Jerred Steven Halsey, 34, passed away on June 7, 2017.

Jerred lived most of his life in Chesterton and Michigan City, Indiana where he had many friends.

Jerred struggled with an opiate addiction and mental illness throughout his adult life. Everyone that knew Jerred beneath his addiction knew of a loving and caring person with a big heart. Jerred loved music, movies, cooking, and spending time with his fiancˇ and her children.

Jerred is survived by the love of his life, April Smith, and her children Aaron and Alyssa, whom he loved as if they were his own. Jerred was proud of these children and enjoyed every moment with them. Jerred and April had planned to get married and move from the area to be a family.

Jerred is also survived by his mother, Susan Grenzebach, adopted father Warren Halsey, biological father Timothy Miller, and many other relatives that loved Jerred and mourn his untimely passing.

Private memorials will take place by the various people that loved Jerred. His mother requests that, in lieu of flowers, donations be made in Jerred’s memory to the Respite House (Valparaiso) or The Dune’s House (Michigan City) to help give other struggling addicts a chance.
