John H. Hallock, longtime resident of Delta, died April 3, 2017, at Good Samaritan Society in Loveland after a short illness. He was 98.
He farmed with his father and brother Hubert for many years east of Delta.
He married Phyllis Boyden and to this union two children were born. They later divorced.
In 1967, he married Pauline Connor. They moved to Buellton, Calif., in 1968 and returned to Delta in 1986. She preceded him in death in 2003.
He is survived by his sons, John Charles "Chuck" (Sherry Baumgart) Hallock of Tucson, Ariz., and Jim (Linda) Hallock of Loveland; nine grandchildren; and six great-grandchildren.
He was preceded in death by his wife, Pauline; her children, Patsy, Carroll and Jeanne; a granddaughter, Dawn; brother, Hubert; and three sisters.
A graveside service will be held at 2 p.m. May 27 at the Olathe Cemetery. A reception will follow immediately at the Delta Elks Lodge.
Thanks to the efforts of state Rep. Millie Hamner, House District 61, Colorado State University plans to re-open the Rogers Mesa research site.
The facility was taken out of operation in 2011, due to budget cuts throughout the CSU system.
