Robert Jesse Helt
December 28, 1929 – November 29, 2019
Robert (Bob) Jesse Helt was born on December 28, 1929 in North Platte, NE. He was the oldest of the three sons of Raymond and Frances Helt. He passed on November 29, 2019 peacefully in his home, in Aurora, Colorado. He was 89 years old.
Bob grew up in Nebraska, but while still young, his family moved to the Denver area. He served in the U.S. Navy. Hard-working and talented, Bob had a variety of occupations. His main career was in Aerospace engineering, but he also worked in Real Estate as a broker and salesman. He was a gifted electrician and handyman, and could tackle any project. He loved "over the road" trips and enjoyed many adventures in his RV van with wife Julie, and whatever dog he had at the time. Most of all, he was a dedicated family man, his time with his family was the most important thing in his life.
Bob was well known for his great sense of humor and his positive outlook on life. His faith was central to his life, he enjoyed attending Colorado Community Church and being part of, and leading, a small group Bible Study. He will be greatly missed by all who knew him.
Bob was survived by his wife of 34 years, Julia (Julie) Helt; 2 children; Barbara (Jim) Sieke of Lakewood, Colorado and Sharon (Brad) Johnson of Spooner, Wisconsin; 5 stepchildren; Joe Trollinger of Aurora, Colorado; Tim (Linda) Trollinger of Mary Esther, Florida; Linda Koch of Broomfield, Colorado; Jerry Trollinger of Aurora, Colorado and Theresa Trollinger of Phoenix, Arizona; 14 grandchildren; 5 great grandchildren; and several nieces and nephews.

To "Daddy Bob":
You've been gone over a week, the funeral is over, and we are left with our grief which is hard. But not hard is remembering the memories, and being grateful for having been able to journey through life with you as my Dad! I will never forget the adventures, the countless conversations, and the love we shared between us. I know you are at peace now, and in the presence of our Lord and Savior! I am looking forward to joining you there one day, until then, I will do all I can to share your legacy and live on for you!
Sharon, your youngest daughter :-)

We've laid you to rest now.
I believe your legacy will resonate with me for eternity.
I should've said something at the service in your honor, but I didn't. Here it goes:
I'll never, ever not think of you when it comes to making important decisions. You're were always my sounding board, I made some great moves in my life thanks to you and your worldly advice.
I wish I still had you here with me.
I will miss you always.
Thank you for being such a wonderful husband to my Mom, and a wonderful stepfather to me.
I'll always love you....
