Horst Ebert peacefully passed away on Sept. 26, 2017, at Providence Hospital in Anchorage, Alaska, among family, after a short battle with cancer. Horst was born Oct. 29, 1950, in Schleswig, West Germany.
At 13, he relocated to Fairbanks, Alaska, with his parents, where he attended Lathrop High School until he voluntarily enlisted in the Navy, and was stationed on the USS Shangri-La. He was honorably discharged after his call of duty in Vietnam, returning to Fairbanks, where he met Pamela Wilson, whom he married. Together they raised 2 sons and a daughter. At that time, he attended UAF studying electronics as well. Over the years he utilized his knowledge and skills as a repairman for Sears for two decades, then was contracted by the VA Domiciliary where he spent nearly a decade beautifying their grounds.
In his final years, he spent "semi-retirement" working part time in maintenance at ABT and exercised his green thumb beautifying his yard at home. He had a vast array of interests and hobbies, including most anything electronic and tech related. Horst, along with his kids, collected many trophies building and racing RC cars. He loved both building and operating his high end gaming computers, listening to rock and roll at maximum volume, turning wrenches and novice woodworking. He always loved camping and fishing, especially at Fielding Lake, with his family and friends.
He is survived by his son, Sean Ebert; daughter, Jamie Ebert; and grandchildren, Kailyn Herring and Eric Ebert-Green, all of Anchorage, Alaska. Horst was proceeded in death by his parents, Jimmie & Clara Hoppe; his son, Eric Ebert; and his wife, Pamela Ann Ebert, whom he loved until the end.
