Issue Date: December 30, 2021
Sylvester J. Hallada, 89, of Coleman, passed away peacefully surrounded by family Saturday, December 25, 2021.
He was born to the late Frank and Evelyn (Wittenburg) Hallada in Pound, WI, on March 1, 1932. He graduated from Oconto Falls High school in 1949, where he soon took over the family farm on Midway Road in Coleman, retiring in 1993. To this day, the farm is still thriving with the next generation, due to the hard work Sylvester invested in it. He was united in marriage to Annabelle Fetterly on April 29, 1953 at St. Charles Catholic Church in Lena, WI.
Sylvester enjoyed fishing, woodworking, spending time at his cabin, (which he built himself) playing cards, and spending time in his garden up until this year. He loved spending time with family, especially his grandchildren, great-grandchildren and great-great-grandchild.
He was preceded in death by his parents, and a dear friend, Kenny Goldschmidt.
Survivors include, his loving wife of 68 years, Annabelle; sons, Terry (Jackie) Hallada and Milton Hallada; daughters, RoseAnn (Ron) Patenaude, Sherry (Gaylon) Reeves, Audrey Tesch and Jacqueline Patz; grandchildren, Tabitha, Travis, Shawn, Michael, Tara, Kaitlyn, Britny, Tyler and Brandon. Further survivors include, 11 great-grandchildren; 1 great-great-grandchild and his brother, Donald Hallada.
Per Sylvester's wishes, cremation will take place with no services to be held.
The family would like to thank the staff of Unity Hospice for their loving care of Sylvester.
