A. Marvin "Marv" Helart, age 86, passed away peacefully in Lake Havasu
City, Arizona on June 10, 2018. Marvin was born on January 10, 1932 in
Denver, Colorado.

Marv experienced the passing of his loving wife of 53 years, Myrna,
less than three weeks prior to his passing and true to form, he did
what he had to do to see her again sooner than later. They are now
back together in their eternal resting place.

Marv is survived by three daughters, Kathy Jensen (Larry) of Cheyenne,
Wyoming; Tammy Hardt (Ralph) of San Antonio, Texas; Tina Helart of
Lake Havasu City, Arizona; one son, Craig Helart (Stephanie) of
Bluffton, South Carolina; five grandchildren, Ben Godfrey (Elisabeth)
of Scranton, Pennsylvania; Jacob Godfrey of Glenwood Springs,
Colorado; Derick Jensen of Denver, Colorado; Kaillie Helart of
Charleston, South Carolina; Kevin Helart of Laramie, Wyoming; and one
great granddaughter, Zoe Godfrey, Denver, Colorado.

Marv served in the United States Coast Guard during the Korean
Conflict, where he also learned court reporting. As such, he served as
a court reporter for many years. Marv ultimately served as Chief Clerk
of the US District Court in Cheyenne, Wyoming; the Deputy Clerk of the
US District Court in Reno, Nevada; and lastly as the Chief Clerk of
the US District Court for the Southern District of Illinois, retiring
from Federal service in 1989. He continued working as a court reporter
until fully retiring in 1994.

Always involved within the communities in which he lived, Marv served
as Security Chairman of the Cheyenne Frontier Days committee from
1974-1976. He continued as an active member of the HEELS of Cheyenne
Frontier Days for numerous years. Marv was also an active member of
Rotary International for many years. He founded the Mt. Vernon Rotary
Club in 1983, earning the distinction of Paul Harris Fellow.

Never will you meet a man who more faithfully lived his values. He was
always incredibly loving. Always firm, but fair. He taught his
children the value of hard work and was always there to pick them up
when they fell. His teachings were endless and will forever be missed
by those that were close to him.

He loved his family and was the greatest husband, father and
grandfather. He was loved for infinite reasons and his family feels
blessed to have been able to have him as a father. He provided
unwavering physical and emotional support until the very end.
Thank you, Dad, for always being there. You will be missed every
single day of our lives. We are so happy that you are with Mom and we
find solace knowing that you are enjoying a nice glass of scotch

A private memorial service will be held at a date to be determined.
