George J. Wentland, 89, of Bristol, passed away peacefully at Countryside Manor on Friday, April 24, 2020.  He was the husband of Marilyn Jean (King) Wentland, with whom he shared 64 years of marriage.

Born and raised in Bristol, he was a son of the late Robert and Emilie (Rindfleisch) Wentland.  He attended local schools, and proudly served his country in the U.S. Air Force.  George and the love of his life, Jean, settled in their hometown, where they raised their three sons and were longtime devoted members and volunteers at St. Andrew Evangelical Lutheran Church.  A man of strong faith, he will forever be remembered as a loyal father, grandfather, and friend leaving a legacy of kindness, love and many cherished memories.

In addition to his wife, Jean, he was a beloved "Poppy", and leaves his grandchildren, Kacey, Tyler, Kyle, Ryan, Chad, Molly, Nicholas and Michael Wentland, and Justin Zakrzewski, along with many great-grandchildren.  He was predeceased by his three sons, Barry, Scott and Jeffrey Wentland, and his siblings, Ruffina, Caroline, Wilhelmina, Robert, Paul, Della, and Frances.
