Cade William Gebbers was born March 4, 2002 in Spokane, Wash. to Johnny and Nikki Gebbers. Cade went to be with his Savior on March 17, 2021. Cade lived his 19 years of full and abundant life in Brewster, Wash. surrounded by his family and friends. He was the oldest of the Gebbers' sixth generation in Brewster and was always looked up to by his brothers and numerous first and second cousins. Cade was an excellent student, and he attended the Log Church Christian School through 6th grade and continued on in the Brewster Middle School and earned a 4.0 GPA. Cade attended Brewster High School for three years and earned a 3.9 GPA. Cade chose the Wenatchee Valley College Running Start online program for his senior year.
Cade was an accomplished 19-year-old with many academic and sport accolades to his name. His basketball team won the state championship last year for the 2B level and he was MVP of the state tournament and 2B Player of the Year for Washington State. Cade's dream was to play college basketball and there is no doubt that he would have been an exceptional college player. But Cade wasn't known only for his academic and sports success. All agreed that Cade was simply an incredible person. He had a wonderful character about him that was pure, genuine, and honest. Cade was really funny, and fun to be around and made those around him happy. Cade was a kind and selfless person; quiet and soft spoken. He was a great listener. He was a loving brother, cousin and friend. And, most importantly, he was a Christian.
Following the sad and unexpected passing of Cade, Cade's family have been honored with many stories told to them of deeds performed by Cade that changed people's lives or helped them through a challenging time. Cade's family is very proud of the man Cade became and enjoyed him tremendously. They will never forget his big smile, quick wit, kind heart and infectious laugh. We will all miss him dearly. Our comfort and confidence is knowing that Cade is in Heaven today, because he believed Christ died for him.
