LOUIS EDWIN GEBBERT
AUSTIN - Louis Edwin "Bubsie" Gebbert, a resident of Austin, passed on April 20, 2013 at the age of 84. Louis was born on August 20, 1928 in Goliad, Texas to Louise and Edwin Gebbert of Goliad, and had 3 siblings Jess, Don and Joanne.
He was preceded in death by his wife, Joy Burke Gebbert; and four children, Wynn, Austin, Burke and Gay.
Louis is survived by his wife, Nathalie Kirk; his daughter, Barbara Bryant; and 4 grandchildren, Elizabeth, Melisa, Jason and Christopher.
He relocated to Austin in 1970, where he bought a house and a beautiful piece of property on the outskirts of town. The children had horses, goats and every animal in between. Louis loved to work the land with his family and kept a beautiful vegetable garden in his backyard each year.
Louis's favorite memories were from the times he spent in the United States Army, as well as his 40 years with the Southwestern Bell Telephone Co., and his travels including trips to Korea, Japan, France, Alaska, Hawaii and all over the States.
He was a man of unwavering work ethic and loyalty. He took so much pride in everything he did up until his very last day.
As the rock of our family, we are gracious to know him and he will be sorely missed.
There will be a gathering held at a later date for family and close friends.
