Capt. Milton E. Hall, Jr. ’58

Milton E. Hall Jr., 81 of Bowen Road in Kittery died on Wednesday, May 9, 2018 at Wentworth Douglass Hospital in Dover with his family by his side. Born in Portsmouth Hospital on March 23, 1937 he was a son of the late Milton Sr. and Flora (Weeks) Hall and was raised in the home in Kittery he lived in today. Milton attended local schools, graduating from RW Traip Academy and furthering his education at Maine Maritime Academy.

He spent his career in the Merchant Marines visiting ports in South America, Africa, Europe and Asia ending his career as a Captain. After retiring he spent almost 20 years serving on the Port Authority and volunteering at the Kittery Historical and Naval Museum.

In his free time he enjoyed lobstering the traditional way, hauling each trap by hand. This gave him the additional opportunity to provide friends and neighbors with special meals. He is remembered for taking care of needs quietly and unseen be it for family, a friend, the town, the Museum or a stranger.

Milton is survived by his loving family, a son Michael and his wife Christine Hall of San Diego, Calif., a daughter Rebecca Hall and her partner JoAnn Paul of Kittery, grandchildren Adelaide and Delaney Hall, his partner Arlene Radford of Hampton and her family Kenneth Radford, Diane Umholtz and Stacy Wright, siblings May Verano, Charles Hall, Eleanor Searway, and Everett Hall, and many nieces and nephews.

SERVICES: Friends are invited to visit with his family on Monday May 14, 2018 from 6 to 8 p.m. in the JS Pelkey Funeral Home 125 Old Post Road Kittery Maine 03904. A memorial service will be held at 11 a.m. on Tuesday, May 15th at the First Congregational Church of Hampton located at 127 Winnacunnet Rd, Hampton, NH 03842.
