James D. Halicy, 75, of Norwich, passed away unexpectedly on Wednesday, May 18, 2016 at the Norwich Rehabilitation and Nursing Center after convalescing following a recent surgery.

Born May 12, 1941, in Ellenville, NY, Jim was the son of Kerwick and Mary (O’Mara) Halicy. He was raised in Scipio Center, NY, and graduated in 1959 from Sherwood Central School. Jim earned degrees from both SUNY Geneseo and St. Rose College in Albany. He was called to serve in the Vietnam War as an MP with the U.S. Army and was honorably discharged.

Several years later, in the fall of 2014, Jim returned to Norwich.
