Gary Stephen Hellman, 56, of Valparaiso passed away peacefully at home on Friday, September 10, 2021.  He was born October 18, 1964 in Erie, Pennsylvania to Richard & Patricia (Shearer) Hellman.  Gary made his career with Opportunity Enterprises in their Production division.  Despite life’s challenges, Gary was always a happy and good spirited soul who loved everyone he ever met, especially the children.  His fondness for everything related to law enforcement was legendary.  He accumulated a treasury of police mementos from far and wide.  Gary appreciated nature and all things associated with it.  On the rare occasions of his frustration, he might respond by saying “fap”.  This along with many other “Garyisms” have been incorporated into the family’s vocabulary.  Gary, our world was a little better for having been blessed with your spirit these past 56 years.  Survivors include his father, Richard (Susan) Hellman of Texas, siblings, Brenda (Steve) Laughlin of Texas, Eric Hellman of Texas, Brigette (David) Cavanaugh of Valparaiso, Indiana, David Hellman of Gary, Indiana, Rebecca (Kevin) Drummond of Portage & Amos (Myca) Hellman of Brazil, Indiana, and many loving nieces, nephews, and friends. He was preceded in death by his mother Patricia Hellman.
A visitation will be held Thursday, September 16th from 4 – 6 pm at Moeller Funeral Home with memorial service beginning at 6:00 pm.  Memorial donations may be made to Opportunity Enterprises.  Click here to watch the recorded funeral service.
