Pastor Buford "B.J." Hall passed away peacefully at home on February 12, 2022, surrounded by loved ones who will continue to honor his legacy by living their lives to the fullest.
Born in Hicks, Louisiana on March 27, 1932. B.J. chased his dream of serving in the United States Army as well as a pretty girl names Mary Frances. Together, B.J. and Mary answered the call to ministry and led churches and many people to Jesus Christ in Utah and Texas for 52 years.
To those who knew him, B.J. lived by the verse Philippians 4:19 "But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus" and always sang "Victory in Jesus" louder than anyone present. It was the anthem, sung by his family around him, that brought peace in his last moments, joyfully ushering him to meet Christ.
B.J. is preceded in death by his three brothers and sister as well as two daughters, Debbie and Vicki, and a granddaughter, Tiffany. He is survived by his wife Mary of 69 years, his son Bubba (wife Syl) Hall from Seadrift, daughter Donna (husband Kenneth) Musick of San Antonio, and daughter C.J. (husband Dennis) Dumale of Honolulu. The love of his eleven grandchildren and eighteen great grandchildren abounds.
B.J.'s memorial service will be held at Vanderbilt Baptist Church, 167 Victoria Street, Vanderbilt, Texas on Wednesday, February 16th at 11:00 am.
Donations may be made to the Vanderbilt Baptist Church Building Fund in honor of Pastor B.J. Hall. Condolences may be sent to Mary Hall at P.O. Box 113 Seadrift, TX 77983
Services have been entrusted to Russell Todish of Slavik Funeral Home, 209 N. Allen St. Edna, TX 77957, 361-782-2152.
