LARRY FRANKLIN EBERT

 July 5th 1945- January 17th 2024

We’re saddened to announce the sudden passing of Larry, of natural causes, on January 17th at the age of 78. He was the beloved husband to Kathryn for 54 years and cherished father of Heather (Jason) and Travis (Angela). He was a loving and devoted papa to Hunter (Maeve), Cole (Christina), Seth, Maddison and Rowan. He will be missed by his brothers, Bill (Margaret), Keith (Suzie), and Harry (Marnie), as well as his brother in law, Bill (Gina) and sister in law Merilyn. His character will be fondly remembered by all his nieces, nephews and many friends.

Larry worked at General Motors for 42 years, and enjoyed his retirement for the last 15 years.

Larry was an upstanding man that loved his family more than anything. He loved most sports, especially playing golf. Larry was a big Cleveland Browns, Toronto Blue Jays and Tony Stewart fan. Of late Larry kept busy and found purpose in collecting cans and doing crossword puzzles. Papa had a fun and youthful spirit and a strong presence, and he will greatly be missed.

Larry also routinely gave blood and has over 100 donations. Please feel free to donate your blood or money to the Canadian blood services, on his behalf.

A memorial service for Larry will be held at 11am on Saturday, January 27, 2024 at Lampman Funeral Home, 724 Canboro Rd, Fenwick On, L0S 1C0. Funeral arrangements have been entrusted to Lampman Funeral Home. www.lampmanfuneralhome

  • Larry always had a laugh or a funny remark whenever you saw him. Kathy and I worked together for many years , and Larry’s smiling face was frequently seen. Love to you and your family Kathy.

  • So sorry to hear of Larry’s passing. One of those people that have know for a life time. Thinking of Kathy and her family

  • Our deepest condolences to Kathy and family and to the extended Ebert families. I grew up in the village of Fenwick ON with Larry and his twin brother Harry. We were the same age and we enjoyed all the activities that young rural children enjoyed; bicycling, working in the fruit orchards of various local farms, fishing, all manner of games and in particular baseball. We practiced and played regularly and were rewarded in Minor Baseball with two Ontario Provincial Championships in our division. As years passed and we progressed into adulthood, our lives all took different paths but we managed to keep in touch and get together on the occasional basis. I know that Larry kept up with the sports and active lifestyle because we played slow pitch baseball with the Welland Slow Pitch league during the 80’s and 90’s. To lose such an energetic and family loving father and husband and dear friend in such a sudden manner is difficult to process. I treasure our friendship and hold those memories closely and always will . Rest in Peace my dear friend

  • I grew up playing hockey/soccer with Hunter and we’ve grown to become great friends. I don’t think Larry missed any games, he was always there supporting our team no matter the circumstances, giving us tips, showing us the games we love to this day. Everytime you would see him, it was never a bad day, always smiling and cracking jokes when we were younger. One moment I can reflect on is at Hunter’s wedding, when he grabbed the microphone and had everyone laughing and smiling the entire time. RIP to a great man and we cherish all of the memories he left for us all.
