Norwood L. “Buck” Hall, 79, passed away on August 23, 2021. Buck was born on December 6, 1941 in Cassatt, SC to the late Norwood C. Hall and Pauline Young Hall. He was married to Eleanor Clayton Hall for 58 years.
Buck was a member of Camden First Baptist Church for over 40 years and belonged to Doug Wyant’s Sunday School class. He served the church as a deacon and a president of Young at Heart. Over the years, Buck showed his concern for young people by volunteering as a Guardian ad Litem, coaching recreational league football, working as a Shriner, and helping sponsor banquets for PAL’s disabled baseball team.
Buck served six years in the National Guard and was a member of American Legion Post 17. He greatly enjoyed his 36 years of working as a mechanic at DuPont and was fortunate enough to be named a finalist for South Carolina Textile Citizen of the Year in 1988.
Sports played a huge part in Buck’s life as he was a member of two state championship teams in high school: 1957 Midway High basketball and 1957 Camden High football. He was a die hard South Carolina Gamecock fan and enjoyed playing golf with his friends.
Buck had a kind and generous heart and never met a stranger. He loved his family, his in-laws, and his many aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, and cousins. In addition to his wife, Buck is survived by his son Scott Hall (Myra), granddaughter Miranda, sister Charlotte Fowler, many relatives, and a multitude of friends. He was predeceased by his parents and his sister Janet Pratt.
A funeral service for Buck will be held at 11:00 am on Saturday, August 28 at Camden First Baptist Church. Burial will follow at Quaker Cemetery. Reverend Phillip Gerrald will officiate. The family requests masks to be worn during the service. Memorials may be made to the benevolent fund of Camden FBC or a charity of one’s choice.
