SIKESTON -- Jerry Webster Helmes, 66, died Oct. 9, 2008, from injuries sustained in a motorcycle accident in Sikeston.
Born March 23, 1942, in Anniston, son of the late Elsie Lavern (Robison) Helmes, he was of the Baptist belief, a member of the Harley Owners Group "HOG" and the Sikeston Masonic Lodge. He was a veteran of the U.S. Army, having served during Vietnam, and he was owner and operator of Helmes Quick Sack for 27 years before retiring.

On April 2, 1964, he married Janet Faye Hodges, who preceded him in death on June 8, 1996.

Two brothers, Anthony "Tony" Helmes and Jamie Helmes; and one sister, Barbara Adams; and one grandson, Clinton Webster Helmes II also preceded him in death.

Survivors include: two sons, Clinton W. Helmes of Sikeston and Dale "Hulio" Williams of Morehouse; one daughter, Jerri Linda Helmes of Sikeston; two brothers, Glen Allen Helmes and Donald "Kevin" Helmes both of Matthews; one sister, Sharon F. Helmes of Cape Girardeau; and two grandchildren, Tyler White and Sydney Helmes both of Sikeston.

Funeral services were conducted Monday at Ponder Funeral Home in Sikeston, with the Rev. Randy Deprow, pastor of Tallapoosa Baptist Church, officiating.

Burial followed in the Garden of Memories Cemetery in Sikeston with full military honors.

Pallbearers were: Gary Hampton, Randy Dukes, Bobby Robison, Glen Allen Helmes Jr., Kenneth Leker and Richie Riley.

Jerry will be sorely missed. He always had a smile on his face and an encouraging word for anyone who would listen.
