, friends, and those less fortunate than himself through many charitable acts and regular donations. Don met Evelyn Schofield when they were teachers in Germany. Theirs was a happy marriage. They enjoyed many annual trips to Nova Scotia to visit with the Schofield clan who whole-heartedly welcomed Don. Don was a widower when he met Nellie. They fell deeply in love and remained that way for their entire 28-year union. He quickly became a well-loved member of the Belluz clan. Don enjoyed spending time with all his family and was quick to share a smile, a story, and a compliment. He delighted in watching each generation grow and mature and visiting with his precious great-grandchildren and great-nieces Amy and Maggie. He was a kid at heart, going on amusement park rides with the kids into his eighties. Don was a 33rd degree member of the Scottish Rite of Freemasonry. He served in various leadership roles in Queen's Lodge in Kingston. His vocation was that of educator. Don quietly dedicated his life to helping young people find their path - whether they were students in his charge, family members, friends or neighbours. Don was profoundly touched to be valued as a mentor by his nephews Matthew Hall and Vaughn MacLellan. Don was perennially curious. He was a graduate of Queens University and lifelong supporter of Queens and Acadia. In later years, he and Nellie travelled extensively and Don enjoyed researching and exploring the many countries they visited. His curiosity also manifested a genuine interest in others. He could, and did, strike up a conversation with anyone who crossed his path, whether he spoke their language or not. He was keen to learn about people and listen to their stories. As a result, he was blessed with many rich friendships. Don had many passions including dogs (especially his beloved border collies Cyd and Angie), steam trains, live music, theatre, military history, stamp and coin collecting, hunting and marksmanship to name a few. A heartfelt thank you to Dr. Perry Meyer, Dr. Ross Allega, Joanne Norwood, Veronica Dummer, and Mark Janusiak who formed the core of a large team of kind and dedicated people that enabled Don to have an active and fulfilling life despite the complications of diabetes that he endured in his later years. Visitation to be held at Dodsworth & Brown Funeral Home at 378 Wilson St E, Ancaster on Friday April 12 from 5-9pm and Saturday April 13 from 10-11am. Funeral Service at the Funeral Home on Saturday April 13 at 11 a.m. followed by a reception to be held at St. Ann's Parish Hall.
