Ernest was born on May 17, 1933, to Lester Jefferson Weldon and Oma Cleo (Price) Weldon, at Madill, Okla. He married  LaTrelle Andrews on November 4, 1956, in Russett, Okla.
Ernest worked many years in the soda pop and theater business and retired from Carmike Theaters. He was an avid fan of any football game he could watch, but if he could say he loved one team, it would be the Green Bay Packers. He loved supporting his grandchildren and great-grandchildren when they played any sports. Any time he could get his family together to play an ongoing volleyball game, he was there and would serve as the captain of his team. Over the years, he bowled on many teams. Some of his teams would have all of the family. Ernest was a member of Madill Baptist Church but was presently in attendance at Oakview Baptist Church.
He was preceded in death by his father, Lester Jefferson Weldon; mother, Oma Cleo “Chig” Allen; and step-father, Ed Allen; and one sister, Melba Jean Flint.
