June 27, 1948 - June 24, 2020
CASTLEWOOD, VIRGINIA – Grover “G.C.” Helton went to be with the Lord on Wednesday, June 24, 2020, at the age of 71. As his favorite hymn says, “I saw the light, I saw the light; No more darkness, no more night; now I'm so happy no sorrow in sight; Praise the Lord I saw the light.” He was born on June 27, 1948, in St. Paul, Virginia to Clyde Helton Sr and Gracie Horton Helton. G.C. was a loving husband and father who lived his life with passion and conviction. He had an unwavering faith in Jesus Christ that he shared with everyone he encountered. He led by example, showing his family how to deeply love other people every day. In the words of his favorite evangelist, “Someday you will read or hear that Billy Graham is dead. Don't you believe a word of it. I shall be more alive than I am now. I will just have changed my address. I will have gone into the presence of God.” G.C. joined his parents, his brother, Clyde Helton, Jr., and his granddaughter, Abigail Peak, in Heaven. He is survived by his wife, Stellia Helton; three daughters: Cathy Helton, Melissa Helton, and Tina Jones; three sons: Michael Helton, Mitchell Helton, and Matthew Helton; two sisters: Della Jenkins of St. Paul, VA, and Anita Taylor and husband Garnett of Castlewood, VA; nine grandchildren: Michael Helton II, Corey Helton, Hillary Grizzle, Courtney Grizzle, Luke Peak, Savannah Peak, Amanda McCoy, D.J. Jones, and Marie Helton; four great-grandchildren: Connor Craig, Gracie Craig, River Jones, and Laney McCoy; and several nieces and nephews.
