Town of Greece deputy supervisor dies

Rochester Business Journal
July 14, 2014

Jerry Helfer, deputy supervisor for the town of Greece since January and Monroe County assistant executive for 10 years before that, has died, town officials announced Monday.

Mr. Helfer’s death was confirmed by Supervisor William Reilich. The cause was not disclosed.

“Jerry was a very talented individual and a valuable asset to the town,” Reilich said in a statement.

Mr. Helfer was appointed deputy supervisor by Reilich following Reilich’s election as supervisor last November.

Mr. Helfer was assistant county executive from 2004 through 2013, and a Greece council member from 1998 through 2009. He was an assistant deputy in the Monroe County Clerk’s office from 1998 to 2003.

He also was a former member of the town planning board, the board of zoning appeals and the Greece Youth Board.

“Anyone who was fortunate to have known Jerry liked him,” Reilich said. “He was a gentle soul who had a deep concern for those around him. He will be sadly missed.”
