NDAD remembers GF's Paul Helgeson, subject of 2019 fundraiser
NDAD is remembering the late Paul Helgeson of Grand Forks. Helgeson, a married father of three and grandfather of two, died Tues., Feb. 9, at his home at age 54.

Paul was a former North Dakota high school track champion, Eagle Scout and longtime Boy Scout leader, and longtime owner-operator of Odin's Belmont Service.

A cancer patient who also had paraneoplastic, a rare neurological autoimmune disease, Paul was the focus of an NDAD-sponsored fundraiser that culminated with a large benefit in April 2019.

Private family services will be held later. Paul's obituary: amundsonfuneralhome.com/obituary/paul-helgeson/.

NDAD extends our heartfelt condolences to Paul's wife of 32 years, Heather; their three sons and their families; and other family members and friends.

In lieu of flowers ,Paul and his family would appreciate donations to the North Dakota Association for the Disabled (NDAD).
