    Hal was just the absolute best. I’ll never forget sitting in his office and spending hours on end hearing about all his life adventures. He had such an amazing life filled with so many adventures. But Agnes and his Girls were his best adventure yet. I feel so fortunate that I got to have Hal in my life for the last 6 years. There will never be another that comes close to being the amazing guy Hal was, he was one in a million. I will miss him for eternity.

  • Cindy Yu says:

    Hal is a good friend, a good big brother, a good teacher, a good mentor, a good business associate and a good smart guy. Thank you for looking after I and Charlize and appreciated very much for all the support. I missed you very much. RIP, Hal.

  • Enya Nichols says:

    It’s heartbreaking to imagine that Hal, my friend, mentor, counselor, and co-worker, has left us in tears and shock. No words may heal the pain that we carry in our hearts, most especially to the love of his life, his 3 girls, Agnes, Arianna & Heather. I will miss Hal’s stories about his girls, how proud he was of his twins, how he spoiled Agnes, and the adventures and places that they all shared. I miss the caring Hal, his wisdom that helped not only me but most of his clients. He cared so much, he always had the right words to say – and to make you feel better, he’ll go out of his way to make the burden lighter, argument easier, he was a problem-solver, he always had an answer to every question you can think of. He was always a source of motivation, inspiration, and trust.

    Thank you Hal for always picking up my calls, you always knew what to say to calm me and guide me in the right direction. I appreciate your friendship. I will cherish you and take by heart all of your advice, you will never be forgotten. I will forever miss you and our laughs together. I will miss “firing” you just so you will leave the office and take your lunch. I will miss giving you a hard time every time you snack on your Jellybeans.

    To Agnes, Arianna & Heather, we share our grief and prayers with you and ask God to provide you the necessary strength to help you sail through these testing times. Hal’s presence will always be missed, but he shall remain forever in our hearts and cherished memories.
    I love you Hal, until we meet again.

  • Aaron David says:

    Hal was like a father to me. All he wanted to do was help you, make your life better l, and laugh with you. He knew so much. He seemed to have a solution to any problem. His advice could get you out of any jam. He was one of the few “Real” people around. I will miss him dearly


    Hal’s guidance and dedication to me was what this
    country is all about. My heart goes out to his family
    yet I want them to know, that everybody who had
    the privilege to meet this man knew that he cared
    and lived up to the highest standards allways being
    an inspirations to all of us. May he rest in peace.

  • Cynthia says:

    I’d like to extend my heartfelt condolences to Hal’s family and dear friends. What a tremendous loss. I met Hal years ago when he had an office in Los Altos, and I happened to see the sandwich board on the sidewalk advertising his services. At the time I was living abroad and just in town for a few days to visit family and a good friend. I saw the sign and remembered my tax preparer recently letting me know of his retirement. Something compelled me to walk up those stairs (with my friend’s four young kids all in tow) and I’m so grateful that kismet kicked in that moment. That was the only time I met Hal, although over the years he and I would resume our annual exchange of emails and calls when it was time to prepare my tax filing. Some years my communication was more charged or frantic, and Hal always responded in a steady and warm tone. The qualities that others have pointed to in their tributes were ones that he transmitted so easily through email and phone calls. Hal was a helpful thinking partner, skilled in listening and allowing you to speak in an honest and open way without feeling judged. Taxes and finances are chronic stressors for me, so I will always be grateful for Hal’s patience, humor, and care he generously extended to me over the years.

    ” HAL ”

    I met gal in the 80s when he was my supervisor in the Air Force We instantly bonded. We became brothers. I have been so blessed to have such a giving friend
    Hal would give you the shirt off his back to help you out and never question why you needed the help.
    He was very devoted to his family. He always looked for ways to make them more comfortable. He was always planning something for their next big adventure,he wanted to show them the world.
    I am also grateful that Agness could see we were like brothers, it .
    allowed us to become family
    After Half and Agness had the twins I to had a daughter born three days earlier they became the triplets that kept us bonded more we were now uncles too. We have made sure the girls have been together every birthday ( 18 now ) July will be 19
    I am so grateful fate brought us together 35 years ago

    God bless you brother I will miss you very much

    I would like to send my condolences and strength to his family during this difficult time.

    I´m so sad to have heard the news of his passing. I´d only worked with Hal a few years, but he really helped me navigate my complex tax situation. Furthermore, he was an exceptional human being. A kind/gentle soul who worked selflessly to help others regardless of their background. I really admired him and had always looked forward to our meetings. To listen to him speak lovingly of his girls, their adventures, and stories of his past.

    I am truly blessed to have known him. May he rest in peace.

  • Milan Krajci says:

    Hal, my dear friend. It has been over 25 years since we first met and have enjoyed company ever since. Your pointed wit, cleverness, and boundless humor made you a great companion at any gathering. We will miss you as do countless others. You are loving father selflessly dedicated to your family and your legacy will continue forever.

    You will remain in our thoughts and always live in our prayers.

  • Zeeshan N. says:

    Hal was my friend, counsel, advisor, and most importantly like an older brother to me. He helped me through my bitter divorce, then raising my 2 children as a single dad, then finding my true love in life, and also dealing with the trials and tribulations of having a separated family.

    Hal taught me the most important lessons in life; live it everyday to the fullest, respect others and their views, and seek friendships without expecting anything in return. Hal was a giver in all ways, I saw him care for others in ways no one else these days would have the time to do.

    My family is very close to Hal, and we shall dearly miss him forever.

    Hal – you are always in our prayers and thoughts. and we will always stay close to Agnes and the girls to keep our memories alive.

  • Jason Jung says:

    My condolences to his family and business associates. Hal will be truly missed! A great person with exceptional kindness to his family and friends. Although, I have known Hal for 15 years from doing my taxes. Hal was regarded as a close friend, we would sharing family accomplishments and accolades. He was knowledgeable in what he do and enjoyed sharing it. I am grateful to have met Hal and his business associates, knowing I am in great hands, a legacy Hal has built.

    Hal will always be in our thoughts and prayers.

  • Jenny says:

    For Agnes and the girls. So sorry to hear of Hal’s passing. I remember him from years ago when Maury Dunbar use to have classes at our house from Foothill College. My thoughts and prayers are with you and the girls.

  • Robert Sohigian says:

    My condolences to Agnes, Arianna, and Heather.

    Hal was a life member of Los Altos Masonic Lodge #712, where I am currently the Junior Warden. Although our times at the lodge overlapped, I didn’t know Hal that well… I was in China for a good part of it.

    It has been a true pleasure to learn more about him through the various remembrances (including the video) as well as discussing him with Agnes. Seeing the picture of the girls in the East when they were young was wonderful (I have often taken my six-year-old son to the lodge as well).

    My best to you all.

  • S says:

    John a mentor of mine, introduced me to Hal a few years back. He was a great soul, very diligent and went out of his way bending backward to be helpful. Hal had many facets I hadn’t discover yet and at every session I discovered more which was a great joy. He spoke a lot about his girls and he did have a really hard time seeing them off to college.

    We will be missing you, Hal. You are special! Way too early to go!!

    All our heartfelt wishes to his family whom we didn’t get to know.

  • Pearl Dworkin says:

    It is hard to believe Hal is gone. My deepest condolences and prayers for strength to his beautiful family. Hal was such a good man and full of positive energy – the kind of person who made taxes fun, a rare and wonderful man, indeed. He had the best stories, and he absolutely loved planning parties and celebrations for his girls. He was helpful, brilliant, kind and always shared his beloved jelly belly’s. Hal was such a good friend to so many and we are all better off to have known him. Thank you Hal for all of your help over the years. I love you and I know you are watching over your girls.

  • Mary says:

    Hal got me through some difficulties but always with a sense of humor and professionalism. He was my go to person
    for my finances. He will be missed by many I’m sure. Selfless, very responsive, and a great guy who always spoke lovingly of his family. Our sincere condolences. Mary and Gordon Lucas.
