He was a brilliant person who did not finish school but educated himself by reading. He managed the Sinton Dairy bottling plant for many years. Ernest wrote letters to the newspaper in support of Single Tax as had Joseph Sinton. Fred Handke, who spent several years as a child living in Joseph Sinton's house on the Hill next to the dairy remembers him as a likeable loner. The extraordinarily high ranking of the Sinton product was due to the dedicated efforts of Ernest, in his capacity of plant manager. "He was pleasant to the children when they visited the plant, but when he said to do something, you obeyed at once, but didn't know quite why. He was just that way." (Fred Handke)

His obituary in the Colorado Springs Gazette Telegraph published on Friday 5 March 1948 reads
Ernest A. Sinton, Member of Pioneer Family Here, Dies
Ernest A. Sinton, vice president of the Sinton Dairy company, and a lifelong resident of Colorado Springs, died Thursday night at a local hospital, after a short illness. He was a graduate of the Colorado Springs High school and Colorado College and a veteran of World War I, and was a member of one of the best known pioneer families in the city. He was a member of the Knife and Fork Club.
Mr. Sinton, who was the son of the late Mr. and Mrs. George Sinton, was born in Colorado Springs December 17, 1890. He was a nephew of Mr. and Mrs. M. M. Sinton, 509 S. El Paso St., and a brother of Herbert G. Sinton, president of the Sinton Dairy company and former city councilman. He is also survived by his wife, Mrs. Marguerite G. Sinton, 917 Union Blvd.

The burial date given by the Evergreen Cemetery website is over four months from the death date, so one of them is presumably wrong.
Ernest was self employed and therefore did not have a Social Security number, so no SSDI record is available to check dates.
