Obituary for Stephen Lee Helmke

November 16, 1964 - August 10, 2018
Cedar Park, Texas | Age 53


On Friday, August 10, 2018, Stephen Lee Helmke, of Cedar Park, Texas, loving son and father of two wonderful daughters, passed away at the age of 53. Steve was born in San Antonio, Texas on November 16, 1964 to Vernon and Jackie Helmke. He attended Alamo Heights High School where he played football, then graduated from Texas Tech University where he was an active member of Pi Kappa Alpha Fraternity.

Steve's early morning hunting trips solidified his love for Dunkin Donuts coffee. His charisma and wit brought much success in his career in pharmaceutical sales and management. Steve was involved in Big Brothers Big Sisters of America as a mentor. Port Aransas held a special place in his heart, first visiting with his family and fishing with his brother and dad, and later becoming a master sand castle builder with his daughters.

Steve is survived by his parents, Vernon and Jackie Helmke, his siblings, Karen Rogers and husband, Steve and Mike Helmke, and wife, Sue, his two amazing daughters, Holly & Hannah Helmke, and their mother Joan Kaderka, and nieces and nephews.

He was a father, son, brother, uncle and friend - and will be sorely missed.

A memorial service will be held at 2 p.m. on Monday, August 13, 2018 at Hill Country Church, 12124 620N, Austin, TX 78750.
