Gary Wentworth Obituary
Gary Lee Wentworth was born to Harold and Ellen Wentworth on March 10, 1948 in Bakersfield, California. Gary graduated from East Bakersfield High School in 1966 and enlisted in the United States Marine Core where he served in Vietnam. He married Marilyn Williams in 1969 and was a loving father to five children.
Gary played many different instruments as he had a great love of music and it always remained a huge part of his life. Whether leading music at church, CCD, playing in bands, or jamming at home; he always found joy in playing music. Gary instilled his love and appreciation of music and his faith in God in all his children. With his laidback personality and hilarious sense of humor he'd never met a stranger and was warm to all.
Gary is survived by his children Wendy (husband Richard), Adam (wife Brandi), April, Jennifer (husband Jacob), fifteen grandchildren, siblings Richard (wife Margaret), Cathy (husband Jim), Pat, and many nephews and nieces. He is reunited in death with his mother Ellen, father Harold, and youngest son Michael.
Services are scheduled Friday, April 24, 2015 at 1:30 p.m. at Bakersfield National Cemetery, E Bear Mountain Blvd, Arvin, CA.
