Roger Lee Hall was born Dec. 16, 1944, in a home on the family farm near Granada, Minn., the son of Wilbur Wendell and Clara Emma (Measor) Hall. Roger received his education attending school in Granada and graduated from Granada High School. Following his graduation, he attended Dunwoody College of Technology and later enlisted with the U.S. Army, where he served proudly until receiving his honorable discharge.
On Oct. 15, 1965, Roger was united in marriage to Harriet Danielson in Northrop, Minn. Together, the couple made their home on a farm near Northrop and were blessed with two children, Jeffrey and Steven.
Roger loved living the life of a farmer. In his younger years, he found a passion for welding and worked for many years at Standard Welding. He then began working for Stokely’s, where he harvested sweet corn, earning the nickname “Sweet Corn King.” Roger never lost his love for raising crops and looked forward to change of the seasons and the work that came with it.
In his youth, Roger looked forward to throwing his leg over his motorcycle and cruising the countryside on road trips with the Traveler’s Motorcycle Club. In his later years, Roger looked forward to heading to warmer weather in the winter, following the open road on trips to the South. He treasured spending time with family and friends especially “Spud” and his coffee buddies as they met at Perkins to solve the world’s problems over a warm cup of coffee.
Roger was a member of Grace Lutheran Church in Fairmont, Lee C. Prentice American Legion Post 36, and was a proud member of the Iron Workers Union.
Left to cherish his memory are his sons, Jeffrey L. Hall, and Steven J. Hall; granddaughter, Makayla L. Hall “Spud”; stepgrandchildren, Kammy (Matt) Sadler, and Kasey Adams-Urban; brother, Donald Hall; sister-in-law, Patricia Hall; niece, Heather (David) Wiederhoeft; nephew, Ryan (Jodi) Hall; and many other extended family and friends.
