Eric Gebelein, '69
(Reference: Rebecca Waud, 10 February 2002)
To Our Dearest Friends and Family,
I want to let you all know that Eric passed away on Sunday, February 3, 2002. He went peacefully in his sleep as I was sitting with him at his bedside. I am sorry it has taken some time to get this out to you all but I am sure you understand.
He has suffered so long and this is truly a blessing that his soul is free to once again run through the Enchantments and visit the Island of Fiji, which he loved so much.
We are having a Celebration of Life on Sunday, February 10th, 2002 from 1:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. at the Sleeping Lady Resort here in Leavenworth. If you can attend, that would be great. Eric didn't think a place was worth going to if you couldn't wear jeans so please wear whatever you're comfortable in. Those of you who are runners, feel free to wear your favorite running shirts as well.
Thank you for all your support and kind thoughts.
