Hal was born in Ogden, Utah to Hal and Lorene LaFleur. He was raised in Ogden, attending Washington Terrace Elementary, T.H. Bell Jr. High, and graduated from Bonneville High School, Class of 1973. Hal went on to receive a Bachelor's Degree in Accounting from Weber State University.
Hal married Jayne Bateman on Friday, June 13, 1975 in the Logan Temple. They resided in both Ogden, Utah, and St. Paul, Minnesota; retiring to Utah. During his career he worked for the Air Force Audit Agency, and NCUA. He ended his career doing what he loved most, trading stocks.
Hal enjoyed hunting for deals at Smith's, working in his yard and caring for animals. His hobbies included golf, hunting and fishing. He was an exceptional husband, father, brother, friend and neighbor. Hal was quietly generous with his time, talents and money, always helping those in need. Hal loved his kids and grandkids, and truly enjoyed swimming, puzzles, playing games, and especially, teaching Yahtzee strategy. Going on adventures with his sisters and their husbands was always a highlight.
Hal is survived by his wife, Jayne; his three children, Sarah (Nate) Wickman, Hal (Katie) LaFleur, and Lizzie (Jason) Jensen; sisters, Debbie (Brian) Peterson, Pam (Jim) Smith, and Cynthia (Timothy) Rasmussen. Hal also leaves behind his nine beloved grandchildren, Hailey, Sophia, AJ, Ike, Ben, Scarlett, Blaine, Henry, and Romy.
