It is with heavy hearts we announce the passing of Barry Edward Ebeling on Saturday, February 22, 2014 at the Red Deer Regional Hospital Palliative Care Unit at the age of 55 years. Our beloved husband, father, grandfather, brother, uncle, nephew and dear friend was born in Fairmont, Minnesota, USA to Gaylord and Rosella Ebeling and raised with 11 siblings. Barry came to Canada in 2009 and made his home in Red Deer with his wife, Karen (nee Ilk). He loved his work at the Westerner Exposition Association- riding his paint sprayer he nicknamed “Hardley Davidson”. He also enjoyed small engine repair, wood projects, karaoke and triking.
Those we love don’t go away;
they walk beside us every day.
Unseen, unheard, but always near;
still loved, still missed, still very dear.
Love you Bear.
