The means to fight
Michael HALLS, whose historic $5-million gift boosted the fight against amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, loses his long personal battle with the disease.
By Kelly PEDRO, Free Press Reporter
The Londoner who made history four years ago with the largest-ever gift for amyotrophic lateral sclerosis research in Canada died yesterday. Michael HALLS wanted his $5-million donation to London researchers to make a difference, said Dr. Michael STRONG, the neurologist who heads the amyotrophic lateral sclerosis clinic at London Health Sciences Centre.
"He was possibly the most unassuming person you'd ever meet," STRONG said yesterday.
HALLS died in the palliative care unit at St. Joseph's Health Care. He was 63.
The Toronto native made his money in the insurance business while living in British Columbia for 25 years.
HALLS was diagnosed with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis in December 1997. The fatal neuromuscular disease is commonly known as Lou Gehrig's disease
HALLS moved to London a year after he was diagnosed to be closer to his family.
He joined amyotrophic lateral sclerosis support groups and sat on a provincial executive board for amyotrophic lateral sclerosis.
At the amyotrophic lateral sclerosis clinic for a routine checkup with STRONG, HALLS revealed his plan to donate $5 million.
"You could've blown me over with a feather," STRONG recalled.
The 2001 gift put a spotlight on the disease affecting 3,000 Canadians.
"I want this to be my legacy," HALLS said in announcing his donation. "This is an insidious, deadly disease. The more public awareness there is, the more people are going to contribute to finding a cure."
HALLS's gift created the Michael Halls Centre for amyotrophic lateral sclerosis Research and the Arthur J. Hudson Chair in amyotrophic lateral sclerosis Research to support senior researchers and technicians.
The money funds amyotrophic lateral sclerosis research at the Robarts Research Institute and the Lawson Health Research Institute, London Health Sciences Centre's research arm.
"He knew we wouldn't have a cure tomorrow, but he knew we needed to put that framework in place," STRONG said.
HALLS never complained about his illness, said his brother, Chris. "He didn't hide behind his disease. He just ignored it."
HALLS golfed until two years ago. Despite being fed with a feeding tube for the last four years, he continued to walk and explore London neighbourhoods.
"He loved to play cribbage and take everybody's money," Chris said.
Though he had money, HALLS was pragmatic and simple about life, Chris said.
"On a trip, he'd bunk into a Motel 6 and I'd bunk into a Ritz Carlton."
HALLS, who is survived by a son, three grandchildren and two brothers, delivered Meals on Wheels in his red Mercedes 550 SL convertible until a couple of years ago.

Let my name ever be the household word that it always was, let it be spoken without effect, without the trace of a shadow on it. Life means all that it ever meant. It is the same as it ever was; there is unbroken continuity. Why should I be out of mind because I am out of sight? I am waiting for you, for an interval, somewhere near, just around the corner. All is well." Canon Holland - St. Paul's Cathedral, 1918

They settled in the London area with the dream of building a business. Pete's destiny was to work in the greenhouse. From a very young age, he loved to accompany his father to the greenhouses where he worked. So while his parents worked elsewhere to provide a steady income, Pete was instrumental in the growth of the family business from its inception. Eventually he took over the business from his parents and has steadily and successfully built it to what it is today. Through the years he employed many family members and students and taught them an admirable work ethic. He worked right along with his staff and found it very difficult when he became ill and could no longer work. Pete was an admired Boy Scout Leader and a founding member of the London and District Florists Association. Special thanks to Dr. KERR, Dr. PERERA and Mary Liz. Your compassion for and care of Pete during his four years of treatment greatly helped ease his journey. Also thank you to the special women (ie Nurses) of Victorial Hospital who helped him through his final week. Pete touched the lives of all who knew him! He will be sadly missed and fondly remembered. Cremation has taken place. Memorial visitation will be held in the Westview Funeral Chapel, 709 Wonderland Road North (2 blocks north of Oxford) on Thursday from 6: 00-9:00 p.m. as well as one hour prior to the memorial service.
