Pastor Ronald Bruce Helzerman, went home to be with the Lord on January 29, 2021. He was born on August 15, 1943 in Highland Park, Michigan. He was reunited with his Father, Theodore Helzerman, his Mother, Ruth Helzerman, and his sister in law, Ruth (Tremble) Helzerman who had gone on before him. He will be lovingly remembered by his wife of 55 years, Jane Helzerman, who diligently and faithfully cared for him through the end of his journey.

He will also be remembered by his brothers; Richard (Brenda) Helzerman, Edward (Diann) Helzerman, Raymond (Karen) Helzerman, Douglas (Sandra) Helzerman, Larry (Debby) Helzerman. A sister; Marjory (David) Smith. An uncle; Robert (Audrey) Lucks. His sons; Timothy (Karen) Helzerman, Mark (Christi) Helzerman, David (Hannah) Helzerman, Stephen (Samantha) Helzerman. His daughters; Christy (James II) Dare, Amy (Dan) Navalta; 32 grandchildren; 15 great grandchildren and several cousins, nieces, and nephews

Ron was a humble servant of the Lord. He was a bold witness, faithfully involved in full time ministry for 45 years. He also served as pastor of Lighthouse Baptist Church for the past 23 years. His greatest passion and what motivated him the most was the publishing of scriptures. His work in the Bearing Precious Seed ministry was his driving force. “By love serving one another.” He was interested in getting the Word of God into the hands of people separated by language, miles, and culture. S.O.S. was his motto representing Souls Over Seas. He loved to take mission trips to Mexico and Canada visiting many churches to encourage pastors and congregations to get involved in this monumental undertaking. He had a gentle, meek, and quiet spirit. He would often say, “A soft answer turneth away wrath: but grievous words stir up anger.” He was a loving husband and dedicated father. He worked hard to provide for the family and put other’s needs before his own. Dad, you will be greatly missed!

Our family is thankful for the Angela Hospice staff who made his final days peaceful. Also, we are deeply grateful to Pastor Chris Staub and his dear wife Pam for their support. Mrs. Staub was there for us morning and evening every day graciously serving and helping.

A visitation for Ron will be held Thursday, February 4, 2021 from 4:00 PM to 8:00 PM at Silvery Lane Baptist Church. A funeral service will occur Friday, February 5, 2021 at 11:00 AM at Silvery Lane Baptist Church.

Dear Mrs. Helzerman and Family,

It has been a blessing to get to know your family over the last twenty years. We enjoyed our times together during furloughs and we will certainly miss Pastor Helzerman. It will be great to see him again in heaven. We appreciate you all and will be praying for you each day.

Sincerely,

We remember helping you move to Lighthouse Baptist Church & you helping us move here to mid-Michigan the same year. We also have great memories of your visit with us in Deland, FL in March of 2020. Our tour together of the CHRISTian Chocolate Factory in Daytona (with their table full of Chick Gospel Tracts) was fun! We look forward to seeing JESUS & Bro Ron soon! We heard a preacher once say, "Isn't it great that The LORD has it set up that we (CHRISTians) all get to Heaven on the same day? Because in Heaven there is no night!" The LAMB is the Light thereof. (Rev 21:23)
Our Love to the Helzerman family.
Dennis & Donna - Titus 2:13

Our sympathies to the family. Remember some times having Bro. Ron in as a missionary for a missions conference. He really loved God and His Word and did his best to see it got published to people who did not have a copy. I'm sure he will be missed but heaven is surely richer. We will be praying for the family.

What a blessing it was to meet Ron and Jane when they came to New York for weddings and graduations. And we thoroughly enjoyed the opportunities to visit the print shop and see the blessed job of creating high-quality copies of God’s precious Word. The example of serving the Lord Jesus in many ways has touched our lives. We will keep praying for strength in the days ahead at the times the magnitude of your loss of a godly companion and advisor hit you. “I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee.” (Heb. 13:5b) We are blessed to call as our friends Ron’s children and grandchildren. We are blessed to see them serving the Lord, which must have been the greatest gift to Ron. Keep up your father’s legacy! :-)
