Obituary for James Robert Belz

His Legacy… James Robert Belz, 77, passed away September 29, 2019. He was born on May 20, 1942 in Detroit, Michigan to Robert and Helen (Schreiner) Belz. James married Helen (Biggs) on March 18, 1967 in Detroit, Michigan. He will be remembered as a wonderful, caring husband and father. He had a romantic side, always bringing flowers for his wife of 52 years, Helen. His daughters see him as loving, silly, an outside the box thinker, who enjoyed being a life-long learner. He taught himself many skills and loved photography, music, traveling, exploring and fixing things.
He was smart and resourceful, was always comfortable being his own person and usually had a unique way of getting things done. He found joy in writing, painting and drawing cartoons, and he loved children and animals. He was a faithful Christian man. His grandnieces say, “Heaven has got an awesome guy in their hands (Jane),” and he is “an absolute legend” (Aimee).
His Family… James will be missed by his wife, Helen; his children, Laura Belz, Sandy Belz (Kevin Haman) and Elaine Belz; grandchildren, Jack Haman and Andy Haman; Siblings, Kay (Mike) Serio and Carl (Kim) Belz, and many nieces and nephews. He is preceded in death by his parents, Robert and Helen Belz.
