Reflections for Sheriff Boyd L. Hall

He was the best dad ever. He had a wonderful singing voice, and he and our mother (Wanda Baucum Hall, married 25 years) used to sing to us on long car trips. We like to think that somewhere he and mother are traveling toward a favorite heavenly fishing spot, harmonizing some old World War II song. The angels would stop and listen.

Thirty-four years have passed since you were taken from me. But I miss you still.
You were my inspiration and the memories of the happy years with you linger on and on.
Rest in peace, my Love
Your wife

Boyd was also a "self-made man". He enlisted in the Navy as just a boy, working up in the ranks until one day he commanded his own vessel. He retired as a Commander in the Navy. Boyd desired to continue his public service and ran for Sheriff of Teton County. He remains an inspiration to his family and will always be loved and remembered.
