Scott Louis Helmreich joined his brother, Jay, in heaven on March 4, 2023 due to a stroke caused by a minor ski accident on January 23, 2023.
Scott was an expert on the slopes; gliding side to side, as if he were flying. Scott’s last days were spent in the home he loved and where he grew up surrounded by his mom, dad, family, dear friends, and his cat, Daisy.
A most nurturing person, Scott was always starting seedlings, raising worms, beekeeping, growing organic herbs for his smoothies, and chipping wood for his gardens and grass.
Scott was a self-taught drummer and enjoyed all music, especially classical. Scott and his brother, Jay, a pianist and bass player, always enjoyed playing music together.
Scott loved books and could teach himself anything. He was selfless and had a tender heart for all those suffering. Scott loved the Lord and dug into the Bible for his own understanding.
Scott and his dad grew to be very close. Scott recently closed his real estate firm and rejoined his father, David, at the Landings Company.
Scott had an innate engineering mind; however, he switched his major to business economics and graduated from Georgia Southern University.
Scott and Jay were the light of their parents' lives. Truly they were gentle souls in a harsh world.
Scott is survived by his adoring mother and father, Beckie and David; and his aunts, uncles, cousins and friends that will all dearly miss him.
Scott was a member of the Savannah Board of Realtors, Kiwanis Club of Savannah, Skidaway Audubon, a weekly Men's Bible study he attended with his dad, and Compassion Christian Church East Campus.
Visitation will be held Tuesday, March 7, 2023 from 10:00 a.m. until 12:00 p.m. at Compassion Christian Church East Campus with a funeral service to immediately follow at 12:00 p.m.
In lieu of flowers, the family suggest you consider donating in Scott's memory to Skidawayaudubon.org, designation Sparrow Field Pollinator Gardens, 600 Landings Way South, Savannah, Georgia 31411.
I don’t need to tell you how much we loved and adored Scott. He was our adopted family. It felt as though he and Mark were brothers. They grew up together and in each other’s homes. He didn’t need to be blood to be our family. Y’all were outstanding parents and raised him up to be a wonderful man. Please know we are ALWAYS here for you. Love, Alice

Dear David and Beckie, We are here for you, crying tears, and saying prayers. We’re so sorry for your tragic loss. Scott will be missed by all that knew him, such a sweet soul. Truly heartbroken.
- Teri and Chip Grayson, Savannah, GA
Both Scott and Jay may have been cousins. But they felt like distant Brothers. I cannot fathom that they're both gone away. I had just recently been reconnecting more with Scott. We reflected on his return to Uncle David's firm, and how much respect he'd gained for what David built. And gratefulness to be welcomed back. I felt great measures of character not just in what he said, but how he said it. And surely no lack of love nor respect for his family. The last we spoke I shared with Scott I was planning to come down to visit either in March or April. A long overdue trip. And he sounded quite excited at the idea. For what little measure that might play, I'm thankful that the last time we spoke it was something he might have felt happy about and looked forward to. That I will not be able to complete that visit is a lesson to all to seize good opportunities and cherish your loved ones daily. Scott now joins Jay as someone I miss, love, and think about daily.

Beckie and David, my heart breaks for you both learning that Scott has passed away. No words of comfort will ever be enough for someone who has lost two sons so tragically. I pray that God grants you the strength to overcome this difficult time in your life and give you peace in the days to come. I'm here if you need anything at all.
- Pam Chance, Pooler, GA
I am beyond words to know what to say to express my sympathies to you and your family at this most difficult time. I hope your deep faith and fondest memories will sustain you in knowing your sons loved life and will be well remembered by those with whom they crossed paths.

I always enjoyed talking with Scott about music and our shared love for wellness. I’ve been listening to a band he told me about when we were kids. We had some great conversations as adults I will never forget. You were taken way too soon, dear cousin. All our love and prayers to aunt Beckie and uncle David.

- John and Gay Oldfield , Savannah , Georgia
I was heartbroken when I heard about what happened to Scott. He reached out to me this past New Years wishing me a happy new year ahead to which I responded the same and told him I hoped he and his parents were doing well. That warmly unexpected gesture of his sparked a renewed hope in me that perhaps now we would stay in touch more often and reconnect over the interests we shared throughout the years like computers and engineering. During one of his more recent visits to St. Louis, we talked at length about him wanting to build his first PC because he was eager to try his hand at it. I remember how impressed I was by him not feeling the least bit intimidated to take on a project as daunting as building a computer from scratch despite not having ever really done something like that before. But his ability to have so many different interests and hobbies yet maintain the same level of curiosity and knowledge across all of them was undeniably one of his many great attributes. Uncle David and Aunt Beckie, I’m so very sorry for your loss and send you my love in this unimaginably difficult time. Be at peace now, sweet cousin.
- Brian Robinson, St. Louis, MO
