Ervin Lehnert, age 89, passed away peacefully and surrounded by his family at his home in Annapolis, on Monday, November 12, 2018. He was born on June 12, 1929, in Cameron Texas. He was the youngest of 6 children born to the late Richard and Philameno Lehnert. Ervin attended Cameron Texas schools and graduated in 1947. Following graduation, Ervin served in the United States Air Corp. He met his beloved late wife of 63 years, Florence, when he was stationed at Andrews Air Force Base. They married and moved to Silver Spring where they began their family. After his tour of duty, Ervin became employed by the Central Intelligence Agency. In 1965 Ervin, Florence, and their two sons moved to Davidsonville where they remained for 27 years. After raising their family, Ervin and Florence moved to Heritage Harbor in Annapolis. Ervin retired in 1995 and was awarded Intelligence Achievement Award.
Ervin was of the Catholic faith. After moving to Davidsonville, he became a member of Holy Family Catholic Church in Davidsonville. He enjoyed attending services, and rarely missed a Sunday for 50+ years. Ervin enjoyed vegetable gardening. He was an avid sports fan and cherished victories from the Baltimore Orioles and Washington Redskins. Throughout his life, he enjoyed keeping up with current events via daily newspapers and television broadcasts. He was a devoted, and loving husband, father and grandfather.
