Ed Hale

KEENE — Ed Hale liked challenges. He met them with courage and grace.

A World War II veteran, he served in the Pacific Theater. An intellectual, he had a bachelor’s degree in English from Dartmouth College, a master’s degree in journalism from Columbia University, and a Ph.D. in political science from the State University of New York at Albany.

A journalist, he wrote for the Buffalo Evening News, won a Harvard Nieman Fellowship, owned and edited The Lake Placid News, and ended his career covering the Adirondacks for the Watertown Daily Times. An outdoorsman, he climbed the 46 Adirondack High Peaks — some of them countless times — and worked as a telemark ski instructor at Whiteface Mountain in his later years.

Above all, he was committed to his family. He was married to Barbara Jane Messer for 67 years, their marriage ending only with her death, at age 90, in 2015. They knew each other since they were 4 years old and were a nation of two. They raised three daughters — Stephanie Jane, Melissa Ann, and Heather Elizabeth — to be strong, independent, and thoughtful women. The Hales were deeply involved in the lives of their grandchildren, loving each for who they were.
