Harris R. Ebert Harris R. Ebert, 76, of Inverness, Florida, and formerly of Elwood, passed away Monday, July 30, 2018, surrounded by his family at Community Heart and Vascular Hospital in Indianapolis following a very sudden illness on July 4.
He was born Jan. 22, 1942, in Elwood, the son of Raymond W. and Hilda A. (Tulowitzky) Ebert. Harris worked at Guide Lamp division of General Motors (and Delphi) in Anderson as a tool and die maker for 36 years and retired in 1999.

Harris was an avid sports fan, and enjoyed playing baseball and softball throughout his life. He also formerly coached Babe Ruth Baseball. He especially enjoyed music, playing his guitar with family and friends, riding motorcycles, and sports cars. Harris truly enjoyed traveling to Germany on many occasions with Sissy to visit her family. More than anything, Harris loved all his family and truly enjoyed his life - living every day to the fullest.
