It is with a heavy heart and an overwhelming sense of loss that we announce the passing of Stephen J Schmerge, who was President of our company for many years. On Friday, February 25, 2022, Stephen passed away at the age of 74. Steve is survived by his wife Elizabeth, and his sons John, and Pierce.
Steve was a loving husband to Elizabeth for 48 years. In their time together, Steve and Elizabeth enjoyed yearly trips to the Outer Banks where he would pass the days reading and watching the waves. When Steve was not at the beach, he never missed either of his children's sporting events; be it a pre-season soccer scrimmage or a weekend long wrestling tournament. He was always on the sidelines screaming encouragement. Steve extended that love and encouragement unconditionally to all those around him.
Steve graduated from Villanova University, and joined Fanelli, Harley, Harper & Associates in 1990 as an integral part of our agency specializing in Commercial Lines insurance.
Steve's gentle personality, unwavering faith, and sense of humor will be missed by all who knew him.
