In Celebration of KELT Member David Hall’s Life

David Hall

 David Hall: 1937-2015

David Hall and his wife Nancy have been dedicated supporters of KELT since 2005.  David loved nature and spent his entire life involved in outdoor activities. He led many trips for the Appalachian Mountain Club, both mountain climbing, long-distance canoe trips and exploring coastal islands. Impressively, David and Nancy have hiked in entirety, all nine of the KELT Preserves. David and Nancy lived in West Bath at an old tidewater farm where they raised their two children and where David built and ran a banquet hall, Dam Cove Lodge. David wrote and published several travel booklets about Maine and a book of stories about his childhood on Swan’s Island. David was active in Common Cause, Maine Organic Farmers and Gardeners Association, the West Bath Fire Department, in many legislative hearings and workshops in Augusta, in working to ensure the safe closing of the Maine Yankee Nuclear Power plant, and in the Quaker organization – Friends Committee on Maine Public Policy.  David was an important advocate for the environment in our region. We will certainly miss David in our community.

A celebration of his life will be held at some time in the future. Arrangements are under the care of Funeral Alternatives in Brunswick. The family requests that donations be made to KELT in David’s name.
