Uldis Ezernieks, age 71, of Alexandria VA & Memphis, TN passed away at INOVA Fairfax Hospital in Alexandria, VA on Saturday, 11 May 2013 of complications from Wegener's Granulomatosis, a rare form of vasculitis. He was born in Gulbene, Latvia in 1941 and spent his early childhood there. He left Latvia with his family to escape the ravages of WWII and made the long journey through war torn Latvia to Germany. After spending time in a US Army displaced persons camp in Germany, he & his family immigrated in 1947 to America, where they became naturalized citizens. They settled in Memphis, TN, where he attended Bellevue Elementary School and graduated from East High School in 1959. He attended CBC in Memphis before joining the US Army. During his deployment to Augsburg, Germany in 1965 he married Linda Boyd of Memphis, TN. After completing his Army tour, he and Linda remained in Augsburg, where their two children were born. He worked as a civilian employee for the Department of the Army in Augsburg from 1966 to 1974 and as an employee of the Department of Defense Schools in Giessen, Germany from 1974 to 2003. In 2004, after retirement, he and Linda moved to Alexandria, VA where he enjoyed visiting museums in the area. Uldis was a talented, creative and innovative person, who was dedicated to excellence in craftsmanship in everything he made or built, and was happiest when he had a project to work on. He enjoyed WWII documentaries and history. He loved his family and cousins and always thought fondly of the good times spent with them. He will be remembered for his kindness, his creativity, his willingness to help others and his patience in teaching and sharing his knowledge. Even though he is no longer here, he was much loved and will be in our hearts forever. He is survived by his wife of 48 years, Linda, his son, Kevin, his daughter, Vanessa, his niece Jennifer Tomes, his nephew Greg King and his cousins, Maruta Krastins, Juris Jurbergs and Atis Jurbergs.
