Peter Hall

ARRIVED   June 21, 1936
DEPARTED   August 4, 2021


  • I am very sad to hear of Peter’s passing. Growing up, he was at many family events, since I am Charles Brown’s niece, and for decades he and Uncle Charlie were good friends. He cared for Uncle Charlie, as he died at home of cancer, in April, and our family was thankful Peter was there for him. I am grateful I was able to see Peter several times in May, when he was clearing out Uncle Charlie’s apartment and when he handed off Uncle Charlies’s dog, Alfie, to me. I would like to know when there is a memorial service.

  • I am just now hearing of the passing of my good friend Peter Hall. I saw his shower on a realtors Facebook page and am in shock. I-m glad he was well tended to. I so wish I could have been there to assist him. I had seen him recently, and had such a lovely time with him. I enjoyed him so much. I met him well I was a bank teller First Interstate Bank in boys Hot Springs we hit it off immediately. I miss him so much please keep me informed if any Omarion I would like to attend.

  • So Sorry to hear about the passing of Dear Peter
    He was one of those friends who are down-to-earth, pragmatic, AND have a Broughtonesque flair for life, adding a little Big Joy into our world!
    I first met Peter in the early 90’s, when he used to host Dignity (Gay catholics) at his home in Agua Caliente. Even though he was not catholic (I think he was Buddhist?), he loved socializing and hosting. It was always fun to visit his quirky home that he decorated in his own unique style. I seem to recall a lovely wooden hot-tub.
    I’d also see him at many of the other local gay men’s groups, potlucks, campouts etc.
    I’m glad you had a rich, full life Peter. See you at the end of the Rainbow Bridge. Hugs and love, Rosario

    Dear friends of Peter Hall,
    I sorry to write you with the sad news – if you don’t already know, Peter Hall, 85, died peacefully last Wednesday in the company of 2 of his oldest friends. He was only recently diagnosed with throat cancer. Peter’s time between diagnosis and passing was short and he was well cared for.

    Peter was a sweet guy who hosted many a Sonomen potluck (later Billy) at his unique home in Agua Caliente outside the town of Sonoma. He was a very creative, adventuresome and politically motivated man who went about life in his own quiet way- unless he was picketing for progressive causes on the Sonoma town square. He loved the out of doors and regularly took his camper on long excursions with a trailer for he motorcycle hooked to the back.

    His creative side was in evidence in his home and garden with architectural features , paintings and sculptures of his own making.

    I was asked to send this email at the request of his long-time friends and care givers – Susie and Lynn. Eventually there will be a memorial service. Susie and Lynn will do their best to make it a safe event in light of Covid.

    For those of you in Sonoma County who knew him, I just want you to know that Peter Hall died peacefully at home (due to cancer) at 4:44 pm on Wednesday, August 4. He was 85. The year before the covid restrictions, in August of 2019, my partner Alan and I went with Pete camping in Sequoia National Park. He loved camping and we went with him to national and state parks all over the West. Pete hosted a few Sonomen gatherings at this house. He will be remembered with much love. Here he is with me on Morro Rock in the Sierras.
