Larry Lee Helm

Larry Lee Helm, 68, of Wellsville Kansas passed away unexpectedly in his home on September 29th, 2023.

Larry was born on August 18th, 1955, to Odis “Lee” Helm & Lois Helm in Wichita Falls, Texas. Larry graduated from Lawrence High School in 1974 and he spent most of his career at Lawrence Paper Company until a work injury forced him to retire.

Larry spent his childhood years camping and enjoyed collecting Antique Barbwire with his father. Over the years, Larry often frequented barb wire shows and had a passion for woodworking, gardening, and fishing. He spent much of his time tinkering around his shop and was a collector of many things by thrift shopping at Goodwill. Larry enjoyed weekly lunches with his parents and there wasn’t a conversation to be had where he wasn’t sharing stories or bragging about his daughter.

Larry is survived by his parents, Lee & Lois Helm, Lawrence, Kansas, his daughter Amanda Davis (Kyle Davis), Lawrence, Kansas. His sister Lori Petrie (Matt Schmidt) Baldwin City, Kansas, a niece Kari Brungardt (Ken Brungardt), Lawrence, Kansas, grandsons Cohen & Nash Davis, Lawrence, Kansas, and many extended family members.

A Private Celebration of Life will be held in the Spring for family and friends.
