Michael Lee Ebel was born on February 10, 1954, in Denison, Texas. He was the son of O’Dean & Joan Ebel, and the brother of Steve Ebel and Sharon Janssen. He was married to his former wife, Karen Hagan for over 18 years, and raised 2 children, Jennie Lynn Austin, and Brent Sinclair, in Louisiana. He and his second wife, Laura Wass were very active in the raising of their grandson, William Wass.
He was a kind, hard-working, and loving man, with a great sense of humor.
He was an extremely talented trim carpenter and fine woodworker. In his 40-year career, he managed to use his artistic vision and create legendary work all around the southern states. Some of his work was featured in magazines such as, “Parade of Homes,” and “Southern Living.” His guidance and advise touched many lives and he was a mentor to many others.
Growing up in a military family, he lived in different areas of the U.S. He developed a love for the water, fishing and boating. Some of his happiest moments, were spent on the beaches of Hawaii, bayous of Louisiana, and the lakes of Oklahoma. He enjoyed the simple things in life, like reading a good war story, growing tomatoes and okra in a garden, and a bike ride on a sunny day.
In his later years, he developed Chronic Obstructive pulmonary disease or COPD, which causes limited airflow to the lungs. He was a prideful, funny, and dedicated man. He may not be physically here with us now, but his memory will live on forever.
He leaves behind a brother, Steve Ebel, a sister, Sharion Janssen, a son, Brent Sinclair, a daughter, Jennie Austin, as well as 5 grandkids; Adrianna Austin, Su’Vanna Daves Moody, John-Michael Nugent, Stevie Lynn Sinclair, William Wass.
