Walter Lee Hall Jr.

November 9, 1939June 29, 2020

Walter Lee Hall, Jr., 80, of Lake Charles, LA, passed away on Monday, June 29, 2020.

Walter was born on November 9, 1939, in Clover, South Carolina, to Walter Lee Hall, Sr. and Willie Mae Hall. Walter possessed a servant's heart; he served in the U.S. Air Force for 3-1/2 years. After receiving an honorable discharge, he made Lake Charles his home and took employment with Sasol, where he retired after 35 years after a distinguished career as a Maintenance Supervisor.

As a man of faith, he found joy in selflessly helping others, often donating his time and many talents to those in need. He was skilled in carpentry and construction and often volunteered helping the elderly, fixing homes through The Oprah Winfrey Foundation and Habitat for Humanity. In his off time, he enjoyed the excitement found watching his favorite jockeys at Delta Downs Racetrack.

He was preceded in death by his parents; a sister; Mary Lee Hall; and a nephew, Terry Hall. Those left to cherish his memory are his children: Kenneth (Vanessa) Hall, Mark Hall, Priscilla (Gary) Marshall, Walter (Loyce) Hall III, Tammey (Jonathan) Cook, Anita (Julien) Barker, Walter (Karla) Hall, Jr. He also leaves to cherish his memory twenty grandchildren; twenty-one great-grandchildren; an aunt, Barbara Jefferies; a brother, Donald Lawrence; his endearing friend of 23 years, Gladys Hardin; and his adopted family, the Barnes.

The family will welcome friends to the New Emmanuel Baptist Church starting at 8 a.m. on Saturday, July 4, 2020. Funeral services will begin at 10 a.m. and will be led by Rev. Roland Mouton with burial to follow at Combre Memorial Park.

To the Hall Family,

My heart goes out to your family. I am sorry to hear of your loss. Your Dad’s smile was always comforting growing up and he was always so nice. I see by his legacy of children and grandchildren he was truly admired and loved. Enjoy the memories and continue to cherish the love that you all shared with him!

My deepest sympathy to the family of Walter Hall. Praying strength and comfort for you all at this difficult time. I met Walter when I was hired at Vista (Sasol) in 1986 and we became good friends. Walter was one of those persons that if he could help you in anyway, he was willing to do so. He had a big heart. I'm going to miss my ole friend but one day we will meet again. Rest in Heaven Walter. Love You

I met Walter when I began working at Sasol (then Vista), in 1987. He was something else. I read earlier that he had a servants heart, that couldn't be a truer statement. I watched him many times reach out to help many people who didn't have the means and take care of things for them. He was gruff on the outside but had a heart of gold. After his retirement I ran into him many times at Lowe's, he was always doing a little job for someone....he was a jack of all trades! You will be missed Walter!!!

May the Lord bless you and keep you
May the Lord make His face to shine upon you and be gracious to you
May the Lord lift up His countenance upon you and give you peace....Num 6:24-26

Prayers for the family..

“Come unto me, all who are weary and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls.”
Walter; the time has come for you to rest with the Lord and gain the rewards of a life well lived, and for the many good things you’ve done. Rest in the Mighty Arms of your Lord and Saviour.
Much Love
Ford and DeShields Families
