Lee A. Halverson, age 63, passed away Thursday, June 18, 2020 at St. Mary’s Hospital due to heart failure. Lee was born in Madison February 8, 1957 to George and Barb (Swenson) Halverson.
He was a 1975 graduate of LaFollete High School. He enlisted in the U.S. Navy and served proudly with the Seabees. Lee’s wide range of talents and strong work ethics enabled him to prosper in a number of areas during his employment with the state of Wisconsin. Lee married the love of his life, Tina Carey, and together they spent 29 years hunting, fishing, turtle trapping, camping, and enjoying the outdoors. Lee also was an avid Packer, Badger, and Brewer fan.
Lee is survived by his wife and soul mate Tina; daughter Breanna (Luke) Dunneisen and grandsons Austin and Wyatt of Waterloo; sister Mary Halverson of Portage; brother Billy Halverson of Madison; sister-in-law Kim (Sasha) Showsh and family of Eau Claire, and nieces, nephews, and other relatives, along with many wonderful friends including the Bergemans, Friedes, Pietschs, and Uselmans. He was preceded in death by his parents, in-laws Roger and Trish Carey, and nephew Griffin Wagner.
A celebration of Lee’s life will be held at a later date. A heartfelt thank you to St. Mary’s IC Unit staff for their wonderful and compassionate care of Lee. As Lee would say, “You are all angels.”
