Former Fenton businessman dies unexpectedly - Fenton Tri County Times

Tuesday, April 18, 2017

The Golden Rule was always important to Jim Hall, 52, well-known local businessman, who passed away unexpectedly on Friday, April 14 at Beaumont Hospital in Royal Oak.      The former owner of Hall Chrysler Jeep Dodge Ram in Fenton, Hall sold the business he had owned since 2005 to LaFontaine Automotive Group 10 months ago.  He worked closely with his brother, Tim Hall, who served as the dealership’s  manager, building a successful dealership. Together, along with staff, they earned numerous awards for customer satisfaction and service.      Hall was always proud of his Catholic upbringing, which included education at Birmingham Brother Rice High School, and an active faith life at Holy Family Catholic Church in Grand Blanc. He believed strongly in treating others the way he wanted to be treated.      He  was also a dedicated family man, enjoying time spent with his wife, Jennifer, and daughters Lindsay, Ashley and Lauren. In fact, it was his love and pride for his family that made the purchase of the local Chrysler dealership possible 12 years ago.       “The owner already had a deal and a deposit from another guy interested in buying the...

Tom Hayden, Civil Rights and Antiwar Activist Turned Lawmaker, Dies at 76 - New York Times

Monday, October 24, 2016

I get re-elected,” Mr. Hayden told The Globe. “To me, that’s the bottom line. The issues persons like myself are working on are modern, workplace, neighborhood issues.”Thomas Emmet Hayden was born in Royal Oak, Mich., on Dec. 11, 1939, the only child of John Hayden, an accountant, and the former Genevieve Garity, both Irish Catholics. His parents divorced, and Tom was raised by his mother, a film librarian.He attended a parish school. The pastor was the Rev. Charles Coughlin, the anti-Semitic radio priest of the 1930s and a right-wing foe of the New Deal.At Dondero High School in Royal Oak, Mr. Hayden was editor of the student newspaper. His final editorial before graduation in 1957 almost cost him his diploma. In his exhortation to old-fashioned patriotism, he encrypted, in the first letter of each paragraph, an acrostic for “Go to hell.”His turn to radical politics began at the University of Michigan at Ann Arbor, where he was inspired by student protests against the anti-Communist witch hunts of the House Un-American Activities Committee and by lunch counter sit-ins by black students in Greensboro, N.C. In the summer of 1960, he met Dr. King in California, and he soon joined sit-in protests and voter registration drives in the South.Perceiving a need for a national student organization to coordinate civil rights projects around the country, he joined 35 like-minded activists at Ann Arbor in 1960 and formed Students for a Democratic Society. He also became editor of the campus newspaper, The Michigan Daily. He earned a bachelor’s degree in sociology at Michigan in 1961 and did graduate work there in 1962 and 1963.His 1961 marriage to Sandra Cason, a civil rights worker, ended after two years. He met Ms. Fonda at an antiwar rally. They were married in 1973 and had a son, Troy Garity. Ms. Fonda had a daughter, Vanessa, by her former marriage to the film director Roger Vadim. Mr. Hayden and Ms. Fonda divorced in 1990. He married Ms. Williams, a Canadian actress, in 1993. They adopted a son, Liam. Along with his wife, Mr. Hayden is survived by the three children.In 1961, Mr. Hayden joined the Freedom Riders on interstate buses in the South, challenging authorities who refused to enforce the Supreme Court’s rulings banning segregation on public buses. His jailhouse draft of what became the 25,000-word S.D.S. manifesto was debated, revised and formally adopted at the organization’s first convention, in Port Huron, Mich., in 1962.“We are people of this generation,” it began, “bred in at least modest comfort, housed now in universities, looking uncomfortably to the world we inherit.” It did not recommend specific programs but attacked the arms race, racial discrimination, bureaucracy and apathy in the face of poverty, and it called for “participatory democracy” and a society based on “fraternity,” “honesty” and “brotherhood.”Mr. Hayden was elected president...
