Shad Hall, age 44, unexpectedly passed away after suffering a heart attack on Thursday, April 9, 2015 in Leamington, Utah. He was born on February 2, 1971 in Lehi, Utah to Melvin and Roma Jean Smith Hall.
Shad grew up in Lehi in a large family with 6 brothers and 5 sisters. After completing school, he earned his certification as an automotive emissions specialist, and spent many years working in that trade in the Lehi area.

In 2008, Shad met Mary Lynn Whittle. They were married on March 17, 2009, in Salt Lake City, Utah. It was St. Patrick’s Day, and in keeping with the celebration, they both dressed all in green for the wedding ceremony. Shad became a dad to Mary’s three children, Alysse, Rachel, and Joshua.
