Robert Hallatt

1923 - 2013

Robert Hallatt, 89, passed away January 14, 2013, at Wheatland
Village, 1500 Catherine Street, Walla Walla, Washington.
He was born March 26, 1923, in Calgary, Alberta, Canada to
Walter Russell and Geraldine Mae Lindsay Hallatt.

Spending most of his early childhood in Alberta, Canada, Robert moved,
in the late forties, to the Bay Area of California where he played
professional ice hockey. He continued his university studies
in San Francisco, obtaining a DDS and began his practice of dentistry.
Not long after, he and his family moved to Monterey, compliments of the
US Army, where he provided much-needed skills in dental
repair and reconstruction for wounded military returning
home from the Korean Conflict. He returned to Berkeley,
California in 1955, where he practiced dentistry for the next
forty years.

In 2007, he and his wife, Jane, moved to Walla Walla,
Washington, to be close to their daughter and son-in-law,
Kimberley and Bob. Dr. Hallatt loved the outdoors. His
pastimes almost always involved fly fishing on the Russian
River for steelhead trout and playing golf at the many
courses on the bay. However, his true love was his partner
in life, Jane, and his son, Rob and his daughters Kim and
Kate. He will live in their hearts and in their memories.
He has passed but is not gone…

He is survived by his wife, Jane; two daughters:
Kimberley Hallatt-Jones and Katherine Hallatt-Cauvin;
grandchild, Jean Paul Cauvin. He was preceded in death by
his son, Robert Patrick Hallatt.

Cremation arrangements have been entrusted to
Mountain View-Colonial DeWitt, 1551 Dalles Military
Road, Walla Walla, Washington. His urn will be placed in
the Mountain View Cemetery in Oakland, California.
