Don Christopher Hale

February 16, 1949 — February 3, 2021

Don Christopher Hale, 71, known to all as Chris, passed away Wednesday, February 3, 2021 at his home in Laguna Vista, TX after a three-year battle with cancer.  At his side, was his loving wife Dianna.

Chris was born in Kansas City, MO on February 16, 1949 to Lawrence (D. 1970) and Wilma (D. 1985) Hale.   The oldest son of four children, he is survived by a brother, Steve Hale of Overland Park, KS.   Chris graduated of Olathe High School and Mid-America Nazarene University with a major in accounting.  Preceded in death by brother, Lawrence Hale (D. 2019), and sister Barbara Rainey (D. 2021).

He is survived by his wife, Dianna.  They were married February 28, 1984 in Olathe, KS.  Chris was the father of two children, son Brett A Hale of Waxahachie, TX and daughter Erin M Pfaff (husband Jeremy) of Lonetree, CO.  Chris is survived by 7 grandchildren: David Hale (wife Whitnye) of Arlington, TX, Allison Hale of Waxahachie, TX, Brett Hale, Jr of Corsicana, TX, Randy Hale of Frost, TX, Kate, Claire, and Stella Pfaff of Lonetree, CO and 4 great-grandchildren: Jaxon, Jacob, and Justin Hale of Dallas/Ft Worth area and Vera Lee Hale of Arlington, TX.

Chris began his accounting career in Olathe, KS, with a small accounting practice.  By 1985, he had evolved to a private firm specializing in Health Care Accounting and Reporting for the Long-Term Care Industry.  After consulting in more than 18 states, he retired in January 2014.

A round of golf and good game of poker was a perfect day. Morning coffee and “family meeting” time.  Two people who have remained a constant in his life and despite their aversion for their middle names, they allowed Chris to call them Jean Ann and Kendra Jo.  Chris was their mentor, financial guide, go-to-guy for advice and oftentimes their second “Dad.”  He never let anyone leave the house without a reminder to bring him back a surprise.

Private Burial will be take place at Oak Lawn Memorial Cemetery in Olathe, KS at a later date.

In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made to SafeHaven Hospice, 2340 S Central Blvd, Brownsville, TX 78520 or a charity of your choice.
