BATON ROUGE, LA (KMSS) — Retired Assistant Superintendent and current Chairman of the State Gaming Control Board, Dale Hall, died peacefully in his sleep just shortly after noon today at his home. Dale had been on leave recovering from a surgery last month to remove cancerous tissue from his neck.
Dale was on the State Police Force for more than 30 years, and other than his wife and two sons, his love for law enforcement was unsurpassed. He had integrity, passion, a sense of fairness, and love of people and that was a cornerstone of his career. He leaves behind a legacy of accomplishments and his service set a high mark for those to follow.
Colonel Mike Edmonson says more than a friend was lost today.
"We lost a mentor, a leader, and most of all our brother. Our sense of loss is profound, but we can take some small comfort in knowing that Dale will live on in our hearts and memories. We will honor him daily through our actions."
Edmonson also asks that you keep Dale, his wife, his two sons, and the rest of his family in your prayers.
