Clem George Helmke, formerly living in Naples, FL, completed his life’s journey here on earth June 28, 2017. Born May 21, 1925 in St Louis, MO, he had a wonderful 92 years of living life to the fullest. While calling 3 cities home, Kirkwood, MO, St Genevieve, MO and Naples, FL, he was known to all as a great fisherman, avid golfer and teller of the ‘Tall Tale’. He always had a smile and friendly, “Hello, do I know you?” greeting. He will be dearly missed by his wife of 69 years, Jean Emmons Helmke and his daughter, Susie Helmke Leslie, of Jacksonville, FL. He is now at peace with their son, Michael Helmke, who passed last year. As a former Marine, a military service will be held at a later date in St Louis, MO. The family is so thankful for the loving care provided to Clem, in Jacksonville, FL. In lieu of flowers, please send any cards or donations, in his name to Taylor Care Center, 6535 Chester Avenue, Jacksonville, FL 32217.
