Hal, age 86, passed away October 1st, 2013.  Hal once said, the best decision he ever made was marrying his wife Lil.  He loved his family being the oldest of eight, he always set a good example for his siblings, Glen, Norma, Vern, Eleanor, Clifford, Gerald (predeceased) and Shirley.  Hal built roads all over Saskatchewan.  He was a dedicated employee to Evans Construction and Corman Park municipality, but his passion was aviation and hunting. After he retired, his son, Jim included Hal on the television show "Jim Shockey's Hunting Adventures", where Hal achieved celebrity status.  He was a really good father to his children, Jim, Geraldine and Barbara.  As a grandfather he was enjoyed by Branlin, Tony, Eva, Jamie and Thomas.  Everyone loved and respected Hal, his wife, siblings, children, grandchildren, nephews and nieces.  He will be greatly missed.

Dear Jim and Family,
First time me and my wife meet you, you was at the Harrisburg, PA show with your big hat on and looking bored. I talked to you briefly and got that friendly attitude that you have only later to watch your family grow with the carreer you choosed . I know how it is to lose love ones but with you them memories will always be there and your upcoming daughter will fill that gap for a long time.
I wish you and your family the best. I only dream of doing only a little of what you do
God bless and take care.
And sorry for the two loses so close together, they will be missed dearly

To the Shockey Family.
The losses that you have experienced this year is beyond words. My thoughts and prayers are with you during this time. Keeping the thoughts of the past makes life a bit more tolerable. Always remember the two 'Ole Buds' are together forever.

I never met Hal, saw Jim once at the SHOT show in Vegas. Watch the shows regularly and got to know what a character Hal was. My dad passed away nearly a year ago, a bit older than Hal but close and I know what a hole losing a dad leaves in the family. At least Hal had his mental faculties up to the end. He will be missed. My condolences to the family.

Loved to watch Hal and Len on Jim's show. They were great.
Was watching Jims show today about Sika deer hunt in Md when the notice flashed that Hal had passed. Was sad to learn that. He will be missed by millions of viewers who have come to enjoy hal on the show very much.
Would have loved to see Hal on that Sika hunt with Jim.
We are avid Sika hunters ourselves.
I met Jim and Eva once at the Harrisonburg Va. show and I remember talking to both of them about Hal and Len and asked if we could see more of them on the show. They will be missed

My condolences. As my father and I have only been at it for 30 yrs. he started me at 8. I was scared to you know where when he walked away from that stand after sitting with me for year. I thank him for that now. We still hunt and fish together. I can't imagine the day. Or what you are going thru. Brings tears to the toughest of men. Keep the good spirit and thanks for the shows. JB

Dear Hal Shockey Family:
OMG how we will miss your hunting shows without first Len and now Hal! Saw your farewell show last night and it was so sad, yet so darn funny. You had a wonderful father & grandfather! What a sense of humor he had and how fun to watch Hal and his mischievous ways! I know he has left good scars in all your hearts and the stories will never end!

Jim, my wife and I are lifetime hunters! She and I hail from upstate New York; where the winters, during hunting season, mirrors your weather. We love your family; of course, this includes Hal. What a card he was, and an inspiration to all, as we enter our twilight years. What I loved the most about Hal was his sense of humor. I also love the fact that he passed on the hunting/fishing tradition to his son, Jim. He has shown the world how important family is. May the Good Lord keep you and your family under the safety of his wings!

Ron had the pleasure of meeting Hal in November of 2012, at the Saskatoon airport. Ron was going on a hunt in Saskatchewan and Hal thought it was with Jim and he was there to pick him up. Darn the luck! Ron would have loved that, but that wasn't the case. They had a wonderful conversation and Ron took some pictures of him, which we have and will always, cherish. We will miss him greatly. God bless you and your family.

We are amateur husband and wife hunters from Lexington, NC. We have hunted together for many years. Watching your shows keeps up our enthusiasm for hunting. Just tonight as we watched your show we learned of your Dad's passing (as well as Len's). We are as sad as if we lost a close friend. Thank you for sharing your family with us!
