Obituary

Indianapolis - John R. Halter passed away the morning of April 10th, 2022 surrounded by family at home. He has now gone to meet Jesus and rejoin his beloved wife, Mary, in heaven.

John was born on March 13, 1940 to Raymond and Helen Halter. He was devoted to family and faith and lived a full life surrounded by those that he loved and who loved him. His unconditional love was a bedrock for his family in good times and in bad and he showed what true strength and faith is through how he lived and loved in spite of his battle with cancer during recent years. He was a longtime member of St. Jude Catholic Church and the Knights of Columbus.

John was funny, always looking to put a smile on people’s faces. He was a great listener, a hard worker and loved spending Sundays with family for cookouts around his pool. Mere hours prior to his passing, he still found the energy to tap his hand along to the beat of ABBA’s, “Thank You for the Music”, a family favorite.

He will be greatly missed and is survived by his three children: Gary Halter (Kathy), Angela Heinzelman (John), Amy Pfeiffer (Mike), grandchildren: Shaun Heinzelman (Kasie), Shannon Danhauer (Kyle), Chloe Parks, Courtney, Tyler and Emma Halter, Lauren, Mary, Maddie and Rachael Pfeiffer and great-grandchildren: Parker Heinzelman and Cooper Danhauer, siblings: Linda Gaither (Robert), and Robert Halter (Sandra), and many nephews and nieces.

He was preceded in death by his parents: Raymond Halter and Helen Halter-Cannon, wife: Mary Angela Halter, and granddaughter: Lindsay Heinzelman
