A child actor with a bass voice and a deadpan comedic delivery, George Karl Wentzlaff appeared in 10 films in the 1950s along with stars like Cary Grant, Marilyn Monroe and Shirley MacLaine. Retiring from show business at age 12, Wentzlaff finished school, served in the Navy during the Vietnam War, moved to Camp Meeker in the late 1970s and retired from the Postal Service a few years ago. Wentzlaff, a lifelong bachelor and cat lover, died of a heart attack June 13 at his Camp Meeker home. Kevin Braafladt of Santa Rosa, a longtime friend who went to check on Wentzlaff, found him in his bed the following day. He was 69.
