Alan Everett Hale, Sr., 73, of Wilmington, passed away peacefully on October 10, 2014. Alan was born on June 29, 1941 in Wilmington, NC. He graduated from NC State University in 1964. He worked at Goodyear Aerospace in Akron, Ohio for 13 years, Dixie Cement in Wilmington and Knoxville, TN, and retired from Koch Industries in Wilmington.

There was no place Alan would rather be than the coast of North Carolina. He was happiest when surf fishing, camping, boating, and sitting on the beach with family and friends.

He is survived by his loving wife of 52 years, Emily Schindler Hale, children Kim Collins (and husband Jeff), Alan Hale, Jr.., and Kelly LaMonda (and husband Chris), six grandchildren, three sisters (Susan Colucci, Janet Newman, Patti Hale), two brothers (Tim Hale, Jon Hale), and mother Virginia Sellers Hale.

    Hi my name is Kayla and I am a local bible teacher. I am so sorry for the loss of your loved one. There is a very comforting scripture at Isaiah 25:8. It says that soon Jehovah will swallow up death forever and that he will wipe away all of the tears. So we can all look forward to a time when death will be no more. I hope that this scripture can bring some true comfort during these difficult times.

    To Emily and family of Alan. One of the best friends I enjoyed but for a short time. I will always smile when I think of him. My thoughts are with you.
