August 5, 1944 - August 20, 2020
Ronald Ralph Ebberts was born in Neodesha, Kansas to Ralph and Genevieve (Brink) Ebberts.
The family moved from Kansas to Egnar, CO when Ron was three years old. He attended school at Egnar, CO and graduated from the Egnar High School in 1962. He married ""the love of his life"", Barbara Highley on November 30, 1962. To this union were born a son, Ronald Curtis and a daughter, Lori Ann.
Ron dearly loved each and every one of his family and his main goal in life was working and providing for his family. Over the course of his life, he was involved in mining, truck driving, farming, ranching and construction with moving dirt his most favorite. When he had the time, which wasn't often due to his dedication to work, he liked to prospect, collect and work on classic cars, and most of all visiting with people. He didn't know a stranger!
Ron passed away peacefully at his home in Egnar, CO on August 20, 2020.
Ron is survived by his wife Barbara of 57 years; his son Curtis (Delana) Ebberts of Farmington, NM; his daughter Lori Ebberts of Egnar, CO; five grandchildren - Preston (Rachael) Holley, Freddie (Colton) Isom, Tyler (Shelby) Ebberts, Tristan (Kylee) Ebberts and Nathan Ebberts; also five great-grandchildren - Dawson Ebberts, Kingsley Isom, Clayton, Isom, Kliason Isom and Lane Ebberts.
