Schmoyer Funeral Home was founded in 1879 at its present location by Daniel Schmoyer, who was a carriage maker by trade. He continued the manufacture of horse drawn vehicles until his death in 1903.

Clinton L. A. Schmoyer, a son of Daniel, became a partner with his father in the early 1900's. He graduated from what is now Kutztown University and the Renouard School of Embalming in New York City.

Also active in banking and insurance businesses, and civic, fraternal, and service organizations, Clinton's career spanned seven decades until his death in 1971 at age 93.

Carl F. Schmoyer, Sr. joined his father, Clinton, as a licensed funeral director in 1931. A graduate of Muhlenberg College and the Renouard School in New York, he taught school and was principal of the Fogelsville Consolidated School during the Depression. He also was active in area organizations until his sudden death in 1968.

Carl F. Schmoyer, Jr. graduated from Gettysburg College in 1967 and thereafter the American Academy-McAllister Institute of Funeral Service in New York City in 1968.

He served his resident internship with Theodore and Arline Rabenold Trexler of Trexler Funeral Home, Allentown through 1970 and received his license in 1971. He subsequently purchased the Trexler firm when the Trexler's retired in 1978.

Carl F. Schmoyer III joined his father in the operation of both funeral businesses in 1990. A graduate of the funeral service program at Northampton County College, he is active in community and church organizations in western Lehigh County and is also an amateur radio operator.
