September 17, 1986 - September 6, 2023

Cordera Antwaun Hall, 36, of Lynchburg who was born to the late Ramona Mae Hall and Mark Anthony Madison on September 17,1986 unexpectedly passed away on September 6, 2023.

In addition to his mother, he was preceded in death by his maternal grandfather, Raymond Hall Jr, (Junebug) and an infant Uncle, Garry Ray Hall.

He leaves to cherish his memories his maternal grandmother, Alice Hall (who raised him); two daughters, Kaniyah and Asiana Hall; two brothers, Deiante Hall of Orlando, FL and Nico Hall, Lynchburg, Va.; two aunts, Sandra Allen (Larry) Lynchburg, Va., Daphane Bowman of Irmo, SC and Tammy Martin of Hurt, Va.; three uncles, Kenneth Hall, Lynchburg, Va., Karl Martin (Irene), of Altavista, Va. and Leon Hunt of Hurt, Va.; four nieces, Saniyah Hall, Nadia Hall, Myangel Hall, Nia Hall; five nephews, Andre Hall, Darius Hall, Nico Jr., Dominic and Savion Hall. He also leaves to mourn his loss seven great uncles, five great aunts, a special group of first cousins who loved him very much as if he was a brother (Kiante, Infinity, Kendrick, Demond, Shanice, Lamesha, Zelda and Aaliyah) and a host of loving cousins, skateboard buddies and special friends.

Cord, as he was affectionately called, grew up in Lynchburg and attended Lynchburg City schools and received his diploma from Lexington County schools. He attended Hills Creek Baptist Church as a young boy along with his brothers with his granny faithfully and sang in the youth choir and started to develop a love for the drums.

Cord sometimes found himself facing life’s trials and many setbacks, but he always managed to bounce back with a determination to conquer it head on. Cord was no stranger to hard work, and worked most recently in construction, security, and lawn care. He was gifted with a multitude of talents from an early age including playing the drums and keyboard and he wrote and performed his music. He ruled the streets with his skateboarding skills, fearless spirit, and signature braided beard. No matter what the situation was, he always greeted you with a huge smile, his view on life and laughter on every occasion. He was so loved by all of the kids. He will be greatly missed and forever in our hearts. Rest in Peace Cord, until we meet again.


The Lord is close to the broken hearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit. The righteous person may have many troubles, but the Lord delivers him from them all: he protects all his bones, not one of them will be broken. Psalms 34:18-20 NKJV
