Llewellyn A. Hall Community leader

July 14, 1992

Services for Llewellyn A. Hall, a retired machinist who was a community leader in the Remington area, will be held at 10:30 a.m. today at the Burgee-Henss Funeral Home, 3631 Falls Road.

Mr. Hall, who was 76 and lived on West 31st Street, died July 7 at a hospital in Cortland, N.Y., after a heart attack while visiting relatives.

He retired about one year ago from JAG Industries after working there and at the Franklin Balmar Corp. since moving to Baltimore about 50 years ago.

City Council President Mary Pat Clarke yesterday described him as "a champion of the young people of Remington who never let up on us downtown." She said Mr. Hall had recently been to see her in support of summer recreation programs at the Wyman Park Multi-Purpose Center where he served as president of the advisory council.

He campaigned for construction of the center in 1976, and for major repairs in 1984 after the foundation settled in the landfill on which it was built.

At the center, he devised a tutorial program for schoolchildren.

Mr. Hall had also been volunteer director of the Remington Little League and similar recreation programs at the center.

His work for the community dates back to the 1950s when he began appearing before the zoning board and other governmental bodies. He also helped to represent the community in the planning of Wyman House, an apartment building for the elderly at 29th and Howard streets.

Born in Dryden, N.Y., and raised in Groton, N.Y., he worked as a machinist in Dryden before moving to Baltimore.

He is survived by his wife, the former Eleanor K. Staley; three daughters, Muriel Phoebus of Palatine, N.Y., Fran Bezold of Woodstock, Md., and Hazel Helmick of Baltimore; four sisters, Lucille Bliven of Mecklenburg, N.Y., Eleanor Collins of Freeville, N.Y., Alma Forshee of Raleigh, N.C., and Beatrice Alexander of Groton; six brothers, Stanley Hall of Utica, N.Y., Roger Hall of Syracuse, N.Y., David Hall of Nacogdoches, Texas, and Deforest, Duane and Kenneth Hall, all of Groton; and eight grandchildren.
