To the Family: It was with sadness that I read of the death of Mr. Ebel, you have my deepest sympathy. I worked with him twice at Ivanhoe, before he transferred and after he returned there before he retired. Having met him in 1980, I can say that his family was the light of his life, his children and his beloved "BeBe"!May your happy memories of him enjoying life sustain you at this hour of grief.
