Michael Iden Helgesen 1963 ~ 2006 Our dear son, dad, brother, uncle and friend, Michael Iden Helgesen, peacefully returned home to his Heavenly Father surrounded by his family on January 21, 2006 at the age of 42, after suffering a brain hemorrhage. Michael was born February 7, 1963 in Salt Lake City, Utah to John O. and Ingrid I. Helgesen. He graduated from East High School and then served an LDS mission to Norway. Mike married Lisa Hadley; later divorced. Mike worked for the U.S. Bankruptcy Court where he had many close friends. Mike was energetic, loved life and lived it to the fullest. Family was of major importance to Mike. The highest priority in his life was to spend time with his daughter Lauren, who was the light of his life. He loved being with family and friends playing games, watching movies, fantasy football, golfing, and Red Iguana Salsa. Mike had an amazing personality. Everyone that knew him loved him and wanted to spend time with him. His sense of humor will never be forgotten. Wherever we go there will be things that remind us of him. Mike set a great example to his family and we are eternally grateful.
