Willis L. Helmantoler Tribute 

Yesterday at 6:15PM Eastern time my father Willis Lyndell (Bill) Helmantoler joined friends and family on the other side of the veil.  He surly was welcomed by his first wife Margaret Brickey Casey of Potosi, Missouri, USA and his beloved brother Wayne E. Helmantoler of Woodriver, Illinois, USA who most recently preceded him in immortality.

The patriarchs and matriarchs of the Helmantoler, Gurley, Martin, Clark, Cash, Lucas, Simmons, Oliver,  Thornhill and Wright families will proudly welcome him as a great and noble graduate from the mortal realm.

He is admired by colleagues, loved by family and missed by his many friends. Adding your comment to this blog is an opportunity to share your experience with this great man. I will create a post for each period of his exemplary life. Feel free to comment on where you interacted with a true American Hero.
