Thomas Hall Obituary

Thomas Lester Hall, 70, of Cascade, Idaho, died Thursday, August 17, 2023, after a long health battle.

Per his request, there are no services planned at this time.  The family is planning a Celebration of Life in Mountain Home in the future. Arrangements are under the direction of McCall Funeral Home, McCall, Idaho.

Tom was born November 20, 1952, in Twin Falls, ID, the son of Emmit Lester and Sarah Hall.

He graduated from Mountain Home High School in 1971 and graduated from the College of Southern Idaho’s auto mechanic program in 1972.

Tom married his High School sweetheart Shelia Zupkow, on December 22, 1972.  Their union brought them two sons, Matthew and Jonathan.

Tom lived most of his life in the Mountain Home and Hammett area. He and his family lived three years in Germany during the late 1980s. Tom worked as a mechanic, following in his father’s footsteps and owned his own business. Later he became a skilled tow truck driver eventually owning H & H Towing, helping many stranded travelers. If you ever called Tom for help, he never turned you down, no matter the task or time of day or how busy he was. He was a member of Elmore County Search and Rescue and enjoyed snow mobiling and the Idaho outdoors.

Tom is survived by: his sons Matthew Hall and Jonathan Hall, both of Cascade; his sisters Sharon (Chuck) Mora, Oregon City, Oregon, Dorthy “Dottie” (Bill) Hawkes, Boise, ID, Roxanne Sagatis, Waldport, Oregon, Rose (Edward) Plympton, Meridian, Idaho and partner Carolyn Varva, that helped care for him until the very end; and numerous nieces and nephews.
