Obituary of Hale Fern Hemenway
Heaven gained another angel on December 31, 2021 at 11:11 PM when Hale Fern Hemenway passed away. He was a loving husband, father, papa, brother, uncle, and friend. He shared his vast wisdom with so many people and changed their lives for the better. Hale (Buster) was born in Barton, Vermont and grew up in Orleans, Vermont. He enjoyed playing soccer and basketball for Orleans High School. He then went on to Champlain College and was the first in his family to graduate with an Associates degree in Accounting. In his younger adult years he worked for Pratt & Whitney and Litton Industries before being transferred to Canton, Ohio where he worked for XCEL Mold and Machine, eventually becoming an owner. After 21 years he retired and moved to Florida. Hale enjoyed card playing, fishing, boating, softball, golf, putting puzzles together, sudoku, watching westerns and puttering around in his garage. He was known for his business savvy way of thinking by some and his jovial, good humored, competitive spirit that always showed with a smirk on his face by others. Hale was preceded in death by his parents, Fern (Jim) and Shirley Hemenway, and his sister Sandra Wentworth. He leaves behind his high school sweetheart and wife of 57 years, Sandy (Emmerson) Hemenway. His daughters Lisa Zickefoose (David), Allyson Race, and Julianne Litman (John).
