Douglas "Logan" Helms

Douglas “Logan” Norman Helms, 59 of Denver, North Carolina peacefully departed this life on Saturday, December 7, 2019 at Atrium Health’s Carolina Medical Center. He was born to the late Jean Helms on August 25, 1960 in Roanoke, Virginia. Logan had recently gained an important job position with Radco Roofing as a Sales Manager. He was Roman Catholic and attended various Catholic Schools. Logan enjoyed fitness, guns, and motorcycles. Everyone who knew him would describe him as an inspirational, charming, and determined man. Something he always practiced was gratitude and accepting challenges. Logan had endured more pain than most during his life, but he carried his burdens with pride and strength. He left an impact on many people, including his friends, family, and coworkers. In addition to his mother he was preceded in death by one son, Nathan Helms and one daughter, Nicole Helms. Those left to cherish his memories are his daughter, Taylor Helms; one brother, Jay Helms; one sister, Lynne Dryer; and three grandchildren, Jace Withrow, Javen Martin, and Margaux Lukacs. A visitation will be held on Friday, December 13, 2019 at Collins Funeral Home Chapel from 11:00A.M. – 2:00P.M. with a funeral service to follow at 2:00P.M. with Pastor Richard Belcher officiating.

Rest In Peace Uncle Doug! Rest assured Mum, Chancie and I will keep in touch and look after Ashley and those boys. They love you so much. I wish your friends and family would have been allowed to bid you farewell and you were placed there with your son. Alas whats done is done, and you deserved so much more. So glad we three spoke to you on Thanksgiving, we will always have that one last conversation..... Love you!

Im so sorry you have to endure this kind of pain, but youre as strong willed as your dad and he was so proud of you. I pray you will find some peace and comfort in the days to come. Hang in there pretty girl, Gods got you!!

I am so sorry for your loss. I worked with Logan (Doug) for a couple years in Ft Myers. Everything said in the obituary was correct about your dad. He was a coworker and friend who was always there to advise. A real decent man who was quiet but still cared about people. I will miss my time to time conversations with him on the phone or chat. RIP Doug!
