|Birth: ||Feb. 5, 1948|
|Death: ||Nov. 8, 2012|
William Helms passed away quietly at his home Thursday, November 8, 2012 after a year-long battle with cancer. At his bedside were his adult daughters, Elizabeth, Kathleen and Margaret and his life partner Geraldine Moreland. Born in 1948 in Americus, GA, Bill was a true Southern Gentleman yet a world explorer. His gentle spirit and innate curiosity, his artistry and intellect, his empathy and compassion; all were unselfishly shared with those who were fortunate enough to make his acquaintance. Bill's writing, botany, fishing, teaching, and award-winning photography all were testaments to his passion for learning and exploration. He is, and will forever be, missed. A memorial service for Bill will be held on Saturday, November 17 at 2:00pm at Floral Hills Funeral Home, 3150 Lawrenceville Hwy. Tucker, GA. In lieu of flowers, the family asks for donations to the Tucker Arts Guild or the Roswell Photographic Society, as Bill was a member of both.

Cremated, Ashes given to family or friend.
