David Vordal Hallett was born on September 25, 1929 to Lawrence and Hazel (Vordal) Hallett in Minneapolis, MN. He attended Minneapolis South High School. After graduation, he worked for multiple dairy companies delivering milk. On October 25, 1947, he was married to his wife, Helen Williams. In 1958, they moved to Warroad when he purchased Lake of the Woods Dairy where he continued to work with dairy products. This included bottling milk under his own label for several years and then delivering Land O’ Lakes products. He delivered these products door-to-door until 1982. In 1992 David retired.
David loved fishing, golfing, and house boats. He owned a house at the Northwest Angle for many years, and loved to spend as much time there as possible. He loved to travel and visited all the states except Alaska.
For many winters, he and Helen would go south. David was a member of the Warroad City Council and a member of the Knights of Columbus at St. Mary’s. He was a very giving, caring, and generous man. He liked sports and staying active, especially swimming, which he did every morning. He enjoyed watching his children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren in all their activities no matter what they were.
David is survived by his wife Helen of 70 years; children Michael Hallett, David (Candy) Hallett, Jeff (Lynn) Hallett, and Ann (John) Stoskopf; grandchildren Sarah (Paul) Borchert, Zach (Kailee) Hallett, Amy (Ben) Tesmer, Chrissy (Andy) McNair, Gabe Hallett, Patrick (Rachel) Stoskopf, and Savanna Hallett. He is also survived by 15 great grandchildren.
