Lavere Helmkay

January 26, 1938 – April 3, 2020
It is with great sadness that we let you know that Lavere passed away peacefully on April 3rd with his friend Lesley by his side holding his hand.
Predeceased by his parents in 1994 and his brother Roy in 2018 and his sister in law, Sandra.
Survived by his sister in law; Rhonda, his sister; Beth (Don), brother; Marvin, Brother; Cliff (Dar), Bill and Bev, plus many nieces, nephews and cousins. Lavere also leaves behind many people who cared about him, Pat and Al, Terry (Heather and Kids in Alberta), Norma, Lu, Melissa and James.
His friends from Mountain View, his friends at Birch Lodge, and his last home, where he had lived for 15 months, 30th Street home, where he settled in nicely and enjoyed having roommate’s and really enjoyed the attention staff gave him.
Also, his long time friends Lesley and Amanda, whom loved him dearly, he will always be in our hearts. We shall miss our visits and bringing you a tea and donut from Tims.
Lavere loved getting his Ford Calendar every year, he really liked classic cars, and in his younger years fixing up bicycles and just sharing stories of his life.
We will miss your smile and the twinkle in your eyes, and your laugh when you thought something was funny.
Lavere did not want a service of any kind, so that will be respected.
