Ernest "Ernie" Harold Woodfeldt grew up in Pinole and graduated Pinole High School in 1974. He continued his education at San Francisco State University where he earned a BA and an MBA. He worked for 28 years for Pacific Bell/SBC/AT&T as a Senior Financial Analyst.
Ernie was a faithful servant and a man of God. His highest personal achievement was raising his son, Scott Woodfeldt. He loved his family and his friends deeply and everyone enjoyed his company and his great "booming" laugh. He was active in many outdoor activities: camping, hiking, swimming, river rafting and biking.
Ernie will be deeply missed by his son Scott Woodfeldt of Dublin, CA, his mother, Lois Woodfeldt of Vacaville, his sisters, Paula (Dan) Eeds of Pinole, CA and Rita Orr of Vacaville, CA, and his cousins, nieces and nephews. His father, Arthur J. Woodfeldt, preceded him in death.
