Obituary for Ervin Darnell Isom

Ervin Darnell Isom was the youngest of four children born to T. G. and Helen Isom on November 29th, 1962 in Memphis, Tennessee.

Ervin accepted Christ at the early age of 10 and was baptized at Mount Pisgah Christian Methodist Episcopal Church in Holly Springs, Mississippi. He was a member of Mississippi Boulevard Christian Church in Memphis, Tennessee and had been active in the Diaconate Ministry and New Members Ministry.

Ervin graduated from East High School in the Class of 1980 where he played football.
He attended Christian Brothers University where he majored in Business Administration.

Ervin was employed by FedEx Express where he worked his way up through the ranks of the company by starting off as a handler, ramp agent and was promoted into management early in his career. He received numerous leadership awards and "best of the best" manager awards for his outstanding leadership. Ervin received the 5-Star Award, the highest honor at FedEx, for outstanding management, leadership, coaching, and developing his staff to be the best. After nearly 34 years of service, Ervin retired from FedEx Express on November 30, 2017. He held the position of Hub Operations Manager at his retirement.

Ervin loved God, his family, and friends. He loved listening to gospel music, watching movies, and cooking (we loved his famous spaghetti and chocolate chip pie). He lived a life of service and touched the lives of many people throughout his life journeys.

On Monday, September 2nd, Ervin departed this life to be with the Lord. He was greatly admired and loved by all his family, friends, co-workers, and church family.

He leaves to cherish his memory: his beloved mother and father; two brothers, Charles Isom (Bonnie) of Little Rock, California and Marvin Isom (Cheryl) of Fairfax, Virginia; a sister, Sharon Isabel (Anthony) of Memphis, Tennessee; five nieces, Brandy Grey (Samuel) of Palmdale, California, Stephanie Lawrence (Kenny) of Lancaster, California, Quinesia Love (Quintin) of Bartlett, Tennessee, Crystal Isom of Little Rock, California and Tiara Isom of Fairfax, Virginia; two nephews, Nelson McEntee (Mandi) of Knoxville, Tennessee, and Taurean Isom of Fairfax, Virginia; six great-nieces, Alana Love, Samantha Grey, Laila Stewart, Samaya Grey, Kaitlyn Lawrence, and Alivia Love; one great-nephew Kenny Lawrence Jr; and a host of cousins, extended family and friends. Ervin also leaves to cherish his memory his best friend/brother, Jerry Harrison of Memphis, Tennessee.
