Obituary

Joseph J. "Joe" Helvitson, Sr. of Philadelphia died unexpectedly on July 1, 2021. He was 54. Joe was the beloved son of Ginny Kreuer and her husband Chuck, and the late Constant G. Helvitson; adored father of Joseph A. Helvitson and Joseph J. Helvitson, Jr; cherished brother of Donna Helvitson-Gray and Steve Helvitson; he is also survived by a loving extended family.

Joe was a diehard Philadelphia Eagles fan and the perpetual life of the party. During his working years, he held a few different titles, but truly found his calling in working with the children and their families of St. Christopher's Hospital as a security guard. Joe's bright personality and sense of humor will be sorely missed by all who had the opportunity to know him.

Relatives and friends are invited to his Life Celebration on Saturday, July 10, 2021 from 10:00 A.M. and Funeral Service beginning at 12:00 P.M. at the John F. Givnish Funeral Home, 10975 Academy Road, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania 19154. Interment will be private.

The family hopes that in lieu of flowers, charitable donations in Joe's name will be made to St. Christopher's Hospital Foundation for Children, 1800 JFK Boulevard, Suite 1550, Philadelphia, PA 19103.
