Sheriff Boyd Hall was shot and killed while attempting to negotiate with a suicidal man. The sheriff was called to a ranch where a man had been drinking and was threatening suicide. Sheriff Hall asked the man to go inside and get another beer and to get him one in an attempt to calm him down. As he waited, the man shot through the window hitting him in the heart area, killing him instantly. Other officer present returned fire, but it is believed the suspect killed himself.

Sheriff Hall was a US Navy veteran. A shooting range in Jackson Hole, Wyoming, has been named after Boyd L. Hall in his memory. He was survived by his wife, three children, three stepchildren, and two grandchildren.

MEMORIAL DAY 2016 approaching. As every year it awakens anew memories of that first day of November 1972 and the shocking events which took the life of one of the finest, Boyd L. Hall, my husband.
Much has been said in his honor. All I can add is: GONE, BUT NEVER
FORGOTTEN AND NEVER WILL BE. Rest in peace.
