It is with deep sadness and regret we announce the death of Brad Halter.
Brad Halter, 53, passed away January 4, 2024 in Great Falls, Montana. He graduated from Big Sandy High School in 1989. He received his Associate Degree in Electronics from May Technical College in Billings. Shortly after, he started working for Evercom Systems, Inc. where he installed and did maintenance on telephone systems in jails and prisons throughout Montana and Wyoming. He was awarded the "best in the business service and contract manager" for the Montana and Wyoming areas. He also worked for AGM Telecom Corp. as account manager in the northwest region of Helena. Brad was also very passionate about over the road trucking and the time he spent working eighteen-wheelers. Sports were also one of his many passions; he loved watching and talking up his favorite teams (Georgia Bulldogs, Philadelphia Eagles, UM Grizzlies).
Brad loved the Montana outdoors, getting lost on the dirt backroads and finding new treasures along the way. He always tried to catch more fish than his sister, bag a bigger buck than his brother, and made the most amazing meals on the campfire. He loved beating his Grandma Ade at cribbage and landing the biggest win on the poker machine. He would walk miles just to find the right Diamond Willow to make into walking sticks, lamps, clocks, and "sittin' by the campfire" displays. He was very creative and built many beautiful things from the pieces of wood he'd find. He made crosses, picture frames and many other creative pieces. Brad loved creating things and promoting Montana Mosaic.
Brad was kind, energetic, and a friend to everyone. He had an amazing sense of humor and was gifted with the ability to lighten the mood in any situation.
We find comfort in the many special memories and happy years he shared with us.
He is survived by his son, Corey (Mariah), his two grandsons, daughter Ade, his mother Renee, his father Butch, brothers John (Mindy) and Larry (Jaime), sister Laurie, his love Carolyn Brown, and his niece, nephews and many cousins.
He was preceded in death by Grandparents Bill and Ade Jurenka and Jerry and Inez Halter.
He will be loved forever, held in our hearts forever, and greatly missed. Fly high Brad, you're free at last!
Memorial services will be held at a later date. In lieu of flowers, the family asks any donations be made at a local mental health facility in Brad's name.
