Obituary

William “Bill” Halsey passed away peacefully in his sleep the morning of October 1st, 2020 after fighting a long illness in Loveland, Colorado. He was 69 years old. Bill was born on January 21st, 1951 in Albuquerque, New Mexico. He grew up in Lafayette, Colorado and spent most of his life in Boulder County. He worked for over 30 years in quality control management for Centerline Circuits, and in later years for Advanced Circuits, Magnelab, and Sound Surgical before retirement. Bill was very active in Alcoholics Anonymous and Al-Anon, and was able to celebrate 32 years of sobriety. He cared very deeply for others, and his humble mentorship helped innumerable individuals. He worked the program everyday and gave his undying support to anyone who was needing help and guidance in their sobriety. Bill had dedicated several years of his life as a martial artist practicing the art of KunTao Silat under renowned and master trainers. He had fond memories of getting to spar with highly skilled practitioners, along with building a brotherhood that turned into a lifetime of friendships. Bill’s greatest joy was his time spent with family, and he adored his granddaughters more than anything. He was well known for his humble nature and incredible sense of humor. Many of us who spent time with Bill have fond memories of laughter and bowls of ice cream shared. Even through tough times, he always found the good in everything and everyone. Bill was preceded in death by his parents, John and Clarice “Tot” Halsey, brother John Fauerbach and sisters Freda Distefano and Jayne Larkin. He is survived by his daughter Kaitlynn Hermanson (Loren), granddaughters Vesper and Dagny, step-daughter Amy Jacques, step-son Robert Bolstad, as well as many extended family members and dear friends. In lieu of flowers, Bill’s wishes were for donations made to the Longmont Humane Society.
