James Christopher Hellman
James Christopher Hellman II (Jim ) 48, went to be with the Lord after an apparent heart attack on April 30, 2021.
He was born January 13, 1973 in Erie to James and Betty (Palmer) Hellman of Erie.
Jim graduated from McDowell High School in 1991. He worked for over 15 years for Erie Insurance. Jim loved spending time with family and friends, golfing, boating and fishing, but there was nothing more important to Jim than his wife and two sons. He was always their #1 fan in everything they did. He was a die-hard Steelers and Duke Blue Devils fan. He was famous for his Friday night bonfires, featuring karaoke performances, great music, cornhole, Bud Light and Fireball. Jim was a member of the Elk Valley Golf League and was a Son of the American Legion Post #773 where he played in their cornhole league.
In addition to his parents, he is survived by his loving wife of 19 years, Laura (Braggins) Hellman, two sons, Logan James and Zachary James, who were the light of his life; his sister, Heather Hellman (Charles) Newton; brother Timothy (Amie) Hellman; nephews, Drew, Luke, Josh and Connor; his parents-in-law, Jim and Kathy Braggins; a sister-in-law, Anne Braggins; and so many close friends (who meant the world to him). He was truly loved and will be deeply missed.
