Maurice B Hall, of Lubbock, was called home by our sweet Lord on Friday, December 2, 2022.
Maurice was a husband, a father, a decorated Vietnam Veteran, and an inspiration to so many. He inspired others through his strong faith in God, his walk with Jesus, his enduring love for his family, and his zeal for living life.
Originally from Louisiana, Maurice was born on February 22, 1943, to Ralph and Dessia Hall. He and his wife, Peggy, met when they were both in high school, and later moved to Lubbock where they married. Maurice attended Texas Tech University and worked for Simmons Machine (later renamed Simmons Pump) before serving in Vietnam. Severely injured in battle, he returned to Lubbock, where he and Peggy began to plan a family.
They adopted their 2 children, Blake and Brandi, eight years apart. Their strong family bond produced countless memories, while taking many family vacations – most of which were spent alongside Peggy’s mom and dad. When their kids grew up, Maurice’s love of the lake was a catalyst for creating new family memories at their lake house. He later retired from Simmons Pump after 43 years of dedicated work.
His other life passions included watching Tom Landry’s Dallas Cowboys and attending Texas Tech home football games with Blake, watching Dallas Mavericks games with Brandi, and also being active in church weekly with Peggy. In addition, for over 50 years, he was a Master Mason, a Khiva Shriner, and involved in Scottish Rite.
Maurice carried his tremendous faith to his last hours, as he continued to sing and give praise to the Lord right up until God’s angels brought him home to Heaven.
He is survived by his lifelong love, Peggy, and his adoring children, Blake and Brandi. He is also survived by his sister, Nita.
Visitation will be at Lake Ridge Chapel this Wednesday, from 6:30 pm to 8:30 pm. Funeral Services will be held at Indiana Avenue Baptist Church this Thursday, at 10:00 am. Please visit this page for a broadcasting schedule, floral purchasing, and an area to share stories of Mr. Hall with his family.
