Richard C. III "Rich" Halsey
August 3, 1947 - August 10, 2022

On Wednesday August 10, 2022, Rich Halsey, loving husband, father and grandfather, passed away at the age of 75. 

Rich Halsey was born on August 3, 1947 in Lake Geneva to Dick and Dora Halsey (nee Teal). He received his Bachelors and Masters degrees from the University of Wisconsin Whitewater, and he practiced as an executive auditor for decades. On November 29, 1969, he married Gail Halsey (nee Batker) and together they raised Renee and Brent.

Rich played football in High School and was a die-hard Packers fan all his life.  Even in the 80s.  He loved playing with children and is fondly remembered as a fun Uncle.  He enjoyed traveling and being outdoors and passed these passions down to his children.  

He loved fishing with his friends, spending time on lakes in Wisconsin, playing poker and Sheepshead, and watching the local news at all hours. He had a stubborn side, and his perseverance helped him survive an extra 5.5 years after a devastating hemorrhagic stroke in January 2017. His family is grateful for the extra years they all had with him.

He was preceded in death by his father, Richard “Dick” Halsey, his mother Dora (Teal) Halsey and his sister Mary Koutsky. He is survived by his wife Gail, brothers Jim (the late Linda), Neal (Linda), and Bill (Bonnie), brother-in-law Jim Koutsky, his daughter Renee (Rob) Andino, son Brent (Molly) Halsey and his beloved grandchildren Jake and Josh Andino and Bri and Kali Halsey. 

Visitation will be on Saturday August 20th from 12pm-2pm until the time of the Memorial Service at 2pm at Schmidt and Bartelt Funeral Home- Menomonee Falls: N84 W17937 Menomonee Ave.
