Gerald Keith Ebanks

November 6, 1940 — September 2, 2023

Gerald Keith Ebanks, lovingly known as Jerry, peacefully passed on September 2, 2023. He was an exceptional individual whose presence will forever be cherished in the hearts of those who knew him.

Born on November 6, 1940, in Port Arthur, TX, Jerry's life journey was one filled with remarkable accomplishments and unwavering dedication. He pursued an academic path that led him to Lamar Tech University, where he studied Geology. He then went on to earn his Master of Science from University of Texas. Jerry then pursued Petroleum Geology as his career.

Beyond his professional achievements, Jerry held dear the values of faith and family. He embodied integrity and honor in all aspects of his life. Deeply devoted to his family, friends, and the Lord, Jerry valued these relationships above all else. He possessed a remarkable kindness that endeared him to everyone he encountered. Jerry's love for storytelling was legendary and he loved to make others laugh.

Jerry had many different interests. Devoting more than two decades as a dedicated guitarist for his church community, Jerry used music to express his deep spirituality. He also shared his musical talent with the Brazos Valley Band. He had a deep love for geology and meteorology. He even collected rocks. Jerry had a green thumb and spent countless hours tending to his yard. He also loved to swim and hunt.

Above all else, Jerry cherished his role as a family man. In Bulinda Ebanks, his beloved wife, he found a partner whose unwavering support and love sustained him throughout their journey together. They celebrated 59 years of marriage in August.

Along with his wife, Bulinda, he is survived by his daughter, Cynthia Wade and her husband, Phil Wade; and his granddaughter, Paulina Wade.

Jerry is reunited in heaven with his sons, Keith Ebanks and Michael Ebanks; his mother, Doris Ebanks; his father, Bill Ebanks; and his brother, Jim Ebanks and his wife, Eleanor Ebanks.
