Stanley James Hall, late of West Valley City, Utah, passed away on February 4, 2022, at Jordan Valley Medical Center.
Stanley was born on January 4, 1965, in Walla Walla, Washington, and in 1983 graduated from Buena Park High School in California, where his favorite subject was health. As a child, Stanley liked speed skating at the Buena Park Rollertorium, and his enthusiasm for racing followed him into adulthood. A car enthusiast with a passion for race cars, Stanley spent many years working as a mechanic in Southern California, where he specialized in rebuilding differentials and transmissions. Later, he changed careers and worked as a chef in various resorts in California and Las Vegas before retiring to Utah.
The life of any party he was at, Stanley was a man of many talents and interests. If he wasn’t working on a car, you could find him partying, or behind the stove. He enjoyed rocking out to Lynyrd Skynyrd’s “Free Bird” while making enough food to feed an army. Stanley was also a devoted father who couldn’t have been prouder of his children.
Stanley is survived by his children, Jason J. Hall, Christina D. (Brandon) Flores, and Kevin Snow; his three grandchildren; his brother, Carl R. Hall; and his sister, Bertha M. Dinwoody. Stanley was preceded in death by his parents, Jimmy R. and Dorothy M. Hall, and his brother, Robert A. Hall. A service for Stanley will be held on February 10 at 11am at Clearfield Utah North Stake, 151 North 1000 West in Clearfield, internment to follow in Brigham City, Utah. In lieu of flowers, the family asks for charitable donations to be made to a charity of your choice in Stanley's name.
