Harvey Charles Zerbe

July 25, 1931 — October 26, 2021

Harvey Charles Zerbe, 90, of Camp Hill, passed away on Tuesday, October 26, 2021 in his residence with his family by his side.

He was a retired train inspector with the former Pennsylvania Railroad, Penn Central Railroad and Conrail. He was also a stock broker with the former Itterly-Walter, Harrisburg. Harvey was a U.S. Air Force veteran of the Korean War where he served with the Strategic Air Command.

Harvey was a graduate of Mahanoy Joint High School, Dalmatia and was a member of Trinity Evangelical Lutheran Church, Camp Hill and the Mandata American Legion Post 504, Herndon, PA. He enjoyed the outdoors, hunting, fishing, camping, going to the beach with family, traveling the Eastern United States and was a huge Philadelphia Phillies fan. But more than anything, Harvey cherished the time spent with his family, especially his grandchildren.

Harvey was born in Dalmatia, the son of the late Charles R. and Cardie (Witmer) Zerbe.

He is survived by his loving wife of more than 65 years, Gloria (Harris) Zerbe; daughters, Laurie Stockdale of Hampden Twp. and Pamela Gebhart and husband Bradley of Lancaster; three grandchildren, David and James Stockdale and Katelynn Gebhart; and a great grandson Harvey Jude Stockdale.
