HALL, WILLIAM TIP, JR. (1922–1999).William Tip Hall, Jr., teacher, minister, and state legislator, son of William Tip Hall and Mamie Estelle (Griffin) Hall, was born in Ennis, Texas, on August 5, 1922. Hall had three sisters—Nettie, Dixie Nell, and Jessie Lee. On July 31, 1943, he married Dorothy Rose Buchanan; they had six children.

Hall graduated from Denton High School and Texas A&M University. During World War II he served as an artillery captain. Upon returning from the war, he worked as a math teacher and a dairy farmer in Denton County. By the early 1950s he also entered into his lifelong vocation of preaching, initially in the Denton County communities of Little Elm and then Ponder. In 1971 he became the minister at the Church of Christ in Lake Dallas in Denton County and held that position for the remainder of his life.

He was elected to the House of the Sixty-fifth Texas Legislature as a Democrat from Disrict 25 (Denton County) in 1978 and served from 1978 to 1981 and again from 1983 to 1985. As a member of the legislature, Hall was especially concerned with addressing and preventing child abuse and served on separate committees dedicated to that issue in 1978, 1979, and 1983. In addition to serving as a legislator, he was on the board of directors for the School Physical Activity and Nutrition Survey (SPAN) as well as CoServ Electric, a non-profit utility cooperative. He served as a director on the board for CoServ for ten years, and a scholarship program was subsequently named in his honor. Hall also served as chairman of the board for the Denton County Co-Op, as well as president of the Denton County Retired Teachers Association. He died in Lake Dallas on February 5, 1999, and was buried in Roselawn Memorial Park in Denton.
