It was our pleasure to know Ebb. We moved to Lakeview in 1972, just two houses away. We often visited with Ebb and Reba when Ebb was working on his fabulous yard or sitting outside in their lawn chairs in the side yard. (We had a dachshund that we walked in the evenings). We loved his of humor and will always remember Ebb showing up at our door dressed up for Halloween. We are sorry we could not attend the memorial service.
Sincerely, Lois and Roger Hornbrook

Melvin and I've known Ebb and Reba for about 54years I worked with Ebb At Safeway stores all 4 of our children worked with Ebb in the bakery. We would play golf on Saturdays have dinner and play a wild game of dominos one of our grand daughters would crawl under the table and tie Ebbs shoestrings together he would get a big kick out of it. We went on several vacations together, Ebb and Reba always called me Willie, our whole family thought the world of Ebb and Reba and Terri. we will always have them in our hearts. Go play golf with Melvin till Reba and I get there. Love, Willie and children.🙏

Deepest sympathy and prayers to the family. Although I've known him for just a short time, he was a blessing to me indeed. Thank you for sharing him with us.

We met Ebb at the Lighthouse gym several years ago. Ebb and his wife "the Real Reba" as she first introduced herself enjoyed coffee and conversation before we would head to the pool or gym. They were a lovely couple who could easily and always finish each others sentences. May the Lord be with Reba while welcoming Ebb home.

We are so sad about Eb, such a great man, so friendly and helpful, would do anything for a neighbor in need. He was an anchor here in Lakeview and we will miss him very much.

Much love, Debra and John Cleary

What a great man Everett was! I met Eb at the Lighthouse a few years back and he was such an inspiration to all of us. I loved shooting basketball with Eb and at 90 years of age he always whipped my butt. He had a smoothest delivery of the basketball but would never show me any secrets! The positive attitude you always had was a cut above. You always were in a great mood and brought a smile to everyone's face in the gym.
The love and passion you had for life was over the top and most of all, "The absolute true, deep love for your beautiful wife Reba". You were a true inspiration to me my friend and I will truly miss coming by and seeing you. I love you so much pal and please get that basketball court ready for me in heaven. When you meet me at the gate, we will play a game of horse my friend.
Prayers to your wonderful family!
Love you always.
B.K.
