Jared Gardner (Jed) Hall of South Burlington and formerly of Starksboro passed away following a lengthy illness on Wednesday, March 25, 2015, at the age of 72. He was born May 30, 1942, in Claremont, New Hampshire, the youngest son of the late George E. and Nancy (Brooks) Hall.
He was raised in Scarsdale, New York, and graduated from Edgemont High School. Following a stint in the Army he moved to Starksboro, Vermont, to the family property and spent several years sugaring, helping maintain rental houses and various construction work.
