Dick's early years were spent in Imogene, Iowa. He attended school in both Imogene and Farragut. He later served for a short time in the United States Army. On August 6, 1998 he was united in marriage to Janice Jackson at the Nishna Valley Christian Church.

Dick was very handy. He enjoyed doing mechanical work on both automobiles and lawnmowers. He enjoyed dining at the Depot Deli with family and friends. He never knew a stranger. He was the type of guy who could talk to anyone about anything. The conversations that he had were always welcomed and heartwarming. If you knew him, then you were considered his friend.

Dickie was a life long friend of my Dad, Richard Price so we grew up around him and his family. He was always one to smile and joke with everyone. He will be missed. Prayers to the family. R.I.P Dickie

To the family of Darwin ( Dickie) Ebersole,

I just read that a good friend , Dickie Ebersole has passed and gone away to be with his Lord and Savior.

I've known Dickie for most of my life. We grew up together as his family were my neighbor before moving to Shenandoah. He always took me for rides on his motorcycle whenever asked. I believe he used to work on cars as well. My dad would always call him Dickie Dew drop.

During the many years of knowing him I've never not known him to say anything bad about another person. He was a gentle soul with a big heart. We may have lost a friend, a loved one an uncle ,brother& father , and husband but in the end the good Lord has received another angel

So anytime when you're looking at the stars just think of them as porch lights always on waiting for their loved ones to come home.

MAy God bless and comfort you during this time of your loss. Dickie dew drop will be greatly.

Sincerely ,

Donna , Jeffrey, & Matthew Magers
