Beaumont, TX

Cecelia Dee “Chi Chi” Erickson of Beaumont, Texas, went to be home with her Lord and Savior Jesus Christ on February 14, 2024. Chi Chi was born on August 18, 1941, in Des Moines, Iowa. She was the oldest of five children of loving parents, Gene and Sue Cook. While Gene served in the Air Force, the Cooks frequently moved all over the country. Chi Chi attended 13 schools in 12 years. She was able to easily make friends and find fun in whatever new place they landed. She developed epilepsy when she was around 13 years old but tried never to let that slow her down or interfere with life. In high school, she enjoyed being on the cheerleading squad and going to all the dances. She often helped look out for her younger siblings and enjoyed making memories with them.Chi Chi was a stay-at-home mom throughout her adult life, though she was a teacher’s aide for a couple of years and also had formal beautician training. She spent the bulk of her life caring for her beloved children, Kris and Jeff, and maintaining the books for her and her husband Ron’s trucking company. Chi Chi loved to craft, read, play games and above all enjoy time with her family. She loved babysitting her grandchildren, Nicole and Kimmi, and having grand adventures with them. Chi Chi made sure to share the love of Jesus, which she discovered in her teenage years, with all she met. Her deepest friendships and her family relationships were defined by the love of Christ which flowed through her. Chi Chi had a knack for being generous even when she had little, and for being excited with others even if she didn’t completely understand what they were excited about. She always wanted the very best for those she loved. Chi Chi was preceded in death by her parents, Gene and Sue Cook; her husband, Ron Erickson; and her brother-in-law, Roger Zastrow. She is survived by her sisters, Carol Elliot (Don), Diane Zastrow, Debbie Blake (Michael); her brother, Buddy Cook (Cheryl); her children, Kris Ingram and Jeff Baldon; her grandchildren, Kimmi and Aaron Haase and Nicole Morgan; and multiple nieces, nephews, great-nieces, and great-nephews and cousins.

Beaumont, TX

"Charles Kenneth Hall, 68, of Bridge City, Texas passed away on February 7, 2024 at CHRISTUS St. Elizabeth Hospital in Beaumont, Texas. Memorial services will be at 11:00 am, Saturday, February 24 at Good Shepherd Lutheran Church in Bridge City, Texas. Officiating will be Pastor Paul Zoch. Visitation will be from 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm on Friday, February 23 at Claybar Funeral Home in Bridge City. Charles was born in Columbus, Ohio on September 21, 1955 to Donald Earl Hall, Jr. and Iva Lois (Hammond) Hall. Charles was a graduate of Bellaire High School, Bellaire, Texas and a graduate of Southwest Texas University (Texas State University), San Marcos, Texas. He worked for several companies before he found his niche in the area that interested him. He enjoyed offshore and onshore seismic surveying and worked for Marine Technical Services (MTS) in Stafford, Texas on a Geophysical Survey boat followed by John E. Chance and Associates (acquired by Fugro Geoservices), Lafayette, La. He spent much time on the water in the Gulf of Mexico as well as many freezing winters in Prudhoe Bay, Alaska. He worked in the seismic business for nearly forty years before retiring. He was proud to be known as a “Doodlebugger” along with his fellow rowdy Doodlebuggers. Charles met his wife, Ann, when she worked as a temp for MTS and they married nearly 5 years later. Charles was always there to help with any fixit jobs for his family, friends or church. Whatever he did not already know how to fix, he would research thoroughly and learn how to fix it – this started long before you could “Google” it. He loved spending time with his family, especially his three wonderful grandchildren, who knew him as “Pops”. He could talk forever to his buddies about cars and boats. He loved motorcycles, classic rock music (especially Tom Petty and ZZ Top), classic GM cars (especially corvettes), and radio-controlled airplanes. He enjoyed watching Nascar on television every weekend – new races or the old, old ones. On his last vacation, he and Ann went to Indianapolis for a tour of the Indy 500 raceway – it was exciting to stand on that track. Charles and Ann loved going on cruises with their friends, visiting other countries (traveling in general), and attending music concerts (which was strongly “encouraged” by Ann). Pastor Paul Zoch said he was going to truly miss all of the help that Charles provided to the church for the parade floats and any building project that was going on. His array of tools was greatly appreciated as well as his ability to use them. Charles is preceded in death by his parents, Iva Lois and Donald Hall, Jr. of Houston, Texas, grandparents Pearl and Allison Hammond of Angleton, Texas, and Millicent Hall, Sarah Hall, and Donald Hall, Sr. of Columbus, Ohio. He is survived by Celia Ann (McCallum) Hall, his loving wife of 38 years of Bridge City, his son William Charles Hall and his wife Desiree of Bridge City, his daughter Evangeline Marie Hall Jowell and her husband Houston of Houston; grandchildren – Lauren Scott, Isaac Hall, Blaire Hall; three brothers Allison Hall of College Station, Wesley and his wife Karen Hall of College Station, Craig Hall of New Braunfels; sister-in-law Jeanne Bulnes of Houston, brothers-in-law Billy McCallum, Jr. of San Augustine and Bryan McCallum of Carthage; numerous cousins, nieces and nephews; and other loving family and friends. In lieu of flowers, please make memorials to Good Shepherd Lutheran Church, Bridge City, The American Cancer Society or The Alzheimer’s Association."

Born in Marlow, Oklahoma on April 10, 1933, he was the son of Roscoe and Ethel Winkler. Don’s family moved to Texas shortly after he was born. His father died when he was 2, followed by his mother when he was 7. He was raised in the Odd Fellows Orphanage in Corsicana, Texas. Don left at 19 after graduating High School and went on to find a job laying crude oil pipe for a year, before deciding to enlist in the United States Marine Corps. This defined the rest of his life. After completing his hitch with the Marines, Don attended Tarlton State College in Stephenville, Texas. He then finished his bachelor’s degree in business at North Texas State in Denton, Texas. Don was working in the insurance industry when he re-enlisted in the Marine Corps as a Reserve. He remained in the Marine Corps Reserve for the vast part of his remaining life, retiring with the rank of Lt. Colonel. Following the 9/11 attacks in 2001, Don contacted the Marine Corps, asking to return to duty. Though he was persistent in defending his country, they declined. Don left the insurance industry in the 1960’s, joining the newly created Federal Sky Marshals program. After several years, he was hired as a special agent for U.S. Customs. Don worked smuggling cases, primarily drugs in the early years, then progressing into illegal weapons and arms. He worked undercover, sometimes stretching out over a year. Don retired from federal service in 1984. He and his wife, Nell, then moved to Groves, Texas where they went to work for her cousin, Bruce Thompson, at Market Basket. There, Don created a comprehensive loss prevention department. Don and Nell remained in the same house they’d originally purchased in Groves until it became necessary for both to move to assisted living facilities. Don’s beloved Nell preceded him in death in 2019. His legacy will live on through those who love him and he will be missed terribly."
