Gone Home - Tom Hall 1985-2014



Tom Hall died on 16th August after a short illness. He was used to battling with his health after being diagnosed with leukaemia at the age of 6. He joined Cubs and lived his life as a true Scout should. He demonstrated that determination and hard work allowed you to realise your dreams, but at the same time he put a huge amount of effort and time in helping other people. His funeral is at 11.00 at Southampton Crematorium, East Chapel, on Tuesday the 2nd of September.

Tom was a World Jamboree Participant in Thailand 2002/2003. He was an active member of his local community (Totton and Eling Carnival Committee), his Scout Groups (4th Eling and 2nd Stanley’s Own) and fundraised for cancer charities despite his own problems. He and his family were instrumental in the 4th Eling Sea Scout new HQ build – opened June 2013. After becoming a Helper with the Cub Pack instead of joining Venture Scouts he continued as one of the first Young Leaders in 2001. At 18 become an Assistant Cub Scout Leader and completed his Wood Badge. Tom was an inspiration to the younger members and adults he worked with and showed everyone that nothing is impossible. He had a sense of humour second to none, his laugh was infectious and best of all he had the largest Maglite on earth. Those who knew Tom might want to leave his family a message on Facebook
