Phillip "Bob" Hallett

December 2, 1946 — October 27, 2023

Phillip Robert “Bob” Hallett, 76, of Fergus Falls, passed away peacefully in his home under the care of hospice Friday, October 27, 2023.

He was born December 2, 1946 to Phillip and Adeline (Groen) Hallett in Lisbon, ND. He grew up and attended grade school and high school in Milnor, ND.

On October 21, 1967, he was united in marriage to Carol Larson. They made their home in Milnor, ND. Bob attended NDSCS in Wahpeton, ND and graduated in 1970. After graduation they moved to Valley City, then Harwood, and finally to Fergus Falls.

During his years of employment, he worked at Melroe Bobcat in Gwinner and Enterprise Sales in Valley City. He and close friends, Steve Nielson and Melvin Karch, owned and operated Sheyenne Tire and Sports in Valley City.

In 2008 Bob and Carol moved to Fergus Falls.

Bob was multi-talented in many areas and trades. He enjoyed woodworking (making gifts for family), home improvements, camping, fishing, boating, spending time outdoors, and reading western themed books. His greatest joy was his family and the time they spent together.
