The Giving Spirit: Marysville residents, others remember the man who was ‘everywhere at once’



Having been converted into a community center, the old school had become a meeting place for residents of Marysville. Like so many other buildings, the storms had damaged it. Andy saw the importance to the community of having a centralized gathering place. 

Renovations to the school are under way with new windows and a roof having recently been added by volunteers from March2Recovery. Bussey said people can donate money to help with the expenses. Those interested may mail checks to the Oregon Township Trustee, Tornado Fund, 14220 N. New Market Road, Marysville, IN, 47141.

“I promise everybody that gives a nickel that it’s going to go toward that community center,” he said.

Besides the memories of his good deeds, Andy is survived by his wife Carla, two children, two stepchildren, his parents and a sister. His also leaves behind a whole town that he had positively affected.

“If anyone deserves to be honored, it is Andy Helton,” Graham said. “He gave his life to helping others, that’s for sure.”
