Ernie was born Aug. 20, 1928. He entered into the U.S. Navy during World War II in the South Pacific aboard the aircraft carrier U.S.S. Tarawa.

He attended the Ninilchik United Methodist Church. Hunting and fishing were his two favorite hobbies.

The family wrote, “We will miss his molasses cookies, his warm smile and big hugs. We will all miss him greatly; he was a great giver of himself and his heart.” 

He was preceded in death by his parents, one brother and three sisters. 

He is survived by his wife, Lee Wentworth of Ninilchik; son, Bruce A. Wentworth of Roseburg, Ore.; daughters, Molly C. Wentworth of Ninilchik, Carla Wentworth of South Dakota and Bonnie Kline of Palm Dale, Calif.; and nephew, Bruce R. Yeager of Seattle.
