Obituary

Dominic J. Hall, a Catholic man, answered God’s call home and peacefully passed September 4, 2022 surrounded by his loved ones.

Dom, 33, was a man among men.  He was a loyal servant, a genuine friend, a compassionate son, and a steadfast brother.  He persevered and excelled in all that he set forth to do.  His calm, confident demeanor made everyone around him feel invincible and safe.  With Dom by your side you could take on the world with ease.

Dom was born on August 23, 1989 to Joseph and Bonnie (Champeau) Hall in Fond du Lac. Brother to Desiree (Michael) Stockov (Hall) and Trevor (Whitney) Hall.  Dom graduated from Xavier High School in 2008.  During his high school years he heard the calling to join the service.  Immediately following graduation he answered his calling by joining the United States Marine Corps.  

He was united in marriage to Jacole, -The Love of His Life- Hall (Vande Hey) on December 27, 2014 and was a devoted Father to his two sons, Victor and Thorin (ages 4 and 2).  Dom was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer May 28, 2021, during his entire battle Dom remained humble, as the stoic masterpiece that he is and each day he would give up his sufferings to those oppressed, struggling with pregnancy, and for the sick to be healed.  He would pray the rosary each day and felt a strong connection to the Blessed Mother Mary.  “Something Beautiful is going to come from this, I just know it.”  You could often hear him say.

Dom was a sworn Officer and SWAT member with the Appleton Police Department.  During his time at Appleton Police Department he received the life saving award from Appleton Police Department for providing medical aid to a suicidal man. Prior to joining the Police Department Dom served in the United States Marine Corps for four years as a Force Reconnaissance Marine where completed a combat deployment to Afghanistan.  He completed two deployments: one as a member of the 31st MEU and another as a member of Operations Enduring Freedom where he received Combat Action Ribbon and the Navy Achievement Medal with Valor.  Dom left active duty in the Marine Corps and then served in the Ohio National Guard as a member of the 19th Special Forces Group, where he served as a Special Forces Weapons Sergeant where he once again completed a combat deployment to Afghanistan.  During deployment with the Army he received a Bronze Star and the Combat Infantry Badge.  He had a humbled boldness to him and was a true man of service. 

Let us remember, “It is foolish and wrong to mourn the men who died.  Rather, we should thank God such men lived.”   George S. Patton
