Marlon Hall

February 27, 1952 - August 27, 2018

Marlon Hall

Marlon Thomas Hall, 66, of Kountze, died Monday, August 27, 2018. He was born on February 27, 1952, in Beaumont, to Ruby and Paul Hall. Marlon graduated in 1970 from French High School.

Survivors include his wife of forty-eight years, Rose Hall; and daughters, Rochelle King and her husband, Dallas and their daughters, Heather and Kelsey; Kimberly Powell and her husband, Mike and their sons, Cody and Logan; Jennifer Ross and her husband, Matt and their sons, Jonathan, Ryan and Dalton; Karen Wallace and her daughters, Willow and Trinity, and their fathers, Ian Wallace and Waylon Levins; Angela Hall and her husband, John Orebaugh and their son, Ozzy; and sister, Carol Ann Mazzola of Colorado Springs, Colorado.

Marlon is preceded in death by his parents and his brother, James Nathan Hall.

Marlon was a genuine John Wayne, a man with true grit and a soft and caring heart for his girls, especially Rose, his high school sweetheart, his “dream and burning desire.”

He was a humble man, one whom all could aspire to be. His family never knew a man who worked harder for the ones he loved, a generous Christian man who loved the Lord, a true role model for all who had the privilege to know him.

A gathering of Mr. Hall’s family and friends will be from 5:00 p.m. until 8:00 p.m., Thursday, August 30, 2018, at Crestwood Baptist Church, 1150 Highway 69 South, Lumberton.

    My sister called me today to let me know that Marlon had passed away. I was saddened to hear this. I met Marlon through a mutual friend back in the mid 60's and we became friends. He became a part of a group of us who loved playing sandlot baseball and football. He was always up for a game. Most of us went to French High so we stayed in touch a lot. Like all of us we graduate, get jobs,, have families and move on.. More often than not we tend to lose touch with friends as we go through life. I remember Marlon as a really good guy who was a lot of fun and a good friend. I know he will be missed. My deepest heartfelt sympathy and condolences to his wife and family. I was very fortunate to have known him . Rest easy, my friend..

    Dearest Rose and family,
    There are not enough words to describe what a Fine man Marlon was. All of the kind words above , in the other comments are so very true. I have always admired him and y’alls relationship in high school,, and your wonderful story book marriage. I will truly miss him and just know that the world is a much worse place without Marlon in it.
    Very much sadness ,

    Rose and Family,
    This news broke our hearts.
    I met Marlon when he first started working on his own as a contractor but he became much more than a contractor over the past 19-years. He was a good friend. I remember Marlon in our living room, playing his guitar as we sang unto the Lord.
    We are really heartbroken but there is some comfort imagining he is just singing away right now. It was a blessing to have known him.
    I can only imagine….
    Our prayers go out to you and yours.
    Frank and Andra

    Dear Mrs. Hall, I only met your husband once at work we were talking about analyzers and he gave me his card and told me if I had questions I could contact him. He seemed very kind. I lost my dearest friends- my in-laws- with in the past 5 years and I am still honoring them with my grief. May the Peace of our Lord Comfort you and your family.

    I am so sorry for your loss. I met Marlon while working in Port Neches in 2015. He was always so kind and cheerful....and always smiling. He was happy to help me as a new engineer when I had questions on analyzers. We always knew when he was at the plant because he would whistle happily through the hallways. What a great man. I was so sad to hear of his passing. I am thinking of y'all and praying for your family.

    Andrew and I are so saddened by this sudden loss. I rejoice that we will see each other again. I have literally known Marlon all of my life as our parents were very good friends, living just blocks apart. I had not seen him for many years until several years ago when we crossed paths again. He visited my mother once when she was in assisted living and that just made her day. I am praying sincerely for you Rose and all of your family. It is a true blessing to me to hear these friends talk of his love for the Lord. God's comfort to you in this sad time and I pray all the wonderful memories will come flooding back so often. Sincerely in Christ's love,

    Marlon and Rose rode with Texas Trail Challenge Club where they always offered to help anyone who needed it.
    They shared their smiles, their knowledge, their faith and their talents. Their music was inspiring and Marlon donated several beautiful pieces of leather work to the club. His kindness and humble spirit will be greatly missed. Our thoughts and prayers are with Rose and all of the family for this tremendous loss. We hope that God's peace and comfort will lift you up during this sad time.

    To MRs. Rose Hall and your family, My truly heartfelt condolences. I worked with Marlon for several years and he was one of the few that always had smile and a handshake no matter how our day was going. He always took the time to ask how my wife was doing after her stroke and asked how I was doing after she passed away. That left an impression on me of his kind heart. He will truly be missed in a lot of ways and i pray for your strength during this time. Never look down and face the sky because he is looking at you from heaven. Paying for you. and your family.
