February 26, 1923 – January 12, 2024

It is with great sadness that we relate the passing of Mr. Wesley Hall on January 12, 2024.

Throughout his career and life, Wes contributed greatly not only to the Country, but to Stanislaus County and the retirees he represented as a member of RESCO, CRCEA and the StanCERA Board of Retirement.

Wes began early in life as a leader. He was a proud World War II Veteran who aspired to joining a combat unit, fighting for the Country. The Army, however, had other ideas when they learned that Wes had a background in data processing and decided to put his mental talents to use instead.

After the war, Wes began working for Stanislaus County. He ultimately became an administrator at the Stanislaus County Hospital as well as the Public Health Department.

One of Wes’ many achievements was his contributions as a volunteer to several organizations. Perhaps the first was the Stanislaus County Employees Federal Credit Union which he began volunteering for as far back as 1949. You may now recognize this organization as Valley First Credit Union. Wes continued as a Board member from 1957 and served 35 years as Chairman of the Board. Currently, Valley First has branches in Modesto, Oakdale, Ceres, Turlock and Tracy, California.

In May 1969, Wes was one of the founding fathers of the Stanislaus County Retired Employees’ Association, which we now call RESCO. Since its founding, he has served as a board member and as President. He was named as Director Emeritus of RESCO in 2009 and continued in that capacity until his death. Wes was also instrumental in serving our retirees through the statewide California Retired County Employees Association (CRCEA).

Wes also served as a Trustee on the Stanislaus County Board of Retirement (StanCERA BOR) from 1985 through 2009. He was honored on January 9, 2008, in a resolution by that Board naming the StanCERA Board Room the “Wesley W. Hall Board Room”.

In 2023, in honor of Wes’, the Wesley Hall Honorary Scholarship at California State University, Stanislaus was established by RESCO. The goal of the Scholarship is not only to honor him, but to encourage students to obtain a solid education and remain in and serve our community and to continue Wes’ extraordinary legacy.

Wes will be dearly missed and was such a fine example of someone who committed their entire life to the well-being of employees and retirees of Stanislaus County.
