DONN HALL PASSES

PASSES PEACEFULLY TODAY
This morning I received a message, since confirmed, that former Mayor and, most recently, Chairman of the Costa Mesa Planning Commission, Donn Hall, passed away peacefully this morning.

WORKED HARD ALTHOUGH ILL
As mentioned in an earlier post, Hall has been ill for several months. Nonetheless, he continued to soldier on, fulfilling his duties on the
commission. Those of us who have observed him in action will recall his sometimes gruff demeanor and always the champion of the little guy.

REBUFFING RIGGY
I, personally, enjoyed watching him swat then-commissioner Jim Righeimer back into line when he felt he was abusing an applicant. Recalling him on the dais makes me smile.

NO INFO ABOUT SERVICES YET

At this time no information is available regarding services but the message I received indicates that the family would prefer no flowers, food or telephone calls.

DONN HALL WILL BE MISSED
We wish his wife, Mesa Consolidated Water District Director Trudy Hall, and their family the best at this difficult time.
