The world lost a bright light . . .
Robert “Bob or Howie” Halvorson lost a courageous battle with cancer on Thursday, August 18, 2022.
Family and friends are respectfully invited to attend a Celebration of Robert’s Life that will be held at 5:30 PM on Friday, September 2, 2022 at Wildwood Park Station in Marshfield. Honorary pallbearers will be Jay Carpenter, Paul Habeck, Fred Jensen, Tom Nikolay and Chris Langreck. All of whom were more like brothers to Bob.
Robert was born on June 13, 1954 in Wausau to Melba Halvorson. He spent his early years in Fenwood before moving to Colby, where he attended school in Colby and ran Halvorson Dairy with his mother. Robert was always a hard worker with a heart of gold. He worked at Haupt Well and then managed Arpin Lumber for a while. Bob enjoyed life in the cheese factory and worked later at Nasonville Dairy and Mullins Cheese.
He enjoyed being outdoors and making firewood. He liked woodworking and crafted many bird feeders, bird houses and bat houses. He kept the Marshfield Respite Center supplied with bird houses that they often used for fundraisers. Bob enjoyed his many hobbies and time spent with good friends. He was known as the good neighbor who would always lend a helping hand.
Bob will sadly be missed by his sister, Bonnie (Russ) Andres and his niece, Chelsea (Mike) Stuttgen along with many friends and neighbors.
His family would like to thank House of the Dove for making Bob comfortable in his last days.
