- After Care
Douglas Mack Hall, 44, passed away at his home in Bluffdale, UT, on July 15, 2019. He was born on April 11, 1975, in Provo, Utah, to Mack R. and Leslie Brady Hall.
Doug grew up in Pleasant Grove on his family farm which was 10 acres of land that his father farmed. He loved being out in the country where he could ride bikes, horses, swing on a monkey swing, catch water snakes in the irrigation ditch, and spend summers with his cousins. He was lucky enough to have a horse to ride and compete with in 4H.
When Doug was 15, he went to Hawaii to pick pineapple and attend high school there for a year. It was the beginning of a lifetime of adventures. He loved mountain biking and snowboarding. He even tried skydiving, and he loved tinkering with and riding his Wheelman. He was always up for an adventure.
When he came home, he finished high school and worked at quite a few different jobs while trying to figure out what he wanted to do. He laid sod, delivered pizza, made Subway sandwiches, dug trenches for TV cables, fixed computers, did some graphic design, worked construction including working on the LDS Conference Center, made sandwiches and pizza at Whole Foods and worked his way up to his present position of Culinary Team Leader.
He attended UVU and earned an Associate Degree in Graphic Art and also completed many classes toward a nursing degree.
In 1998 he married Ivonne Lopez and they had the sweetest, spunkiest baby girl named Zoe Mackenzie. Doug and Ivonne later divorced but Doug remained a constant source of love and support in Zoe’s life.
He married Marin Olson in 2016, and together they were raising their amazing son, Jack Marlow Hall. In December of last year, he and Marin had two beautiful babies, Daisy Rose and Sage Ridge, who unfortunately were not able to survive. Marin and Doug were both devastated at their loss. Doug was so proud of his family and loved each one of them so very much.
Doug made friends wherever he went, and once you were his friend, you were always his friend. He had a pure love for living. He was funny, witty, and just a tad sarcastic. He loved to make people laugh. He was a hard worker who knew how to work until the job was done. He was generous to a fault, giving away material things to anyone who seemed to have a greater need than his. He was fiercely protective of his family and those whom he loved.
Doug fought a battle with depression for many years and he was also more recently diagnosed as being bipolar. He was in the midst of treatment which was exacting a tough mental and physical toll. He loved his family more than anything else in the world, but for one tiny, brief moment, he lost sight of that, and had he been thinking clearly, he would never have left them.
If Doug has left a legacy for us, let it be that we will work hard, be kind and generous to others, and that we will take the time to listen to those who are seeking help and try to ease their burden in whatever way we can, be it large or small. Even though we may think it’s insignificant, our actions may make the difference in someone else’s battle with demons.
We love you, Doug, and we will miss you, but we are thankful that you are at peace. Until we meet again.
He is survived by his parents, his wife, Marin Olson Hall, his daughter, Zoe M. Behrmann, his son, Jack M. Hall, his brother, Shaun Hall, his sister, Amy Davis, his grandmother, Jackie Brady-Ostler, his dear friend, Kaylene Elliott, and many aunts, uncles, and cousins. He was preceded in death by his twin babies, Daisy Rose and Sage Ridge, his grandfather, Lester M. Brady, and grandparents, Walter C. and Emma Ludwigson Hall.
