Howard R. Ebert, Sr., 75, passed away Wednesday, May 23, 2012 at St. Mary's Hospice, surrounding by his family.
Howard was born Feb. 26, 1937 in Two Harbors, Minn., to Howard and Margaret (Rasmussen) Ebert.
He graduated from Two Harbors High School. He was drafted into the Army and served during the Korean Conflict. He worked for St. Louis County as an equipment operator until his retirement. He married Ann Gambrel on Oct. 19, 1957 and lived in Duluth and the Meadowlands area where they raised their children. They were blessed with many grandchildren who they loved very much.
Howard enjoyed the country life, raising animals, and gardening. Many of his animals became pets and it was hard for him to see them leave. He enjoyed his Vikings and Twins, and pretty much all sports. He especially enjoyed his Sunday get-togethers with family and friends in the "Beer Garden".
He was predeceased by his wife Ann; his father Howard; and his son-in-law Jeff Otten.
