Clinton Charles Ebert

October 28, 1926December 26, 2019

Clinton C. Ebert, age 93, passed away at home on December 26, 2019 in Apache Junction, AZ. Born on October 28, 1926 in Cumru Township, Berks County, PA to the late Clint Charlton Ebert & Miriam Freeman Ebert.

Clinton was a 1944 graduate of Shillington High School and participated in the Drum and Bugle Corp. in Shillington. In the spirit of the “Greatest Generation”, he enlisted into the Armed Forces on September 14, 1944. He proudly served in the US Navy on board the USS Potter County LST 1086, where he served as a cook & baker, Seaman First Class in the Pacific Theater. Clinton received the Pacific Theater Ribbon, American Theater Ribbon and Victory Medal before his honorable discharge on August 3, 1954. He returned to his hometown of Reading, PA and learned machinist tool & die trade post WWII working for several companies in that area.

Clinton married Theresa M. Cote (daughter of Patrick Cote & Lucie Cyr Cote of Madawaska, Maine) on August 14, 1954, at St. John Baptist de la Salle in Shillington, PA. After several years living in Reading, PA, he moved his family to East Hartford, CT where he was employed by Pratt & Whitney Aircraft and later by United Technologies as a tool & die machinist. He retired in 1986 and hit the road with Theresa plus one cat in their RV and drove across the US and most of Canada too. They had many adventures from east coast to west coast but eventually settled in Apache Junction, AZ.

Clinton is survived by a son, Michael C. Ebert, of Bowdoinham, ME; daughter Patricia A. Tyrone, of Apache Junction, AZ; brother in law Rey Cyr, of Austin, TX and several nieces & nephews.

His beloved wife of 62 years, Theresa M. Ebert (nee Cote) predeceased him in 2016. He was also predeceased by his three sisters, Anne Ebert Seiverling, of Nashville, TN; Betty Ebert Buerher, of Mohnton and Vivian Ebert Cake, of Reading,PA.

Clinton had 93 orbits around the sun and had a well-lived & full life, proudly served his country in WWII, married his soulmate & had a successful career and retirement. That’s not only a full life but a rich life.

Our deepest sympathy to you and your family. Clint was a great father and friend. He was always willing to help. One of my memories is going to Snyder pretzel factory to get Clint his favorite pretzels! Another is when he drove Trish and I to our trailhead, very thoughtful. I admired his love for his wife, daughter and son. He was truly one of the "great ones" in this lifetime. God bless, Sheri, Alan and family

Too many memories to recall, but guarantee they were all around one adventure or an other. That does not seem surprising after reading so many events in Clint's life. My deepest sympathies to Trish and the family. Some times there are no words for the feeling of the heart....I pray for peace through this difficult time for you all!
