Harold S. (Hal) Dumler, 66, of Los Angeles, CA passed away on June 22, 2018.

Hal was born in Russell, KS on February 27, 1952, to Harold L. and Faith L. (Seeley) Dumler. He attended school in Russell, was active in the music program, and participated in sports (basketball in particular). He graduated from Russell High School as class president in 1970. He attended the University of Kansas, was a member of Delta Upsilon Fraternity, and graduated in 1975, with a degree in general studies.

Hal was employed in the banking industry initially in Topeka, KS. He then worked for a small bank in Colorado Springs, CO. He continued in the financial industry working in Denver, CO for the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC), San Francisco, CA for the California Department of Insurance, and Dallas, TX as a loan officer for a mortgage company. In 2001, he moved to Los Angeles to be closer to his brothers, and became interested in work with clients in drug and alcohol recovery. He eventually became a recovery centerís administrator. Hal worked vigorously in this business and found it appealed to himas it addressed his desire to help others. He continued to work at the center until medical impairments caused disabilities that prevented him working.

Hal loved fine food and was an extremely talented cook. His Bolognese sauce was phenomenal and he was never happier than when he worked in the kitchen. He greatly enjoyed talking about food, exchanging recipes, experimenting with new cooking techniques, and eating out both in fine restaurants and local dives.
Hal is survived by his daughter, Jessica of Topeka, KS; brothers Earle (Ray) of Los Angeles, CA and Brian of Glendale, CA; nephews Chris Dumler (Becky) of Santa Monica, CA, and Kale (Yvette) of Tehachapi, CA; and niece Katie Cook (Aaron) of Newport Beach, CA.
