Harlan Page Hall, 61
PORTLAND — Harlan Page Hall, 61, of Portland, passed away peacefully with his children by his side on Friday, April 14, 2017.
He was born April 6, 1956, in New Britain Conn., the third child of Oscar “Bud” Hall Jr. and Muriel Johnson Hall. He was named after his grandfather, Harlan Page Johnson, who was named for Gov. Frederick Harlan Page.
He attended schools in Standish and Portland. He received a state high school equivalency diploma on June 25, 1976. Harlan made a science project at Jack Elementary School, it was a banjo that he had used to be potty trained on. Harlan joined the Marines and after his tour of duty came home to become a chef. He later became a hardworking mechanic at Bud Halls Auto on Riverside. Harlan liked making many savable items and his dedication to collecting coins was intense.
His hobby was camping in the woods with very little purchased items, for six to eight weeks at a time. He preferred to live off the land. He taught his children techniques of survival if they were ever in a bad situation. Walking trails close to home was necessary on weekends.
