Robert J. Ehrlich, Sr., 92, passed away on May 24, in Davis, CA, surrounded by his children and grandchildren.

Born in NYC to Louis C. Ehrlich and Margaret McGauley Ehrlich, Bob graduated from Plainville High School in 1941 and was a Plainville resident for most of his life.

A World War II veteran, Bob worked at Pratt and Whitney Aircraft for over 30 years, and after retiring volunteered at New Britain General Hospital and coached computer classes at the Plainville Senior Center. Hobbies he loved include sailing, woodworking, and bird carving. He loved the coast of Maine, and with his wife, spent countless happy hours working on their summer home in Kittery, ME. Bob was a loving family man, and his kindness, humor, and knowledge were appreciated by many. He will be missed.
