Dr. John Stuart Hall: Beloved Educator, Community Leader, and Family Man

Dr. John Stuart Hall, a renowned professor, respected community leader, and devoted family man, passed away on March 28, 2024, at the age of 81. Born on May 15, 1942, in Walla Walla, Washington to Cecil and Mary Jayne Hall, John led an extraordinary life dedicated to education, public service, and his loved ones.

Esteemed Academic Career

After graduating from Richland High School in 1960, John went on to earn a Bachelor’s degree, a Master’s, and a PhD, dedicating over 38 years of his career to academia as a Professor of Public Affairs and Public Service at Arizona State University, a founder and former Director of ASU’s School of Public Affairs and its Center for Urban Studies, and Project Director of over 40 large scale funded and often interdisciplinary Urban Research projects. He was an expert in his field, authoring and co-authoring numerous books on topics including Managing Community Conflict, Adult Resilience, Healthy Ageing, Public Policy, and Governance issues.

Cherished Family Man and Community Leader

In his personal life, John found great joy in the simple pleasures – reading, working out, watching sports, and spending quality time with his beloved family. He could often be found at the gym, or on the golf course with his son and close friends. John’s kind spirit, infectious laughter, an unwavering commitment to making the world a better place will forever be remembered by his loving wife of 62 years, Connie; his son, Brian; and his granddaughter, Samantha.

Legacy of Generosity and Service

John was preceded in death by his parents, Cecil and Mary Jayne, and his brother, Richard. Dr. John Stuart Hall will be deeply missed by all who knew and loved him. His remarkable life and enduring impact will continue to inspire those whose lives he touched.

In lieu of a formal memorial, a private service will be held for the immediate family.
