Hampton Mabry, Jr

September 15, 1943 — November 17, 2023

Santa Fe

Father Hampton Mabry, 80, died on November 17, 2023 in Santa Fe after a long battle with cancer. He was born on September 15, 1943 in Beaumont, Texas, the son of Hampton Mabry Sr. and Maude Page Walker Mabry. He is survived by his beloved wife of 29 years, Cha Foxhall Mabry and their sweet cat, Dulce.
In 1965, he received a BA in Broadcasting from the University of Houston. He spent 4 years teaching at St. Thomas School in Houston before entering seminary. He graduated with a Master's from the School of Theology of the University of the South in 1972. A year later, he was ordained an Episcopal priest. For the next 20 years, he served as a priest at various churches, among them as Associate Rector at Good Shepherd in Austin and Rector at Trinity Church in The Woodlands. In 1992, he transferred to become an Anglican priest.
In 1994, Fr. Hampton sensed a calling to become a hospice chaplain, which he did for the next 28 years. He always felt that his devotion to aid the dying came from the tragedy of his own mother dying when he was 3 years old. He worked for hospices in Houston and then for 10 years at Del Corazon Hospice here in Santa Fe.
Concurrently with these ministries, Hampton had a military career which spanned 26 years, both with the Texas Army National Guard and the Army Reserve. He served hospitals with the 807th Medical Command and went to Grafenvier in Bavaria for a year as a Post Chaplain.
It was in 2011 that he and his wife Cha moved to charming Santa Fe, a dream they had both held for years. They shared a love of nature and enjoyed hiking and taking trips to enjoy the beauty of New Mexico. They loved their home church, Holy Faith, and found beautiful worship and many friends there. They were both Oblates of the Pecos Benedictine Monastery and enjoyed wonderful retreats there. Both lovers of the performing arts, they appreciated the world class music in Santa Fe.
Funeral services will be announced at a later date. The family would like to thank Del Corazon Hospice and Hampton's devoted caregiver, Zabrina Bowers, for all their loving care. And also Church of the Holy Faith for being such a supportive and wonderful church family.
In lieu of flowers, please make a donation to Del Corazon Hospice.
