Rev. Richard H. Hall

The Rev. Cn. Dr. Richard H. Hall of Brunswick returned to God on April 14, 2019, surrounded by the love of his immediate family: Ellen, his wife of 52 years, and their three adult children, Jim, Matt, and Sarah.

Dick was a devoted son to Louise and Earl, brother to Dave and Doug, their wives Judy and Arlene, uncle to Julie, Maureen, Sue and Andrea, father-in-law to Sarah, Patrick and Sarah, and fun-loving Papa to Nate, Drew, Henry and Charlie.

Dick was beloved as Episcopal priest of St. John’s in Bangor, St. Philip's in Wiscasset, and more recently, active in his retirement at St. Paul's in Brunswick. Dick's second calling was a lifelong commitment to healing through a blend of Jungian and Pastoral Counseling. Other favorite hats Dick wore included fire fighter, town moderator, military policeman, pilot, musician, poet, teacher, birdwatcher, photographer, knitter, fisherman and avid golfer. He loved the lakes, rivers, and ocean shores of Maine, and above all, cherished nurturing the Holy Spirit in the presence of relationship with so many people, whose lives he touched in innumerable ways.

A service in celebration of Dick’s life will be held Saturday, May 4, 11 a.m. at St. Paul’s Episcopal Church, 27 Pleasant St., Brunswick, where he will be laid to rest in their Memorial Garden.
