From the NAFA Facebook Page

"It is with the deepest sorrow that we announce the passing of NAFA founder Hal Webster. Hal was the driving force in starting NAFA and we are eternally grateful to him and his contributions to North American Falconry. Please keep Hal and his family and friends in your thoughts and prayers.

From Greg Thomas:

'Falconry and NAFA have lost one of our best.
I awakened to the sad news that Hal Webster, Sr. passed last night. He was just over 99 years and 3 months old.

He was my dear friend for over 53 years. So much could be said of his contributions to our sport and this organization.' "
