Gerhard “Gerry” Ebbers

Sep 16, 1935 - Dec 25, 2022


Even though we mourn the loss of our dad, Gerhard (Gerry) Jacob Ebbers, age 87, we rejoice in his home going to His Faithful Lord and Savior on Christmas day, December 25, 2022.
Gerry was born September 16, 1935, the youngest of seven children to Lammert and Elberdina Cornelia (Schut) in Ermelo, The Netherlands.
In May of 1954, Gerry immigrated to Canada. In Canada he met the love of his life, Teuny Stolker, at the wedding of his sister and brother-in-law, Corry and Ted Vlaming. They were married on July 26, 1958, at the Second Christian Reformed Church in Weston, Ontario, Canada. Teuny preceded him in death on April 24, 2020.
In 1962, the family moved to Sheboygan where Gerry worked for a few weeks at Buteyn Excavating, then at TeSele Auto Dealership, and retiring from The Sheboygan Glass Company in 2000 after 35 years.
Gerry was an active member of Christ Community Church and served His Lord and Savior with gladness. He served as Sunday School Superintendent at Beacon Light Chapel. He was involved with the Boys Club as leader. He served many years leading worship services at various nursing homes in Sheboygan. Gerry also served as an elder and deacon and on other various committees in church.
Gerry and Teuny were involved with Meals on Wheels and The Good As New Shop in Cedar Grove for the Sheboygan Christian School.
To dad, his family was very important. He was very thankful to the Lord for blessing him with a loving wife, being a dad to his children and a loving Opa to his grandchildren and great grandchildren.
Gerry is survived by his five children: Gerald Ebbers (Yvonne Otte), Marilyn Ebbers, Joyce (Tom) Nagel, Rick (Gwen) Ebbers and Ken (Lucinda) Ebbers, grandchildren: Johnathon (Amber) Nagel, Tyler (Laura) Ebbers, Jaymee Ebbers, Tessa (Brian Hofman), Spencer Ebbers, Michelle Nagel, Austin Ebbers, Caleb Ebbers, Jared Ebbers and Paige Ebbers, great-grandchildren: Liam, Tobias, Willa and Alistair Nagel; Laine and Mia Hofman.
He is further survived by his sister Corry Vlaming of Canada, brothers-in-law Ernst (Ludy) Stolker and Sander (Toos) Stolker, sisters-in-law Jenny Stolker, Jenette Stolker, Dickey (Henk) Van Ingen Schanau, and Loes (Peter John Schouton) Stolker all of The Netherlands. He is also survived by many nieces and nephews in various parts of the world.
