Hugh B. Hall, Jr.
Hugh Barnett Hall, Jr., age 91, died at The Beacon in Gulf Breeze, Florida, on April 23, 2020. He was the son of Hugh Barnett and Sarah Hall and was born in Opelika, Alabama, on December 10, 1928. After graduation from Clift High School, where he played on the football team, he graduated from Northwestern University in Evanston, Illinois. He continued his education at Union Theological Seminary in New York City, where he later served as an instructor on the faculty. He was ordained as a Methodist minister and served a parish in Cannondale, CT, and in 1960 was ordained as an Episcopal minister in the Diocese of Washington, D.C. He served at All Saints, Oakley, Maryland, and was rector of Christ Church, Chaptico, Maryland, for fourteen years. In 1989 he left the Episcopal Church USA to establish St. John’s, a traditional Episcopal parish in Mechanicsville, Maryland, before coming to All Saints Anglican Episcopal Church in Pensacola, Florida, in 1992. He retired from All Saints in January of 2010 but continued as Rector Emeritus until his death.
Reverend Hall was preceded in death by his parents and brother Harry Hall. He is survived by his wife of 45 years, Suzanne Henderson Hall, and his children Hugh III (Sheryl), Elizabeth (Sam) Graves, Sally (Frank) Halstead, and Jennifer (Bryan) Turney. He is also survived by a sister, Sarah Scheufler; a brother, Roy (Annette), nine grandchildren (Sarah (James) Smith, Amy Arnold, Casey Vandor, Chloe Hall, Hugh IV, Hannah Hall, Amelia Grace Turney, Emmeline Turney, and Andrew Turney), and three great-grandchildren (Trey and Makayla Smith, and Autumn Arnold). A marriage to Elizabeth Moore in 1950 ended in divorce in 1973.

Funeral services will be conducted for family and friends via Zoom on Thursday, April 30 at 10:00 am (Central).  Please contact family or Waters & Hibbert Funeral Home for the information to join the Zoom service. Interment will be in the Glendale Memorial Nature Preserve in DeFuniak Springs, Florida.
If you have ever attended a funeral conducted by Reverend Hall, you know that to him the time after the funeral service for family and friends to share stories of their loved one was almost as important as the funeral service itself.  Because the family will not be able to speak to friends and family at the funeral, we will miss the comfort of hearing all of the ways Reverend Hall impacted those in his life.  We are asking everyone to please share your favorite memories and stories of Reverend Hall by leaving a message on the Waters & Hibbert website or by emailing Jennifer Turney ( [email protected] ).  Jennifer will compile all of the your memories and stories in a book for the family to have and cherish for years to come.

In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to Covenant Care (by check to 5041 N. 12th Avenue, Pensacola, FL 32504 or online at, Christ Church (by check to P.O. Box 8, Chaptico, MD 20621), or All Saints (by check to P.O. Box 4538, Pensacola, Florida 32507).
WATERS & HIBBERT FUNERAL HOME is in charge of arrangements.

As a nurse who cared for him for years, I found him to be an inspiration of love and kindness of the highest regard. He was so profoundly grateful for even the most minute act. What a testament of God's Love he is, and was, and now will always be for me. ~ Betsy Adams, GULF BREEZE, Florida
