Thomas Leon Halfen Sr. - September 5, 2020 Jefferson City, MO

 

Thomas (Tom aka Papa Tommy) Leon Halfen Sr. Passed away quietly at his son’s home in the care of his family, early in the morning on September 5, 2020. He was 74 years old.

 

He was born in Manhattan, NY where he was adopted by Fred and Mally Halfen . This family journey led them to Atlanta, Georgia. As an adult in Atlanta he was a successful salesman in pharmaceuticals and then in the real estate market where he was awarded more than once the Million dollar sales award. Once the real estate market plunged he was trained as a chef. This journey led him to opening his own restaurant in Prince Edward Island. This venture was short lived but caught the attention of the New York Times as an up and coming place to enjoy great food. After his son Thommy and family moved to Jefferson City he decided to follow and make Jefferson City his beloved home. Here he found a community of friends among the autobahn society, animal shelter, Missouri River paddlers, Arris Pizza and Paddy Malone’s.

 

He was an avid animal lover, chef by trade, bird watcher and a big supporter of the Missouri River Paddlers group. He looked forward to the Missouri River races each year and greeted many paddlers with coffee, blankets and a smile. He had a passion for finding homes for misplaced animals of the shelter and watching the migration of the sand hill cranes and eagles. His grandchildren fondly remember him emailing, calling or texting about the different changes in the moon and planets as well.

 

Tom leaves behind to cherish these memories and more his daughter: Kimberly (Greg) Rowan; son: Thommy (Lori) Halfen; nine grandchildren: CariBeth, Amalie , Lauren, Morgan , Benjamin , Grace, Blake, Taylor and Bryce; four great grandchildren: Lyla, Peyton, Azalia, Taylor; two beloved friends: Jim Meidl and Jane Ready- Luckman;  two cousins: Steve and Tom Safran. 

 

As his life was nearing the end, his search for his birth family began to produce results of family he never knew yet extended their friendship and prayers in his time of need . Two days prior to his death, his son and daughter had the privilege of leading him to Jesus Christ.

 

A Celebration of Tom’s life will be 1 p.m. November 25, 2020 at the Noren River Access.

 

Expressions of sympathy may be made to one of these organizations fondly supported by our father: The VFW, The Missouri Autobahn Society, Your local animal shelter, or the Missouri River Relief.

James Barton Miller - July 12, 2020 Fulton, Missouri

 

James Barton Miller was welcomed into heaven on July 12, 2020, after a painful battle with cancer. He passed away at his home, surrounded by his wife, children, and grandchildren as was his wish.

 

James was born in Hannibal, Missouri, on March 12, 1959, to William Joseph Miller and Agnes Louise Janes Miller.  He married the love of his life, Janice Elaine Septer, on July 3, 1982, at Indian Creek Baptist Church in New Hartford, Missouri. To this union were born three daughters -- Christiana, Mary, and Gretel.

 

James grew up on the family farm in Frankford, Missouri, where he helped raise the livestock and hogs and run the family sawmill. He also worked with his family hauling hay on several farms in the Frankford and Hannibal area.

 

He attended Frankford Elementary School and Bowling Green High School and graduated in 1977. While in high school, he was active in Future Farmers of America and Choir all four years, played the clarinet, was in three high school musicals, and ran the lighting for the musical on the fourth year.

 

After graduation, he moved to Ashland, Missouri, and worked at Mid-State Concrete Pipe Company in Fulton, Missouri. In April of 1980, after his father’s heart attack, he returned to Frankford to help with the farm and sawmill. The same year, he was also ordained as a deacon at Frankford Baptist Church. From 1980 to 1982, Jim sang in the Salt River Baptist Associational Choir where he would meet his wife.

 

Jim then worked as a bus driver and study hall monitor for Lincoln County R-I Schools in Silex, Missouri, from 1982 to 1983. The couple later moved to Millersburg, Missouri, and he returned to work at Mid-State Concrete. Jim worked for the same company—under a variety of names—for thirty-eight years until his heart attack in 2019. During the winter months of ’83, ’84, ’85, he was the house parent and bus driver for the Missouri School for the Deaf. The family relocated to Fulton, Missouri, in 1998 after a fire destroyed their home.

 

Jim was a wonderful, strong, godly Christian man, with a big heart. He loved music, working in church, working with children, and helping people. He was active in Frankford Baptist Church, Millersburg Baptist Church, and Union Hill Baptist Church serving as deacon, Sunday School teacher, RA leader, music and choir director, Vacation Bible School worker, yard maintenance worker, and wherever else he was needed. He also enjoyed spreading joy as a member of the Kingdom Klowns for Jesus of Jefferson City, Missouri. Jim was a certified leader for the Heart of Missouri Girl Scouts where he served as a designated driver, helper at Father-Daughter Campout and Day Camps, and a variety of other Girl Scout outings. Some of his most loved hobbies included fishing, fixing things, coaching softball, playing Monday night basketball, and anything he could enjoy with his children and/or grandchildren.

 

Jim was preceded in death by his parents William and Louise Miller; and his in-laws: Earnest (Shirley) Septer, Earnestine (Wayne) Harvey, Don Sammons, and Ronald Septer. He was survived by his wife of 38 years: Janice; three daughters: Christiana (Jimmy) Mustion of Jefferson City, Mary (Scotty) Watson of Fulton, and Gretel (Dakota) Engel of Tuscaloosa, Alabama; four grandchildren: Noelle Mustion, Isabella & William Watson, and Abigail Engel; five siblings: Joy Miller of Ashland, Doren (Lynn) Miller of Clarksville, Jeff (Fay) Miller of Curryville, Ronnie (Joyce) Meyer of Palmyra, and Lonnie Meyer of Mexico; two sisters-in-law: Retha Sammons of Salem, Iowa, and Judy Septer of Mt. Pleasant, Iowa; and many nieces, nephews, aunts, uncles, and cousins.
