Arthur J. Schomer died peacefully in his own home in Bellevue, Washington on July 3, 2022 at 90 years old.
Arthur was born September 21, 1931 to Rose and Henry Schomer in Passaic, New Jersey. Younger brother to Lorraine, Arthur grew up in Passaic before attending The Wharton School at The University of Pennsylvania, graduating with a B.S. in Accounting.
After graduating, Arthur attended officer candidate school for the Navy in Newport, Rhode Island, before working in the supply corps in Atlanta, where he met his former wife, Sandy. To stay close to his family, Arthur was assigned to the shore and served as an auditor at the port of Newark while he got his MBA at Rutgers at night. After graduating, he began working as an accomplished accountant at a variety of firms in northern New Jersey and New York City before becoming a Management Consultant and Partner to help companies improve and expedite their internal processes.
Arthur raised his two children, Dale and Howard, in Teaneck, New Jersey with Sandy. After his mother, the beloved Rose Schomer died, Arthur moved to the suburbs of Philadelphia to be close to Dale’s family, right before his eldest grandchild was born. In Philadelphia, Arthur became an avid Eagles fan, taught accounting at a local college, and spent time with two of his grandchildren, Rachel and Emma. In 2010, Arthur moved with Dale’s family to Bellevue, Washington where he spent the remainder of his life.
Arthur was incredibly smart and enjoyed reading, music, traveling, and politics. He was a quiet man who lived a dignified life by the Jewish values with which he was both raised and raised his own children and grandchildren.
He is survived by his former wife, Sandy, his daughter and son, Dale and Howard (Kimberly), and his three grandchildren, Rachel, Emma, and Jordan. He will be remembered for his steadfast nature, unmatched wit and intellect, and his rich baritone voice accompanying himself on the piano.
