At the Greece Town Board Meeting Tuesday night, a moment of silence was held for Deputy Greece Town Supervisor Jerry Helfer.
Helfer died on Sunday following a brief illness. On Tuesday night, Supervisor Bill Reilich said a few words about Helfer.
Bill Reilich, Greece Town Supervisor, said, "He will be sorely missed, not only as a professional that is a part of our team, but also as a personal friend of probably most of the people in this room."
Helfer was 48-years-old. His memorial service will be held on Saturday at 7:00 p.m. at Hope Lutheran Church on Vintage Lane.
