This may be a long shot, but if he had a son, could he be 65? There is a Raiford Hall listed on zabasearch (2002) as living in FL. Maybe it's his son. It shows a phone number. I think it's worth looking into. Good luck.

Sometimes the ages on those websites are not exactly right. It's still worth checking out. Sometimes, even the addresses are incorrect.

Have you called the cemetery where he is buried? Perhaps they will have more information on next of kin. Also, perhaps they can tell you, but I think they have to have a death certificate in OK to bury him there. They may be able to tell you where you can get a copy.
HALL, RAIFORD
TSGT US AIR FORCE
WORLD WAR II, KOREA
DATE OF BIRTH: 01/03/1918
DATE OF DEATH: 05/18/1979
BURIED AT: SECTION 10 SITE 2714
FT. GIBSON NATIONAL CEMETERY
1423 CEMETERY ROAD FORT GIBSON, OK 74434
(918) 478-2334

He also has WWII Enlistment papers listed on Ancestry. Perhaps some nice researcher with Ancestry can help you with that. If you want to see them yourself, most libraries now have Ancestry so you can call your local library, see if they do, then sign up to use their computer and check it out.
I also see they either have or had one listed in the Nevada City Directory. It doesn't say what year it is, but check it out when you get to the library.

Could this be him? Doesn't seem right to me. Year of birth 99. Widower. Sounds more like it could be a father than him.

The military enlistment is for the Army, and is a different guy. Surprisingly, there are quite a few Raiford Halls.

However, in that search I found his wife has also passed away and is buried beside him.

Name:Susie F Hall
Service Info.:TSGT US AIR FORCE
Birth Date:16 Feb 1918
Death Date:20 Jun 1991
Relation:Wife of Hall, Raiford
Interment Date:5 Jul 1991
Cemetery: Ft. Gibson National Cemetery
Cemetery Address:1423 Cemetery Road Fort Gibson, OK 74434
Buried At:Section 10 Site 2714

I agree with Susan... contact the cemetary, and they should have the name of the person who handled the arrangements, even if they won't give you contact info on them. Cemetary phone number is
Phone: 918-478-2334
Fax: 918-478-2661
Office Hours:
Monday thru Friday 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.

Ack, I had a moment of excitement when I found a family tree with his name, but when the document opened... Caddbuddy's the author, lol.

So let's see what we can find on Susie:
Susie's in the SS Death Index as just Susie, no middle initial. Since you have Ancestry access I won't post it. It shows she received her SS number in Oklahoma. Add that to the choice of the national cemetary in Oklahoma and that may be an indication the children live there.
There's a 1950 ship passenger list showing she arrived in San Francisco from Okinawa, Japan. (perhaps was visiting him on his R&R) Her birth place is listed as Munford, Alabama.

Last address and previous one before that:
Name: Susie F Hall
Address: 2182 N Pecos Rd, Las Vegas, Nevada 89115-0801 (1993)
[1821 Brand St #94, North Las Vegas, Nevada 89030-0801 (1991)]

Which matches an address for Raiford, also listed as 1993, so I had hopes this Raiford was the son, who inherited the property after her death in 1991 and that's why it's showing in 1993. So I searched the property records, and unfortunately it's a mobile home park where they rented space. The property has changed hands since that time, but there is a possibility they kept old rent records and may have information as to who collected her belongings and sold the trailer, if she owned it. It's currently named Sunrise Manor and the current owner/mailing address is:

SUNRISE TERRACE L L C
TARTAN SUNRISE L L C
c/o GORDON S. MEYER
49511 CANYON VIEW DR
PALM DESERT CA 92260-6783
(760) 773-2858

There's nothing listed in the probate court for either of them, nor any other court cases or recordings. The Las Vegas newspaper only gives obits back to 2008.

I found 1 Shirley Hall in Las Vegas, although odds are your relative married and has a different last name now. Without a birthdate, it's too common a name.
Shirley Hall
street address not available
Las Vegas, NV
Age: 65+
(760) 773-2858
