Our sympathies are extended to Hal's extended family. I met Hal when we each were a part of Ray's Heffner's classes at the Iowa City Senior Center. Most of us in the class were retired, and it included an amazing collection of brilliant and accomplished people. Hal was one of those, and he added greatly to discussions that included medicine and music. Hal was generous and warm in his friendship to classmates. It was a joy to see and hear him play his trombone in the New Horizons Band. Hal enriched our lives by his presence, friendship, and joy of life. Ruth and Ken Kuntz
I remember both Hal and Suzanne fondly and with joy. My heartfelt condolences to all the family. With sympathy, Ellen Caplan
Sorry to hear about the passing of Hal. I was one of his residents. I thought very highly of him. He was a good teacher, mentor and man. Sincerely, Dr. Maurice Craig Champion
I notes with sadness the death of an old friend. We met in 1962 at UIHC when I was a new faculty member and Hal was a resident in internal medicine. Our senses of humors were similar and I had high regard for his character and dedication to the art and science of medicine. I was pleased that he chose to join the faculty. And he had a great wife in Suzanne who died too young but left Hal with a strong family. Both of us loved Jazz, its history and delighted in listening. We united also in the joy of family, the dedication to clinical medicine and the science that advances it. What a fine man.

Hal was generous with his support to other musicians. I joined New Horizons Band in 2006 and Hal welcomed me. I later performed with him in ensembles. I missed his silky sound when he retired from band. When the Old Post Office Brass played at the Solon Care Center we looked forward to seeing Hal and the welcome he gave us. We miss him already.
