Tony was born July 29, 1946 in Artesia NM; the son of Henry Hall and Thelma Slater Hall. Tony married Loretta Jean Campanella in 1965 in Tijeras, NM. It's not like she had much choice, because he ran any boy out-of-town who showed interest in her as he was a State and Golden Gloves Boxing Champion. Other activities and accomplishments include: Member of St. Anthony Catholic Church, lifetime member of Knights of Columbus, Army veteran, served as President of the Artesia Bulldog Quarterback Club, and he coached Little League Baseball and Girls Softball for over 25 years. He worked from age 13 and he took pride in his work as he was the co-owner of H W Enterprises prior to retiring from Mack Energy Corporation as a completion supervisor in 2014. Tony deeply loved his wife and children, and he looked forward to family gatherings. He loved hunting and fishing especially with his boss and best buddy Mack Chase. He enjoyed playing cards and fantasy football and going dancing. He was a life-long Bulldogs and Cowboys fan. Most importantly, he loved God.
Survivors include: Loretta Hall, wife of the home; children include sons Antony Hall and wife Tish of Artesia, Gabriel Hall of Carlsbad, Jeremy Hall and wife Joanna of Artesia, and daughter Cecily Washington and husband Chris of San Antonio, Texas; grandchildren Kandese Green and husband Jake, Adrian Hall, Antony M. Hall, Jacob Rivera, Joshua Rivera, Victoria Hall, Sydney Hall, Maddox Hall, Sophia Washington, Xavier Washington, and Baby Washington; great-grand child Sage Green; brother Richard "Guy" Evans and wife Verna Nelson of Modesto, California. He was preceded in death by his father and mother; infant son Joseph Solomon; brothers David "Jerry" Hall and Thomas "Red" Hall.

To the Hall Family - Prayers to all of you and Tony's wide circle of sons and daughters in Artesia.
Mid-1990's...When I was attending Eastern New Mexico University with Jeremy Hall, Tony and his family were like my family away from home. We played D&D, played SpellFire, broke bread, cried, laughed. Tony always invited me into his home as if I was one of his sons. Tony and Loretta always checked my mental state - because college can take a toll on your mental health. I never had much time to be homesick because my "Parents in Artesia" (Tony and Loretta) were just a few hours away. May the Good Lord protect and heal y'all during this tragic time. Really going to miss you Tony -- All our love - Jaclyn and Chris Friedel
