Christopher Adam Helstrom
Passed on July 13, 2019
It is with deep sadness that we announce the passing of Christopher on July 13th, 2019 at the age of 27. He is survived by his mother Dawn Nychka (Murray), his father Richard Helstrom (Tracy), siblings Daniel Helstrom, Lexi Nychka (Joseph), Jazlyn Nychka (Camden), Karen LeForte (Kelson), Ashey Sass (Meriah), grandparents Colin Cameron (Darlene), Jean Helstrom, Great Grandparents Eva Cameron and numerous aunts, uncles and cousins. Christopher was pre-deceased by his grandparents Bonnie (Bill) Chrismas , Clayton Helstrom , his aunt Eva Jahns, uncle Donald Burnside and uncle Norman Campbell. Christopher was born at The Pas Health Complex. He was raised in The Pas until he moved to Selkirk in September, 1999 and then Balmoral in 2003. When Chris was a little boy he loved being on the farm; Whether it was in Balmoral, or when he went for visits in The Pas. He loved to run free with his cousins when they were visiting. He was a mechanically inclined child. He loved to take things apart even though he couldn’t always put things back together. When he was with his dad he loved to follow him around when he could. When his dad was busy he would spend time with his grandmother. When Chris grew up he loved spending time with his friends playing guitar, boxing and just hanging out. As an adult one of Christopher’s favorite groups to volunteer for was the Bear Clan Patrol in The Pas. He said that it made him feel so good to be a volunteer with this group. Christopher’s celebration of life took place on July 22, 2019 at 2:00 pm at the Lutheran Church in Teulon, MB. In lieu of flowers; If friends so desire, donations can be made to The Bear Clan Patrol or the Main Street Project in Winnipeg, MB. I would like to thank the person who called 911, the paramedics who transported Christopher to the Hospital so quickly, and the Doctors and Nurses in the Emergency Department at the Health Sciences Centre who worked so hard to save him.
