HALL John 'Rufus', Hexham (formerly of Ovingham) On 6th October 2020, aged 93 years. Loved husband of his cherished wife, the late Helen. Adored dad of Lindsay, with Paul. Proud father of Jonathan, with Ruth. Granda of Monique and Danielle. Rufus wanted to thank his family and clan for their affection and his friends for their company. He also wanted to thank all of those who attended his annual 'Birthday Bashes' since his 90th, as he regarded these as great days and warm-ups for his final send-off. There will be a private funeral at West Road Crematorium. When circumstances allow, there will be a Memorial Birthday Bash to celebrate his life. Such a large character leaves a vast hole in the lives of those that love him; we all celebrate his life and cherish his memory.
