Jim was born on October 16, 1934 in Arco, Idaho to Gerald and Weltha Hall. When he was young, his father told him “Son, one thing you need to remember: ‘was gonna’ don’t get it done,” and Jim lived his life by that motto. He served in the U.S. Army with the 65th Combat Engineer Battalion of the 25th Infantry Division as a radio operator. Jim was a circuit rodeo cowboy for a number of years. He was a heavy equipment operator, mechanic and powder man for road construction. In 1975, Jim and Steve Bradley founded Shasta Forest Products. With their hard work, the business has grown and flourished through the years. Jim enjoyed gardening, shooting, fishing and being outside. He was a member of the Elks Lodge #1980 and the Masonic Lodge.

Jim is survived by five children, Bill Hall (Kim), Barbara Johnson, Nancy Johnson, Sabrina Ochoa and Delbert Hall (Lori), nine grandchildren and 16 great grandchildren.

No services are scheduled. Jim will be inurned at Evergreen Cemetery next to his wife, Norma and his youngest son, Michael James. Online condolences may be made at www.girdnerfuneralchapel.com
