David William Halsey "Snowman", Age 64, passed away on February 14, 2020. He was born on April 12, 1955 in Wilmington, DE to the late Wade and Elsie Halsey.
Dave attended Middletown High School and worked on the family farm. He was an accomplished tire changer, both large and small. He worked at Earles Tire, Tires Sales and Service, where he went to school to change big off the road tires ( OTR).
He was known by many names; Hip, Crockett, Snowman, Halsey, whatever you knew him by, you knew he was a legend in the tire business and just as respected in the trucking world. In 2005, Dave became co-owner of Green Dreams Trucking, LLC. in Newark, De. He enjoyed fishing, riding his Harley, old Nascar, vacations to the Outer Banks, NC and Daytona Beach, FL. And being with family.
Dave is survived by his beloved wife of forty-six ½ (46 1/2) years, Gloria Halsey; his daughters, BJ (Bobbi Jo) Chandler (Frank Chandler) and Keri Halsey (Adam Mason); his Grandchildren; Aaron (Britney) and Logan Chandler; Kieran Halsey (Marcos Sostre)and Courtnie Bendekovits(Mitchell Farr).

He was preceded in death by his father Wade Halsey, his mother Elsie Mae (Fell) Halsey, brothers: Willard & Wade Joseph Halsey and sister, Rose Marie Halsey.
He was a model of hard work, grit, and sheer determination. He will be greatly missed by many nieces, nephews, cousins, friends, neighbors, all of which will embellish in stories about him, which he would have enjoyed.
