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.
