Robert N. ‘Doc’ Helton, MD


Longtime staff member Dr. Robert N. Helton, MD, passed away on New Years Eve Day.  You might know Doc from his admonition at every meeting to “get your flu shots!”  Doc served in the USAF as a Flight Surgeon, the same position that he held with Grampaw Pettibone Squadron.  He joined GPS in 1994 and was a Life Member.  In 2003 Doc received the GPS Fellowship Award for “contributions of service and dedication to the Squadron” that was significantly above that which is expected.  A Memorial Service will take place at the Yorba Linda Methodist Church, 19002 East Yorba Linda Boulevard, Yorba Linda, CA 92886, at 3:00 p.m. on January 19, 2020 (Sunday).  I hope that many of you can attend.  Doc tried to attend every luncheon and every staff meeting throughout the time that he was a member of GPS.  He will be missed by all.
