Cornelius (Neil) Halter


Cornelius “Neil” Halter, age 61 of New Leipzig, ND; passed away on June 15, 2020 at the Jacobson Memorial Hospital in Elgin, ND.

Neil was a very caring person with many talents. He was an excellent painter, loved to cook and have people to share his cooking with. Neil loved to tinker with mechanics and paint vehicles. He also loved to fish and seemed to always know where they were hiding.

Neil was born in St. Josephs Hospital in Dickinson, North Dakota on October 24, 1958, the son of Nick and Mary (Senger) Halter. He received his education in the schools in Hebron, N.D. We are thankful Neil was a supporter and pioneer in the research for treatments of Darier Disease.

Neil is survived by: his father, Nick Halter and step-mother Arlene, Maple Grove, MN; siblings: Anita (Eric) Goble, Daniel (Kim) Halter, Lucy (Matt) Kjellerson, Karen (Bill) Baumann, Stanley (Kris) Halter, and Jeremy (Jen) Halter as well as 7 step-brothers and sisters, and many nieces and nephews and extended family.

He was preceded in death by his Mother, Mary and brothers Kevin and Pius.

Cremation has taken place and a memorial service will be held at a later date.

A special thanks to Dr. Linderman and to all the friends who helped Neil during the past several difficult months. Your care and support meant so much to Neil and as a family we thank you for your kindness and generosity.
