Dennis Allan Gebers went to be with the Lord Saturday, Aug. 31, 2013.
Mr. Gebers was born April 13, 1953, to Loren and Inez (Woerlen) Gebers.
He grew up in Johnson, NE and graduated from Johnson-Brock High School in 1971. He attended Midland University in Fremont, NE and married Cindy Moritz. They went to Golden Valley College in Minneapolis, MN and later Dennis transferred and graduated from Grace College of the Bible in Omaha, NE.
He had four children, Rachel, Joshua, Michealia and Bill. Dennis was a dedicated father, lay minister, pressman and worked with various groups and organizations helping “his fellow man.”
Dennis married Diane McCain on May 21, 1993. He then added four more children to his extended family, Sonja, Dawn, Joshua, and Sarah, along with four grandchildren. Dennis continued working with group homes and a Drug and Alcohol Recovery House. He and Diane took over a bed and breakfast called “The Kirschke House” and they also had foster children to care for in their home. “Grandpa” Dennis’ family grew with 12 “grandchildren” and 10 “great-grandchildren.”
Dennis loved God first and foremost in his life and had a strong loyalty and love for his family. He had a very quick wit, humor and a winning smile because he loved life. Dennis enjoyed his relationship with Jesus, nature, science, and the simple pleasures in life like fishing, reading, and gardening. His greatest joy was to talk to anyone about their relationship to Jesus, showing how one could have the forgiveness and the love of Jesus in their life forever.
Dennis and Diane moved to Johnson, NE in November of 2009 to be closer to his mother, Inez. He worked with adults who have disabilities through SENDS in Auburn. Dennis fought the good fight with his health issues for many years and shared the love of Jesus with everyone. He looked forward with extreme anticipation of going “home” to be with the Father.
Survivors include two sisters and a brother-in-law, Teresa Gebers, Marcia and Ira Beasterfield; two brothers and sisters-in-law, Duane and Sandy Gebers and Phil and Angie Gebers; and many nieces and nephews.
He was preceded in death by his father, Loren Gebers.
He will be missed very much by his family and friends.
