Ron Helm, Secretary

Ron L. Helm, C.Hg., C.E.G.

Mr. Helm and his wife, Katherine, joined the Desert Mountain community with the purchase of their Cochise Ridge home approximately three years ago.   However, their relationship with Desert Mountain began twenty-five years ago when his wife’s family moved to Desert Mountain. Today, four generations of the Helm family enjoy this fabulous community.  Mr. Helm has the unique experience of seeing Desert Mountain through his wife’s perspective (a 25-year view), and his perspective as a relatively new member.  Last year, his wife retired; they purchased their full-time residence in the Village of Lone Mountain II to accommodate their two daughters and four grandchildren (with a fifth grandchild expected mid next year). They currently own two Desert Mountain homes.
