Langley, BC – It is with great sadness that we share the news of the passing of City of Langley Councillor Dave Hall.

Dave was a passionate member of our community and a City of Langley Councillor for the past seven years. He served on numerous committees during his time on council. He particularly enjoyed his work with the Parks and Environment committee as well as with business development and planning.

“Dave was a devoted member of Council. He regularly conducted his own research to understand the issues and possibilities within our city. Dave often brought an opposing view to the council table which contributed to compelling and engaging discussions,” said Mayor Ted Schaffer.

Councillor Hall was a well-rounded fitness and sports enthusiast and brought his enthusiasm to many different city held functions and activities. Personally, he enjoyed his Al Anderson morning swim and his daily cycling routine while continually committing to specific endeavors like the City of Langley Tri-it Triathlon and the annual Terry Fox Run.

As an advocate for the new Timms Community Centre, he was looking forward to trying out the walking/running track in the new facility opening in February 2016.

City of Langley flags will fly at half-mast in remembrance of this dedicated, passionate and thought-provoking man.

In lieu of flowers, the Hall family requests that any donations be directed towards organizations that support cancer research like the Terry Fox Foundation or the BC Cancer Foundation. More information about a Celebration of Life will be provided as it becomes available.
