David Baker Flickinger

September 23rd, 1950 - January 29th, 2024

David Baker Flickinger was born on September 23, 1950 and passed away on January 29, 2024. Born and raised in Poland, Ohio, he was the younger son of the late Chester Albert Flickinger and Dorothy Mae Baker Flickinger, and was predeceased by his older brother, Jeffrey Flickinger. David is survived by his loving wife of forty nine years, Josephine "Jodie" Nephew Flickinger (married September 7, 1974); and his two daughters, Erin (Jared) Corduan of Mount Pleasant, SC and Katie (Kirk) Baston of Forest, VA; grandchildren Savannah, Wade, Abigail, and Adam. David is also survived by a large and loving extended family. David graduated from Youngstown University (BS in Biology) and University of Toledo (BS, MS in Pharmacy and MBA). After seventeen years in Toledo, Ohio, he left his Director of Pharmacy position at Mercy Hospital to take over the pharmacy at Providence Hospital in Columbia, South Carolina in 1990. He later moved to a position at Richland Memorial Hospital working in many areas of the pharmacy before transferring to Parkridge Hospital as a part time pharmacist, again wearing many hats as a pharmacist. His face lit up in a smile when talking about his daughters, Erin and Katie, his pride and joy. In his spare time, he enjoyed coaching their sports teams, and he dabbled in poetry, essay writing, and photography. In 2014, he was diagnosed with Parkinson's Disease, and in short order volunteered to be on the board of the Columbia Parkinson's Support Group (CPSG) giving lectures and explaining the pharmaceutical treatments available to Parkinson's patients. He was a dedicated Rock Steady Boxer, Tai Chi practitioner, and gym member with the aim of inspiring his fellow Parkinson's friends. As his condition continued to decline, he moved into Lexington Extended Care nursing home, and passed away from complications from late stage Parkinson's. The family would like to thank: CPSG, Leeza's Care Connection, Right at Home of West Columbia, First Light Home Care of West Columbia, his many physicians and medical teams, and the dedicated staff at Lexington Extended Care for their tireless support all through his illness. David's cremated remains will be buried at the Ramsey Creek Preserve in Westminster, SC. A celebration of life will be scheduled at a later date.

Dear family, My heart aches from the grief that you are suffering. Knowing of God's embracing love for you, continue looking to him when " He will wipe out all tears from our eyes, death, pain, and suffering will be no more. " - Revelation 21: 3,4 He says death is an " enemy that will be brought to nothing. " 1 Corinthians 15:26 It comforts our hearts to know this pain will be a thing of the past and through Christ the resurrection of our loved ones. We " do not sorrow just as the rest do who have no hope! " 1 Thessalonians 4:13 love from a stranger, [email protected]

My deepest sympathy to Dave’s family. I worked with Dave many years when at Richland. He was a wonderful individual and dedicated pharmacist for whom I had great respect.

A picture of The Grumps at my wedding. I’ll never forget the trip to a football game in Sumter when Flick had Dante convinced that the reason he seemed to attract mosquitoes was because he drank diet soda. Of course the other pharmacist (Ole) chimed in and agreed.

Sending love and prayers to Dave’s family, he loved Jodie and his daughters and grandchildren so very much. I will always cherish the memories from Richland, Parkridge, and our many coffee gossip talks thereafter.

I am so sorry to hear of Dave’s passing. Our paths crossed many times since he moved to SC. We both started at Providence and Richland around the same time. Most recently he was on the same unit as my Mom at Lexington Extended Care. He was a caring boss and pharmacist. He always talked so fondly of and was so proud of his girls. You all are in my thoughts and prayers. Charlotte Amick
