Steven Locksley Helmer

Sept. 14,1948 - Dec. 18, 2020

It is with heavy hearts we announce the passing of Steven Locksley Helmer

on December 18, 2020 at the age of 72.

Steven will be remembered for the quiet, loving, caring, generous, and faith-filled man that he was.

Steve was born on September 14, 1948 in Chesterville, Ontario, to parents

Lockie and Marguerite. In 1959, tragedy took their home, at which time they

decided to make the move west to Alberta, ultimately settling in the Rocky

Mountain House area in 1960 where he remained till his passing.

Steve attended Will Sinclair High School. Upon graduating he stayed in

Rocky and continued to help on the family dairy farm in the Chedderville

community as well as working at various other jobs. Steve was a hard

worker and took a position with AMOCO at the Ricinus Gas Plant as an

Operator. He retired in 2003 from then BP after 30 years of service at the

Ricinus Plant.

Steve's first love was his family; he was the best husband, father, and

grandfather anyone could ever ask for. His love was unconditional. The

best memories will be of the time spent at the ball diamonds with the boys,

fishing, or just plain relaxing with family and friends at the cabin at Rochon

Sands. He was so proud of the adults his children had become and his new

grandbaby, Olive, was the light of his life. As long as he was with family, he

was happy.

Steve was a devoted Christian known by many as the “Prayer Warrior” by

what he considered to be his second family at Memorial Presbyterian

Church. He loved God, his Bible, and was indeed a good and faithful

servant. He also loved to sing and sang with the Church Choir, the

Community Christmas Choir, and often attended the Community Hymn

Sing. He also loved the 10 years that he sang with the Northern Crossing

Choir for their Christmas shows.

Steve is survived by the love of his life Darlene, daughters: Katherine

(Grandbaby Olive) and Leanna, and sons: Aaron (Kayla) and Landon, as

well as his sister, Janie Heikkinen. He is gone, but will forever live in our


He was predeceased by his father Lockie, mother Marguerite, sister Susan,

Grandmother Alda Kendrick, Mother-in-law Dawna Roycroft and

Fathers-in-law Don Roycroft and Jim Hansen.

If friends so desire, memorial tributes may be made in Steve's memory to

Presbyterian World Sharing and Development, or The Lord's Food Bank

(Rocky Mountain House).

A private family gathering was held on Thursday, December 24 at the

Rocky Funeral Home.

The care of Mr. Helmer has been entrusted to Rocky Funeral Homes.
