& Virginia Hall: (7-31-19 nz) HPROA member Leonard Ignas, aka Iggy, has
over the years become friends with Harry as they lived nearby.
Recently Iggy, who had not had any recent contact with Harry and
Virginia, was able to get a response at their door. Iggy learned
that Harry and Virginia still resided in their home in the Meyerland area with
24-7 caregivers. They have two daughters and one
granddaughter, who is able to check by each day and is active in their health
care and welfare. Harry is 95 and Virginia is 93, with both suffering from
dementia and age related issues. Harry came out of academy class
#1 in 1948. He worked homicide for a number of years and retired
in 1968, going to work immediately for Dr. Joe at the Medical Examiner's
office. He was always quick on the wit and just a great guy to
work with on our murder scenes. He served in the military reserve,
I believe Navy. He retired not only from the city, but also the
county and the military. Thanks to Iggy for this update and may the good lord
continue to be with Virginia and Harry.
