NORFOLK – William Halprin, 71, passed away on June 4, 2023.

Born in Norfolk, Va., he was the son of the late Burton Zelick and Annette Comess Halprin and was predeceased by his sister-in-law Lani Roman.

A lifelong resident of Norfolk, Bill graduated from Old Dominion University. He worked for the majority of his adult life at SL Nusbaum Realty Co, where he most recently served as senior vice president. He was a two-term president of the Tidewater Builders Association and served on the board of the Beth Sholom Home.

Left to cherish Bill’s memory is his beloved wife of 46 years, Jeri Jo Halprin, daughter, Peri Halprin, son, Brian Halprin and wife Laura, sister, Diane Harrell and husband Frank, and brother-in-law Richard Roman.

William enjoyed travel, spending time in the Outer Banks, his weekly poker game, and shaking a leg at countless family functions where he invented “The Billy.” Without a doubt, William’s greatest passion was his family. He leaves behind a community of countless family and friends who loved him dearly for his generosity, kindness, and integrity.

A graveside service was held for William at Forest Lawn Cemetery. Memorial donations may be made in Bill’s name to a charity of your choosing. His family does ask that whenever Stairway to Heaven plays, please listen to it in its entirety in memory of Bill.
