HELWIG, Rodney Orlando
Husband, father, storyteller, community leader, tenor, master tradesman. Born March 9, 1926, in Carrick Township, Ontario Died February 21 in Walkerton, Ontario, of Alzheimer's disease, aged By Yvonne HELWIG, Page L6
Rodney loved nothing better than a good story. This passion began with listening to shows on the farm radio with his seven brothers. He knew how a story could transport you to another place and time, and a new way of looking at the world.
Rodney fine-tuned his storytelling as a star insurance salesman. He learned to read an audience, whether it was one person or a full hall. He developed a knack for creating the dramatic moment.
An ace problem solver, Rodney modelled continuous learning despite never getting past Grade 10. He read Popular Mechanics cover to cover, took things apart and put them back together, and had long conversations with anyone who shared his yen to understand. By his early 40s, Rodney reverted to his first love - fixing things - in the place he loved most, his hometown village of Neustadt, Ontario He developed a reputation as someone who could fix anything.
Rodney had dreams for Neustadt. During the 14 years he was reeve, Neustadt built an arena, installed sewers, established a library, park and historical society, held homecoming festivals and designated the birthplace of former prime minister John Diefenbaker as a heritage building. And, according to one of Rodney's oft-told stories, he came up with the idea for Wiarton Willie while chairing the Grey County tourism committee's attempts to find ways of attracting people to the area.
Rodney's dreams for his four children, Franklin, Jennifer, Christine and Yvonne, were embodied in stories that instilled values and motivated perseverance. They demonstrated that all you needed to solve problems was the belief that you could. And that problems solved became the meat of new dreams.
Making music was just part of being with Rodney. He whistled and sang to ease the tedious parts of a job. He applied his fine tenor voice to a barbershop chorus in Walkerton, and to gospel singing at the Neustadt Baptist Church. His laughter was known to erupt into tear-jerking, side-splitting guffaws.
As Rodney journeyed through Alzheimer's, the irony of singing Precious Memories while losing his own didn't bother him. His head still jerked to attention and his smile erupted whenever his teenage sweetheart and beloved wife of 60 years, Audrey, whispered "Hello, Rodney" in his ear. And he still gave a big toothless laugh every once and a while, for no other purpose than our merriment.
We will remember Rodney's stories, dreams and music with the fondness he felt for all of us and for life itself.
Yvonne HELWIG is Rodney's daughter.
