John had a lifelong career in bus driving, and retired from Santa Fe Trail Bus System.
He was passionate about his love and relationship with Jesus Christ his Lord. He was an amazing husband to the love of his life for 48 years. He enjoyed spending endless time with his children and grandchildren. John truly was the best example of what a Man of God should like and be. He was the best husband, father, papos, and friend that anyone could ask for. He also enjoyed biking and riding his motorcycle. John was part of many praise and worship teams over the years. He was always willing to be used by God in any way possible. Mr. Hall is survived by his wife of 48 years, Peggy Hall; daughter, Rachel Martinez (Elvin); sons, Pastor John Hall (Desiree) and Daniel Hall (Claudia); grandchildren, John, Zechariah, Hezekiah, Israel and Penny Hall, Sarah and Angel Martinez, and Samara Avitia; brother-in-law, Gene Montoya; sisters-in-law; Helen Zamora, Adelaida Ortiz, Epimenia Sanchez (Joe), Georgina Romero and many nieces and nephews. He is gone, but not forgotten. God has you in his keeping and we have you in our hearts. We all know that you are in Heaven right now, and walking with Jesus on the streets paved with gold. The One that you talked and sang about all these years is now holding you for all eternity. You have finished your race and now Heaven is your reward. We will walk in the ways of God and always keep God in the center of everything we do, just like you wanted us to.
