Steven Helmer was born on September 23, 1971 to Robert and Karen (Anderson) Helmer in Olivia, MN. He was baptized and confirmed at the Cross of Calvary Lutheran Church in Olivia. Steven worked for the Roseland Elevator for many years and then began working at the Minaqua Fishery until they closed. He returned to working in agriculture at the Co-op Country Farmer’s Elevator in Danube. On February 23, 1998, Steven married Dawn Kaiser in Las Vegas and they were blessed with three children. Steven loved being active outdoors with fishing and hunting. Woodworking was a hobby of his; he built many specialty pieces including tables, shelves, and clocks. He also enjoyed vegetable and flower gardening. Watching birds with his little “Monster”, Regan, brought him immense joy.
