David Pohlit

October 9, 1954 ~ September 27, 2021 (age 66)


David Pohlit, 66, of Kill Devil Hills, NC, passed away Sept. 27, 2021, at Flagstaff Medical Center, Flagstaff, AZ while surrounded by his wife and three children. Born October 9, 1954, in Johnstown, PA son of the late Stephen and Helen (Lugar) Pohlit. He was preceded in death by his sister, Kathleen Flaherty. Dave was a loving husband, devoted father, doting Pop, and pain-in-the-ass brother. Calling it quits from the working world as an accountant of over 35 years back in 2014, Dave enjoyed retired life to the fullest. Relocating to the Outer Banks of North Carolina over three years ago with his “funny honey” of 45 years, Cheryl, Dave enjoyed soaking up the sun-saturated salt air, saddling up to even the loneliest of barstools, and watching the “Master Painter” splash the evening sky with vibrant sunsets from the deck of his beach-born home. Dave and Cheryl loved to travel, making multiple cross-country road trips to explore all that this wonderful country has to offer, always making time to send their beautiful grandchildren postcards from various destinations along the way. As a native of Western PA, Dave bled black-and-gold as a die-hard Steelers, Penguins, and Pirates fan, truly despising all things purple-and-black. A true lover of life, Dave relished in laughter, never failing to crack a joke at the most inopportune of moments; he was the epitome of “work hard, play hard.” Although never one to mince words, if you had time for a drink, Dave had time for you. Dave is survived by his wife, Cheryl Lynn (Cowan) Pohlit, Kill Devil Hills, NC; daughter, Lyndsey Stauch, married to Bryan Stauch, Eldersburg, MD; daughter Allison Braglio, married to Tony Braglio, Finksburg, MD; son D. J., married to the former Courtney Walters, Olney, MD; grandchildren Zoe Bella Stauch, Sophia Rae Braglio, Wyatt Anthony Braglio, and Caroline Ellis Pohlit; and brothers Stephen Pohlit, Jr., Tampa, FL and Stanley Pohlit, Sinking Spring, PA. Dave also had many nieces, nephews, cousins, and close friends who loved him dearly. Services an interment will be private.
