David John Ehrlichman, 61, died Thursday, August 5, 2021, with his loving wife, Sandra at his side. Twin Oaks Memorial Gardens and Funeral Home is entrusted with arrangements. A celebration of Dave’s life will be held at a later date to be determined.

Mr. Ehrlichman was fondly remembered by his friends, family, and community as being gracious and humble; he cherished everybody he encountered and never met a stranger. He will be remembered as a humanitarian, teacher, and generous man who loved to share his time and knowledge. Dave was well-loved professionally by his peers. Many of those he mentored and who commented on his skill, professionalism, and what a gentleman he was will hold him in their hearts forever.

He was born to the late Gloria and David Ehrlichman in Pittsburg, PA, and grew up in Clinton, NC. He valued his education and went on to attend East Carolina University, graduating with his degree in Chemistry. He fell in love with flying and went on to attend Spartan Flight School in Tulsa, OK. He was a man of many talents, but his passion was his family, his store (Wildbirds Unlimited), and his career.

After getting married on November 26, 2011, Dave and Sandra spent their spare time traveling the United States and the world. He has a wonderful sense of adventure.

His career began at 9E Airlines, where he spent over 20 years as a pilot. After a fulfilling career at 9E, he completed his career at FedEx where he served as a Professional Instructor of the Boeing 777 airplane.

He is survived by his devoted wife of 9 years, Sandra Ehrlichman; children, Amanda Freiwald (Chris), Geoffrey Harrison (Amy), Jeremy Pickens, Trevor Pickens, and Bailey Pickens; grandchildren, Charlotte Grace, Noah, Jack, Macy, and Amelia; two siblings, Diane Taylor (Jay) and Dwight Ehrlichman (Gaylen); father-in-law, Grant Housley; sister-in-law, Lisa Housley Cox; nephews, John, Dylan, and Dustin; and a niece, Kathryn.

To honor Mr. Ehrlichman’s charitable life, donations in his name may be made to The American Kidney Foundation, American Heart Association, American Lung Association, or a charity of the donor’s choosing.
