Obituary

Benjamin Bieber Schmick, III, 83, of Upper Allen Township, and formerly of Camp Hill, passed away Monday, August 10, 2020, in the Penn State Health Rehabilitation Hospital, Derry Township.

A 1955 graduate of Milton High School, Ben received his bachelor’s degree in history from Juniata College in 1959. He spent his life in Pennsylvania, and served honorably in the Pennsylvania Army National, 28th Infantry Division.

Upon retiring as the Comptroller of Revenue for the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, Ben and his late wife, Carolyn Smith Schmick, owned and operated an antique business specializing in fine china and crystal. Some of his greatest joys came from the arts, particularly theater, music and dance. Eternally curious and genuine, Ben loved meeting new people and was gifted with the rare ability to talk and connect with people from all walks of life, both at home and in his many travels.

Born in West Milton on February 4, 1937, he was the son of the late Benjamin Bieber Schmick, Sr., and Dorothy Ohl Schmick. Ben was preceded in death by his wife, Carolyn, on September 10, 2014; and by a daughter, Carolyn Elizabeth “Liz” Schmick on October 7, 2015.

He is survived by two sons, Michael Benjamin Schmick, husband of Eugenie Perret of Philadelphia, and David Neil Schmick, husband of Lynn Schmick, of Largo, FL; six grandchildren; and three great-grandchildren.

A private graveside service will be in Milton Harmony Cemetery with the Rev. Ellen Crawford True, his pastor, officiating. A service to celebrate Ben’s life will be held at a later date.

In lieu of flowers, the family requests memorial contributions be sent to Christ Presbyterian Church, Camp Hill, where Ben was a proud member.

Trefz & Bowser Funeral Home, Inc. 114 West Main Street, Hummelstown, is handling the arrangements.

Dear Michael and David,
Ben was our dear friend here at Messiah Village. We shared many wonderful conversations with Ben often going until 10 or 11 after dinner! He was so much fun and made us smile and laugh so many times. He also participated in our bible study and enjoyed enriching his faith. The last night he was here he attended bible study. It was the last time we saw him. He has been and will continue to be missed here at Messiah. Our newly formed friendship will be cherished forever.
