Obituary for Kenneth Mervin Ebert

July 6, 1953 – February 1, 2020

Ken Ebert passed away peacefully on February 1st, 2020 at the age of 66 years.

Ken was born in Jasper, Alberta and grew up in Prince George, British Columbia. He moved to Edmonton at 18 years of age to work in the Oil and Gas Industry. This was the start of a long career where he held many different positions in some of the most remote locations in northern Canada eventually bringing him to Grande Prairie where he has lived for the last 39 years. While working in Grande Prairie he spent 10 years working for Halliburton, 5 years as district manager for Nabors Production Services, and for the final 12 years of his career he worked as as a consultant. He was active within his community and was proudly named Oilman of the Year at the 2007 Peace Region Petroleum Show.

Ken will be lovingly remembered by his children Robin and Kevin, his sisters Liberty, Traci, Jennifer, and their children; and his best friend, ex-wife Lynn. Ken was known for being a proud and loving father and his many lifelong friends will remember him for his humour, integrity, and devotion.

A Celebration of Life will be held on Sunday, February 9th at 1:00 PM at Bear Creek Funeral Home (11802 99 Avenue, Grande Prairie.)

Condolences

Ken will always be remembered by me as one of the best men a soul could know, and he will never be forgotten. Eric Schmelzl

Ken was always a great part of our family. He will be missed by all of us. Ken and I spent much time together growing up together when he often visited us in Smithers. We hiked together, fished together and just thoroughly enjoyed our young lives together. My memories of Ken will always include that rather unique little chuckle he had - even as a kid. Something about it was infectious! As would be expected, over the years life and its various forms of work etc moved us apart from our childhood closeness. However, we did get together on frequent family events as they occurred during the past 50 years. It was always easy to "catch up" on things with Ken as it was as though we had always been in touch, even though we did not make great efforts to write etc. Ken will be missed not only by his many friends but even more so by his extended family members who, like myself, will cherish the many memories of an individual who was special to all of us!

I was so saddened to hear of Kens' passing. I was fortunate enough to have gotten to know him through the oil industry, with all of its' ups and downs over the years...enjoyed doing business with him and had some great visits at the Grande Prairie Petroleum Association events through the years. Many condolences to the family.
