Everett C. Halstead, 63, of Williamsport, died Saturday, Nov. 3, 2012. He was the husband of the late Mary Ann "Muffy" Halstead, who died July 14, 2010.
Born Aug. 17, 1949, in Pittsburgh, he was a son of the late Clair Kenneth and Gladys Irene (Beikert) Halstead.
After a lifetime of church ministry and several years as a missionary in Africa, Everett was surrounded by his legacy Saturday night when his faith was made sight. It was while singing his favorite song, "It Is Well With My Soul" followed by "To God Be the Glory" that he left us here to stand before his Lord and Savior to hear, "Well done, thy good and faithful servant."
