David Ebert

Highlands, NC - On November 23, 2011, Dave began a journey down a path to survive pancreatic cancer. The obstacles on his route became too great on December 15, 2012. Dave was predeceased by his father, Robert J. Ebert; his sister, Pat; brother, Bill, and brother, Ted.

Giving him strength to carry on was Sam Gunter, his devoted partner of 33 years and spouse since March 23, 2012. Family members missing Dave are his mother, Hazel of Visalia, CA; brother, Jack (Cheryl) of Johnson City, NY; brother, Tom of Clovis, CA; sister in law, Geordie (Ted) of Visalia, CA; sister in law, Paula (Bill) of Rancho Mirage, CA and brother in law, Jay Dann (Pat). His loving in laws include mother in law, Ruth Gunter; brother in law Don (Jim); sister in law, Carol (Frank) Hall; sister in law, Joyce (Cecil) McLean; sister in law, Mary Ann Gunter, all of SC, along with numerous aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces and nephews, all of whom will feel his absence. Dave was a personality who gathered friends wherever he went, many of whom traveled far and often to support him through this difficult time, for which he always expressed gratitude and love.

Dave was born in Oswego, NY on October 3, 1954, educated at St. Paul's Academy, Oswego Catholic High School, and graduated from Kings College in Wilkes Barre, PA. After pursuits in the furniture industry and antique business, Dave spent most of his career as senior director marketing at AT&T in Atlanta, GA. Dave would say that his hobby was carpentry, but he was an artist who knew how to draw out the beauty in whatever he saw, be it flowers, yards, furniture, or houses. Most notable is the 1797 house in Washington, GA on which he and Sam were completing authentic restoration. Without question, Dave recognized the beauty in people as well, never was heard uttering an unkind word, always a gentleman, known for his imagination, humor, commitment, intensity, and patience. Everyone who knew Dave appreciated these qualities, as noted by his former AT&T senior vice president Jerry Cheadle, "I know you will continue to make significant contributions to the good of our society because that is an important part of who you are."

Services and burial for Dave, took place on December 22, 2012 in Highlands, NC. A later celebration of remembrance will be scheduled in the spring of 2013 for all who wish to express their thoughts and memories, but were unable to attend at this time.

In place of flowers, kindly consider a donation to Johns Hopkins Pancreatic Cancer Research Center, Kimmel Development Office, 1 Charles Center, Suite 234, Baltimore, MD 21201. Further, please pray that Dave's experience can help to lead down the path to the end of this disease.
